  • White House struggles to straighten its story on Comey

When's the last time Trump and Comey spoke?

Trump said in a series of tweets Friday morning it is "not possible" for his staff to "stand at podium with flawless accuracy".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted the information she and her colleagues offered was consistent. Unless I have them every two weeks and I do them myself.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House in Washington, Friday, May 12, 2017.

"I believe it's really important to hear directly from our leadership", he said on a US TV interview.

But Sanders offered a "significant contrast" in the briefing room Wednesday, said another White House official who added Spicer's reserve duty "couldn't have come at a worse time for him".

John Wall three-pointer sees Washington Wizards take Boston Celtics the distance
Wall's late-game heroics erased a struggling first half performance - the All-Star point guard had just three points at halftime. The Celtics won games one and two - the first playoff series between Washington and Boston since 1984 - by at least 10 points.


The White House says Comey's firing was motivated exclusively by concerns over his handling of the high-stakes probe into Hillary Clinton's emails.

"I have long believed that a president can fire an Federal Bureau of Investigation director for any reason, or for no reason at all".

The Resistance can't even mock the Trump Administration without being topped by their actual behavior. "I think we delivered it by hand and by email and that was - and I get it, but you asked me a question and that's the answer, " he said.

Sanders' missteps highlight the vast challenges of serving as press secretary to a president like Trump, who appears to leave his own communications staff in the dark while making claims that seem to contradict theirs. "Again, I have to get back to you on the tick-tock, " he said.

"Doing away with briefings would reduce accountability, transparency, and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the US system, no political figure is above being questioned", he said.

The press secretary would only emerge from the bush and answer questions if reporters did not film him doing so, the Post reports Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, said. But they updated that to "among", the way a paper must to avoid being called Fake News by President Donald Trump, who holds himself to no standard of accuracy, accountability, or reality. According to the report, Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to him, but Comey refused, saying "he would always be honest with him, but that he was not "reliable" in the conventional political sense". "Another president, Jeannine, will sit in the Oval Office and do practically nothing all day".
