Does Sean Spicer’s bossy tone sound familiar? Remember kindergarten?
On Wednesday, “The Daily Show” aired a mashup of the White House press secretary fielding questions not from anxious journalists but from a classroom full of rambunctious 5-year-olds.
Queries included “Can I feel the fish today?” “When are we going to learn about Russia?” and “Where are my building blocks?”
“You don’t get to just yell out questions. We’re going to raise our hand like big boys and girls,” Spicer snaps when one boy, looking like he’s about to have an accident, asks to use the bathroom.
The clip even pokes fun at a recent confrontation in which Spicer demanded that April Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks, stop shaking her head during a press briefing last week.
“It’s my turn!” a student named April shouts, referring to getting to feed the classroom fish.
“At some point, April, you’re going to have to take no for an answer,” Spicer says. “You’re shaking your head — take no for an answer.”
