A CNN reporter used a bit of heated language on Monday when asking President Obama about the U.S. strategy to defeat ISIS.

“I guess the question is – if you’ll forgive the language – why can’t we take out these bastards?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked.

Obama appeared frustrated with the question, and responded that he’d “just spent the last three questions answering that very question, so I don’t know what more you want me to add.”

Watch the question, captured by TPM:
