White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer hit back at reporters from MSNBC and the New York Times for false reporting regarding Secretary of Homeland Security Gen. John F. Kelly had not received a full briefing regarding President Trump’s executive action regarding refugees.
MSNBC’s Kristen Welker asked Spicer about the executive order’s roll out not going as smoothly as some in the Republican party would have liked.
Spicer shot back that MSNBC’s reporting, which stated Secretary Kelly was unaware of Trump’s executive order prior to its announcement, was incorrect. Kelly later held a press conference that described the number of the times he had be briefed on the matter.
Welker attempted to defend MSNBC’s reporting by throwing the New York Times under the bus.
“I apologize that MSNBC News reporting is based the New York Times false reporting,” Spicer responded.
The New York Times Glenn Thrush chimed in at this pointing declaring the New York Times reporting was accurate.
“I’m telling that I don’t believe the New York Times reporting is accurate,” Spicer said. “The Secretary on multiple occasions was briefed.”
