Desperate Trump Considers Dumping Spicer For Fox News Host

Desperate to look better in the public eye after the media frenzy surrounding the firing of James Comey, President Trump is looking for help from Fox News, according to a report from the Associated Press.

According to this report, an anonymous White House official says Trump is “Mulling expanding the communications team and has eyed hiring producers from Fox News.” We’ve seen how angry Trump became from the fallout of his Comey firing, and according to the both the New York Times and the Associated Press, Trump is blaming the disaster on his communications team. The report states that according to personal relations of the president, he “increasingly sees himself as the White House’s only effective spokesperson.”

The White House is scrambling to make excuses and sources told the AP that the President “does not believe his team gave contradictory stories about his decision to fire Comey, despite the fact that the White House’s explanation changed dramatically over a 48-hour period.”

Two White House sources spoke out over Trump’s “overly harsh criticism” of press secretary Sean Spicer, and others revealed that Trump has been discussing replacing Spicer because of his dissatisfaction with Spicer. According to some to Trump allies, he may even be considering Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

The longtime Trump ally Sean Hannity from Fox News has said in response to the Comey fallout that Trump should stop having White House press briefings altogether.

“If the propaganda destroy-Trump media –if they’re gonna smear and slander him and his administration and his family and lie about facts and what he’s done, why bother,” said Hannity. “Why waste the energy trying to appease people who obviously hate his guts and want to destroy him.”

We’ll see how far Trump goes to destroy the media’s role in governmental checks and balances to save face in light of his latest scandal.
