Two Former Press Secretaries Have Some Advice For Sean Spicer

Trump calls out Obama for calling healthcare bill 'mean'

He began openly complaining about the White House's handling of the media in early February after President Trump only took two questions, both from conservative media outlets, during his joint presser with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

This administration quickly became known for having the most combative press conferences in history.

Ultimately, however, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared in Spicer's stead.

Acosta has been complaining about the White House's increased use of off-camera briefings, and instead of waiting to be called on like other reporters Monday, he made a decision to shout out his questions.

A fire sparked by a traffic collision in California's Placerita Canyon is the latest blaze to hit the West amid a deadly heatwave. Wildfires continue to tear through parts of the western USA , and the region's dry conditions are literally fanning the flames.

It's time for the Trump administration to stop "hiding behind the bully pulpit" and meet the press - on camera - according to a major good government group.

It's been a week now since Spicer gave an on-camera briefing.

Needless to say, real reporters haven't been pleased about the new restrictions - and some have even plotted resistance.

White House loves this showdown over media coverage in the White House with indignant reporters. And many are simply exhausted of being treated like an enemy. Monday's White House press briefing was held off-camera, continuing a recent trend that doesn't show signs of stopping.

"First, we recommend that President-elect Trump keep the press briefing, but no longer make it a live televised event", they said.

"O'Keefe's video features a CNN health and medical producer apparently complaining about the cable channel's coverage of the Russian Federation investigation and saying it's being done for ratings", writes the Washington Post. Spicer plans to move out of the press secretary role and focus on overall communications strategies, and he's reportedly speaking to potential candidates for the podium. Why did you turn them off?

Acosta finished off his series of tweets by saying video coverage of the briefing was, "outlawed".

McMaster said Putin would be among the world leaders meeting the U.S. president during the summit, taking place on July 7 and 8. The White House confirmed that the two leaders would huddle on the sidelines of the G20 summit in the northern German city.

"Maybe we should turn the cameras on", he responded.
