Ouch! CNN’s Jim Acosta Gets Smart at WH Presser – Mick Mulvaney Takes Him to School (VIDEO)
The Trump White House today held a presser before the US Senate vote on the continuing resolution to fund government.
During the presser on the “Schumer Shutdown” CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to get smart with White House Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney.
Mulvaney took him to school.
Jim Acosta: At the comments beginning this you said it was the Schumer shutdown. How could it be the Schumer Shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate?
Mick Mulvaney: Come on. You know the answer to that as well as anybody. I have to laugh when people say that. ‘Oh we control the House, the Senate, the White House, why can’t you get this done?’ You know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass an appropriations bill. Right? You know that?
Jim Acosta: I know that.
Mick Mulvaney: So when you only have 51 votes in the senate you have to have Democrat support in order to keep the government to fund the government. So that’s the answer to your question.
