White House discussing moving Spicer to senior communications role

Sean Spicer likely out as press secretary, Laura Ingraham reportedly among possible replacements

White House press secretary Sean Spicer is set to move into a new role in the Trump administration, according to multiple reports published Monday.

"I don't think anything is imminent", the official said.

"I don't understand why we covered that gaggle today, quite honestly", he added.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Monday didn't mince any words on how he feels about the Trump administration's total unwillingness to divulge any information or answer any questions.

In the Fox News report, Spicer is said to be taking on an elevated role in the administration where he would oversee communications for the entire administration.

Acosta accused the White House of not wanting the American people to see and hear their answers to questions, "When we're asking important questions about where are the tapes, does the president have recordings of his conversations here at the White House?" Reporters were simply told "TBD" on Sunday night.

"You know, if he can't come out and answer the questions and they're just not doing to do this on camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?"

For a bit of context, there is a dying journalistic tradition called the "pen and pad briefing", which many old-school reporters prefer for a variety of reasons. Neither Ingraham, Martosko, nor Spicer immediately responded to The Daily Caller's requests for comment.

In a rare moment of anger Acosta turned from the camera, saying, "That's the White House, the White House", stressing the global significance of the building that is supposed to represent Americans and American democracy. Now it appears no recordings of the White House's uselessness will be allowed at all. "That is the only conclusion one could draw".

"I don't know what world we're living in right now, Brooke". "If they can't give us answers to the questions on camera or where we can record the audio, they're basically pointless".
