Jim Acosta did it again today at the White House Press briefing. He rudely interrupted Sarah Sanders a few times with a dumb question about if the media is the enemy of the people.
After he stopped being rude Sarah silenced him…notice in the video below how her voice wavers with emotion as she recounts what has happened to her…
Sarah answered Acosta with,
“I politely waited for you after you interrupted me…it’s ironic Jim that you attack the media for his rhetoric when you repeatedly resort to personal attacks
The media has attacked me personally including CNN who said that I should be harassed – a lifetime sentence
That I should be choked and
You brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to me gender
The first press secretary in the history of the United States that requires secret service protection
The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the pres and everyone in this administration and certainly, we have a role to play but the media has a role to play for the discourse in this country as well.”
Jim then did the unthinkable and actually apologized to Sarah…
CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders if she, like the President has said multiple times, believed that the press was in fact the “enemy of the people.”
She wouldn’t say if she agreed with him, but she wouldn’t say that she didn’t.
Instead, Sanders said, “I appreciate your passion. I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the president. He’s made his comments clear.”
