CNN‘s Jim Acosta repeatedly tried to interrupt White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders over the Trump administration’s border detention policy on Thursday. At one point, Huckabee told the CNN reporter that he isn’t able to understand “even short sentences.”

Acosta asked Sanders if the Bible allows for the separation of children from their parents, citing Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ earlier statements.

“I can say that it’s vey biblical to enforce the law,” she said, adding that she wasn’t aware of the attorney general’s comments.

Acosta continued on the separation of families, but Sanders shot back.

“That’s not what I said,” she responded. “I know it’s hard for you to understand, even short sentences, I guess.”

“That’s a cheap shot, Sarah!” one reporter yelled out.
