Stephen Colbert Repeatedly Kicks Sean Spicer While He's Down, and Likely Out

Stephen Colbert Repeatedly Kicks Sean Spicer While He's Down, and Likely Out”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer returned to the press podium Tuesday after the White House went eight days without an on-camera briefing.

"It's no secret we've had a couple vacancies, including our communications director is gone for a while", Spicer said Tuesday when asked about a potential role change, explaining that the White House has been seeking advice and meeting with people that could help the administration.

Recently, his deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been doing more and more press briefings.

"I'm not hinting. I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", Trump said at the time.

Steve Bannon had some harsh words to explain why Sean Spicer has been giving fewer TV press briefings lately.

"I get in, essentially, around 6 a.m. until fairly late at night and we have an entire press staff that's totally accessible during those hours and on the weekends to the press", he said.

Mike Dubke resigned as White House communications director last month after a series of legal and political threats began to torment the administration.

Candidates for the role of press secretary and communications director reportedly include Fox News personality Laura Ingraham and Daily Mail editor David Martosko, respectively, according to Politico. The Trump Administration is insulating itself from the media and by extension the American people by refusing to allow video and audio recordings of the White House press briefings.

"I have not sat down and talked to him about that specific thing", Spicer said. "But there is no massive White House shake-up coming, it's not going to happen", he insisted.

In April the former Republican National Committee strategist apologized for making an "inappropriate and insensitive" statement comparing Adolf Hitler to Syrian President Bashar Assad by suggesting Hitler 'didn't even sink to using chemical weapons.' His comments ignored Hitler's use of gas chambers to kill Jews. Spicer acknowledged that he's personally seen the reports, but he apparently hasn't been able to gauge where Trump stands on the issue.
