It's been just over one week since Donald Trump took the oath of office and became the 45th President of the United States, but controversy has already taken place. After being pressed on a variety of issues by members of the media, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was not happy about it.

Spicer implodes

Not long after Donald Trump pulled off the upset and defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to become the new commander in chief, all eyes quickly shifted to who would be surrounding him in the White House. Within weeks, Trump named Sean Spicer, former Communications Director of the Republican National Committee, as his new press secretary.

In the week and change that Spicer has officially been the mouthpiece for the White House, he's clashed with the media ad nauseam. On Monday, Spicer once again got into a heated exchange with the media during a press conference, as reported on January 30.

Sean Spicer stepped up to the podium on Monday afternoon, and for nearly his entire time taking questions, engaged in a controversial stand off with the press. Topics ranged from the executive order that banned travel from select Muslim countries, the promotion of Steve Bannon, and the White House omitting the mention of "Jews" during their recent Holocaust message. On the Muslim ban, Spicer attempted to write off the backlash, stated that people being inconvenienced for a few hours is a small price to pay for the bigger picture.

"It's a shame that people were inconvenienced, obviously. But at the end of the day we're talking about a couple hours," he noted.

Spicer on the Holocaust

When the issue of the aforementioned Holocaust statement was brought up, Sean Spicer grew visibly frustrated. "To suggest that remembering the Holocaust and acknowledging all of the people, Jews, Gypsy, Priests, disabled, gays, and lesbians, it is pathetic that people are picking on his statement," Spicer said.

He then went on to attack the media for allegedly taking too many statements out of context in an attempt to smear Donald Trump.

Spicer on Bannon

The next topic to be brought up was over Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, formally of Breitbart News, being elevated in his role in the White House by becoming part of Trump's National Security Counsel.

Sean Spicer attempted to make the case that former President Obama and President Bush had done similar actions in the past, while calling it "utter nonsense" to suggest otherwise.

In clarification, Spicer went on to later confirm that Steve Bannon would not be apart of every meeting. As the Trump administration continues to battle with the press, it doesn't appear that both sides will be on the same page anytime soon.
