CNN's Jim Acosta objected to his network not being called upon during Monday's White House press briefing, noting it was the third straight time White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't take a question from the cable network.
“Sarah, this is the third briefing you have not taken a question from CNN. Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?” Acosta asked as Sanders left the podium.
Sanders continued walking out of the James S. Brady Briefing Room without looking back or acknowledging the question.
“All right. Jim Acosta there at the end trying to get a question in," Baldwin said before reviewing the press briefing.
Acosta took to Twitter afterward to repeat the complaint and included the hashtag "courage," implying that Sanders was afraid to take any questions from CNN reporters in the room.
"Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. #courage," he wrote to his 537,000 followers.
"Your organization is terrible," Trump told Acosta when he tried to ask a question at the Jan. 12 press conference as president-elect.

"You're attacking us. Can you give us a question?” Acosta replied.
"Don't be rude. No, I'm not going to give you a question. You are fake news," Trump responded before moving on to another question.
