White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned this afternoon following the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.
Scaramucci's expected appointment has caused great upheaval in the West Wing, with chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon — along with Spicer — expressing opposition to him getting the high-profile job. [...]
The official added that Scaramucci had the backing of Trump son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell.
According to widespread reports, Priebus, Bannon, and Spicer opposed Scaramucci because he doesn't know anything about being a communications director. Trump himself reportedly made the decision to hire Scaramucci without informing any of them of his decision before it was publicly announced.
But why does Trump like him so much?
Source close to WH press shop tells me Trump "wanted to give Scaramucci something to do because he likes him on TV"

Meanwhile, Sean Spicer is not the only member of the Trump regime who has resigned within the last day.
The spokesman for Trump's legal team, Mark Corallo, and Trump's chief attorney Marc Kasowitz both resigned last night.
John Dowd, who joined the legal team in mid-June, is replacing Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, as lead attorney representing the president, Dowd confirmed to ABC News.
The newest lawyer in the group, Ty Cobb, will take the lead in managing the team's external response to the Russia probe.
Mark Corallo, who was spokesman for Trump's legal team, resigned Thursday.
As you can see, "Made in America' week is going well.
