For the first seven months of Donald Trump's presidency, Sean Spicer was the administration's spokesman, fielding questions and comments from an often hostile media. Now that his time as White House Press Secretary has passed, he's had time to reflect. Does he have any regrets? What does he make of Trump's relationship with the media? And with the American people generally? On this edition of Against the Current, Dan Proft asks Spicer those questions and more, reflecting on his time as chief spokesman for the Trump administration. Proft and Spicer also look forward: Are Republicans in trouble in 2018? Is the GOP experiencing an ideological change under Trump? Answers to these questions and much more analysis in this can't miss ATC.

How has Spicer’s private life changed since his time as the White House Press Secretary? Former White House Secretary, Sean Spicer joins Dan and Amy to discuss the media, President Trump, and his new book.
