CNN’s professional Trump-hater Jim Acosta had another showdown with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Acosta badgered Sanders into trying to get her to criticize Donald Trump.
But how Sanders responded will leave you speechless.
Acosta pressed Sanders to criticize Donald Trump for calling the fake news media the enemy of the people.
Sanders refused to fall into Acosta’s trap.
Acosta planted the gotcha question in hopes Sanders would take the bait and disagree with Trump so CNN could then fill their programming schedule with how even Trump’s own aides were turning on him.
Instead, Sanders pushed back hard and ticked off all the instances of fake news – some of which aired on CNN – as well as personal attacks and insults that the so-called “mainstream” silently approved.
Sanders dropped the hammer on Acosta stating
“Repeatedly, the media has attacked me personally, on a number of occasions including your own network. Said I should be harassed as a life sentence. That I should be choked. ICE officials are not welcome in their place of worship and personal information is shared on the Internet. When I was hosted by the Correspondents Association, of which almost all of you are members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and call me a traitor to my own gender. In fact, as far as I know, I’m the first press secretary in the history of the United States that required Secret Service protection.”
Appearing on CNN after the briefing Acosta- being the triggered liberal snowflake that he is – melted down.
Acosta whined “I’m tired of this. 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. And Ivanka Trump knows that. I don’t know why her father doesn’t. And I don’t know why this Press Secretary doesn’t.”
The Trump-hating CNN reporter then addressed Sanders specific allegations of the press tolerating liberal activists terrorizing herself and other Trump officials.
“She got yelled at a restaurant in Virginia. I’m sorry about that. I feel badly for her that that happened. And that a comedienne at a Correspondents Dinner said some unpleasant things about her. I’m sorry about that. She outta hear some of the things that were said to me the other night in Tampa. She outta read some of the things that are read about my colleagues on CNN on a regular basis. It would be nice if we could all lower the temperature a little bit. But at the very least we should all be able to agree on one thing it’s that the media is not the enemy of the people.”
President Trump addressed this media-generated controversy by noting that Ivanka said all the media are now the enemy of the people.
President Trump has never contended that point.
Trump tweeted that only the fake news media is the enemy of the people:
They asked my daughter Ivanka whether or not the media is the enemy of the people. She correctly said no. It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!
Liberal journalists are panicking because Trump has exposed them as nothing more than liberal activists who see their job as presenting the facts in the manner that most benefits the Democrat Party.
Trump stripped away their power by forcing them to reveal themselves as demented conspiracy theorists and partisan lunatics.
Anti-Trump activists masquerading as journalists at outlets like CNN have spent 18 months promoting a baseless theory that the President committed treason by colluding with the Russians to steal the 2016 election.
It’s fake news designed to undermine confidence in America’s democratic institutions.
And Trump supporters believe the misinformation and lies about collusion with Russia are one part of a silent coup to nullify the results of the 2016 election.
The media’s whining about being called the enemy of the people because they “seek to hold power accountable” would be believable if the press hadn’t taken an eight-year vacation during the Obama Presidency.
Do you agree with President Trump that the fake news media is the enemy of the people?
