Sean Spicer Loses Cool With April Ryan Over President Donald Trump And Russia Comments
By Shawn Rice
White House press secretary Sean Spicer started a feud with American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan. Spicer reached a breaking point when it came to questions about President Donald Trump and Russia. While Ryan said that the White House has a Russia issue to deal with, Spicer accused her of pushing her own agenda and even instructed her not to shake her head at him. You can see the exchange between the two below.

Spicer pointed to those who have said there is no proof of collusion between Russia and the Trump team — which is true but is only a part of the inquiries and is still being investigated by the FBI. He added, “I’m sorry that that disgusts you. You’re shaking your head.” Spicer then told Ryan that she was “going to have to take no for an answer” when it came to the idea of collusion with Russia. However, social media was not supportive of Spicer’s comments.
Here are some reactions on social media to the exchange. What did you think about Spicer calling out Ryan? Let us know in the comments section.
April’s not only a grown woman, but she’s been shaking her head, proudly, at many press secretaries before Spicer. https://t.co/8Zb7cSybE3

April Ryan is my hero. I’ve just been WAITING for a reporter to look at Sean Spicer and say, “No.” during a press briefing.

“April Ryan” “stop shacking your head”. The remnants of “Jim Crow” and the audacity of the “White Male Ego.” This is down right disgraceful
