Sean Spicer has resigned as the White House Press Secretary today, releasing a short statement confirming the news.

According to sources familiar with the story who spoke to the New York Times, Spicer resigned on foot of Donald Trump hiring financier Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director. So, what does this mean for Melissa McCarthy and SNL? Well, although SNL is off the air, it means we'll no longer get to see Spicey Baby on our screens, for one thing.

But more than that, it also means we won't have Sean Spicer desperately trying to defend Trump's latest f*ck-ups or gaffes - all of which would be funny if it wasn't so tragic.
