‘I’ve gotten some long @cvspharmacy receipts but I’m 5’6” (I know, you thought I was taller) and this one is almost as tall as I am,’ Spicer wrote on his Instagram page.

Spicer was known for his White House press briefings during which he had difficulty supporting statements that were demonstrably false.
Most notably, Spicer claimed that the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration was the largest ever – even though aerial photographs show that the attendance was significantly larger at both inaugurations for Barack Obama.
The press briefings became fodder for comedians. Spicer was hilariously mocked on Saturday Night Live by Melissa McCarthy.
Since leaving the White House in July 2017, Spicer has made numerous media appearances.
He also wrote a book about the time he spent at the White House.
