About

Sean Spicer Steals Mini-Fridge refers to a series of online jokes and photoshops based on an anecdote in that appeared in the newspaper the Wall Street Journal. The Journal article alleges that White House press secretary Sean Spicer stole a mini-fridge from the White House less than a month into his job.

Origin

On July 21st, 2017, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled "Sean Spicer Faced Myriad Obstacles During Dramatic White House Rise and Fall." The story, which outlined some of the issues Spicer faced as the White House press secretary, opened with an anecdote about how Spicer stole a mini-fridge from work during his first month.[1]

Less than a month into his new job, White House press secretary Sean Spicer needed to keep his food and drink cold. He wanted a mini-fridge.

He dispatched a top aide to a nearby executive office building where junior research employees are crammed into a room, surviving on Lean Cuisine frozen lunches. Mr. Spicer wants your icebox, the aide said, according to people familiar with the incident. They refused to give it up.

So Mr. Spicer waited until sundown--after his young staffers had left--to take matters into his own hands. He was spotted by a fellow White House official lugging the icebox down the White House driveway after 8 p.m.
