White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders gave a scorching rebuke to “fake news” CNN’s Jim Acosta on Wednesday. The firebrand daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and the liberal media darling Acosta regularly exchange heated words on the floor of the White House press room. However, Wednesday was truly something special…
From BizPac Review:
The briefing followed an unprecedented move by President Trump who allowed the press to attend nearly an hour of a bipartisan meeting at the White House discussing immigration. Nearly a dozen Republican and Democrat members of Congress negotiated immigration reform, border security and related issues as reporters were allowed to observe and film what would normally be a closed-door meeting.
In the press briefing that followed, Acosta asked if the “wall has to be part of a deal” in border security, to which Sanders responded that border security “has to be part of the process,” although it “doesn’t necessarily mean a physical wall.”
“You understand Democrats are saying they may not be in favor of this kind of deal?” he asked, setting up Sanders for the final blow.
“If Democrats aren’t in favor of protecting American citizens, I think we have hit a sad day in American history,” she fired back. “But I don’t believe that to be the case. Because as many of them say as they sat around the table when several of you were in the room, they are committed to border security, they do want it, and most of them voted for it previously before this legislation hit the floor.”
But predictably, the unstable Acosta just wouldn’t let it go.
Sarah Sanders, ever the adult in the room and quick on her feet, finally shut him down, adding: “Jim I’m not negotiating with you. I’ll let Congress take care of that.”
And that’s just all there was to it! Mr. Acosta is certainly feeling his oats after being promoted to CNN’s chief White House correspondent. From that dubious perch, he will assuredly peddle his relentless and unfounded criticisms of the president.
Mrs. Sanders will continue to rely on her professionalism and patience.
What do you think of the terrific job that’s Sarah’s doing for President Trump?
Do you believe anything you see on CNN these days?
