People have found a whole new way to troll Sean Spicer


Since taking up the role of White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer has been mercilessly mocked.

Melissa McCarthy brilliantly made fun of him on Saturday Night Live, people have been laughing at his strange tweets, and his relaxed relationship with the truth has been furiously memed.

But now people have found a new way to troll him – through his Venmo account.

What is Venmo?

Venmo is a mobile payment service, a bit like Paypal. It allows users to send and request money to and from each other. It’s particularly useful for things like splitting the bill in a restaurant or a taxi fare, especially when you don’t have any cash on you.

Part of the fun of it is that with every transaction, you leave a little public message, that appears like a social media feed.

Eagle-eyed users discovered that Spicer’s Venmo profile was public, and started bombarding him with requests.

Podcast Who? Weekly managed to screengrab some of the best before the account was made private.

There were payments for gum (a reference to the fact he supposedly swallows it whole), and Dippin Dots ice cream (because of some old tweets from 2010), as well as messages like these:

Donation to get ur hairline back smh

Change that picture of yourself, dude,. You’re like 90 per cent forehead

His last transaction appears to be paying his brother Ryan for some M&Ms back in July.

Even though the account is no longer public, people are still sending him requests.
