CNN’s White House Activist Jim Acosta Begs Sarah Sanders to Name Which Outlets Are the ‘Enemy of the People’ (VIDEO)
CNN’s resident White House activist attempted to make a spectacle during the White House briefing once again, begging Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to name which journalists or publications President Donald Trump considers to be an “enemy of the people.”
Acosta must have been going through attention withdrawal since there hadn’t been an official briefing for him to cause a scene in since October 3.
“If the president is going to say the fake news media are the enemy of the people and if you’re going to stand there and continue to say there are some journalists and news outlets in this country that meet that characterization, shouldn’t you have the guts, Sarah, to state which outlets, which journalists are the enemy of the people?” Acosta asked during Monday’s briefing.
Sanders had explained that the president isn’t referring to all news outlets when he discusses fake news.
“I’m not going to go through a list — but I think those individuals probably know who they are,” Sanders said.
The whiny activist-reporter then demanded to know if that includes his outlet, and brought up the undetonated bomb that had been sent to CNN.
“I think it’s irresponsible of a news organization, like yours, to blame responsibility for a pipe bomb that was not sent by the president — not just blame the president, but blame members of his administration — for those heinous acts. I think that is outrageous and I think it’s irresponsible,” Sanders said.
Acosta continued to try and keep the spotlight on himself, but Sanders asserted that she had already given him three questions and was done responding to him.
