Trump threatens to cancel briefings; Spicer back at podium


Sarah Huckabee Sanders has already been out telling scripted lies to satisfy Trump's demand for drum-banging (on Russia) and defend his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

If any such tapes exist, the problem is that, because of suspected collusion between WikiLeaks and the Kremlin, the tapes may never be heard - at least not on this side of the Atlantic.

"Here's the thing, the difference between me and another president", Trump said.

Critics saw the taunt as a threat to Comey to keep his mouth shut about what was discussed.

In light of the flap over the Comey firing, President Trump said "yes, that's true" when Pirro suggested that his administration was "moving so quickly that your communications department can not keep up with you". He then defended Mr Trump's idea to get rid of the briefings.

Spicer appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight Tuesday to address Comey's firing.


The comments also echo sentiments from associates of Trump during the transition, who reportedly considered whether the administration should hold fewer press briefings or move them out of the White House to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. By December, the speculation hit its fever pitch and political observers were sure Guilfoyle would be involved with the operation somehow, whether as press secretary or in an ancillary role.

In a freakish interview taped hours after he introduced the idea of scrapping the press briefing altogether, Trump said he was serious about the possibility to "just don't have them". When he emerged, he made the assembled press turn off their cameras and lights.

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!.Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" he wrote in a pair of posts.

"It was a quick-moving process", she said. Maybe, Trump said, he will just cancel briefings with the media altogether. Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself.

"I think it's pretty simple, I hadn't had a chance to have the conversation directly with the president", she said. "Doing away with briefings would reduce accountability, transparency, and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the USA system, no political figure is above being questioned".
