White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took a break from the usual press pool Thursday night; trading blows with iconic ‘Rocky’ star Sylvester Stallone as he visited the White House to witness the posthumous pardoning of boxing champion Jack Johnson.
Stallone, who advocated for the pardon with President Trump, posed for a hilarious photo with Sanders just moments after the ceremony.

Johnson, the first African American heavyweight champion, was convicted by an all-white jury of “transporting” a caucasian female across state lines for “immoral purposes” in 1913.

'ANIMAL' RIGHTS: Southern Poverty Law Center SLAMS Trump’s MS-13 Remarks
The Southern Poverty Law Center slammed the Trump administration’s use of the term ‘animals’ when describing violent MS-13 gang members this week; saying it was “unacceptable” to use the “racist” and “dehumanizing language.”
The SPLC posted the complaint on social media just one day after the White House published an official report on the ‘Animals of MS-13’ on their official website, saying it was inappropriate to use the term ‘animal’ 10 times.
“It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America,” posted the SPLC.

The mainstream media went into a full-fledged frenzy last week after the President used the term to describe criminal gang members residing in US prisons; saying his administration will do “everything” it can to keep MS-13 out of the United States.
ACOSTA GOES GLOBAL: The CNN Reporter HUMILIATES HIMSELF at International Conference
CNN’s senior White House correspondent took his anti-Trump road show onto the international stage Thursday, following the Commander-in-Chief to Europe to harass the President over his “America First” foreign policy.
The President was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, touting his “America First” agenda while speaking with foreign leaders and business executives from the world’s largest corporations.
After Trump says of Davos “It’s been really successful…” I asked him how he can be America First if he’s rubbing elbows with big wigs. He did not respond. Video from @ElizLanders pic.twitter.com/jPWWRfTLir

“We want great prosperity, and we want great peace, and that really is the message. A lot of people are coming back to the United States for jobs, we’re seeing tremendous investment and today’s been a very exciting day,” said Trump while exiting the high-level meetings.
Acosta pounced within seconds, nonsensically asking Trump how he plans to advance his agenda while speaking with foreign leaders.
“Mr. President, can you be ‘America First’ but also be rubbing elbows with all these big wigs?” shouted Acosta as the President walked away.
