White House press secretary Sean Spicer got testy with veteran African-American reporter  April Ryan during Tuesday’s daily press briefing, and twice told her to “stop shaking your head” while he was answering her question.

Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks, started her questioning by asking Spicer how the administration would work to revamp its image amid multiple scandals.

Visibly riled, Spicer accused Ryan of having an agenda.

“It seems like you’re hell-bent on trying to make sure that whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays,” Spicer said.

Ryan interrupted to clarify her question, which prompted Spicer to say, “You asked me a question and I’m gonna answer it. Please. Stop shaking your head again…”

Watch the exchange in its entirety:

Immediately after the briefing ended, Ryan tweeted in frustration:

Following the presser, Ryan appeared on MSNBC to discuss what had just happened.

“You cannot ignore as a reporter,” the issues she grilled Spicer about, she said. “Sean is being the White House press secretary, talking about and trying to make this administration look better than what it does right now, and unfortunately I was road kill today.”

Ryan got support from Hillary Clinton, who referenced Ryan and Maxine Waters vs. Bill O’Reilly in her ‘comeback speech.’

    Clearly, Ms. Ryan got under Mr. Spicer’s very thin skin. He was so angry, he literally couldn’t see straight. She was not shaking her head. She was merely looking down…probably trying to make sense of his incoherrent babble. Grow a set Mr. Spicer, or next time, put your big girl panties on! Ms. Ryan has been there for 20 years. She’s not going anywhere. Keep this hard questions coming!!

But we all know he’s not going to stand up for himself more less trump. In a sad situation.

  6. The wealthy families and corporations who own this country, and their willing servants in the news media, Wall Street, “K” Street lobbyists, government and politics, want the rest of us to keep fighting about race, religion, abortion, gun control, sex changes, “trannies in the bathroom,” celebrity gossip and sports so they can keep stealing our tax $ and enjoy their lifestyles of the rich and famous.

  7. There’s no way I can watch those press conferences. It appears that guy is all over the place trying to cover for the fake prez. Damn I wish this nitemare would end.

    As usual jose’, talk about April not having thick skin, look at your orange president. Anytime anyone says anything he doesn’t agree with, his twitter fingers get to moving and it’s anything but uplifting and positive. Tell him to have the same skin as his male colleagues, because right now he comes across as an orange byotch!

      I agree The Don should toughen up and brush off some of the petty comments from the insignificants after all he is POTUS 45!!!!!!! So I’ll pass that on to him and you tell little miss powder puff to grow a pair

    Ms. Ryan wants to be considered a professional then she has to be strong and impervious to criticism and or a hostile response like many of her male veteran colleagues
