Was Matthew Whitaker disrespectful in his Congressional hearing?

With days left before the Senate votes to confirm his successor William Barr, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was called in to answer questions from the House Judiciary Committee. Whitaker was asked about topics ranging from forced family separations at to the border to the continuation of the Mueller investigation. Yet Whitaker seemed at best dismissive and at worst downright disrespectful. Some could argue he answered the questions in a professional manner. What do you think?

When presented with an intense line of questioning about forced family separations at the southern border from Representative Pramila Jayapal, Whitaker refused to acknowledge the seriousness of the ongoing situation.

Whitaker even went so far as to inform Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler that his allotted time had expired, causing gasps to fill the chamber.

#StoicWhitaker

He did technically respond to the questions, after some pushing. Well, a lot of pushing. But he answered. He should get some points for that?

#StoicWhitaker

Again, he dodged and obfuscated but eventually does answer the question honestly.
