We now live in a world in which White House press briefings must be drawn to be seen

When life gives you off-camera White House press briefings, make your Supreme Court sketch artist draw them.

That seems to have been CNN’s thought, anyway.

The network sent its Supreme Court sketch artist Bill Hennessy to visit White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s domain on Friday. While he didn’t have his easel to work with, he did a pretty decent job standing up in the back of the room.

The drawings and Hennessy’s presence at the briefing highlighted just how few on-camera briefings the White House holds anymore.

As CNN pointed out in its own article on the subject, Spicer and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders have held just four on-camera briefings this month, out of 17 weekdays.
