The best show on daytime TV was off the air once again Monday, as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer conducted yet another off-camera briefing to kick off the work week.

In his remarks Monday, Spicer said that President Donald Trump may soon address a question which has been lingering whether or not there are tapes of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.

“It’s possible we will have an answer to that at the end of the week,” Spicer said, via CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Other tidbits from the off-camera gaggle include Acosta reporting that Spicer still won’t say whether Trump believes in climate change.
