During a recent White House press conference, CNN‘s Jim Acosta accosted Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about President Trump’s recent rhetoric concerning the dishonest nature of the mainstream media. But she was having none of it.
In the following video clip posted to REAL.video, Sanders fires back at Acosta not only for spreading fake news about the Trump administration, but also for setting the bar for civil discourse so low that we now have violent Antifa terrorists roaming the streets destroying property and harming people in the name of “resisting” the President.
The clip, taken from Info Wars News, begins with Acosta asking Sanders about statements both she and the President have made concerning the “press” being enemies of the American people.
“You read off a laundry list of your concerns about the press, and things that you feel like are misreported, but you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta states.
“And I think it would be a good thing if you were to say right here, at the briefing, that the press – the people who are gathered in this room right now, doing their jobs every day, asking questions of officials like the ones you brought forward earlier – are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”
Acosta’s intention, of course, was to paint Sanders into a corner and get her to relent on the fact that most members of the “press” are little more than tools of the deep state to spread propaganda. But she didn’t fall into this trap, and immediately put crybaby Acosta in his place.
“I think the President has made his position known. I also think it’s ironic…” Sanders begins to say, before being interrupted by Acosta.
“I’m trying to answer your question. I politely waited, and I even called on you, despite the fact that you interrupted me while calling on your colleague. I said it’s ironic…” she starts up, only to be interrupted against by Acosta.
“It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric, when they frequently lower the level of conservation in this country repeatedly. Repeatedly, the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger. The media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions, including your own network, and said I should be harassed as a life sentence, and that I should be choked. ICE officials are not welcomed 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 called 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’s required Secret Service protection. The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the President and everyone in this administration, and certainly we have a role to play, but the media has a role to play for the discourse in this country as well.”
It’s about the best answer she could have given, and one that needs to be given over and over again until the liberal thought police get it through their thick skulls that Americans aren’t going to play Mr. Nice Guy anymore when it comes to mainstream media treason.
The days of Jim Acosta, CNN, and every other purveyor of fake news controlling the narrative are over. Americans can see right through the charade, and they’re not going to stand for it any longer.
