CNN's Jake Tapper fired back after White House press secretary Sean Spicer criticized The New York Times for incorrectly reporting his birth place.
The Tapper tweet also included a cc to former President Barack Obama's Twitter account.
The Hill noted that in September President Donald Trump announced he believed Obama was born in the U.S. The website reported that Trump had questioned the former president's citizenship back in 2011.
Spicer had complained on Saturday about a Times story that included a reference to him being "New England born."
But Glenn Thrush, a reporter for the Times, said he emailed Spicer twice about the story, but never received a response. Spicer noted those emails never included a question about his birth place.
The Times has now corrected its story and includes the following note:
"Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to Sean Spicer's upbringing. He was New England bred, having been raised in Rhode Island; he was not 'New England born.' (Mr. Spicer would not go on the record and give the correct facts pertaining to his birthplace.)"
