Spicer heading out on the paid speaking circuit

“Audiences around the world will benefit from the same candor, wit and insight that Spicer brought to the White House briefing room,” Worldwide Speakers Group writes about Spicer in its pitch to potential customers, an early copy of which was reviewed by POLITICO.

But at his first briefing in January, Spicer falsely claimed the size of the crowd at Trump’s inauguration was bigger than President Barack Obama’s crowd eight years earlier, despite photographic evidence to the contrary – and then refused to take questions from reporters. In July, CNN preemptively said it would not hire Spicer, citing credibility issues related to that and other false statements made from the podium.
