"In terms of messaging, I would give myself a C or a C plus", Trump said in an interview on Fox News Channel early in his term.

Though the three networks weren't able to broadcast images of Spicer and some mainstream-media correspondent sniping back and forth, they knew full well that a Spicer press briefing - even a monomedia version - is worth carrying live. Nicholas Burns, the former U.S. ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation under George W. Bush, calledTrump's meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders - which involved the shoving of prime minister - "the least effective of any American President since 1949".

More attorneys with deep experience in Washington investigations are expected to be added in the weeks ahead. The subpoenas were approved for Flynn and Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen and their related businesses.
A senior administration official said Kushner was keeping his head down and focusing on work after the foreign trip. Investigators said Kushner has critical information connected to the probe, but he is not suspected of committing a criminal act. The person and others discussing private conversations spoke on condition of anonymity.
Trump aides had been hoping to get through the trip before making staffing decisions.
So Spicer likely keeps his job for another day and everyone around Trump scrambles to keep theirs while Trump's 35 percenters keep marveling at how Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious their Dear Leader is and the rest of America laughs, cringes or weeps.
