Sean Michael Spicer (born September 23, 1971) is the White House press secretary and former communications director for President Donald Trump.
Spicer was communications director of the Republican National Committee, from 2011 to 2017, and its chief strategist, from 2015 to 2017. On December 22, 2016, Spicer was named as Trump's White House press secretary, and two days later, he was also named White House communications director. He assumed both positions with Trump's inauguration on January 20, 2017.
Spicer's first official statement as press secretary was criticized for providing what became called "alternative facts" regarding the inauguration's attendance numbers. In his statement, he also claimed that the inauguration was "the most watched ever", but subsequently stated that he was referring not only to live attendees at the ceremony or those watching on TV, but also viewers who watched the inauguration online. However, no conclusive figures are available for online viewers, and so such a claim cannot be substantiated. Wikipedia
