The Fox story doesn't even have a reporter's byline on it, so no one wanted to take credit for it.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself.
In a post on his Twitter account Wednesday morning, Trump said, "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this".
President Trump has reportedly been talking with former campaign advisers, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, about taking on formal roles, as well as the creation of the crisis-communications war room. "I didn't come here with a list of things", he said.
During the hours that Trump's garbled tweet remained up, social media exploded with jokes and memes about the new word.
On this topic, too, Spicer had nothing to offer.
Now Spicer is suggesting the report might be inaccurate? What influenced his decision-making? "I think he's very pleased with the work of his staff", the press secretary said.
Efforts to follow up were rebuffed. "If you are not familiar with a person I name please let me know".More news: Justice Department Turns to High Court to Reinstate Travel Ban

Whatever his motivation, Trump is allowing the Russian Federation scandal to become not an extended nightmare but a permanent one.
During the briefing, Spicer is asked that since that former FBI director James Comey is prepared to testify that President Trump pressured him to drop the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, "Did the president engage in obstruction of justice in repeated meetings with James Comey?".
Trump has privately pinned some of the blame for his administration's rough start on the White House's communications strategy.
Well, does Trump have any views on the Philippines, where President Rodrigo Duterte recently declared martial law in part of the country? I guess you can speak for yourself. Spicer simply said, "No". At their best, press secretaries condense and repackage their bosses' top ideas.
Trump revived an old nickname for the Democrat Wednesday, tweeting that, "Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a awful candidate".
Among the laughter, a number of reporter questions go unanswered, including "What is covfefe?".
An uproar of questions soon followed, including "what is covfefe?" and "what does covfefe mean!?". He is often asked to clarify what the president meant by something, but Spicer rarely ever does so, instead saying that it's clear from the tweet what Trump meant or that, in this case, a small group understands his intentions.
"Why did it stay up for so long? Is no one watching this?"
President Donald Trump should focus more on his agenda and not allow himself to be distracted by the Russian Federation controversy, Rep. Sean Duffy said Wednesday.
