It was the shot—okay, press release—heard 'round the world Friday: Sean Spicer, White House press secretary and serial gum-eater (opens in new tab), has officially resigned, according to the New York Times (opens in new tab).

This should shock pretty much no one who has had even a remote grasp on the news, as President Trump has reportedly been unhappy with Spicer's press conference performance over the past few months.

What does this mean for America? For starters, Spicer will now be allowed to hide in as many bushes (opens in new tab) as he'd like, and the White House will need to put out a listing on Indeed for a new permanent press secretary.

But where we'll really notice the hit is on Saturday Night Live, where Melissa McCarthy has been delighting viewers with hilarious impressions of Sean Spicer being Sean Spicer for the past seven months.

But because we're not good with goodbyes, we refuse to accept that her SNL reign is over, and instead turn toward our denial toward the past by re-watching all of McCarthy's best Sean Spicer impressions ever. Scroll through to take a very nostalgic trip down memory lane, and then, please, a moment of silence for this tragedy.
