White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who hasn’t let the mainstream media run over him since President Donald Trump took office, let them have it again Thursday at a White House news briefing when a reporter began shouting questions without being called on.
Glenn Thrush of The New York Times persisted even after Spicer had called on another reporter. That gave Spicer a perfect opportunity to lecture him on press room etiquette.
“Glenn, this isn’t a TV program … OK? You don’t get to just yell out questions. We’re going to raise our hands like big boys and girls. Because it’s not your job to just yell out questions.”
Spicer was probably referencing the fact that both men have been portrayed on “Saturday Night Live” skits, and his remark was perfect. Take a look:
If you’ll recall, Thrush is the former Politico reporter who colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign by sending it copies of stories before publishing them.
Spicer’s new conferences are gaining television popularity for how Spicer handles the media, and his exchange with Thrush was just one example of how viewers enjoy watching Spicer put reporters in their place when they need to put in their place — which is more often than not.

Spicer knows who these people are, and he knows they’re still upset about Clinton losing the election. However upset they may be, it’s no reason to act like children during news conferences.
However, we are talking about liberals, who rarely act mature.
It would seem Spicer has a message for them: If they can’t grow up, they might as well get used to getting “spiced.”
