‘What I would give to hide in a bunny costume again’: Sean Spicer’s furry past revealed
Spicer was President George W Bush’s Easter bunny back in 2008, when he helped out at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll. At the time, Spicer was an assistant US trade representative for media and public affairs.
According to an old interview in Politico, Spicer, who was then in the second year of his bunny career, described the bunny suit as “very hot,” although it was likely nothing compared to the heat he feels in his current role.

In fact, the press secretary appeared wistful for the simpler days, sharing a tweet featuring him wearing the suit, saying, “The good ole days – what I would give to hide in a bunny costume again.”
Spicer’s hidden past has inspired an explosion of mirth and jokes, from claims Spicer is a “furry” to calls for the press secretary to go back to his simpler life as an Easter egg gifter.
