Trump Threatens To Cancel Press Briefings 'For The Sake Of Accuracy'

Trump Threatens To Cancel Press Briefings 'For The Sake Of Accuracy'

One handy arts and crafts wiz, Lisa Kadonaga, on Facebook is helping to bring the Spicer imagery into the real world, creating cut-out lawn ornaments of the press secretary for fans to hide among their bushes.

Donald Trump's lackeys have been very busy ever since the President shockingly fired (now former) Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. The lawn ornaments were so successful and went viral so quickly that DropBox had a hard time processing all the download requests.

"Well, that I can't talk about", Trump told Fox News's Jeanine Pirro in the clip released Friday.

Wednesday: "People in the Justice Department made a very strong recommendation, the president followed it and he made a quick and decisive action to fire James Comey".

Incidentally, Sanders will run Wednesday's White House press briefing, not Spicer. "Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself, we won't have them".

But many felt loyalty to Comey and appreciated his independence to both sides of the political aisle, especially with critical comments Trump made about the intelligence community during the campaign and early in his presidency, as well as the former director's efforts to streamline administrative processes.

But even when he came out, Mr Spicer delivered a cringe-worthy performance, failing to offer a clear timetable or rationale for Mr Trump's abrupt decision to can Mr Comey. And thus it was that Spicer eventually found himself standing "between two tall hedges", according to the Post, facing a small but persistent group of journalists, giving them vague and not at all satisfactory answers to the onslaught of questions.

Mr Spicer reportedly avoided the press huddle awaiting him by spending "several minutes hidden in the bushes". Trump said Comey wanted to have the dinner because he wanted to stay on in the job.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" he said.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein cited Comey's mishandling of the Clinton email investigation as grounds for his dismissal. But many interpreted it as a move to limit media access. David Cohen, the former deputy director of the CIA, is among those alarmed by the decision to allow a Tass news agency photographer into the Oval Office, which some argued could present a security risk. He is also served "Thousand Island dressing" instead of the "creamy vinaigrette for his guests".
