On Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta after he questioned her “courage” after not calling on him during the daily briefing.
When Acosta tried to ask his question, Sanders was already making her way off the podium.
After the briefing, Acosta tweeted, “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. #courage.” Acosta has frequently sparred with President Donald Trump and White House officials.
Sanders wrote back, tweeting, “Courage isn’t taking ‘a question from CNN,’ Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing.”
Sanders signaled the briefing was over after she answered a question from Playboy White House correspondent Brian Karem, a CNN contributor. Acosta then shouted out a question as she was walking out.
Acosta asked, “Sarah, can I ask a question? Sarah, that’s the third briefing you’ve not taken a question from CNN. Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?”
