CNN reporter Jim Acosta expressed frustration on Monday after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not call on him at that day's press briefing.

During the White House press briefing on Monday, Acosta attempted to ask Huckabee Sanders multiple questions, but she did not give him the opportunity to speak, calling on other reports instead.

"Gosh it's so bizarre how @PressSec keeps avoiding questions from CNN. #cantstandtheheat," Acosta tweeted afterward.

Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, has become known for frequently interrupting and clashing with President Donald Trump and other administration officials during press conferences. Some CNN insiders have said that they believe Acosta is, through his outbursts at press briefings, "angling to host an opinion show" on the network.
