WATCH LIVE: Sean Spicer holds first official news briefing

Watch the news briefing live at 1:30 p.m. EST Monday.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer is holding his first official briefing with the press Monday.

On Saturday, Spicer made false claims about inauguration attendance in an on-camera statement at the White House, and criticized the media for the way outlets compared the crowd size of President Donald Trump’s inauguration to that of former President Barack Obama.

He did not take any questions from reporters Saturday; he is expected to do so Monday for the first time.

Following the briefing, the PBS Newshour’s politics team will go live on Facebook to offer more context and take your questions about Spicer’s remarks. You can also watch on Periscope.
