Nobody wants to replace Sean Spicer

Nobody wants to replace Sean Spicer

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declined to definitively answer when asked if President Donald Trump believes Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 USA presidential election.

It hasn't yet been announced that Spicer has officially been promoted from press secretary to communications chief, but reports indicate the White House is actively re-evaluating Spicer's current role and even looking for communications department replacements.

Spicer smiled during a question about the validity of the reports, saying, "I'm right here", as if to say clearly no immediate change had been made.

The secretary went on to explain "it's no secret" the White House has "had a couple of vacancies for a while".

He insisted that Senate Republicans were not behaving hypocritically by keeping their Democratic colleagues out of the process of drafting a health care reform bill, although they complained about their own input during the negotiations for Obamacare.

We can presume that Clinton's tweets won't do much to help Spicer, who is either stepping into a higher role at the White House or on thin ice (or both), depending on who you're listening to.

"I was honored to briefly discuss the possibility of joining President Trump's administration as press secretary or in another senior role", Martosko said in a statement Tuesday.




Spicer added that when they have an announcement regarding personnel, the administration will let the press know.

Discussions about overhauling the White House communications office have been ongoing for several weeks, according to administration officials.

The White House has generally only used that excuse on days that the president has held a press conference or delivered a major speech.

President Trump is satisfied with his team and there will be no shake-up coming to the White House, former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Wednesday. "Saturday Night Live" has poked fun at him mercilessly.

Steve Bannon reportedly told a journalist that the reason there are no cameras at Spicer's press briefings is because Spicer "got fatter".

However, the White House has apparently chose to upload its own videos of the press briefings to its official YouTube channel, the last of which was uploaded on June 12.
