White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer seems to have had enough of answering questions from reporters. Spicer is reportedly in search of his own replacement for the briefings. It’s unknown whether or not he will be moving into a different position within the White House.
According to multiple sources at Politico, Spicer has been reaching out to potential candidates that could fill his job. Among the names contacted include Daily Mail editor David Martosko and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham.
Fox’s Ingraham was previously considered but Trump ultimately chose Spicer.
“We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation. As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office,” the White House told Fox News.
Ingraham refused to comment. When Politico tried to contact David Martosko, he said “I can’t hear you,” and immediately hung up the phone. The latter seems very “Trumpian.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who currently serves as the deputy press secretary, is reportedly not interested in the role.
Trump has apparently not yet approved the move.
“Until you have the president buying in, any outreach or talk, is just that,” said the source.
