STRESS SECRETARY! KJP Storms Out of Press Briefing After Dodge Accusation

So, the press secretary can just walk out now?

According to a report from The Daily Wire, Thursday’s White House press briefing fell into chaos when press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was confronted about her refusal to take questions from Today News Africa reporter Simon Ateba.

“Karine, why is it so hard to take a question on the U.S.-Africa Summit, when the President is meeting 50 African leaders — the biggest gathering of leaders of his administration?” he asked. “Why is it hard for you to give me a question?”

From The Daily Wire:

Jean-Pierre claimed that it was not “hard” for her to give him a question, to which he responded that “it’s been months” since she had supposedly answered one of his questions.

The two went back and forth for several moments before Jean-Pierre packed up her binder and stormed out of the room. She had claimed that she would give a question to a colleague of Ateba, but he remained persistent.

KJP finally just packed up and left: “Okay. Thanks, everybody. I’ll see you tomorrow,” she said as she left the room.
