Sean Spicer to miss White House briefing after Comey firing

13 Mai, 2017, 18:24 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

White House press secretary Sean Spicer's absence from a press briefing triggered wild speculation he was on the outs with President Donald Trump - despite his deputy's announcement he was at Naval Reserve training. Last night an 'embarrassment. disaster, ' reporter Jim Acosta tweeted. After the White House on Tuesday said there would be nothing more from them on the firing, Spicer, Sanders, and Kellyanne Conway rushed on to cable networks to defend Trump's decision.

Spicer indicated to the press that the decision to fire Comey came straight from the Department of Justice and was simply co-signed by Trump. Pair that with Melissa McCarthy's imminent Saturday Night Live-among more rumors that the White House might be shopping for Spicer's replacement-and you'll see it's just not his week.

"And hey, if you're concerned that when exposed to the outdoors, the image will run.no worries, that's exactly what Sean Spicer does, so it's totally authentic!" she wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. "We'll take care of this".

Asked if Mr Trump or the Justice Department initiated memos critical of Mr Comey that were given to the president Tuesday, Mr Spicer waffled. However, White House officials told CNN that Tuesday's handling of the Comey news was "an embarrassment" and "a disaster". He issued a brief, written statement to reporters confirming what he had just said in person - Comey was indeed fired, not retiring or resigning - and at the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Those words: "I say, America, stay out the bushes". I don't know. There's some - I don't know. After 10 minutes, he ended the interview and made his way back inside the White House.

"A new press secretary was born today", a white house correspondent remarked loudly walking out of the briefing room.
