CNN's Acosta Won't Let 'Enemy of the People' Go

Osama Bin Laden

"The people that are in this room, this democracy, this country... the president of the United States should not refer to us as the enemy of the people ... all I'm asking you to do, Sarah, is to acknowledge that".

"True to form, the president who thinks you need ID to buy groceries also thinks that voters are demanding more tax cuts for rich people", he said, "because the Trump administration is putting together a plan to do just that, this time without going through Congress". That day might be coming sooner than we think.

Sanders then said that it's "ironic" that Acosta and other media members attack President Trump's rhetoric when they in fact "lower the level of conversation" in the country.

Sanders, appearing to read from prepared remarks, responded with a critique of the press for resorting "to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger".

During the briefing, Sanders listed multiple instances in which she felt the press had personally wronged her, citing comedian Michelle Wolf's comments made about her during the White House Correspondent's Dinner in May. "The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration".

Coats also said that while Russian Federation is continuing to interfere in the USA, other countries also have "an interest in trying to influence our domestic political environment".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on February 12.

"After each live shot, @Acosta would walk down and politely talk to the people who just heckled him", tweeted WFTV Orlando reporter Christopher Heath. I have some sensitivity around why people have concerns and gripe, especially when they sort of feel targeted. In a tweet last month following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump said the media had mischaracterized the summit.

Watch the exchange above.

In addition to calling the press the "enemy of the people" and "really bad people" who peddle "fake news", Trump himself has attacked the physical appearance of numerous journalists, including MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, NBC's Megyn Kelly, and the New York Times' Serge Kovaleski.

She said the president was "glad this efforts was delayed" so he can review the material. "We all get put in the meat grinder in this town and you're no exception", Acosta said.

American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan posted an Instagram video afterward, declaring: 'Many in the media are very upset after this briefing'. That may not be news in Washington, D.C., but I can assure you that it's news in the state of Florida...
