Sarah Sanders Hits Jim Acosta With Brutal Truth About Hateful Media
President Trump, for the most part, has selected great people to work in his Administration. One of the best by far, is White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Her recent jaw-dropping exchange with intolerable CNN reporter Jim Acosta proves why.
On Thursday, Jim Acosta used the daily White House press briefing to try and force Sarah Sanders to defend the media. Acosta is upset because he always acts like a jerk towards the President and therefore gets treated like a jerk.
He is boisterous, obnoxious, disrespectful, and a liberal media hack. And that’s being kind. The fact he works for CNN, only makes it worse. Jim Acosta is the epitome of everything that’s wrong about mainstream media today.
That, among many other reasons, is why President Trump refers to the press as the “enemy of the people.” That label is also what lead to the exchange between Jim Acosta and Sarah Sanders. He wanted, almost demanded, that Sanders defy the President’s remarks.
“You read off a laundry list of your concerns about the press and what things you feel like are misreported but you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said. “I think it would be a good thing if you were to say right here at this briefing that the press … are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”
Oh please. What they deserve, at least most of them, is a swift kick back to journalism school to learn some ethics. That or a pink-slip, either one sounds good to us. Thankfully, Sanders stood firm and hit little Jimmy with the brutal truth.
