Although Spicer coordinated several briefings for the press during Trump's trip overseas, many of them were "off camera", frustrating cable executives looking to propagate the ongoing Russian Federation narrative back at home.
Trump earlier this month fired Comey, saying he wasn't "doing a good job".
Well, does Trump have any views on the Philippines, where President Rodrigo Duterte recently declared martial law in part of the country?
All these changes-a war room, a shakeup, and outside counsel- won't solve the White House's fundamental problem: the president is his own worst enemy, new staff or no. George Will's observation that congressional staffs take on the characteristics of their bosses over time also applies to the White House, especially this one.

The 10th-seeded Williams will play either Richel Hogenkamp or 60th-ranked Elise Mertens for a place in the round of 16. The 21-year-old Russian posted his first win over a top-10 player when he beat David Goffin in Barcelona.
Dubke's hiring was meant to lighten the load on Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, who had also been handling the duties of communications director during Trump's first month in office. The way Spicer sees it, the sources close to him said, is that many reporters are obsessed with palace intrigue and minutiae, and are waging a smear campaign against the president.
"I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians", Mrs Clinton said, to laughter from the audience.
"They have talked to many people, including me", Bossie said.
As several outlets reported on Wednesday, ex-FBI director James Comey says he will testify next week that Trump pressured him to drop the FBI's investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The post, since deleted, was followed by another tweet at 6.09am that joked: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".
President Trump's incomplete, misspelled tweet read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".
White House says Trump expected to pull USA from Paris deal
Trump claimed before taking office that climate change was a "hoax" created by the Chinese to hurt the US economy. And leaders from coal-producing states have pressed Trump to uphold his vows to cancel USA commitments to Paris.
Pressed on why Trump's puzzling tweet remained online overnight and whether anyone in the administration was paying attention, Spicer said, "I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".
The tweet unleashed a torrent of reactions from Twitter users, who tried to define the term.
Dubke's job was to work behind-the-scenes managing the White House communications strategy and responses to crises, such as the firing of FBI director James B. Comey, the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 USA election, and Jared Kushner's allegedly back channel communications with the Kremlin.
And even if "covfefe" was a genuine word, Trump's tweet is not a full sentence. Just 33% say he does more to help his administration when he speaks publicly.
