Famously impersonated by comedian Melissa McCarthy, Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, has a book coming out next summer.
But don't expect him to criticize his former boss, President Donald Trump. Spicer's target will be some of the media outlets he once sparred with.
According to Regnery Publishing, a leading conservative house, the book will offer a look at what really happened off camera.
“Sean Spicer takes readers behind the scenes of his turbulent tenure as President Trump’s press secretary, shedding new light on the headline-grabbing controversies of the Trump administration’s first year” - Regnery Publishing
“Sean Spicer takes readers behind the scenes of his turbulent tenure as President Trump’s press secretary, shedding new light on the headline-grabbing controversies of the Trump administration’s first year” the publisher described on its website.
Spicer’s combative demeanor with the press made his daily press briefings ‘must see TV’. He had a contentious relationship with the so-called "mainstream press" and is remembered for his ridiculed statement that the president's inauguration was the most widely seen in history.
Spicer quit as press secretary in July, just six months into Trump's presidency. Spicer said in a statement that Trump faced "rampant hostility" from the "mainstream media" and that he will reveal a side to the administration little known to the general public.
Regnery Publishing announced Tuesday that Spicer's book will come out next summer. Its working title is "The Briefing."
