Sean Spicer: Ridiculous for Pelosi to Call Bannon a White Supremacist

Sean Spicer hit back at Nancy Pelosi today after the Democratic leader called Steve Bannon a white supremacist yesterday.

Pelosi said that it’s “making America less safe” to “have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council.”

MSNBC’s Greta Van Susteren asked Spicer about how the White House wants to “turn down the heat” of all the political rhetoric going around.

Spicer reacted to Pelosi’s remark by saying, “To make that kind of an outrageous charge is ridiculous, and it’s just––it’s not something that you would expect from her.”

Pelosi vocalized what has become a massive efforts by Democrats and activists to get Bannon removed from that NSC seat after the announcement was made a few days ago.
