Sean Spicer under fire during crucial week for Trump

Donald Trump Sarah Huckabee Sanders
A spokeswoman for President Donald Trump is suggesting that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo justifying FBI Director James Comey's firing, be selected to take over the Russian Federation investigation.
Trump is the first president since Richard Nixon to fire a law enforcement official overseeing an investigation with ties to the White House.
Clearly, this was going to be a hard night for White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is expected to give a press briefing at the White House on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., a day after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. One handy arts and crafts wiz, Lisa Kadonaga, on Facebook is helping to bring the Spicer imagery into the real world, creating cut-out lawn ornaments of the press secretary for fans to hide among their bushes. "Spicer huddled with his staff among bushes near television sets on the White House grounds, not 'in the bushes, ' as the story originally stated".
Comey's firing came on the heels of an announcement that he overestimated the number of emails that were forwarded by Clinton aide Huma Abedin to the computer of her husband, disgraced former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner after reopening the inquiry into Clinton's email scandal.
"He's doing a good job, but he gets beat up", Trump said.
Like many administrations, the relationship between Trump and the press has been tense. The American press had a lot of questions.
Best to not say anything to the president that you're not comfortable seeing attached to your name in print.
For about ten minutes, he explained that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions recommended firing Comey so that's why Trump did it.
On Friday morning, the President had tweeted, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"
The latest tweets are not the first time the administration has threatened to limit media access. The president, a devoted viewer of coverage about himself, has given several interviews, most recently to NBC News' Lester Holt on Thursday, although he has favored Fox News' friendlier venue.
