‘It’s Not Your Press Briefing’: Spicer Chastises Reporter for Interrupting Others


White House spokesman Sean Spicer reprimanded a reporter for interrupting another journalist during Monday's press briefing.

Spicer was answering a question on President Donald Trump's campaign having alleged ties to Russian officials when multiple reporters tried to ask a follow-up question.

"And then obviously there's been discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time, but beyond–" Spicer said before ABC's Jonathan Karl tried to ask a question.

Spicer would not grant him the question.

"Hey, Jonathan, hold on," he said. "Can you stop interrupting other people's questions?"

Karl continued trying to ask his question.

"Hey, Jonathan, somebody's asking a question," Spicer said.

"It's not your press briefing," he continued. "Julie's asking a question. Please calm down."
