President Donald Trump is reportedly upset about White House press secretary Sean Spicer's performance so far, and there are already rumors that he will be replaced, Axios reported on Tuesday.

Inside the administration, there is reportedly finger pointing as to who is responsible for a situation in which much of the media said the White House blatantly lied on its first day in office.

Both New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman and The New York Times' Maggie Haberman sent out tweets about Trump's displeasure with Spicer.

 

 

In addition, Axios said Trump hasn't been impressed with how Spicer dresses, once asking an aide: "Doesn't the guy own a dark suit?"

Perhaps not coincidentally, Spicer on Monday wore a dark suit at the press briefing and looked much sharper than he did on Saturday.

In a commentary appearing in the Chicago Tribune, Washington Post reporter Callum Borchers said he is not so sure how much longer Spicer will put up with being embarrassed after Trump sent him to the podium on Saturday "to peddle a fabulous, easily disproven lie about the size of the president's Inauguration Day crowd.

"Trump basically told Spicer to stand in front of a group of journalists, whose respect he needs to do his job effectively, and discredit himself on his first full day in the White House. To top it off, Trump then complained that Spicer didn't sell the lie well enough."

Borchers said this was not the first incident of this kind and gave several examples of when it happened during the campaign.
