Sean Spicer Signs With Top Television Lawyer

The New York Post reports:

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer today signed with renowned attorney Bob Barnett, who represents a host of top politicians and TV news personalities, as he negotiates a big TV deal.

Sources say Spicer signed with Barnett and Michael O’Connor of Williams & Connolly Thursday after taking meetings with all the major TV and news networks including NBC, CBS and Fox News last week.

The former press secretary had also been courted by all the top Hollywood talent agencies, but sources said he chose Barnett, who is based with Williams & Connolly in Washington D.C. because of his track record with politicians and TV correspondents. Michael O’Connor is a partner at the firm.

    Does this mean he won’t be going away?

  • Henry Auvil

    Why would any television network want this clown?

  • shellback

    Reward the evil. Glorify the liars. Venerate the traitors.
    What a country.

  • Butch

    So working for Trump wasn’t degrading and sleazy enough? Down we go!

    Well fuck … clearly the way to make it in America today is to get into politics as a republikkklan, be a complete incompetent embarrassment at your job, lie and grift and evade responsibility at every turn, resign your appointed job after just a few months, and then land either a book or a TV deal that rakes in millions of dollars.

      Thank you.

      What I don’t get about this story is that Sean Spicer is perhaps the premier charismatically-challenged human being on the planet today. I’d rather watch my kitchen faucet drip than watch him.

      Why in heaven’s name would anyone involved in the world of TV be interested in him?

      …then working-class American throws a nutty at the injustice of it all, and Republicans convince them that the lubruls caused it all. It’s a tiresome cycle.

      I kind of like Spicey. He always appeared totally stressed-out. He bottomed so much it made him angry. But you could tell, poor guy. But unfortunately, I think there is no other role for him other than yanked bitch.

        I am very happy (proud, even) to say that I have never viewed an episode of “Dancing Wtih The Stars”. (I did watch a couple episodes of “Strictly Come Dancing” in which Ben Cohen participated …. sigh.)

        BUT … I would tune in to watch Spicey if he were paired with a hunky tall latino and Spicey had to follow.

    … because of his track record with politicians and TV correspondents . . . because of his hack record. Fixed it for you.

    • clay

      Really! He did not do well in front of the cameras and it appears that the only reason they were turned off was because of him.

  • Tawreos

    I guess the secret to getting ahead in Washington is to really suck at your White House job and then get millions from a news network to suck at that job as well.

  • Gustav2

    MSNBC needs more Teapublicans!

  • Gregory B

    I guess this means he won’t be appearing on that dancing with stars show.

  • Rick

    That won’t last. His only real value is as a target for comedic parody.

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    How stupid are television execs? Nobody wants to see this man. He’s as charming as microwaved fish.

  • pj

    another option….go away

  • Rex

    So, it’s a no for Dancing with the Stars?

    • Yixing’s Fluffer

      He was worried Scaramucci was going to out-foxtrot him.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        I see what you did.

  • bkmn

    I can see NBC signing him. Management @NBC seem to be determined to make sure I don’t watch their ‘news’ any more.

  • Bryan

    You’ll make it in the big-time yet, Spicey!

    • Jonathan Smith

      no. he wont.

      • Bryan

        Haha. No, he won’t.

  • Natty Enquirer

    I’m thinking sitcom.

  • Smokey

    He’s going to use his real talent to star in a reboot of Captain Kangaroo…

  • Michael R
  • Ernest Endevor

    He’s joining Will and Grace?

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      More likely Twin Peaks as a Black Lodge inhabitant.

  • William

    I thought he was the new Jenny Craig spokesman.

  • Jack


  • Michael Hampton

    It’s disgusting. These guys are going to get cushy jobs after destroying the fabric of our country.

  • DaveMiller135

    I just read the headline, and I was wondering what he and Nancy Grace would have to say to each other.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Reprising his Easter Bunny role?

  • JWC

    Sean, good for you, now please go quietly and have a great life

  • andrew

    After attempting to defend every Trump lie, what credibility does Spicer have?
