<p>During Friday&rsquo;s White House press briefing, Bloomberg correspondent Justin Sink pressed Sean Spicer on whether the administration was &ldquo;too excited&rdquo; by a positive <a href="; target="_blank">February jobs report</a> released that morning: <strong>&ldquo;Obviously you guys were excited by the jobs report, but maybe a little too excited.</strong> Both you and the President <a href="…; target="_blank">tweeting within an hour</a> of the jobs data coming out, which is a violation of the federal rules....<strong>what do you say generally to critics who say the risk of doing this is politicizing what should be kind of non-partisan, by-the-books job data?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Spicer pointed out the absurdity of the question and even referenced his <a href="; target="_blank"><em>Saturday Night Live</em> alter-ego</a> portrayed by Melissa McCarthy: <strong>&ldquo;I think tweeting out, &lsquo;Great way to start a Friday, here are the actual numbers that you all have reported&rsquo; is a bit &ndash; I mean, don&#39;t make me make the podium move.&rdquo;</strong> The entire press corps, including Sink, erupted in laughter.</p>
