During today’s White House press briefing, Sean Spicer addressed the tweet President Trump sent out promoting Judge Jeanine Pirro‘s Fox News program.

It may have been the case that Trump tweeted after seeing a graphic for her program teasing “stunning new details” about his wiretapping claims, but then the big news from her show turned out to be Pirro calling on Paul Ryan to step down as Speaker because of the health care failure last week.

So, naturally, people have been wondering whether this was Trump indirectly endorsing her message, even though he has publicly spoken highly of Ryan following the withdrawal of the bill from the House floor Friday.

Ryan’s office said the two of them spoke and Trump reassured him that the tweet was not about him, and today Spicer reiterated that.

“He [Trump] is a fan of the show,” Spicer explained. “He tweeted out support of it. That’s it, plain and simple.”
