Multiple media outlets were blocked from a White House gaggle Friday afternoon, hours after Donald Trump again labeled the press as enemies of the American people and vowed to "do something about it."
Reporters didn't expect the usual and more formal on-camera daily briefing from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, but did expect a more spontaneous "gaggle" with the White House's main spokesperson at some point Friday afternoon.
Around noon, the White House sent updated guidance that the gaggle would be off-camera with an "expanded pool."
The White House emailed the selected reporters that they were okayed to attend.
NBC News was allowed into the off-camera briefing and decided to stay with the intention of sharing all newsgathering material with journalism colleagues. The "pool" was also in the room — meaning that, under a longstanding agreement, the material would be shared with all media colleagues regardless of who was physically present.
While representatives from NBC News, CBS, ABC, and FOX were allowed into the off-camera briefing, CNN was not. Hallie Jackson, who was there for NBC/MSNBC used her opportunity to ask, as did others, why some of her colleagues had been excluded.

Buzzfeed, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News, The Hill and Politico were among the other outlets not allowed in to cover the gaggle, with representatives from the Associated Press and Time declining to go into the gaggle because of how it was being handled.
CNN's public relations wing tweeted that the move was an "unacceptable development by the Trump White House."
"Apparently this is how they retaliate when you report facts they don't like. We'll keep reporting regardless."
White House Correspondents Association President Jeff Mason emailed members that the board "is protesting strongly against how today's gaggle is being handled by the White House."

"We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not. The board will be discussing this further with White House staff," the email read.
During the briefing in question Spicer was asked about why certain outlets were not present. He said it was because the gaggle, an info was an "expanded pool" and he made that decision.
Spicer defended the press office's decision to limit the press included in the gaggle, saying "we had a pool and then we expanded it. We added some folks to come cover it."
"We do what we can to be accessible. We do what we can to accommodate the press," Spicer told the small group of reporters asking why other outlets were not included. "I think we have gone above and beyond when it comes to accessibility and openness and getting folks, our officials, our team. And so, respectfully I disagree with the premise of the question."
Other administrations, on occasion, excluded certain journalists in the past.
Early on in the Obama White House, the administration attempted to exclude Fox News from a press pool.
Hours earlier on Friday, Trump doubled down on his criticism of American mainstream media calling them "the enemy of the American People" during his speech to the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. He insisted reporters stop using unnamed sources.
"They have no sources they just make them up when there are none," Trump told the at-capacity CPAC crowd which cheered in agreement. "They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name. Let their name be put out there."
Several media advocacy groups called Friday's exclusion of several news outlets from the press gaggle "alarming."
"President Trump's calls for an end to anonymous sources was alarming. It is not the job of political leaders to determine how journalists should conduct their work, and sets a terrible example for the rest of the world, where sources often must remain anonymous to preserve their own lives," Committee to Protect Journalists executive director Joel Simon said in a statement. "We are concerned by the decision to bar reporters from a press secretary briefing. The U.S. should be promoting press freedom and access to information."
Reporters Without Borders in a statement called the administration's move "completely unacceptable and undemocratic in the country of the First Amendment."
It is absurd that there should be any public discourse examining where people void their bladders and bowels in 2017, and yet that backward and childish discussion illustrates exactly where we are as a country. Thanks in no small part to the White House’s reversal of Obama’s 2016 directive ordering schools to grant students access to their choice of bathroom, we are still talking about where transgender people piss—or in the case of Travis Weber, director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council (a hate group, per the Southern Poverty Law Center), talking around this while preaching intolerance.
On last night’s episode of MSNBC’s Hardball, Weber appeared (via satellite) alongside two trans women: activist/actress/icon Laverne Cox and Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. The show’s host Chris Matthews asked Weber, point blank, if Cox should use the men’s room. Based on presentation alone, which is all anyone potentially disturbed by encountering a trans person in a restroom would be going on anyway, the answer is a no-brainer. You don’t even have to think about it, just use your sense, see Laverne as the woman that she is, and say, “No.”
Weber, however, said, “So...”
He didn’t answer as to whether Keisling should use the men’s room either. It’s at once infuriating and a tangible illustration of how impractical these anti-trans arguments are, as they are based on theories regarding other people’s discomfort (as if the world isn’t already tailored to maximize the comfort of cisgender people) and trans boogeymen who simply do not exist. Weber is full of shit.
And he’s been full of shit! You would think that he would at least have some sort of answer to this beyond, “So...” given his showing on a May 2016 episode of Hardball, when Matthews asked Weber no fewer than 10 times which bathroom trans activist Jenny Boylan, who was also on the show, should use, and Weber couldn’t come up with an answer. This guy had almost a year to figure some caustic bullshit out that would at least suffice as something in response to this question, and he still couldn’t do it! This is his cause in a nutshell.
The conversation last night ensued in exactly the way you would expect if you have a brain and a shred of compassion, with Cox and Keisling making sound points, grounded in the reality of their experiences, and Weber flailing in lies and vagueness. Weber doesn’t have a leg to stand on, but thanks to the bigots ruling this country, his nonsense nonetheless has a platform.
While his CBS science-fiction series Under the Dome was sadly cancelled in 2015, as long as Koch keeps flashing those pearly whites something tells me the actor will do just fine. Now let the birthday boy get your hole through this day with some hot pics!

