Sean Spicer might be leaving White House podium

Donald Trump is a master of decieit CNN reporter shreds 'stonewalling' White House — and says Sean Spicer is 'just kind of useless'

WASHINGTON, June 19 The White House is considering shifting press secretary Sean Spicer away from the daily spokesman role and into a senior communications role but no such move is imminent, a senior White House official said on Monday.

Spicer would likely hand off duties for the daily briefings, but continue to manage the communications and press office, according to the network. The White House is refusing to answer those questions on camera, or in any kind of fashion where we can record the audio.

Some reporters, including The New York Times' White House correspondent, Maggie Haberman, reacted with surprise to the news that Spicer has been tasked with finding his own replacement. Spicer has served as press secretary since January when President Donald Trump was sworn into office. Comey has said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". "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".

"We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation", White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. "You know, 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?" "If they can't give us the answers to the questions on camera or where we can record the audio, they're basically pointless". Whether Spicer will stay at the White House in a different role is still unclear.

"There are days that I'll decide that the president's voice should be the one that speaks and iterate his priorities", Spicer added.
