Spicer Double Teamed by Peter Alexander and Hallie Jackson: ‘You Guys Have an NBC Thing’
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called out two NBC journalists after he had back-to-back confrontational exchanges with them at Monday’s press briefing.
Spicer first sparred with Peter Alexander over Americans’ trust of President Donald Trump. Moments later, the administration flack called on Alexander’s colleague, Hallie Jackson. The correspondent first had a back-and-forth with Spicer on the President’s tweets.
Jackson then asked a follow-up, “Just yes or no: Are CBO numbers legitimate or not?”
Spicer replied by underlining that it wasn’t up to him to make that determination. However, the journalist pressed her point. The press secretary retorted, “Hold on, Hallie! You guys have like an NBC thing.”
Some of the journalists in the White House briefing room got a kick out of Spicer’s quip, as laughter was immediately heard on the feed.
