Sean Spicer made the news today after telling off one reporter in the press room who was shaking her head the entire time Spicer was doing his briefing, which is rude at best, when Spicer decided he wasn’t going to stand for these reporters’ bad behavior.
“Stop shaking your head again,” Spicer chided American Urban Radio correspondent April Ryan. “It seems like you’re hell-bent on trying to make sure that whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays.”
Spicer was talking about revamping the White House’s image and making sure their message stays on par with that of the public, at the same time trying to fight bad press from spreading fake news that makes the administration look bad.
The Daily Mail reports:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer went after a reporter for ‘shaking her head’ after she pressed him on the how the White House would give itself an image makeover to try to turn around the Russia story.
‘Stop shaking your head again,’ Spicer chided American Urban Radio correspondent April Ryan during a tense exchange at Tuesday’s White House press briefing.
‘It seems like you’re hell-bent on trying to make sure that whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays,’ Spicer told her.
Ryan asked Spicer at the briefing how the Trump administration would revamp its image after a series of reports about Trump associates and their connections to Russia.
‘How does this administration revamp its image two and a half months in?’ Ryan asked.
leading story on Tuesday was whether the White House prohibited the Obama holdover acting attorney general from testifying at a House Intelligence hearing probing alleged Trump associates’ Russia ties.
Spicer strongly disputed the charge about the hearing, and didn’t appreciate Ryan’s line of questioning.
