  • Scaramucci supported Trump's candidacy and was part of his transition team

The former White House press secretary did admit that some of the skits on late night TV to crack him up but didn't say which ones actually made him laugh.

Hours earlier, Spicer resigned from his post, after Trump named Wall Street-er Anthony Scaramucci to be his new White House Communications Director. But there are some skits that I've seen on late-night television that I had to crack up at, so sometimes it can be amusing.

Spicer said Friday that he found some of the late-night comedy show skits amusing.

Hannity broached the subject by saying that he kind of "had a missing chip" - then joked that his comment would "make a great headline on Mediaite - but then asked if it was hard for Spicer when "SNL" would "go after" him".

Spicer was lampooned regularly on the weekly variety show.

December 22, 2016: After helping guide the Trump campaign in the final months of its White House run, Spicer is rewarded by being named press secretary. "It was stupid, or silly, or malicious".

While McCarthy's portrayal of Spicer won critical acclaim, it reportedly hurt the press secretary's standing with the President. Priebus also said the show sometimes went over the top, in fact, he said the show is so far over the top that he believes they should offer equal time to a different opinion. "You have to have a little bit of a thick skin if you're going to do this". He added, "I'd rather us be talking about the issues that the president is so committed to helping Americans on, but you know, it's a part of American culture". In a February interview with Extra coming on the heels of McCarthy's first sketch as the press secretary, Spicer described the parody as "funny" but suggested that the comedian dial down her characterization and that she "slow down on the gum chewing; way too many pieces in there".
