WASHINGTON — Sean Spicer unloaded on the media at the press briefing Thursday because he believes reporters are holding President Trump to a different standard than Barack Obama.

The press secretary argued that there was no similar outrage over a president weighing in on judicial matters when Obama did it during his State of the Union in 2010. In that address, Obama criticized the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling on Citizens United.

“The president is going to speak his mind,” Spicer said. “The idea of one branch talking about or commenting on another is as old as our Republic. I find it interesting that when Barack Obama criticized the Supreme Court for it’s ruling on Citizens United, there wasn’t all of this.”
