President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming press secretary scorched a CNN anchor over “unbelievable” questions about Russia.
Sean Spicer has been making the rounds and let CNN’s Alisyn Camerota have it over recent US sanctions on Russia during an interview on Monday that should not be missed.
The action really gets going about half way through the video around the 3:30 mark.
Camerota pressed the Trump spokesman on what the president-elect’s response would eventually be if the government finally concludes that Russia was behind the hack of the DNC during the 2016 presidential election.
“How can you ask me what it looks like when we don’t even have a final report?” Spicer asked.
“The idea that you should be talking about the conclusion or actions you’re going to take on a conclusion that’s not final yet is unbelievably irresponsible,” Spicer said, raising his voice as Camerota tried to interrupt. “The idea you’re asking anybody what their reaction should be to a non-final report is unbelievable.”
As Camerota repeatedly pushed back, Spicer told her to “hold on” and “listen to what you just said,” as he showed her the problem with her line of questioning.
“You’re not making any plans, you guys aren’t even having conversations about the possibility– ?” Camerota continued to press Spicer, apparently not listening to his answers very clearly.
“I know it’s frustrating for you that we’re doing it in a logical way,” Spicer fired back. “But no. We’re going to get all the information, get briefed properly and then make a decision. We’re not going to put the cart before the horse.”
