Trump didn't let Sean Spicer meet the pope even though he really wanted to

Trump didn't let Sean Spicer meet the pope even though he really wanted toThe Trumps and some White House officials met with Pope Francis on Wednesday, but one figure was notably missing: Sean Spicer. And apparently, he's pretty upset about it. A source close to the White House told CNN that Spicer not being brought along to the meeting was "a slight," and that to meet Papa Francesco was "all he wanted."

McMaster, in addition to Jared and Ivanka.  Jared and I were honored to join the President @realDonaldTrump and First Lady @FLOTUS in meeting His Holiness Pope Francis #POTUSAbroad pic.twitter.com/oaugVOJGPI — Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) May 24, 2017 In a shocking turn of events, people really felt for Spicey!
