Trump not happy with Spicer?

There is no doubt that Sean Spicer has made some rather embarrassing mistakes since he took the job of press secretary earlier this year. The Wall Street Journal reports that President Trump has become "increasingly dissatisfied" with Spicer's job performance, especially the most recent communications about the firing of FBI director James Comey.

While standing at the White House podium during press conferences, Sean Spicer hasn't failed to bring make headlines, most of them negative. His Hitler gassing claim was perhaps the most notable, although he later apologized for his words.

And for those who think Spicer's job is secure, Trump's recent tweet hints that he's not happy with his current press secretary. Although he didn't name him specifically, his tweet says it all.

"The Fake Media is working overtime today!” Trump tweeted after Comey's firing. “As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at [the] podium with perfect accuracy! Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy.”

However, the Comey situation seems to have been bungled due to some mixed messages from the President himself. The IB Times notes that even Vice President Pence cited that Hillary Clinton emails as the main reason Trump fired Comey and Trump took the advice of the deputy attorney general under consideration when he fired the FBI director.

Then Trump went against Spicer and Pence's stories, something that had heads spinning at the White House. During an interview with NBC's Lester Hold, Trump said it was soly his decision to fire Comey, calling the former FBI director a "showboat."

Spicer out, Kimberly Guilfoyle in?

The New York Times cites six White House officials who have revealed that Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle will take over Sean Spicer's job as White House press secretary. When, and if, the change will happen is unknown.

However, the report states that there may be more firings to come. President Trump is said to be "dissatisfied" with not only Sean Spicer's performance but with his Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, and Communications Director Michael Dubke.
