Hillary Clinton on Tuesday defended journalist April Ryan and congresswoman Maxine Waters after Ryan's question was shot down during a White House press briefing and Waters' hair was made fun of by Fox News correspondent Bill O’Reilly.

"Just look at all that's happened in the last few days to women who were simply doing their jobs," Clinton said at the Professional Business Women of California conference in San Francisco, per The Hill.

Ryan, a correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, was in the middle of asking a question Tuesday when White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer interrupted her and told her to "stop shaking your head."

Ryan's original question centered on how President Donald Trump's administration would work to repair its image.

"April Ryan, a respected journalist with unrivaled integrity, was doing her job just this afternoon in the White House press room when she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question," Clinton said.

O'Reilly on Tuesday referred to Waters' hair as a "James Brown wig."

"One of our own California congressmen Maxine Waters was taunted with a racist joke about her hair," Clinton said. "Too many women, especially women of color, have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these kinds of indignities in stride."
