Spicer highlighted his presence on the fifth floor of Trump Tower, but party employees were given strict instructions not to go there.
When former White House press secretary Sean Spicer bragged in an election-night retrospective this week about his central role at Trump Tower that night, some of his former colleagues did something very Spicer-like: they flipped out.
In the oral history published Tuesday by GQ Magazine, Spicer recalled of the historic day: “A group of us gathered on the fifth floor of Trump Tower in what could be described as basically an oversized utility room.”
Spicer, who during the campaign served as communications director for the Republican National Committee, described to the glossy magazine how he camped out on the fifth floor while political director Bill Stepien was “going through key counties, Florida in particular — Broward, Miami Dade, southern Florida. What's in, what's not. I would say that at least through 7:30, 8 o'clock, it was a very cautiously optimistic view.”
