White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee just royally embarrassed CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Jim Acosta is constantly questioning the press secretary from an obviously liberal standpoint every time she makes an announcement. Recently Sarah Huckabee spoke in President Trump’s decision to deny the democrats DACA proposal and move forward with his border security reform. Of course this meant that Acosta would inevitably speak up with a negative line of questioning in which he had the nerve to say that the democrats aren’t in favor of protecting Americans in this manner. Huckabee was quick to respond and her brutal response left the conference in a shocked silence.
During the press briefing, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders if the “wall has to be part of a deal” when it comes to border security. Sanders’s response was epic. She shot back that border security “has to be part of the process,” while it “doesn’t necessarily mean a physical wall.”
Acosta kept on running his mouth, as per usual. He went on, “You understand Democrats are saying they may not be in favor of this kind of deal?”
Sanders didn’t hesitate when she answered, “If Democrats aren’t in favor of protecting American citizens, I think we have hit a sad day in American history. But I don’t believe that to be the case. Because as many of them say as they sat around the table when several of you were in the room, they are committed to border security, they do want it, and most of them voted for it previously before this legislation hit the floor.”
