Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck offered a lighthearted jab at Earnest, reminding the president's aide that there are "no pictures on the floor."
House rules formally bar pictures from being taken on the chamber floor, though lawmakers have been known to flout the largely unenforced rule, especially during big televised speeches. 
 
Several lawmakers were seen snapping photos during Obama's address Tuesday night, and lawmakers have frequently tweeted photos at previous speeches, including last year's by Pope Francis.
