Vigdor questions Spicer.

One of the innovations the Trump communications team has brought to the White House is the use of Skype to allow reporters from around the country to take part in the daily press briefing.

Sean Spicer has described it as a way to open the White House up to more coverage. National reporters see it as a cynical way to avoid tough questions through high tech filibuster.

Regardless, Neil Vigdor of Hearst Connecticut Media took advantage of the opportunity this week to ask Spicer about Governor Malloy’s view on immigration enforcement.

A reporter from Montana asked Spicer whether the Trump administration planned to build a border wall with Canada and while Spicer seemed to chuckle it off, he did not rule it out.
