Reporter's dramatic eye roll in response to competitor's question

A reporter has been caught on live television dramatically rolling her eyes at a fellow journalist's question.

As the detailed question from Zhang Huijun (in the red suit) drags on, Liang Xiangyi (in the blue suit) rolls her eyes multiple times.

After a viewer posted the footage to Twitter, it quickly went viral.

Ms Xiangyi said she was rolling her eyes because Ms Huijin, a state news reporter, is an "idiot" and her question was "even longer than the answer".

The question is almost 40 seconds long.
