White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had little patience for CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday, shutting down the left-leaning journalist after he asked her if she believed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore “is a creep.”
Sanders was fielding questions from reporters during Thursday’s daily press briefing when Acosta pressed the Secretary over the White House’s opinion of embattled Republican Senate hopeful Roy Moore.
“On Roy Moore… Would the President campaign with Roy Moore?” asked Acosta
“Not that I’m aware of,” said Sanders.
“Can I ask you a follow up? Do you think he’s a creep?” he asked.
“Do I? Look, I don’t know Roy Moore. I haven’t met him in person so I won’t be able to respond to that,” she fired-back. “As I’ve said about seven or eight times now, the President believes this is a decision for the people of Alabama to make.”
