CNN’s resident Fake News “reporter” Jim Acosta is upset because he says his press credentials were threatened.
Acosta tweeted today that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee threatened to remove his press pass if he continued to “shout” questions at President Trump.
Acosta has been known to have emotional “fits” during White House briefings which can be extremely disruptive os we say, SMART MOVE on Sarah’s part.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders threatened to curtail his media access if he shouted a question at President Trump.
Acosta ignored the alleged warning, using a “pool spray” Tuesday at the White House to ask Trump about a tweet he sent out earlier in the day about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.
“President Trump ignores a question from @Acosta on what the president meant when he tweeted that Sen. Gillibrand would do anything for a campaign contribution,” CNN Allie Malloy tweeted after reporters were let in a room at the White House to sign a bill funding the military.
Acosta replied to the tweet, “Prior to this moment [sic], @presssec issued a warning to me. 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.”

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.
Acosta’s question to the president was related to a tweeted Trump sent out earlier in the day, accusing Gillibrand, who has called for his resignation, of “begging” him for political donations. He added a parenthetical to the tweet that said Gillibrand “would do anything for” the donations.
