A Playboy reporter interrupted the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Thursday while she was answering another journalist's question on border detentions of migrant children.

Brian Karem, who is also a CNN political analyst, shouted at Sanders while she was responding to CBS News correspondent Paula Reid.

Reid asked Sanders why the Trump administration continues to "separate children" from their parents when families attempt to enter the United States and claim asylum.

Sanders maintained that the administration is "enforcing the law," prompting Karem to interject as Sanders attempted to call on another reporter.

"You're a parent, don't you have any empathy for what these people are going through?" Karem, the executive editor of the Prince Georges and Montgomery Sentinel newspapers in Maryland, said.

Sanders told Karem she would not respond to the question because he was talking out of turn.

"They have less than you do. Seriously," Karem responded, visibly upset.

"I know you want more TV time, but," Sanders began, before Karem again interrupted, telling her "it's not about that."

Karem continued to call out to Sanders while the press secretary attempted to call on Associated Press reporter Jill Colvin.

"Jill, go ahead," she said repeatedly, as Karem continued to talk.

Colvin eventually was able to ask her question when Karem stopped trying to get Sanders' attention.

Watch the testy exchange above.


Sanders also got involved in a tense back-and-forth with CNN reporter Jim Acosta on the subject:
