President Donald Trump ripped CNN’s Jim Acosta for being “very unprofessional” Friday, saying that the way he treats Sarah Sanders is a “disgrace.”
You have to treat the White House with respect, you have to treat the presidency with respect.
These comments come after a very contentious week between the White House and Jim Acosta.
The CNN reporter had his press pass revoked by the White House Wednesday after he asked multiple questions during a press conference and refused to give the microphone back to a female aide who was trying to retrieve it from him.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that the White House would “never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”
