Where are your president’s handlers when he needs them? Does he even have handlers? Is there anyone in the White House that is in charge of making sure he doesn’t say stupid stuff to the media he is so critical of? Apparently not, because this latest thing is a doozy.

On Friday, your president threw a temper tantrum and threatened to end all White House press briefings for good because his staff has a hard time keeping their stories straight.

Trump made his comments after the reasons he gave for firing FBI Director James Comey during an NBC interview on Thursday were directly contradicted by statements made by others in the White House including Vice President Mike Pence, meaning the various explanations were at best misleading, and at worst, flat out lies.

Donald Trump Was Planning to Visit FBI Headquarters, But the FBI Was Like ‘Nah, Stay Home’

This is hilarious.

Administration officials said that idea was dropped later Thursday after the FBI told the White House “the optics would not be good,” according to NBC. Apparently, no one at the FBI was ready to make fake smiles and cheers for a photo opp with the man who had just “unceremoniously sacked a very popular director.”
