Spicer was promoting his new book, “The Briefing: Politics, The Press and the President,” which was released on Tuesday.

Trump told his followers in a tweet last month to buy the book.
"A friend of mine and a man who has truly seen politics and life as few others ever will, Sean Spicer, has written a great new book, 'The Briefing: Politics, the Press and the President.' It is a story told with both heart and knowledge. Really good, go get it!" Trump wrote.
