White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has had just about enough of Jim Acosta – a self-sufficient and narcissistic media reporter who believes he’s on top of the world.
Acosta recently told the public and his faithful supporters that Sarah Sanders warned him she would remove him from upcoming photo ops with Trump if he dared to start asking questions in the middle of a bill signing ceremony.
Sanders was clear when she noted that she didn’t want Acosta interrupting the event by asking questions, and this seems to be a stance she stands her ground about.
Acosta didn’t even pay attention to this, and he asked the President a question that he ignored. As the CNN reporter told Wolf Blitzer, he was done being threatened.
Acosta wrote about the happening on Twitter.
“Prior to this moment,
@presssec issued a warning to me,” Acosta wrote. “She said if I asked a question of Trump at the bill signing “I can’t promise you will be allowed into a pool spray again.” Sorry Sarah.. we won’t be intimidated.”
What Acosta asked Trump about was Trump’s Tuesday tweet where the President went after Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

Acosta’s effort to disobey Trump was a reoccurring event, which ended Monday as Sanders talked over him as he tried to interrupt her.
“I’m not finished,” Sanders hissed.

It is now up to Sanders to handle Acosta as she sees fit, and truth be told, he kinda deserves it.
