Sean Spicer RESIGNS Over Trump's Latest Move!

Sean Spicer is out!

After months of having one foot out the door of the White House, Donald Trump's latest move was the last straw for hotheaded press secretary.

According to The New York Times, Spicey's exit was over frustration in Trump hiring New York hedge fund creator Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director.

The POTUS reportedly asked that Sean stay on, but he refused as he would have to start answering to the new guy.

The departure is hardly a surprise as deputy Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken over most of the White House press briefings — when they even still happen.

Trump has already tried to remove cameras from the press room and reportedly toyed with the idea of canceling the traditional briefing altogether, a huge, probably inevitable move in his war on the press.

What part Scaramucci will play in the tug-of-war is unclear, but if it's a bridge too far for Trump alternative fact-peddler Sean Spicer, you can bet it's not good.

This ride couldn't last forever.

After months of being plagued by scandal and criticism, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick resigned from the company on Tuesday under pressure from investors.

The New York Times reports that five of the ride-sharing company's major investors demanded that Kalanick step down immediately, citing a change in leadership was necessary.

The 40-year-old co-founded Uber in 2009 and was essential in building it to the transportation titan it is today — but his leadership skills were called into question after a growing number of workplace culture scandals.

Kalanick took an undetermined leave of absence last week amid the company's controversies, including a number of sexual harassment allegations and video footage of Kalanick berating a bankrupt Uber driver in March.

Investors had enough, and reportedly made their demand for Kalanick to immediately step down in a letter titled

However, instead of being called on, the businessman only answered questions from Christian Broadcasting Network and TownHall.com, two conservative news outlets.

Sadly, this isn't the first time liberal news organizations have been passed on. According to the senior White House correspondent:

Donald Trump may be in the dark when it comes to the content of the executive orders he's signing, but his White House is in the dark more than figuratively.

According to a report from The New York Times (the same one that told us Drumpf didn't even know he was giving Steve Bannon so much power), Trump's team is a skeleton crew made up of "no more than a half-dozen" aides who have "virtually no familiarity with the workings of the White House or federal government."

In the resurfaced transcript, Deborah and Drumpf have a debate over the phrase "all men are created equal," which appears in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. The pair were initially discussing the term in context to The Apprentice, the show's wide range of contestants, and what makes someone a "champion."

Here's how the edited and final version of the discussion appeared in the newspaper:

Alec Baldwin Gets Paid HOW MUCH Per SNL Episode for His Donald Trump Impression??

no title

Based on Donald Trump's cabinet picks, many feel he may be exploiting the presidency for his own financial interests.

But the same can't be said for Alec Baldwin and his hilarious impersonation of the president-elect on Saturday Night Live!!

The actor has been receiving praise for his highly publicized incarnation of the incoming POTUS on the live sketch show — already nabbing a Critics' Choice Award for the recurring role.

But despite the 58-year-old's many accolades and veteran status on the NBC show, he actually doesn't make all that much for appearing as the businessman-turned politician!

In a New York Times profile of Baldwin released on Monday, the actor discussed how he approached the role and the impact playing the cartoonish president-elect has had on him personally.

However, the biggest revelation from the staunch Democrat's interview was that he only makes
