More seriously, Spicer has presided over the decline of the regulator White House press briefings from serious and closely watched daily events that aired across cable television to ones in which specific news organisations and, indeed, TV cameras are banned.

Where people with alternate political beliefs can, you know, question the government.

"A better model would focus on facts and substance", they said.

"We've largely been just blackballed during these briefings", Acosta said.

Acosta continued to ask why the cameras weren't turned on, saying that they were already in the room.

"I think the on-camera briefings could be cut back". Melissa McCarthy has also mocked Spicer's intensity in multiple "SNL" skits, further popularizing the briefings.

On Monday, Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters following a joint appearance in the Rose Garden with the prime minister of India.

Then White House colleague Steve Bannon piled on, when asked by The Atlantic why Spicer was now holding the press briefings off-camera.

The tweets on Wednesday from the former press secretaries follow after backlash from reporters for a decision by the White House to conduct some press briefings off-camera. "Can you at least give us an explanation as to why the cameras are off?" "But given all the other problems President Donald Trump has presented to the media, it's natural that we would react to every single thing that adds to it". "Can we have the cameras on?"
