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.
LeBron James' LA home vandalized with racial slur
The Los Angeles home of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James was vandalized with a racial slur, according to TMZ . Sandoval told the AP that someone painted over the slur before officers arrived to investigate.
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".
Cyclone Mora hits Bangladesh with heavy wind and rain
Cyclone Mora has battered Bangladesh , killing at least three people and wreaking havoc in camps housing Rohingya refugees . All flights from Chittagong's Shah Amanat International Airport were cancelled from Tuesday morning to this afternoon.
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.
Amid Rumors Of Staff Shake-Up, White House Communications Director Resigns
British Prime Minister May was very angry that the info the United Kingdom gave to US about Manchester was leaked. Dubke's last day on the job has not been determined.
