Report: White House Considering New Role for Spicer, Bringing in New Spokesperson
20 June, 2017, 01:16
The best show on daytime television, Sean Spicer's daily press briefing, was off the air on Monday, as the White House Press Secretary opted for an off-camera gaggle.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn't take questions from Politico or The Washington Post during the briefing, an unusual decision that was also flagged by reporters.
When President Trump was inaugurated in January, Spicer was running the communications team and serving as press secretary. Comey has said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes".
"If he can't come out and answer the questions, and they're just not going to do this on camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?" "And it just feels like we are slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United Stats is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions".
Spicer began his tenure as White House press secretary by taking to the White House briefing room and criticizing reporters for the coverage of Trump's inauguration crowd size.
"Spicer should be elevated and if he's not, I would not blame him for leaving", a White House official told Politico.
Acosta went on to say that reporters asked a variety of questions on hot-button issues like the Republicans' forthcoming health care bill, Trump's opinions on climate change, whether he's been taping conversations in the White House and whether he could fire the special prosecutor looking into possible connections to Russian Federation.
