Sean Spicer mocks reporter asking about Russian Federation during White House presser

"When you start playing childish games, you don't get the information you need".

Ryan became the target of Spicer's ire on Tuesday, after she pushed the press secretary on ongoing questions about federal investigations into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Spicer accused Ryan of trying to advance her "agenda" as she tried to clarify her question.

"The facts are that every single person who has been briefed on this subject has come away with the same conclusion - Republican, Democrat", Spicer told reporters.

"I'm sorry that disgusts you - you're shaking your head", he said, talking over Ryan. "I dropped my head, I didn't shake my head at first", but saw that she did upon reviewing the tape-not that there's some rule against shaking one's head.

I generally give the daily Sean Spicer Follies a pass, at least as far as commentary goes, because what more can you say about a guy who goes out every dawning day and feeds another hunk of his soul to the wolverines.

Spicer: But, April, hold on.

Ryan:. call her that name. "At some point you're going to have to take no for an answer".

Asked whether she felt Spicer's treatment was insulting, Ryan confirmed: "It was insulting but. people are seeing the treatment of the press and how we are treated", said Ryan in a chat with The Washington Post. "It's not a question of whether we trust them or not, it's just, 'Is that what they are really supposed to be doing?'"

Ryan cited investigations into the activities of the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. How do you fix that perception problem. So when people are making fun of his eating habits you just have to sit back and smile. Two and a half months in.

"I didn't hear a word she said", he commented while some Fox & Friends cohosts chortled.

"It's frankly demeaning for some folks to say that she can't take it, ' Spicer said, after taking heat for telling a White House reporter to 'stop shaking your head" turing a tense White House briefing.

It was a banner day for disrespectful old white men.

"I didn't know what was going to happen today, but I was prepared either way", she said.

Tur shot back: "Yeah, his job is spin".

Shortly after the incident, Ryan seemingly (sub) tweeted the following.

KATY TUR [sarcastically]: So April, you've got an agenda.

It was an attempted dressing down using Russian dressing. "They were in support of me and they had me laughing", said Ryan to the Erik Wemple Blog.

TUR: Well, that's what he's saying.

Ryan, like many journalists, appears to be frustrated with the amount of mistruths and misdirection emanating from the Trump administration, so it stands to reason that some sort of nonverbal frustration might spill out.

"President Trump has put an end to that", he said. And you can not ignore as a reporter that there are issues on Capitol Hill. She continued, "You have other things going on, you've got Russian Federation, you got wire-tapping". So, if you're asking what we're doing, I think we continue to do it.
