CNN hack Jim Acosta can't stop whining that the White House changed its presser rules to drastically reduce its on-camera press briefings. The three people said he has reached out to possible successors at the podium and as communications director.

"I don't think it was a game", Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said in response to a question about President Trump's tweet on potential Comey recordings approximately 40 days ago.

For the time being, White House-media relations are likely to get worse before they get better. Spicer's preference is to step away from the press briefings entirely, though other configurations have also been discussed. The president made it clear that he wants to make health care not only accessible, but affordable.

Baldasaro's presence drew particular notice given recent calls by the administration, and across Washington, for dialing back partisan rhetoric in the aftermath of last week's shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice in Virginia that left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., in critical condition. By June 21 of his first year, Obama's White House had held 108 briefings, compared to Trump's 73. The idea is to paint a picture for viewers who couldn't be in the room.

But in recent weeks, particularly as the Russian Federation scandal heated up, Spicer has played a diminished role in public.

Spicer's comments came after the White House's contentious decision to hold Monday's press briefing sans audio or video recording.

Answers from Spicer are now shorter, and in off-camera briefings, reporters are frequently prohibited from recording audio as the administration seeks to tailor its message toward policy, instead of the Russian Federation investigation, The Hill reports. The US Secret Service then said it was investigating his remarks.

President Donald Trump has spoken about Spicer's daily briefings being the most popular program in daytime TV - an ominous sign for those who know Trump likes to be the star of his show. He has been the subject of recurring skits by comic Melissa McCarthy on "Saturday Night Live" and his afternoon briefings have garnered strong ratings.

"I think we're going to get this thing done. and hopefully by the August recess really have Obamacare repealed and replaced", he said.
