White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's objection to reporters questioning investigations into President Donald Trump's Russia ties reached a new level on Tuesday when Spicer imploded during his daily briefing.
American Urban Radio Correspondent April Ryan asked how the administration could possibly move past the scandal, noting, "Two and a half months in, you’ve got this [Sally Yates] story today, you’ve got other things going on. You’ve got Russia, you’ve got wiretaps … You’ve got investigations on Capitol Hill."
Spicer replied, "I’ve said it from the day that I got here until whenever that there is no connection. You’ve got Russia! If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection."
The internet didn't go easy on Spicy's salad dressing remark.
