After CNN Filed Lawsuit Against Her For Revoking Jim Acosta’s Press Credentials, Sarah Huckabee Embarrassed Them

As you’ve probably heard, CNN has filed a lawsuit against President Trump, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, and several other aides after they revoked Jim Acosta’s access to the White House.

CNN claims their actions violate his “constitutional rights” and seeks the immediate restoration of his credentials. Well, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders just issued a brutal response. (Video Below)

Here’s what she said.

“We have been advised that CNN has filed a complaint challenging the suspension of Jim Acosta’s hard pass. This is just more grandstanding from CNN, and we will vigorously defend against this lawsuit.

CNN, who has nearly 50 additional hard pass holders, and Mr. Acosta is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment. After Mr. Acosta asked the President two questions — each of which the President answered — he physically refused to surrender a White House microphone to an intern, so that other reporters might ask their questions. This was not the first time this reporter has inappropriately refused to yield to other reporters.

The White House cannot run an orderly and fair press conference when a reporter acts this way, which is neither appropriate nor professional. The First Amendment is not served when a single reporter, of more than 150 present, attempts to monopolize the floor. If there is no check on this type of behavior it impedes the ability of the President, the White House staff, and members of the media to conduct business.”

YES! This is the truth. Jim Acosta wants to be treated like a reporter but he acts like a petulant child so he’s lost all respect.

Ari Fleischer, former Press Secretary under George W. Bush, also came out and exposed CNN’s pathetic lawsuit.


Fleischer also pointed out that Acosta actually still has access to the White House, he just has to get a day-pass like any other reporter would. He just no longer has unlimited access. Hardly a violation of his “rights.”

Spread this story everywhere so we can get the truth out.
