Camerota: Was Spicer Saying that We Can Never Talk About Anything They Perceive as Negative?
CAMEROTA: "Abby, let's end on that note. Sean spicer talked about how demoralizing it was for the media to point out that Mr. Trump's crowd sizes were less than Mr. Obama's. You know, look, Chris and I were on the air for something like 8 1/2 hours. The vast majority of it was talking about how excited the crowds were, the mood, the electricity. I think that once in this space of those 8 1/2 hours in the space of 24 hours, we talked about the crowd size. So are they saying that we can never talk about anything that they perceive as negative without, you know, them chastising the media?"
HUNTSMAN: "It's really hard to know, but Sean was really reflecting his boss in that moment. He was speaking for his boss and reflecting his views of the coverage over the weekend, and, you know, some of my colleagues wrote a really fascinating report describing the series of events on Saturday that kind of led to this path, including some tweets from the national -- retweets from the national park service. He was annoyed and angered by the coverage of the March the following day, and it isn't just that it's negativity. They also want an acknowledgment of trump's accomplishments. Which is something every politician is, but the reality is it's hard and it's not all going to be positive."
