Jean-Pierre snaps at reporter who waited four months to ask a question: ‘You’re wasting our time, sir’

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre snapped at a reporter who said he has not gotten to ask a question in four months on Tuesday.

National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby spoke at the White House press briefing to provide additional comments regarding U.S. involvement in Ukraine. The Frontier Post managing editor Jalil Afridi was allowed to ask Kirby a question, when he requested if he could have two questions after being passed over for months.

“Mr. Kirby, I’m getting a chance after four months, so I hope I can ask just two questions,” Afridi said.

“Uh, it’s up to Karine,” Kirby responded, gesturing to the side where the press secretary stood.

Another reporter could be heard saying, “Thank you for asking that,” as Jean-Pierre left the room.
