Sean Spicer: Reporters Ask Snarky Questions at Briefings to 'Become YouTube Stars'

In response to Steve Bannon saying the reason White House press briefings were off camera is because "Sean got fatter", Colbert had a joke of his own.

Despite weeks of reports that heads would roll at the White House and that an angry President Trump was fed up with his team, there will be no major staff shake-up in the West Wing, a top Trump adviser said Wednesday. I think the briefing is one aspect of what we do.

"I have not sat down and talked to him about that specifically", Spicer said, again repeating the same explanation when pressed.

"It feels like we're slowly but surely being dragged into what is a new normal in this country where the president of the United States is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions".

"I'm not hinting. I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", Trump said at the time.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified earlier this month that Trump never asked him about Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 election. We've been meeting with potential people that may be of service to this administration.

Lewandowski said the White House is looking to give Spicer more help, but said insinuations it is part of a larger shake-up were overblown. "We are going to work with you".

It has been a spectacular day. "I made the podium for the first time so I will drink out of anybody's shoes". I was flat out and when you are chasing other cars you lose quite a lot of grip, then you are sliding.

The Russian government has repeatedly denied charges of directing interference in the USA election, though Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier this month that "patriotic" Russians could've perpetrated the hacking independently.

Trump has repeatedly lashed out about investigations into the Russian interference, calling efforts to determine whether people in his campaign colluded with Russian officials a "witch hunt".

Mike Dubke resigned as White House communications director last month after a series of legal and political threats began to torment the administration.

"I don't know if he's seen the legislation or not, but I know that they've been working extremely hard", Spicer told reporters.

"Your whole job is speaking for the administration!"

Recently, his deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been doing more and more press briefings.
