‘What I would give to hide in a bunny costume again’: Sean Spicer’s furry past revealed
It turns out White House press secretary Sean Spicer has been hopping around the White House long before President Donald Trump hired him to face the media each day. He once enjoyed a career as the White House Easter bunny helping George W with his eggs.
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.

@seanspicer don't worry, spicy, you'll always be just a silly rabbit. 👌🏽— McLOVIN from Hawaii (@irinaviscardi) March 3, 2017
While much of the reaction was in good spirits, others took the opportunity to deliver more pointed comments to Spicer.

@seanspicer What we would give to have you in a bunny suit rather that lying to the American public daily! #russiagate#WeKnow— ThatGirlAtTheParty (@tgatp) March 3, 2017
Honestly, dressing up as the Easter Bunny is probably the least embarrassing thing Sean Spicer has ever done in the White House to date. pic.twitter.com/7QKoIqHWp6— Jordan Uhl (@JordanUhl) 3 марта 2017 г.
