Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer discussed his new book, The Briefing, in the Lohrfink Auditorium on Sept. 17. In a conversation moderated by Mo Elleithee (SFS ‘94), executive director of GU Politics, Spicer also touched on his experience in the Trump administration, the importance of the press in politics, and the importance of bipartisan conversation.

Hayley Grande (COL ‘21) introduced Spicer and detailed his activities since leaving the White House, which have included speaking engagements around the world, founding a strategic consulting firm, RigWil LLC, and serving as an adviser to the Super PAC America First.

Elleithee began the discussion by explaining that he and Spicer have known each other for many years, since Spicer was the RNC communications director at the same time that Elleithee was in the same position at the DNC.
