Sean Spicer’s Public Venmo Receives Lots of Requests
From sharing an Onion article about himself, to tweeting out what some have speculated are his own passwords, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer may not be the most technologically-savvy person. So it comes as no surprise that the internet has reportedly discovered his public Venmo account.
The podcast “Who? Weekly” first tweeted about the existence of Spicer’s rumored account after it was discovered by a fan of the podcast. Venmo is a mobile app that allows people to send and request money from each other, so naturally users took advantage of the opportunity to ask Spicer to cover their expenses.

After Spicer claimed that demonstrators who protested President Donald Trump’s immigration ban were paid, one person asked him to put his money where his mouth is.

Others threw in a reference to Kellyanne Conway’s made-up Bowling Green Massacre story.

A couple of people were stressed out about the last couple of weeks, and wanted some reimbursement.

Unsurprisingly, people got political.

But those who got a response learned that Spicer wasn’t feeling too generous.

Whether or not these Venmo users get paid, the situation may make great material for Melissa McCarthy’s next “Saturday Night Live” appearance.
