Press Secretary Sean Spicer has cemented a firm reputation for himself in the business as a no nonsense communications officer in just the forty days he has had in the position thus far. While some people hate his edginess others love it. Many conservatives are reveling in the fact that he does not back down from a fight and from the liberal bullying.
Watch a hilarious exchange between Press Secretary Spicer and a New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush,
Spicer was trying to call on a female member of the media who had a question to ask him. He called her name out a few times while Thrush tried interrupting several times. This all took place during a press briefing on a Thursday at the White House. But Thrush was not getting the memo and continued to interrupt until Spicer would not take it anymore.
Spicer retorted the following to Thrush,
“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.”
Their feud has been mocked on Saturday Night Live a few times in recent weeks. The New York Times was also one of the outlets that was left out of the press gaggle on Friday. The administration and the New York Times have clearly had a rather tempestuous relationship throughout the presidential campaign and now while the administration is currently in power.
That does not appear to be changing anytime soon. The administration has called out media outlets for telling blatant lies and distorting facts. as well as, providing unruly reporters to attend briefings. They should not be surprised when their agitated behavior is met with similar sentiments. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure that one out,
