Reporters criticized President Obama on Tuesday after he scolded a Washington Post reporter at a White House press conference for shouting out a question.

At the end of a joint press conference Tuesday in the Rose Garden with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama addressed the refugee crisis taking place in parts of Europe, and the surge of immigrants into the U.S.

After Obama wrapped up his comments on it, Post reporter David Nakamura called out a question regarding Central American migrants flooding into the United States. Obama answered and then sarcastically thanked Nakamura for the question.

“But I appreciate you shouting out a question since I’m sure there are a lot of other colleagues of yours who would want to do the same,” Obama said before exiting the garden. “Thank you very much, everybody. Appreciate it.”
