White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot down a question from White House correspondent April Ryan and called it an "absolutely ridiculous question" Tuesday.

Here's what happened

"Sarah, two questions," said Ryan. "The president said yesterday he was compliant. They turned over a million documents. If he was compliant with these investigations, why was there a search warrant needed?"

"This doesn't have anything to do with the president," responded Sanders, "and I would refer you to Michael Cohen and his attorney. When it comes to matters of the special counsel in dealings with the president we've been fully cooperative."

"OK, next question," replied Ryan. "With all of this turmoil, particularly this last week, has the president at any time, thought about stepping down before or now?"

"No," Sanders said quickly, "and I think that's an absolutely ridiculous question."

"It's not a ridiculous question," Ryan objected.

"I gave you two questions, April, we're moving on," Sanders said in response.

Ryan could have been referring to the various firings and resignations from the White House staff and the rest of his administration in the last few months. Most recently the president became angry at the actions of the FBI in raiding his personal lawyer's residence and office for documents relating to the payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Here's the video of Sanders' reaction to Ryan's question:

Ryan was at the center of the bizarre "pie gate" controversy when she accused Huckabee Sanders of lying about her baking skills after she posted a picture of a pecan pie she made for Thanksgiving. Sanders later baked Ryan another pie to prove her oven pastry bona fides.
