Spicer on the Way Out, Sanders In?

Trump's version of the events directly contradicted Spicer's version of the events.

But it also seems to have caught the White House's own staff off-guard, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer huddling with staff behind a tall hedge on White House grounds to avoid reporters and work out a communications strategy, according to the Washington Post. "He's trying to blend in with his surroundings".

"Move, move", McCarthy soon rushed into the briefing, pushing Bryant from the podium. Trump might be canceling the Spicer show.

Axios reported that associated said the implicit message in a shake-up would be that he can handle the Oval Office better than his aides. President Trump is said to have been pleased with how it went.

Over a dozen reporters proceeded to pepper Spicer with questions about the Comey firing, with the most frequently asked question having to do with why Trump had fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "Then that would have been the big story as opposed to the inauguration", Trump said.

McCabe earlier would not confirm President Trump's assertions that Comey had told Trump multiple times that he was not under investigation. "I said, 'If it's possible, will you let me know, am I under investigation?' He said, 'You are not under investigation'".

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.

Could this really be the end for Spicey?!

"Yeah, well, he's been there from the beginning", Trump replied. Later, Trump again shifted his rhetoric, saying that he had already made a decision to fire Comey before he got Rosenstein's memo.

An ally of Spicer's told The Wall Street Journal he knows "this hasn't been a good week for him", referencing the press secretary's off-camera interview near some bushes on the White House North Lawn after news broke about Comey's firing. "You have a system that's working".

That made a great point that Spicer, who still bears responsibility for being complicit, is repeating and defending lies that originate with Trump. Pirro asked what Trump could do about that.

'I actually feel sorry for him. "So I don't - I have not asked the President since the last time we spoke about this".
