When Sean Spicer wants something, he apparently gets it — even if he has to take it from junior staffers.
The former White House Press Secretary resigned on Friday, and that means we won’t be getting our steady stream of hilarious bloopers from Spicey anymore. But the Wall Street Journal shared one of the best Spicer anecdotes yet that happened on his way out the door — at sundown, he snuck out the door with a mini-fridge used by White House junior researchers.
WSJ outlines the heist:
Less than a month into his new job, White House press secretary Sean Spicer needed to keep his food and drink cold. He wanted a mini-fridge.
He dispatched a top aide to a nearby executive office building where junior research employees are crammed into a room, surviving on Lean Cuisine frozen lunches. Mr. Spicer wants your icebox, the aide said, according to people familiar with the incident. They refused to give it up.
So Mr. Spicer waited until sundown–after his young staffers had left–to take matters into his own hands. He was spotted by a fellow White House official lugging the icebox down the White House driveway after 8 p.m.
Fridge-Ghazi has delighted Twitter, and they’re not letting Spicer off the hook easily.
It all makes sense now. Spicer was afraid to quit for so long bc he knew the mini-fridge story would get out. https://t.co/HNb767WPtb
