White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is in hot water with reporters after reportedly refusing to allow his off-camera press gaggle to be recorded on Monday.
“The White House press secretary is getting to a point… where he is just kind of useless,” CNN’s Jim Acosta said on air. “If he can’t come out and answer the questions and they’re not going to do this on camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?”
Acosta said the White House is “stonewalling” and called the situation “bizarre.” Spicer has become a household name for his combative press briefings, but they have become less frequent recently.
