Sarah Sanders promotes an altered video of CNN reporter
Nov 11, 2018, 09:12
On Friday morning, while leaving the White House to head to Paris, Trump spoke with reporters, making it clear that moods had not cooled since Wednesday's press conference.
President Donald Trumpsaid Friday that he might revoke the credentials of additional White House reporters if they do not "treat the White House with respect", lobbing another threat at the news media two days after his administration effectively blacklisted CNN correspondent Jim Acosta. "I don't think he's a smart person but he has a loud voice", Trump told reporters in a testy 20-plus-minute exchange before he left for Paris and a World War I commemoration ceremony. "I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser, she doesn't know what the hell she's doing. But she's very nasty, and she shouldn't be".
Trump responded to those criticisms by incorrectly claiming that the special counsel Mueller had never been confirmed.
The White House News Photographers Association decried the sharing of the footage.
Although President Trump has already derided the media as an "enemy" of the American people, he directed his Wednesday comments specifically at Acosta.
On several occasions Trump could be seen shushing, interrupting the reporter.
The White House video, apparently made by a contributor to the conspiracy-peddling website Infowars, speeds up the movement of Acosta's arms as the unidentified aide grabs at the mic during a heated conversation between the reporter and Trump. Not only was Acosta's behavior toward the young intern objectionable, but, similarly, his constant mistreatment of the President and his Press Secretary is completely unacceptable. The video proved otherwise.
It's no secret that the president and CNN reporter Jim Acosta have an especially adversarial relationship. And Trump warned Friday that other reporters could have their security badges revoked, too. But then he said, "I don't hold him for that because it wasn't overly, you know, horrible".
Most news organizations are standing behind Acosta. Acosta stood back up and noted the explosive devices that were recently sent to CNN and some of the president's political opponents.
A number of prominent journalism advocacy groups have come to Acosta's defense and called for an immediate restoration of his press pass.
During the gaggle in front of the White House, Trump continued to criticize reporters and went after another reporter of color. Alice Allison Dunnigan was the first African-American to serve as White House correspondent, which she gained access to in 1947. And he has spared some reporters of color, such as Fox News White House correspondent Kevin Corke, who is black. "Obviously, I didn't put my hands on her or touch her as they're alleging". (She asked whether describing himself as a "nationalist" on the campaign trail emboldened white nationalists.) And while talking with reporters today, Trump went after Phillip, who asked whether he wanted acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker "to rein in Robert Mueller" in regards to the Russian Federation probe. While appearing in a Mother's Day interview this year, Sanders suggested dealing with Acosta was like dealing with her children: they both whined and repeatedly asked the same questions. "What a stupid question and I watch you a lot and you ask a lot of stupid questions".
CNN's Dana Bash tweeted this reaction: "Harvard University will be surprised to hear POTUS call one of their graduates - my friend and colleague Abby Phillip - stupid".
At one point in the news conference, Jim Acosta of CNN refused to relinquish the microphone and badgered the President with additional questions.
