"The same people critiquing his use of it now critiqued it during the election and it turned out pretty well for him then", said Spicer. After one reporter asked Spicer if "people should be concerned that the president posted somewhat of an incoherent tweet last night", Spicer simply replied, "No". WIRED magazine today reports "the Knight First Amendment Institute, an offshoot of the larger Knight Foundation that focuses on protecting First Amendment rights in the digital age, argued that when Trump blocks people on Twitter, he's violating their right to free speech".
Other issues include the fact that the president has two accounts, including his @POTUS handle, and the fact that ultimately they are both hosted through a private company's servers further muddle the legal picture. Some former campaign staffers voiced their concern about the president's social media habit as well, telling Politico in February that they attempted to keep his tweeting under control by showing him positive media coverage.
All of which suggests that Sessions possibly won't be leaving after all.
As of publication, Mr. Spicer could be seen floating somewhere above Pennsylvania, flapping his arms and trying in vain to get to D.C. before his parachute took him all the way down to the ground.
The supporter, as well as those briefed on the White House's Russian Federation response efforts, insisted on anonymity in order to disclose private deliberations. "You don't realize how much this is all playing into Donald Trump's hand, this is exactly what he's after".
White House director of legislative affairs Marc Short, meanwhile, insisted the president's efforts were "often very effective" and said Trump was elected because voters were hungry for a non-conformist candidate who would change the culture in Washington. This story is developing and will be updated if and when Spicer gets back to the White House. As the briefing was wrapping up, Trump asked everyone to leave the room except for Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Trump and his surrogates have criticized the intelligence community, particularly the CIA, for claiming Russian Federation helped get Trump elected.
If from Day One Trump had hired a savvy and competent chief of stafflike James Baker III, who served my father, the Oval Office drama between Trump and Comey never would have happened. The 30-second ad, which looks like a campaign spot, blasts the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director as a "showboat".
So a new Twitter account is automatically transforming his social media outbursts into official-looking press releases from the White House.
After the testimony wrapped up, Donald Trump Jr. finished his thoughts with a moment of catharsis.
