CNN SNOWFLAKE: Acosta Whines About 'UN-AMERICAN' Treatment from Sarah Sanders

CNN's Jim Acosta, who has become a lightning rod for anti-media sentiment and was loudly heckled during a Trump rally in Florida on Tuesday night, implored Sanders to break from the president, who first decried the press as the "enemy of the American people" past year. After all: Media organizations and their various commentators, analysts and hangers-on have no doubt said unfortunate things about Trump, his followers, the White House and so on.

Coats also said: "The intelligence community continues to be concerned about the threats of upcoming us elections, both the midterms and the presidential elections of 2020".

Basically: The White House thinks that journalists are the enemy of the people. "I mean, she got yelled at in a restaurant in Virginia".

Later the same month the White House banned CNN correspondent Kaitland Collins from a press pool event because of question she had asked during a meeting between President Trump and EU Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker. She ought to hear some of the things that were said to me the other night in Tampa.

During an impromptu interview with reporters, Giuliani said that President Trump was just tweeting his opinions and that he hasn't fully researched if obstructing justice is a crime. "I think we deserve that", requested Acosta.

During the briefing, Sanders listed multiple instances in which she felt the press had personally wronged her, citing comedian Michelle Wolf's comments made about her during the White House Correspondent's Dinner in May.

I mention Sanders reading from her notes because it's a telling detail that she had something ready to go on this.

Sanders was asked several times Thursday whether she rejects the "enemy of the people" characterization.

Economic growth has been buoyed by the fiscal stimulus from the Trump administration's tax cuts and spending. As expected, the Federal Reserve's policymaking body chose to hold rates steady at its meeting today.

Acosta followed up to note Sanders didn't fulfill his request.

Instead, Sanders recited a litany of complaints against the press and blamed the media for inflaming tensions in the country. She didn't help her contention when she seized on a debunked story about the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

"We all get put through the ringer, we all get put through the meat-grinder in this town, and you're no exception and I'm sorry that happened to you", Acosta said. I wish that did not happen. "His own daughter acknowledges that and all I'm asking is you acknowledge that right here and right now".

"I know that the invitation has been extended, but I don't believe a final decision has been made", press secretary Sarah Sanders said in response to a question at the daily press briefing. I'm here to speak on behalf of the president.

"In the age of social media, where divisiveness serves no decent goal, these flippant comments on my part only made things worse and contributed to a cycle of rage that I should not have inflamed further".

According to his own tweet, Acosta walked out of the briefing room after not getting what he wanted. He was downright exasperated.

Right-wing pundits, including Sean Hannity and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, celebrated the incident, while those on the left celebrated the veteran CNN reporter as a hero of the anti-Trump "Resistance". With that answer, the president's daughter showed more independence and free thinking than the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

A sitting Republican senator, Jeff Flake of Arizona, started out 2018 by comparing Trump to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin over his attacks on the media.
