The public speaking performed by Sean Spicer during his roughly half-year-long run as White House press secretary was unimpressive. He said a number of false things. He became so flustered and exasperated at the lectern that “Saturday Night Live” did a series of skits off his work. His even-Hitler-didn’t-use-chemical-weapons moment helped to define the early months of the Trump White House.
In July, Sarah Huckabee Sanders took over as press secretary following Spicer’s announcement of his resignation, though he stayed at the White House through Aug. 31.
Yet he’ll be paid to speak again at least once, as Politico reports. Investment bank Rodman & Renshaw will welcome Spicer to address its annual conference. And the former Trump mouthpiece has signed with Worldwide Speakers Group to monetize reminiscences on his White House mantras, including, “The president’s tweet speaks for itself.” Whoever wrote the WSG statement on Spicer’s accession must have missed his performances at the White House briefing room: “We are thrilled to provide Sean for our major trade association, corporate, university and public lecture series customers around the world. With his well-known candor and extensive experience, Sean is uniquely qualified to help audiences understand how the political environment will impact them now and in the future.”
