Jim Acosta Tries to Ask Follow-Up Question Four Times — Sanders Lays Smackdown: 'Not Today, Jim!'

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta have had a history of battling head-to-head in the briefing room, and Monday was no exception.

Sanders was particularly feisty after several reporters pressed her on various different topics and tried to get multiple questions in despite her insisting that she was moving on. 

Acosta asked:

“Rudy Giuliani, the president's outside lawyer, said to the Huffington Post, 'In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted. [...] If he shot James Comey, he'd be impeached the next day. Impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him.' Is that appropriate language coming from the president's outside lawyer to be talking about the president shooting Jim Comey in that fashion?”

“You would have to ask Rudy Giuliani about his specific comments,” Sanders responded. “But thankfully, the president hasn't done anything wrong. We feel very comfortable in that.”

Sanders then tried to move on to the next reporter, but Acosta jumped back in, saying, “If I could ask a follow-up question.”

Again, Sanders tried to move on, but Acosta tried multiple times to jump back in and ask a follow-up question.

After the briefing, Acosta took to Twitter:
