White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is reportedly leaving the White House.

As you can imagine, numerous journalists who cover the White House press briefings aren't happy about being banned from recording them.

"I can't stay mad at you if you're out of my sight for a couple of minutes because I lack object permanence", said Colbert in his Trump impression.

"We have a tremendous respect for the First Amendment, our ability and your ability to do your job, to report and seek out ideas", Spicer told the White House press corps.

"As far as hacking, I think it was Russia", Trump said in January during a press conference.

CNN's Jim Acosta chided the administration and Spicer himself for that decision, and accused the White House of "stonewalling" on answers to questions.

Spicer's preference is to step away from the press briefings entirely, though other configurations have also been discussed.

And on top of that, I think McGregor will be able to claim victory after the event. "You gotta know when to go", said Mayweather. These two superstars have a huge worldwide fan base and when you put them both together the event becomes much bigger.

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

"I'm right here", he told reporters Tuesday, The Hill reported. The group will officially decide how to handle the president's request at its weekly meeting Wednesday, although people close to the caucus say a summit with the president is definitely "off the table". "Sean Spicer is doing multiple jobs, communications director, press secretary, etc".

Spicer said this is precisely why he prefers the off-camera briefings: there is less "performance art".

"I have not sat down and talked to him about that specifically", Spicer said, again repeating the same explanation when pressed.

In April the former Republican National Committee strategist apologized for making an "inappropriate and insensitive" statement comparing Adolf Hitler to Syrian President Bashar Assad by suggesting Hitler 'didn't even sink to using chemical weapons.' His comments ignored Hitler's use of gas chambers to kill Jews.

Trump has repeatedly lashed out about investigations into the Russian interference, calling efforts to determine whether people in his campaign colluded with Russian officials a "witch hunt". The clip mocks Spicer's organizational skills, ability to speak clearly and attention to detail.
