Outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki chided a reporter for an African news site after he repeatedly interrupted her and other journalists at her final press briefing on Friday.
Simon Ateba, who runs the website Today News Africa, repeatedly shouted ‘will you take a question from the back of the room?’ interrupting his press colleagues as well as Psaki.
Ateba first interrupted Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller, and then began shouting over ABC News reporter Mary Bruce as she tried to ask a question.
Bruce, her frustration evident, responded ‘Simon, please stop,’ but Ateba was undeterred and repeated his demands.
‘If you can spread the questions from across the room and all of us at the back of the room,’ shouted Ateba.
