It's no secret that Donald Trump and his administration have not seen eye to eye with the mainstream media. For White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, that bad blood isn't getting any better.

Spicer's walkout

On the day Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, he got off on the wrong foot with the media. When addressing his plans for immigration reform, the former host of "The Apprentice" labeled those entering the United States illegally from Mexico as "murderers" and "rapists." In the two years that have followed, Trump has only increased his war of words with the press, referring to journalists as "terrible," and saying they are among the "worst people" he's ever met.

Trump's negative feelings about the media has poured over to other members of his team, including Sean Spicer. Since the start of the new administration just over 100 days ago, Spicer has found himself in several controversial situations, most notably being his questionable remarks about Hitler and the Holocaust when making a failed comparison to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Spicer has also been the butt of many jokes, including on "Saturday Night Live" where actress Melissa McCarthy has played him in a satirical role. As reported by The Hill on May 2, Spicer once again created headlines by walking out off a Press Briefing before allowing anyone to ask questions.

According to The Hill on Tuesday, Sean Spicer stormed out of his own press briefing without the press even asking him a question.

During the aforementioned press briefing, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly spoke to reporters for over a half hour while Spicer looked on from afar. As Mulvaney and Kelly finished up, Spicer quickly got up and walked out off the room. Reporters could be heard shouting his name, "Sean, Sean," but the press secretary never returned.

Spicer bails

Sean Spicer's decision to leave the press briefing is unusual, but not surprising considering the tense relationship the White House has with the media. Spicer was expected to field questions regarding the continuing Russian scandal, the upcoming fight over health care, a potential government shutdown, as well as the controversial comments that Donald Trump has made over the last 48 hours dealing with a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, as well as his remarks about Andrew Jackson and the Civil War which resulted in endless mocking and trolling of the commander in chief.
