White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer ruffled feather at Friday's press corps briefing when he stopped even pretending to respond to questions from news agencies not friendly to the Trump administration.
"Why explaination did Mr. Kushner give for not disclosing his meeting with Russian officials when applying for his security clearance?" NBC correspondent Hallie Jackson asked.
"Yum, yum, yum. I love vanilla," Secretary Spicer said while he ate an entire pint of Häagen-Dazs ice cream, acting as though he couldn't hear her questions.

Mark Landler attempted to ask about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian hackers.
"Fake news. Fake news. Fake news," Spicer said while failing to keep a rhythm with a rubber-ball-and-paddle toy.
"I don't suppose you have any news on why Steve Bannon was removed from the National Security Council?" CNN correspondent Jim Acosta reluctantly asked.
"Is someone talking? It's like someone's talking, but all I hear is buzzing, like a little annoying knat in my ear."
Finally, Fox News' John Roberts raised his hand.
"What is the president doing to get hard-working Americans back to work?"
"Excellent question, John! Why don't you come back after lunch for a two-hour sit-down with President Trump. The rest of you rubes can go now."
