White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been given a tough time by some news outlets, from CNN to Saturday Night Live, liberal networks have pounced on Spicer and used their platforms to mock him at every chance they get. But Spicer has had enough and during a press briefing on Thursday, Spicer was quick to shut down a rude New York Times reporter.
New York times reporter Glenn Thrush continued to interrupt Spicer during the briefing who was calling on a different members of the media to ask a question.
In video of the incident, Spicer is seen calling on Bloomberg White House correspondent Shannon Pettypiece when Thrush begin to ask a question out loud.
But Spicer wasn’t having any of it.
“Glenn, this isn’t a TV program. You don’t get to just yell out questions. We’re gonna raise our hands like big boys and girls because it’s not your job to just yell out questions,” Spicer told Thrush when he continued to ask a question without being called on.
The Times was one of the media outlets that was excluded from a press gaggle with Spicer on Friday – so they’ve probably got hurt feelings are now needing their safe space!
