CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted out a question at White House press secretary Sarah Sanders as she exited the briefing on Wednesday, presumably upset that she didn’t call on him.


Shouting questions over all of the other reporters in the room is a common Acosta tactic, and he consistently complains when he doesn’t get an official question during the briefing. (RELATED: Acosta Whines That CNN Doesn’t Get Questions At White House, Sanders’ Response Is Cold As Ice) 

Reporters spent most of their time on Monday and Tuesday asking about the president’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels, but that wasn’t enough for Acosta, who shouted, “Sarah, when is the president going to speak on Stormy Daniels?”

“Why hasn’t he spoken on Stormy Daniels?” he repeated. (RELATED: Acosta Shouts Gun Question After Solemn Trump Speech)

Sanders, of course, didn’t respond as she was already on her way out the door.

Acosta snarked on Twitter that Sanders “didn’t really have any answers #dodge.”
