I'm not firing Sean Spicer. That guy gets great ratings. Everyone tunes in.
But according to a recent Washington Post report, his job is pretty secure.
Many speculated Spicer would be let go after he now-infamously said Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons and called concentration camps "Holocaust centers."
WATCH | Here's a list of Spicer's most high-profile blunders.
The same Post report highlighted Trump's unique attention to television. Lawmakers now regard being on TV as nearly as important as a meeting in the Oval Office, and Trump has reportedly paused conversations with political allies to watch Spicer's more intense press briefings.
Most TVs in the West Wing show four channels constantly: CNN, Fox News, Fox Business and MSNBC. Trump also enjoys One America News and, on occasions, Al Jazeera.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) has taken advantage of Trump's viewing habits, making appeals on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and getting a response from Trump a day later.
