But on Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will not conduct the White House press briefing.

According to an Associated Press report, President Donald Trump may be seeking communications help from Fox News in the wake of the media circus surrounding the president's firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

Spicer first announced Comey's firing around 5:40 any reporters who happened to be in the briefing room, before exiting with his staff into his office. Incredulous, Spicer takes his podium to New York City, eventually finding his boss at a New Jersey golf course. Trump called Comey a "showboat" and has since been the subject of heavy criticism because he earlier praised Comey's decision just weeks before the election to announce new details regarding a probe into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of outside email, an investigation that had been closed. That's the kind of harsh certainty some voters (translation: Trump detractors) want to see more often, in the press - and the sort of total confidence that other voters (Trump supporters) view as elitist or biased.

Regardless, Trump seems to be considering a sweeping shakeup of his West Wing staff in the wake of the media firestorm that followed his abrupt decision to fire Comey - the man who was overseeing an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

My only child, my best friend and my first true love isn't here with us physically but I know he's here in spirit", she said. Branch said she discovered the video through the police report , which describes the footage as "alarming" and "bullying".

"Let them do it", Trump said. The latest poll on the Comey firing, from Gallup, has approval/disapproval of the move at 39/46, yet another result that's in line with Trump's overall job approval.

"If she could ask for anything for her birthday, she would probably ask you guys to be nice to her mommy", she said with a smile. She said she'd "heard from countless members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that are grateful and thankful for the president's decision". "And hey, if you're concerned that when exposed to the outdoors, the image will worries, that's exactly what Sean Spicer does, so it's totally authentic!" The White House insists, though, they're not planning anything-as usual. Huckabee Sanders is pointing to information she received after Comey was sacked, not before.

There is speculation that goes so far as to suggest these days signal the beginning of the end for the Trump administration.
