    No cameras, no audio for White House daily briefing

    The White House press briefing has seen better days. Lately, in fact, the briefing is often not seen at all.

    For four days last week, representatives for President Trump skipped the usual on-camera briefing to take questions off-camera. .

    This wasn't the first time the White House had taken this step, but this month has brought an added twist. In response to networks like CNN that decided to broadcast audio of the briefing, even without a visual to accompany, the White House barred attendees from doing that, too. Monday's briefing -- the White House termed it a "gaggle," a more informal set-up, though it took place in a format much like a briefing -- was likewise off-camera, with audio broadcasting forbidden...

    Whereas I believe the press conferences should be on camera, the White House is not required to do so.

    Further, Trump makes his own announcements often, making press conferences unnecessary.

    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

    We still have Trump's twitter meltdowns and his people lying to us on Sunday mornings, so there's that.
    Silence means security, silence means approval.

    He is supposed to do the work of the people. What a piece of work he is. I guess not work, That does not seem to be his strong suit

    CNN reporting that Sean Spicer might be moved into another White House position, leaving a vacancy for the chief spokesperson.

    Not that he's going to ask for my advice, but he should get the hell out of there and write a book.

    “Spicer should be elevated, and if he’s not, I would not blame him for leaving,” said the White House official. “The president owes him this much for all he’s done for him. Sean is indispensable, and I think the president knows that.”
    Say what?!

    Seriously? His tweets....what? His own "announcements" are not available for the rich questioning of a free press, the back and forth of press conferences. Can you imagine Trump at Question Time for the English PM? The man is an embarrassment to a world democracy.

    Of course the White House doesn't "have to." What's that got to do with good government?

    Spicer aged since he's been WH spokesperson. Looks like death warmed over.
