Karine Jean-Pierre Clashes in Tense Moment with CBS Reporter

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shared a heated exchange with a CBS reporter over questions related to President Joe Biden's classified documents discovered in his University of Pennsylvania office.

Jean-Pierre refused to answer the reporter's question, instead telling him not to be "contentious."

"Ed, Ed, Ed, we don't need to have this- we work very well together," Jean-Pierre interrupted. "We don't need to have this kind of confrontation. Ask your question and I will answer them the best that I can."

"I know, but I'm just saying we don't need to have contention- you don't need to be contentious with me here, Ed," Jean-Pierre later added.

The exchange is not the first time the press secretary has chosen to attack reporters rather than answer questions.

"I have to say, Michael, I take — look, I understand what you're saying," she said in a press briefing last week. "But I do take issue with comparing us to Donald Trump."

Jean-Pierre then claimed that the Trump administration "tore babies away from their moms, from their parents, from their families," which she said was part of Trump's immigration "philosophy" according to the report.

The press secretary's tendency to be "triggered" and respond in anger instead of answering the questions of reporters continues to repeat in daily press briefings.

The concerns may be part of the reason Jake Sullivan has regularly appeared in briefings alongside the press secretary. A list of celebrity guests and other experts has also been added to daily breifings to help change the focus from Jean-Pierre.

The latest tense moment appears to be part of a pattern against both conservative and mainstream reporters who trigger the press secretary in areas she wishes not to address.
