CNN Says Sarah ‘Lied’ & Leftists Demand She ‘Resign’ Over Acosta, Made To Regret It

CNN’s Jim Acosta got his White House credentials revoked after he rudely pushed away a staffer at yesterday’s press conference. Now, the rabid leftists, encouraged by CNN’s statement claiming Sarah Huckabee Sanders “lied” about the incident, are out campaigning for her immediate resignation. They say she posted a “doctored video” which is ludicrous considering millions of Americans watched the incident live. Well, Sarah just made Acosta and his backers really regret it.

Jim Acosta’s removal from the White House press pool was long overdue. How many times did we see Acosta become belligerent towards Sarah Sanders? Many Americans kept waiting for the time it was finally enough, and that day was yesterday right in front of President Donald Trump.

By now, most people have seen the viral video of Acosta pushing away a female White House staffer after the president answered Acosta’s ridiculous questions. But, knowing a press conference led by the leader of the free world would be watched by millions around the world, the CNN rogue reporter couldn’t help himself.

Coveting the limelight, Acosta lost control when the president shut him down. Not wanting to give up the microphone, he was possessed, fixated on keeping the spotlight on himself. CNN should have fired him, but they too are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, so they are lying, saying this didn’t happen.

The revocation of Acosta’s pass “was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today’s press conference,” the CNN statement said. “In an explanation, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied. She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”

Excuse me? The incident never happened? This is a leftist trick straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” where he supports using Machiavellian tactics, which are the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct.

HuffPost helped with the attack on Sanders with an article titled, “People On Twitter Call For Sarah Huckabee Sanders To Resign For Jim Acosta Video.” You see, this is how they back each other up, making first false allegations and then using social media to make it appear people are outraged. It’s all fake.

So, what are the big “fraudulent accusations” Sanders cited? Well, she posted this Twitter video of the incident that was slowed down for maximum viewing. Sarah tweeted, “We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video.” But, there’s more.

HuffPost reports, “The video features CNN reporter Jim Acosta holding firm to a microphone while a White House intern attempts to take it from him. Sanders said in her tweets that Acosta ‘placed his hands’ on the intern and that his behavior was inappropriate.”

Then, they try to discredit Sarah, reporting, “The video Sanders posted was shared hours earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, a personality from Infowars. For the unfamiliar, Infowars is the Alex Jones-helmed outlet banned from many social media sites for abusive behavior.”

Then, they posted a tweet by a guy named Brian Beutler who works for “Crooked Media.” He tweeted, “The White House disseminated doctored footage, also disseminated by Infowars, to smear a reporter. This will sound quaint, and has been true for sometime, but Sarah Sanders needs to resign and should be unwelcome in public life.

I don’t care who posted the video, claiming it was “doctored” is ridiculous. It’s slowed down. That’s it. Yet, this again is another tactic. Discrediting pro-Trump sites is another added benefit. Sure, InfoWars had its issues, but why isn’t Media Matters off social media? They are the equivalent of InfoWars, but they are leftists.

Twitchy reports, “White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the brewing controversy that the video she tweeted out last night to defend the White House’s suspension of Jim Acosta’s hard pass was ‘doctored.’ From Sanders: ‘The question is: did the reporter make contact or not? The video is clear, he did. We stand by our statement.'”

CNN and their supporters are also trying to claim Acosta didn’t really push the staffer away. Most people don’t realize that assault and battery charges are when one touches another person with a rude or offensive intent. This goes for Washington, D.C., too. An assault in D.C. is defined as the threat or the use of force on another person that caused that person to have a reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful or offensive contact.

So, yes, if you look at the video closely, the staffer is taking the mic, and it’s Acosta who makes forceful physical contact. It’s important to point this out since CNN and their cohorts are on this campaign, claiming Sarah is lying and should resign, alleging Acosta did nothing wrong.

Americans need to be aware that, just like what the Democrats did with Justice Kavanaugh, they will also be attempting to discredit and ruin Trump’s most loyal administration members. We need to push back on these disgusting attempts to sully the good name of the press secretary.

With our support, good people like Sarah Sanders will know the majority of Americans love her and appreciate all she does for our president. If you support Sarah Sanders make sure you spread this information, and let the press secretary know you’re standing by her.
