CNN’s Jim Acosta slammed Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ latest announcement that she will be running for Governor of Arkansas; saying the former Press Secretary “tried to ban” him from the White House.
“Cancel culture? She won? Sarah tried to ban me from the WH (using a doctored video) and lost in federal court. The Trump appointed federal judge wasn’t buying her lies. This campaign is going to be gaslit,” posted Acosta on Twitter following Sanders’ announcement.

“To remain free, we must have law and order and resolve our differences peacefully,” Sanders said in her announcement video. “The radical left’s solution is to impose government control and censorship from the top down.”
“As governor, I will defend your right to be free of socialism and tyranny, your Second Amendment right, your freedom of speech and religious liberty,” she added.

ACOSTA DENIED: Jim Acosta BOOTED from White House by Secret Service
CNN’s senior correspondent Jim Acosta was barred entry to the White House this week after a new secret service agent reportedly failed to recognize the reporter; telling him to retrieve his press pass before entering the premises.
The altercation was captured on video Wednesday, showing Acosta asking to be allowed entry to the White House as the Secret Service agent refused; eventually forcing the journalist to leave the area.
Acosta is no stranger when it comes to controversy regarding the President.
The CNN correspondent came under fire earlier this year after he publicly harassed the First Family during the annual White House Easter festivities.
