Spicer on accuracy during press briefings: ‘Every word is picked apart’

On May 12 during the daily White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked to comment on tweets from President Trump about accuracy during press briefings. Spicer responded that, “we do our best to give you the answer and every word is picked apart to try to figure out how to make an issue out of it as oppose to allowing us to talk to the president, get his current thinking and updates if we hadn’t had an opportunity to do that at this time.”
