In the four months that Donald Trump has been the President of the United States, he's dealt with a constant cloud of controversy. While Trump is often the one dominating the headlines, many of his advisers and staff members have had their own issues and time in the spotlight.

Melania on Spicer

After Donald Trump shocked the world with his surprising win over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last November, it wasn't long before the focus shifted onto who he would surround himself with in the White House.

As the former host of "The Apprentice" began announcing his cabinet nominations and staff members, Democrats and other critics were quick to push back. Despite this, when Sean Spicer was given the role of White House Press Secretary, the reaction was relatively tame, with those who oppose the new president worried about more important selections. While Spicer didn't raise any red flags at first, he's caused Trump trouble ever since. The biggest blunder took place last month when Spicer attempted to compare Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler, and mistakenly claimed that the Nazis never used chemical weapons during the Holocaust.

Rumors have circulated in recent weeks suggesting that Trump could soon fire Spicer, with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle being named as a possible replacement. According to a report in Politico, and later Raw Story, on May 20, First Lady Melania Trump is now pushing for Spicer to be gone as soon as possible.

According to the report in Politico on Saturday, Melania Trump wants Sean Spicer out as White House Press Secretary by the time she and her husband, Donald Trump, return from their foreign trip next week.

"She was really concerned that Spicer was not doing a good job, that they were not proactive in defending the president," a source close to the president told Politico. "The leaks bother her," the source continued, explaining, "She believes a lot of people are more interested in serving themselves than him."

Spicer trouble

Speculation regarding the possible firing of Sean Spicer continued to heat up last week after reports noted that the press secretary hid in the bushes to avoid the press after the news broke that Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director.

The story became such a hot topic that it started to trend on Twitter, and was part of a skit on "Saturday Night Live." While it's unknown how the commander in chief will handle the situation at hand, with the pressure now coming from Melania Trump to make a move, Spicer's future in the White House doesn't look too promising.
