For the second time in a Sunday morning interview, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus got testy with a reporter.

CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson asked Priebus in various ways if the Trump administration was running a “little ragged on certain issues.” Priebus responded every time by blaming the press for overhyping any disconnect between lawmakers and executive office.

“So in every answer you have turned it back to the media. So I guess the question is, is the strategy now to answer any question by just turning it back on the media and using a fight with the media as a way to try to control the storyline?” Dickerson asked.

“John, the last few questions you asked make no sense. I mean, you are talking about people that you are not naming and whether or not some things that need to be improved, and what would you say to some people that say some things,” Priebus said.

“What things? What people? What are you referring to?” Priebus added. “Give me a specific question with a specific accusation and I will answer the question. But you are asking me a vague question without any specifics and you want me to give you a specific answer. It is ridiculous.”

Priebus’ CBS interview was pretaped, but the former Republican National Committee chairman also lashed out at Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday, telling him he was “going bananas” over an issue.
