White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is taking heat for his confrontation with a reporter after a question about the Trump administration's image. Spicer got into it with American Urban Radio Networks' correspondent April Ryan during the daily briefing Tuesday. Spicer accused the veteran White House correspondent of pushing an agenda, at one point telling her to "stop shaking your head."
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was among those defending Ryan and bashing Spicer for belittling a respected female journalist. Speaking to the Professional Business Women of California, Clinton said Ryan was just doing her job when"she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question."