So, as promised I got out there in the wilderness of the Internet today hoping that I might find some sexy shots of handsome and hairy hunk Franco Noriega naked and showing off everything he’s got. Unfortunately, it seems as though he’s another cock tease 🙂
He likes getting a little suggestive in some photos, but there doesn’t seem to be any full-on naked shoots out there. Or, at least, I couldn’t find them if they do exist. If you know better then I expect you to share in the comments and let me know.
While we’re waiting for him to get his (obviously big) dick out for the cameras at some time in the future, we do have a lot of teasing photos of the handsome and hairy hunk posing and giving us some inspiration for some very horny fantasies.
Maybe it’s a popularity thing, but it seems most of his shoots involve him wearing nothing but some well-fitting underwear, or posing naked with something in the way to save his modesty.
I guess photographers out there know what we want to see, and looking at these photos they know how to deliver it, too!
Nolan Gould - ya know, the 18-year-old hottie with the tight twink bottie of our dreams of Modern Family fame - is featured in a new spread for Vulkan Magazine looking all sorts of confused and sexay! Apparently, I've been under a rock, and my dream of Nolan Gould being a dumb dumb dummy dumb dumb has officially been dashed, because Nolan is actually a member of MENSA and has a reported IQ of 150! This is old news but has seriously complicated my fake relationship with Nolan. Ugh. Goodbye. If only you were an idiot. RELATED: See Nick Jonas. JK, but...
The folks at Vulkan dress Nolan in some ~looks~ and it appears that maybe possibly kinda he's learning to give face, at least in some of the pics? On the cover photo, Gould looks like he just figured out how a camera works and he's like "damn, that's intense." Give us less FACE and more of that.
As you've probably already noticed, the folks at Vulkan more or less missed the entire fucking point of Nolan Gould, because unfortunately he's covered up in all of the photos. We at Fleshbot Gay know that Nolan Gould is 50% body, 20% adorbs curly hair, 20% upper thigh hair, and 10% bulge, and I won't hear otherwise! (Hopefully that last figure inflates when we get a closer look someday.)
The interview accompanying the photos proves that Nolan Gould is a total sweetie - like almost saccharin - and I actually believe all of it. Check out all of Nolan Gould's editorial realness, and check out the jizz-st of the interview below!
On his most embarrassing moments on the set of Modern Family:
The most embarrassing one was probably the blue spandex-wrestling singlet. You know you’re close with your coworkers when one of the wardrobe ladies has to run to the store and buy you more “modesty socks.” Each time I come out in an embarrassing outfit, the crew’s personal cameras start flashing. I think they are all going to blackmail me at some point.
Yeah, they'll use the photos to blackmail all over their panties
On the next five years:
Is it too much to hope that the show will still be on? I have a unique experience that will really allow me to decide where I want to go with my life. I’m really lucky for that. I’m currently applying to film school so that’s one possible path. I would love to be involved in some other areas of making entertainment to exercise some different creative muscles and add to projects from a different perspective.
On identifying with his character, Luke Dunphy, on Modern Family:
I used to think we were so different but not so much anymore. Because the show has been on for eight years, we’ve seen Luke change a lot. Let’s be honest, he used to be really stupid. Remember the kid who got his head stuck in the banister in episode one? It was fun to play dumb but I didn’t connect with him.
And on the most adorable thing you've ever heard:
I usually don’t mind (when fans come up to me in public.) If you see me on a date, please feel free to come up. Just make sure to talk about how funny and cool I am in front of my date!

There are a lot of gorgeous male models out there who really know how to tease, but after looking through some shoots with Franco Noriega I think he might be one of the best at it.
This shoot by photographer Jeff Segenreich is pretty damn sexy, but there’s more that I’m going to be sharing with you in the coming days and weeks. Now that I know this man exists, you can expect to see a lot more of him on the Gay Body Blog.
Obviously, he’s extremely handsome. But aside from his impressive good looks he’s also extremely athletic and looks damn fine with his shirt off. He also happens to be a little hairy, but not too much. I love seeing that on a handsome hunk like him and it definitely suits his look.
From what I’ve seen of other shoots with this guy he’s also pretty well hung, and he likes to tease and show off his bulge too. I don’t think there are any naked shots of him out there but you never know what we might find.
If you have any fave photos of the guy then leave a comment and let me know. In fact, leave a comment anyway, tell me what you think of him.
On Wednesday, CNN reported Kellyanne Conway was yanked off the air for a week following a long spate of unfortunate television appearances; a claim the White House categorically denies.
Thus far, Conway’s greatest hits have included her prodigious use of what she calls “alternative facts” (i.e., lies) and her bizarre, highly inadvisable on-air plug for Ivanka Trump’s fashion line.
But what reportedly sent the White House over the edge was the bedraggled Counselor’s claim that National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had the “full confidence” of Donald Trump mere hours before he was fired.
An anonymous source told CNN that Conway was barred from making any more television appearances over the next seven days since she was “off message.”
Another source claimed Conway was taken off the air to help the administration have “much more of a drama-free week.”
Since the Flynn incident, Conway said she planned on making far fewer television appearances, but these are the first reports that claim she’d been altogether pulled off the air.
She’s already been barred from several cable news programs, including CNN’s State of the Union and MSNBC’s Morning Joe over credibility issues, as Raw Story reports.
Unsurprisingly, White House officials denied these reports after CNN published them.
White House officials denied the report was true after CNN’s report.
“I’ve been invited on shows every day, including two Sunday shows,” Conway told CNN in an update. “I’m trying to focus on other pieces for my portfolio.”
This makes sense, as we often start tinkering with our portfolios when we start to suspect we’ll soon be out of a job.
Dylan Byers, the reporter who wrote the original story, clearly isn’t buying it:
Alas, it is true. She hasn’t been on TV for over a week. Fact they might put her back on TV at some point doesn’t change that. https://t.co/jlSoixx5Fc— Dylan Byers (@DylanByers) February 22, 2017
You do have to admire the White House press strategy… Don’t respond til after the story posts, then do something to imply it’s not true...— Dylan Byers (@DylanByers) February 22, 2017
