STEPHEN BANNON: SPICER WON’T DO PRESS CONFERENCES BECAUSE “SEAN GOT FATTER”

Stephen Bannon has a unique explanation for why Press Secretary Sean Spicer is no longer doing on-camera press briefings. As he explains, it is because “Sean got fatter”.

“Neither Spicer nor deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to queries about the changes to the briefings. Asked why the briefings are now routinely held off-camera, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a text message “Sean got fatter,” and did not respond to a follow-up.”

Mr. Spicer refused to do an on-camera with sound press briefing yesterday with U.S. reporters, which led to public consternation from CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Instead of answering questions from American reporters, the Press Secretary answered questions from a Russian reporter.

This led to Mr. Acosta accusing the White House of “#pravda”.
