Such presidential outbursts often confounded Mr Spicer, who found himself reverting to standard Washington retorts to respond.

Anthony Scaramucci, named Donald Trump's new White House communications director, is a millionaire former hedge fund investor who shores up the stable of bankers in the president's inner circle.

That wasn't true, but Mr Spicer went one better.

After just six months in Mr Trump's service, Mr Spicer's reputation is in pieces. The incident sparked myriad memes on the internet of Spicer "hiding in the bushes".

"So Mr. Spicer waited until sundown-after his young staffers had left-to take matters into his own hands", the Journal wrote. Pointing out that the leadership in the House and Senate were also on the same page as the president, he said that "we need to get results for the American people".

'Sean leaving doesn't mean that Sean isn't going to be out there supporting President Trump and it doesn't mean that President Trump isn't going to be out there supporting Sean Spicer, ' Priebus said.

Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but has struggled to explain why his eldest son and key aides met Russian operatives who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. He's also been considered as head of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

"It's been an unbelievable honor and privilege", Spicer said. Certainly, something about Mr Spicer seemed to needle the president.

During his first appearance before the media as a White House employee on Friday, Scaramucci apologized for his comments on Fox Business and said Trump doesn't let him forget about it. Jay Carney, a press secretary in former President Barack Obama's administration, now works for Amazon.

During a 37-minute charm offensive, the Wall Street financier fielded tough questions from reporters, praised the US President and even cracked a few self-deprecating jokes.

The announcement of Sean Spicer's resignation comes after 182 days in the job, and according to data by CNN, is one of the shortest tenures for a White House Press Secretary. Most of these have also been off-camera.

It has, by no means, been a ideal job by Spicer.

The outgoing press secretary has had a tumultuous six months in his role, not least for his efforts in trying to play down collusion between Trump's team and Moscow during the USA presidential election.
