At Thursday’s White House press briefing, Playboy reporter and CNN contributor Brian Karem got his hat handed to him when he began a question with this: “I profess my ignorance in this ….”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly jumped in with a sharp-witted reply that received audible gasps and laughter from the other members of the White House press corps. “You said it not me,” she said. “I mean, if you want to call yourself ignorant, I’m not going to argue.”

This wasn’t Karem’s first run-in with Sanders. Last month, I reported on the time he crossed the line by asking Sanders at the podium if she’d ever been sexually harassed.
