I have said it before, I’ll say it again. Why in the hell is the WH letting this Acosta idiot in the press room?
Today CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta demanded White House press secretary Sarah Sanders denounce the president’s “enemy of the people” rhetoric about the media.
Sanders responded by listing all of the ways that the media has attacked her during her time in the administration. She declined to say that the press is not the “enemy of the people.”
It’s ironic Jim that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country,” said Sanders. “The media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions… said that I should be harassed, that I should be choked.”
“When I was hosted by the correspondence association you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own gender,” she added.
Acosta decided to make the people sorry for him!
He was speaking with another CNN journalist after President Trump referred to the press as the “enemies” of the American people, saying “he was getting tired” of the administration’s attacks on the mainstream media.
“Honestly Brooke, I’m tired of this …. It is not right, it is not fair, it is not just, it is un-American to come out here and call the press the enemy of the people,” said Acosta.

The Free Press is this free now as they ever were. Otherwise, Jim Acosta would be in jail. But he’s not, he’s allowed to say anything he wants including outright lies which he does pretty much on a daily basis. He’s walking free because the press is free as it should be.
Do you think that CNN is reporting fake news about President Trump?
