FIREWORKS: President Trump EJECTS CNN's Jim Acosta from Press Briefing

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.18

President Donald Trump didn’t have time for CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday, telling the left-leaning reporter to “get out” during a press briefing with the President of Kazakhstan.

The President was fielding questions from journalists when Acosta pounced on his recent remarks regarding immigration; asking the Commander-in-Chief if he only prefers “Caucasian” and “white” immigrants from Norway other European nations.

“Mr. President, did you say that you wanted more people to come in from Norway? Is that true?” pressed the CNN reporter.

“I want them to come in from everywhere,” fired back the President.

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir?” asked Acosta.

“Out,” replied the President, shutting down Acosta and pointing at the door.

The CNN reporter commented on the altercation on social media, saying he had “never encountered” that sort of behavior at the White House.

“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before,” tweeted the correspondent.

CNN SNOWFLAKE: Jim Acosta WHINES White House ‘DROWNING OUT’ His Voice

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.18

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta publicly bemoaned his treatment by White House officials on social media Tuesday, complaining that press aides “shouted in his face” and that it was behavior one “would see in a different country.”

The fierce opponent of President Trump vented his frustrations on twitter this week, whining that he “has never encountered” this sort of resistance from White House officials and that it “certainly” not something one would see in the United States.

“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before… What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.,” Acosta tweeted.

The CNN correspondent routinely feuds with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other Trump officials –including the President himself. Last week, Huckabee Sanders mocked Acosta to his face during a daily press briefing, saying the reporter’s numbers “would be higher” if President Trump watched CNN.
