Sean Spicer: Reporters Ask Snarky Questions at Briefings to 'Become YouTube Stars'

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon addressed the reports that Sean Spicer's role in the White House might be changing, with Spicer stepping away from the daily press briefings.

The CBS late-night star got a kick out of Spicer saying, "There are days where we decide that the president's voice should be the one who speaks for the administration". He has dramatically cut back on the number of press briefings he's conducted and the White House has been looking to add to the communications team as part of a broader reshuffling.

As to whether Trump shares that conclusion, Spicer said, "I have not sat down and asked him about his specific reaction to them".

When the Atlantic asked Bannon on why were Spicer's briefings downgraded and why was he mostly off camera, "Sean got fatter", he responded in a text message. "I'd be glad to touch base", Spicer said.

Mike Dubke resigned as White House communications director last month after a series of legal and political threats began to torment the administration. "The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said that without a doubt, the Russians -" the reporter said. We have been meeting with potential people who may be of service to this administration.

At one briefing, when she was questioned why Spicer was missing, she mentioned his role was probably getting upgraded.

According to Politico, Laura Ingraham, a conservative radio host, has interviewed for the job.

As the reporter reminded Spicer that all the USA intelligence agencies and the former FBI Director have all agreed Russian had intervened, Spicer cut him off, saying he had seen the reports.

Tuesday morning, amid criticism, an on-camera briefing with Spicer was announced. "But there is no massive White House shake-up coming, it's not going to happen", he insisted.

The president has long seen himself as his most effective spokesman, and has faulted his communications team for much of the early turbulence at the White House as well as the backlash from the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
