‘Why don’t we turn the cameras on?’ Listen to Spicer get heckled at off-camera White House briefing
The White House on Monday held yet another daily briefing on Monday in which no cameras were allowed to take video — and CNN’s Jim Acosta let White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer have an earful.
During a contentious exchange, CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to ask Spicer a question, to which Spicer replied that there were no cameras on.
“Maybe you should turn the cameras on, Sean?” Acosta asked.
Spicer tried to move on from Acosta’s question by addressing another reporter. Acosta, however, wasn’t ready to let it go.
“Why not turn the cameras on, Sean?” he interjected. “They’re in the room, the lights are on.”
