Spicer Regrets Berating Reporters Over Inaugural Crowd


Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said he regrets his fiery exchange with reporters in the White House briefing following President Trump's inauguration.

Appearing on Brooke Baldwin's show Monday, CNN contributor April Ryan apparently did not know that Spicer expressed regret over his handling of the incident in a New York Times interview just posted.

During his unofficial first press conference, Spicer did not take questions, instead saying the administration would "hold the press accountable", and contending falsely that the January inauguration was the "largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in-person and around the globe".

In the wake of his surprise cameo at the Emmys on Sunday, Sean Spicer is ready to admit he was wrong.

Spicer often sparred with reporters during his tenure, and resigned after a disagreement with the president over the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

Ryan, of course, got into a high-profile altercation with Spicer in the White House Briefing Room in which the Press Secretary told Ryan to stop shaking her head. "This was an attempt to poke a little fun at myself and add a little bit of levity to the event".
