A Fox News reporter and President Trump’s spokeswoman traded biting barbs on Tuesday over the White House’s camera-free press briefings.

When FNC’s John Roberts, a critic of the no-camera policy, left the press briefing of Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she quipped: “John Roberts is bored today, he’s stepping out.”

The not-so-amused Roberts fired back: “If it (the press briefing) was on camera, I might not be.”

Roberts was stepping out to appear via satellite with FNC anchor Shepard Smith.

“To all who are musing over me leaving the @SHSanders45 Briefing … I have a live shot,”Roberts later tweeted.

“Had the brief been on camera, it would have been on TV, not me. I would have waited until it was over.”

The White House has barred cameras from its daily briefings since June 29.
