Spicer on the Way Out, Sanders In?

Spicer on the Way Out, Sanders In?

Trump's confidants have reportedly been pointing out to him that his approval ratings are not seeing any improvement - as of Saturday, the president has a 56% disapproval rating and a 39% approval rating, according to Gallup. Karl obviously smelled blood in the water when deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had to answer for President Trump completely contradicting the White House's cover story regarding the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

The reports of a possible staff shake-up in the White House come amid intensifying criticism of the Trump administration over its shifting accounts this week on the president's reasoning to sack FBI Director James Comey.

Trump is "frustrated, and angry at everyone", one source told Axios, and said that the president is also upset with Cabinet officials, like commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, attorney general Jeff Sessions, and health and human services secretary Tom Price.

"Every time people write this story they're always wrong and people writing today are wrong", a White House official said of Spicer's job security.

Yet lest she be mistaken exclusively as the sugar to balance the daily dose of Spicer, Sanders demonstrated during the 30-minute daily briefing a willingness to mix it up with reporters and engage in partisan attacks on Democrats, slipping in a few snarky asides along the way.

Pressed by Pirro about launching an independent commission to investigate the issue, Trump suggested the current investigations taking place in Congress will suffice.

Trump suggests he might drop daily press briefings
Excerpts of the interview, taped Friday, were released just hours after a morning Twitter rant in which the erratic executive said he might cancel the White House daily press briefing and indicated the information his press office was providing to reporters wasn't necessarily true.

Russian government releases photos of Oval Office meeting
Earlier at the State Department, Lavrov made a joke when a reporter asked if Comey's firing would "cast a shadow on your talks". The White House, however, did not elaborate further on Trump's meeting with Lavrov.

"I'm sympathetic to Sean's plight when he says there are days when he can't into the Oval Office before the he does the briefing", Earnest, who served under former President Barack Obama, told Katy Tur on MSNBC.

"I just found it one of the most astonishing weeks I've ever covered in this town", he added.

Sanders, who made her first appearance at the briefing room lectern last week, has on several occasions conducted the in-flight "gaggle" with a small group of traveling media aboard Air Force One. "The repeated lesson the White House has learned is there is no quiet day or week". Does it appear the White House is trying to cover something up if there is not a prosecutor who can do the job without fear of being fired?

It was not at all a good look for the press secretary.

"Just turn the lights off", he said, according to the Washington Post's account of his impromptu briefing, asking that he not be filmed.
