Do we have a winner? Or is this failing up? Fox Business... but CNN is still using a ? in the BREAKING NEWS: SEAN SPICER OUT AS WH PRESS SECRETARY? chyron :lol:
Sean Spicer takes on new WH role, may no longer give press briefings
Published June 19, 2017 News FOXBusiness

FBN's Liz Claman on reports that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will get a new role within the Trump administration. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will take on a new, elevated role in the Trump administration, White House officials said Monday. “We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation. As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office,” the White House said in a statement.

Spicer will no longer handle day-to-day press duties, including daily media briefings, and will instead oversee communications for the entire administration. In that position, which is considered a promotion for Spicer, he would manage the press office, as well as other branches of the communications department.

Though no official title has been decided on, Spicer’s role would be similar to a deputy chief of staff. The changes will begin to roll out in the near future, the White House indicated. The administration has yet to name a replacement to take over his duties as press secretary, though they have indicated they are very fond of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, according to Fox News' John Roberts.

The new organizational structure will be a dramatic shift from the traditional hierarchy of other presidential administrations, Roberts noted, indicating the Trump administration is seeking new methods to coordinate their message and keep up with a faster flow of information.

Trump is solely about his public reception. It has not been good lately. Naturally, he fixes communications rather than policies.

That's what bothers me about her too, also. She is either a true believer or is extremely comfortable telling lies. And she gets angry when her lies are questioned/not believed by the press.

And that Sean was left with nothing positive to communicate, and blames that on him.

I'm sure most of Bannon's paunch is due to his grotesquely swollen liver.

No. I made him an offer years ago, but during due diligence I found it had a lien on it that he couldn't explain. :mrgreen:

President Donald Trump is reportedly blaming one of his most loyal Washington hands for not containing the Russia probe before it got messy.

According to a Friday report from Politico — which cited anonymous White House advisers, both formal and informal — White House counsel Donald McGahn is the latest person on the receiving end of Trump’s outbursts toward staff.

Add McGahn to the poll?

I think trump is warming up to fire Mueller, unless his incompetent handlers can manage to stop him. That doesn't really fall within the category of "under the bus," though.

Is it time for Reince to be shown the door?
The makeup of Trump’s inner circle is the subject of internal debate, as ever. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser; Jared Kushner, her husband and another senior adviser; and first lady Melania Trump have been privately pressing the president to shake up his team — most specifically by replacing Reince Priebus as the White House chief of staff, according to two senior White House officials and one ally close to the White House.
