Sean Spicer Opens White House Press Briefing With a Question from April Ryan

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer went to April Ryan, White House correspondent for the National Urban Radio Network, for the first question.

Spicer and Ryan had a heated exchange during which Spicer told Ryan “stop shaking your head.” Ryan has appeared on both MSNBC and CNN to discuss the exchange.

It seems, though, that both Spicer and Ryan have buried the hatch.

“With that, I’m glad to take your questions. April,” Spicer said following the reading of his opening remarks.

“Why thank you, Sean,” Ryan responded.

Spicer asked Ryan, “How are you today?”

“I’m fine. And how are you?” Ryan followed up.

“Fantastic,” replied Spicer. At this point the White House press corps started to break out into laughter, after pleasantries between the two.
