CNN’s Jim Acosta crossed a line that Donald Trump made him regret
President Trump held a news conference after the election results.
Reporters and members of the fake news media used it as an opportunity to take shots at the President.
That’s when CNN’s Jim Acosta crossed a line that he instantly regretted.
CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, began to ask President Trump about the immigrant caravan approaching the border – attempting to make the President appear racist.
Trump wasn’t having it.
Acosta incessantly interrupted Trump and the President slammed him with this line:
“Honestly? I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN. And if you did it well? Your ratings would be much better.”
But Acosta continued to grandstand.
When a young lady who worked for the White House tried to take the microphone from him, Acosta swatted her away.
That’s when Trump brought down the hammer.
“CNN should be ashamed of itself for having you work for them. You are a rude, terrible person… You’re a very rude person. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.”
Fox News reports:
CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass to access the White House was suspended “until further notice” Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump.
“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta tweeted Wednesday night. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta’s tweet in a statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” She called the behavior “absolutely unacceptable.”
The White House has officially pulled Acosta’s access to the White House over his pitiful behavior.
