White House press secretary Sean Spicer mocked New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush this week after he interrupted Spicer during a press briefing on Thursday, who was calling on a different member of the media to ask a question.

In video of the incident, Spicer is seen calling on Bloomberg White House correspondent Shannon Pettypiece when Thrush begin to ask a question out loud.

But Spicer wasn't having any of it.

"Glenn, this isn't a TV program. You don't get to just yell out questions. We're gonna raise our hands like big boys and girls because it's not your job to just yell out questions," Spicer told Thrush when he continued to ask a question without being called on.

Ironically, the tumultuous public relationship between Spicer and Thrush has been mocked by the comedians on "Saturday Night Live" twice in recent weeks during skits portraying press briefings.

The Times was one of the media outlets that was controversially excluded from a press gaggle with Spicer on Friday.
