Steve Bannon Says White House Press Briefings Are Off-Camera Because Sean Spicer 'Got Fatter'

By Jaime Lutz

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon said that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had stopped making televised briefings because Spicer had gained weight. 

Yeah, this really happened.

Bannon, many assume, was making a joke. Because the real reason is that the Trump administration doesn't want the public scrutiny of Sean Spicer's performance that televised briefings bring...Maybe? 

Anyway, people are confused.
