Sarah Huckabee Sanders body-slammed CNN’s Jim Acosta as he attempted to go into one of his twisted rants during the White House press briefing. Acosta asked, “Why did the President tweet this morning that he’d like to see the Senate Intelligence Committee investigate news outlets, in I guess this quest to go after fake news?”
In getting to the mandatory snarky, condescending attack portion of his question, Acosta asks, “Does he value the First Amendment as much as he values the Second Amendment?”
Sanders replied, “Absolutely, the President is an incredible advocate of the First Amendment, with those freedoms, also come responsibilities and you have a responsibility to tell the truth, to be accurate.”
She says, “I think right now when we’ve seen recent information that says only 5% of media coverage has been positive about this President and this administration while at the same time you have the stock market and economic confidence at an all-time high, ISIS is on the run, unemployment is at the lowest it’s been in 17 years, we’ve cut regulations at a historic pace, we’re fixing the VA for our Vets.”
Sanders notes, “You’ve only found 5% of your time to focus on some of those big issues and frankly, those are the issues most Americans care about. Not a lot of the things that you cover, not a lot of the petty palace intrigue that you spend your time on.”
Says, “I think that we need to move towards, a certainly, more fair, more accurate and frankly a more responsible news media for the American people.”
Acosta, who President Trump has nicknamed “Fake News,” attempts to get another question in asking whether Congress should investigate news outlets. Sanders doesn’t take the bait, reminding him he had his turn and calling on someone else. Are you nervous Jimmy? Don’t want to have to tell the truth in hearings or are you just not sure you know how?
