Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer didn't hold back Sunday evening when responding to Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters' (Calif.) thinly veiled attempt at mocking the Republican Party and Donald Trump administration on Twitter in the wake of Reince Priebus' resignation as White House chief of Staff.
Waters, who often calls for President Donald Trump's impeachment and who regularly boycotts Trump's speeches and events, sounded off on Twitter Saturday evening, suggesting that Vice President Mike Pence is already eyeing a takeover of the White House and will receive help from Trump's recently discarded staff members.
"Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition," Waters wrote.

Although Waters didn't tweet directly at any of the men, Spicer took it upon himself to fire back with his own mockery, alluding to the notion that Trump will be a two-term president before a potential Pence presidential bid.
"When and if @mike_pence runs in 2024 I would proudly play any role he asks[.] Good to know you have already conceded that," Spicer shot back at Waters.

Spicer and Priebus are the two latest White House officials to be ousted in the last few weeks, as rumors circulate of internal chaos within the Trump administration.
Priebus, who was replaced by retired Gen. John Kelly, appeared not to hold any ill will against his former boss either, telling Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday he was still loyal to the president. Kelly, 67, was the former secretary of homeland security.
"I'm going to be on Team Trump all the time," Priebus said.
