On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about President-elect Donald Trump’s first press conference since being elected.
During the press conference, Trump was especially combative with BuzzFeed News and CNN. The former had reported details of unverifiable Trump memos.
Earnest admitted that the Obama administration had issues with the White House press corps, particularly being asked tough questions.
“There are ample occasions where I, and some of my White House colleagues, have not agreed with the way that certain journalists have chose to ask questions of the president,” Earnest told the reporter. “Sometimes we’ve been frustrated by the number of questions that are asked in one exchange.”
Earnest then proceed to attack incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for threating to throw out CNN’s Jim Acosta, who tried to shout questions at Trump during the press conference.
