White House struggles to straighten its story on Comey

In a period of 60 minutes this morning, President Donald Trump tweeted six times to complain about the investigations into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian officials, to threaten to end the daily White House press briefings, and to warn fired FBI Director James Comey about leaking details of their conservations.

During an interview with radio host Glenn Beck, O'Reilly criticized the White House's handling of President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, saying mistakes come when the Trump administration is "undisciplined".

The president tweeted, "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!"

President Trump suggested Friday he was prepared to cancel the White House's daily press briefings unless he did them himself, and only if they occurred "every two weeks".

Fox News' Jeanine Pirro asked Trump in an interview the network partially aired Friday afternoon, referring to Spicer.

I want to say this is a new low for Spicer, but...he's just had so many blunders that I don't know if that's even true. He said Spicer is a nice man "but he gets beat up".

He then ordered for the lights to be turned off and stood in darkness between two tall hedges as he answered questions from reporters.

But not White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer - he LITERALLY hid in the bushes.

Another source close to Spicer added, "Keep in mind Sean is following military orders, not military suggestions".

In a press conference after the Oval Office meeting, the Russian Foreign Minister said he and Trump "discussed specific issues and we didn't raise those absurd issues" about election tampering. Since taking over as press secretary, he has made a number of gaffes at the podium that ended up shining the media spotlight on him, instead of on Trump and his policies.

He raised the prospect that White House stonewalling on a special prosecutor could trigger a drastic congressional response.

"That exercise, conducted in full view of our republic's citizens, is clearly in line with the spirit of the First Amendment", Mason said. "I think we delivered it by hand and by email and that was - and I get it, but you asked me a question and that's the answer", he said.

Already beset by critics who say he has lost his credibility, Spicer may now be losing his authority. "Another president, I won't use names, but another president doesn't doing what I'm doing".

"Yeah, well, he's been there from the beginning", Trump said. "They really don't. I'm not saying that in a bragging way".
