Social media erupted over the argument, airing out their dismay at Jean-Pierre's way of maneuvering around a question.

"Has she ever really answered anything? Seriously, I don't think so," one person wrote on Twitter, the platform recently renamed to X.

"I can’t even listen to this woman, anymore!!! I’m done," declared a second social media user, with a third tweeting, "She wasn't answering his question."

"'I tried to answer the question..' Come on KJP, when does asking a question answer a question," another pondered.

While the mother-of-one is used to having questions and criticism about the government hurled her way, earlier this month, White House Press Corps member Simon Ateba was scolded for asking her a personal inquiry.

Ateba was met with silence when he shouted at her as she left a September 15 press briefing, "Is your breakup affecting your job?"

Ateba has been in hot water before due to his constant interruptions and even received a warning.

"If you continue to impede briefings or events by shouting over your colleagues who have been called on for a question, even after you have been asked to stop by a White House employee, then your hard pass may be suspended or revoked, following notice and an opportunity to respond," the statement read.

Ateba's question came shortly after Jean-Pierre revealed to Vogue that she and longtime partner Suzanne Malveaux called it quits on their 10-year romance. They plan to share custody of their 9-year-old daughter, Soleil.

"I'm a single mom who is co-parenting this amazing kid," Jean-Pierre told the magazine. "Our number-one priority is her privacy and to make sure we create an environment that's nurturing."
