A legal objection raised when a lawyer asks a question of a witness that does not seek a direct answer but rather challenges the credibility or truthfulness of the witness. Most courts do not allow this type of question. Questions that are argumentative usually have a sarcastic character and are insincere. It is more often then not provoked for the entertainment of the jury.
