White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is having money troubles.
No, not those sort of money troubles — rather, it’s his Venmo account. It’s recently come to light that Spicer is a member of the money-sharing app. Signs point to his account being legitimate: The selfie profile picture and the payments the account has made (to other people with the last name Spicer).
Spicer has not yet made his account private (and still hasn’t, as of press time). So anyone can send him money — or a request for money. And once people realized this, they didn’t hold back. Which means the next time Spicer checks his account, he’ll see some new requests — for all sorts of things.
The victims of the non-existent Bowling Green Massacre.
Melania Trump’s NYC security team.
Others, though, paid Spicer.
Some saw it as a chance to give him their two cents — literally and figuratively.
Or funds for a new Venmo photo.
Spicer’s had a busy run in the White House so far. On day one, he made false claims that President Trump’s inauguration was the most-attended in history. His habit of chewing (and swallowing) 35 pieces of Orbit cinnamon gum per day, as well as his past Twitter feud with Dippin Dots, made headlines. And he was immortalized by Melissa McCarthy, who played him in a sketch on SNL.
Luckily for Spicer, however, Venmo does have a decline button.
