Sean Spicer Gets a New Job Cashing In On White House Fame

Published

on

SAN JUAN (Puerto Rico Buzz) – Sean Spicer, a former White House Press Secretary for President Donald Trump, gets a new job cashing in on his fame.

Spicer has signed on with Worldwide Speakers Group to speak at trade shows, lecture series, and others, according to Politico.

Worldwide Speakers Group is counting on Spicer’s “candor” in order to make the sale for potential speaking opportunities.

“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,” said WSG on a statement to Politico.

Paid speeches will not be his only source of income. It is expected that Spicer will be publishing a book, possibly about his days with the Trump administration.

As Politico notes, the most famous former press secretary, Scott McClellan, also wrote a book with his take on the George W. Bush White House.

According to the Observer in 2008, a unnamed top Republican who knew McClellan well said of the book: “It’s really disgusting… I don’t want to get down in the gutter with the guy… He was nothing before he was hired by Bush.”

A New York Times editorial said: “This is the same Scott McClellan who presumably had a big role in creating the White House’s communications strategy and joined in the ‘culture of deception’ with such zeal that we lost count of the times he ridiculed critics of the war and questioned their patriotism.”

McClellan later endorsed Barack Obama in 2008.

However, Spicer may not have much to say since he spent a very short time at the White House, as opposed to McClellan.

During his brief tenure at the White House, Spicer made a name for himself for continuously being at war with the media.

The White House press briefings and Spicer became the subject of ridicule by the world’s observers.

Comedian Melissa McCarthy brought Spicer into infamy by portraying him as unhinged press secretary during Saturday Night Live. The world laughed in agreement.

Rosselló Asks Police Officers to Return to Work

Published

on

(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Buzz) – Gov. Ricardo Rosselló asked members of the Puerto Rico Police Department to return to work, Jan. 8.

The massive absenteeism of police officers has been largely attributed to the lack of overtime pay in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, but some say it goes back even further.

“I ask of any partner of the uniformed force that is not attending [work]at this moment – I ask of them to return,” said Rosselló. It’s not just about giving a message about a series of initiatives, but it’s a matter of safety for our people.

Rosselló is currently evaluating how police officers that missed work, will be reprimanded.

“We’re establishing which administrative measures will take place,” said Rosselló. There’s a lot of information that needs to be gathered.

At times, approximately 8,000 police officers have missed worked, out of about 14,000 islandwide.

Police union representatives have said that police officers are using their sick and holiday time available.
