Jim Acosta and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are feuding with each other on Twitter because the White House Press Secretary refuses to answer CNN’s questions for the White House.
During her press pool on Monday, Sanders declined to take questions from Acosta for the third briefing in a row. Acosta tried to get a word in with Sanders as she wrapped up today’s gaggle, but it was no use, and Sanders walked out without acknowledging Acosta’s shouted questions.
After the briefing was over, Acosta got on Twitter and snarked that Sanders is afraid of CNN’s questions:

Hours later, Sanders hit back at Acosta while invoking the two military veterans she had as her guests inside the James S. Brady Briefing Room today.
