White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley gave comedian Kathy Griffin at taste of her own medicine when the two ran into each other at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

According to the Washington Blade, who brought Griffin as their guest to the dinner, the “awkward moment” ensued when Gidley squeezed past their table.

Griffin reportedly asked Gidley how he sleeps at night, to which he responded, “very well, thank you.”

“Are we really going to do this?” Gidley reportedly added.

Griffin apparently got annoyed by this comment and retorted, “Yes we are, suck my dick! No, really, suck my dick!”

Gidley, who was drinking a Tecate beer at the time, told Griffin that he was going to go enjoy his Mexican beer “before we build the wall and you can’t get these anymore.”

The exchange ended when Griffin shouted “fuck you!” and the table nervously laughed at the incident.
