On May 12, three days after he fired Comey, Trump said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director better hope that there are no "tapes" of their conversations before Comey starts leaking to the press. "I don't know why everybody is going along with this", Acosta said. "If he can't come out and answer the questions and they're not going to do this on camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?" "And it just feels like we are slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United Stats is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions". Spicer and his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have been decreasing the number of press gaggles they hold and how long they stay at them, according to The Washington Post.

In subsequent months, he would see the statements he made at the White House podium contradicted by the President - raising questions about the administration's credibility and Spicer's ability to speak for Trump with confidence. "We're standing at the White House and they bring us into the briefing room here at the White House and they won't answer these questions on camera or let us record the audio".
