Jim Acosta just couldn’t help himself. He is all showboat and pulled his typical antics today when Sarah Sanders held a long overdue White House press briefing.
Sarah shut down Jim who tried one of his patented gotcha questions meant to get his mug on television rather than elicit information that the country could benefit from.
CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over President Donald Trump accusing the Democratic party hating Jewish people. His remarks came as House Democrats were writing a resolution in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) comments on dual loyalty.
“Isn’t that kind of rhetoric sort of beneath everybody? And do you think that the president has thought at all going into this 2020 campaign that the rhetoric needs to be lowered whether he is talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants or should we plan on hearing the president use the same kind of language we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple of years of this administration,” Acosta asked.
“I think that the real shame in all of this is that Democrats are perfectly capable of coming together and agreeing on the facts that they’re comfortable ripping babies from the mother’s womb or killing a baby after birth, but they have a hard time of condemning the type of comments of representative Omar,” Sanders said. “The president is clear on his position, certainly what his support for the people and the community of Israel.”
“I think that just sorts of drags down the rhetoric debate which you are saying that is patently untrue. Democrats don’t hate Jewish people. That’s just silly. It’s just not true,” Acosta replied.
“I think they should call out their members by name and we’ve made that clear,” Sanders said.
