Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions

When Spicer was asked if President Donald Trump still had confidence in Sessions, the press secretary simply said, "I have not had that discussion with him". Not one person. Never before have we had a direct line into how a president thinks like we do for Trump.

"Having opened this forum to all comers, the president can't exclude people from it merely because he dislikes what they're saying". "When push comes to shove, what matters is what's in Trump's head".

"The President is the most effective messenger on his agenda", Spicer said.

No one would question whether the media should report that. Are the president's tweets important?

Trump's tweets are like a direct link to what he's thinking.

Or, at least, that is what the current White House classification of those digital missives are, for now. It's just a president and his iPhone, speaking for the entire White House.

Let's follow that to its logical conclusion.

FOLKENFLIK: Trump has tweeted rhetorical fire against the mayor of London after the latest terror attack there.

The White House has accused Democrats of being "OBSTRUCTIONISTS!"

Still, tensions linger. On Monday, Trump derided the revised travel ban and criticized his own Justice Department's handling of the controversial case. This trollish appreciation misses the main effect, that Trump imperils his own agenda, much of which we agree with, when he tweets from the hip.

Forget the well put together, politically correct and sensitive speeches put together by his aides and the entire White House press team. "I see this more as a client complaining about his lawyer".

Then there's the argument that Trump's silence suggests he has now finally been made aware of the political - and legal - peril he is in, and that by tweeting he makes things worse, not better. The husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway stressed that he still strongly supports Trump. Trump repeated the sentiment twice Monday.

White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that she was not aware of the president's tweets being vetted by lawyers before being blasted out to the world. While they want to push policy reforms, like they did over the weekend, they nearly always find themselves getting distracted by 140-character messages from the President himself. Requests for comment from the White House weren't immediately returned.

Ryan. Republicans in Congress. Conway.

Mike Dubke resigned as communications director last month and served his final day in the White House on Friday. The courts. The media. Despite bipartisan complaints about his continued 140-character habit, Trump has persisted in making his views known on social media. "It's not us that are tweeting these things".
