Sarah Sanders insults journalists who dare ask about Trump's irrational tweets

According to CNN, Trump's initial tweet "set off a thunderclap of concern in Washington", including among "Republican lawmakers and top intelligence officials" who called the White House "perplexed that Trump had appeared to contradict more than a week of public statements from the administration in support of the reauthorization, which allows the government to conduct warrantless spying on United States soil".

Sanders' assertion came despite the President's two early morning missives sending Washington into 101 minutes of chaos, with lawmakers scrambling to confirm Trump's position on the legislation and even prompting a call to the President on the matter from House Speaker Paul Ryan. "We don't see any contradiction or confusion in that".

According to a source cited by CBS News, the White House is facing an exodus of staff drawn to higher pay in the private sector amid plunging morale and exhaustion.

CNN reported that "no one" was happy with the originally proposed ban, some people wondering how they would be able to stay in contact with their families while working 12-plus-hour workdays.

The FISA reauthorization vote passed the House Thursday afternoon - absent the privacy protecting amendment Trump appeared to endorse.

After yet another round of tweets by Donald Trump, #Sarah Huckabee Sanders was forced to explain his statements, as well as his current physical health.

Acosta said he does not want to "dance around" Trump's "problem" in the area of race relations, and he expressed pain at saying the word Trump used.

Intense scrutiny by the press combined with the investigations into alleged collusion with Russian interests and Trump's unique style of management means that more staff could be on the way out very soon, say sources.

White House staffers have been warned not to bring their personal cell phones, laptops or smart watches into the West Wing, as chief of staff John Kelly has issued a ban on the devices over fears of information leaks.
