White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer lost it today when asked about Trump’s Russian connections, accusing the reporter of having an agenda.
“An exasperated Sean Spicer on Tuesday colorfully downplayed questions about ties between President Donald Trump’s associates and Russia, portraying a frenzied attempt to find connections where they don’t exist.”
“If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russia connection, the White House spokesman insisted during a contentious exchange with reporters.”
“At some point … you’re going to have to take ‘no’ for an answer, he said, at one point during his answer telling a reporter to quit shaking her head.”
You can watch the whole exchange here.
This isn’t the first time Spicer has failed to see what’s right in front of him. Yesterday, he refused to call a racist murder a hate crime.
