Wallace: Spicer's Resignation Shows 'Tremendous Disarray' in White House
Chris Wallace said today's resignation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is an indication of the "tremendous disarray" inside the West Wing.
Spicer's resignation came after President Trump offered the communications director role to Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci.
The "Fox News Sunday" anchor said the White House appears to be in disarray on both policy and communications.
"This was supposed to be Made in America week. ... How many people even remember that?" said Wallace.
He said President Trump has not been able to stay on one message, frustrating senior staff members.
Wallace said this week is a perfect example, as Trump moved from a key meeting with senators on health care reform to an interview with three New York Times reporters in which he criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appeared to set "red lines" on Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts said Scaramucci met with President Trump at 10:00am ET this morning and was offered the top communications role.
Spicer, apparently objecting to the move, then tendered his resignation.
Roberts said chief strategist Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus - who brought Spicer onboard - were not consulted on the decision by the president to hire Scaramucci.
Wallace agreed with Roberts' description of a "Game of Thrones quality" to the current White House, with "various power centers colliding with each other."
"In the end, it's all about policy and getting things through in Congress," he said, explaining the populist vs. globalist disagreements within the administration.
