Colbert points out. As it turns out, there may be another reason for the camera ban, according to Steve Bannon - Bannon claimed in a text message simply that "Sean got fatter".
He joked that when asked about why no recording was allowed, there was a response of silence from Spicer because "Nothing was recorded in there, we don't know" what was said.
Spicer is far too easy to make fun of, so in a way, I'm going to miss having him around. He added that the White House press team is very available and that the briefing is just one avenue to be available to the press.
"Call me old fashioned but I think the White House of the United States of America should have the backbone to answer questions on camera", tweeted CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.
When a reporter followed up by noting that 16 intelligence agencies believe that the Russians did interfere, and former FBI Director James Comey said as much in his congressional testimony, Spicer reiterated that he couldn't answer because he hadn't spoken with Trump.

Spicer responded to the rumors of changes to the communications team at a Tuesday press conference, his first on-camera briefing in eight days.
Spicer said he had "seen the reports" from the intelligence community concluding that the Russian government ordered an influence campaign to interfere with the US election, but that he has not asked Trump about his views.
Lewandowski said the White House is looking to give Spicer more help, but said insinuations it is part of a larger shake-up were overblown. "We've been meeting with potential people". I don't think that should come as a surprise. "So I'd be glad to touch base and get back to you".
Trump has repeatedly lashed out about investigations into the Russian interference, calling efforts to determine whether people in his campaign colluded with Russian officials a "witch hunt". "He's being promoted to White House communications director, which means he's leading a search for his own replacement".
The final report followed the USA intelligence community's initial statement in October 2016 that claimed senior Russian officials directed the hacking of Democratic Party organizations during the 2016 presidential campaign. Surely the president has a view on them?
