Kirsters Baish| White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is always up to kick some serious reporter butt when they show her disrespect during press briefings. It seems like CNN’s Jim Acosta is always trying to get under Sanders’s skin, and this week was no different. During yesterday’s press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders invited two United States military veterans to sit up front. She was trying to let them speak when Acosta began screaming over them and completely ruined the entire moment.
Sanders’s quick response to Acosta’s rude behavior went viral on the internet and totally embarrassed the liberal reporter.
Sargent Peck and Staff Sargent Dwyer were both seriously injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sargent Dwyer was struck with a traumatic brain injury. He rehabilitated himself and re-enlisted to serve one more tour during which he suffered from another injury during an explosion.
It shouldn’t have surprised anyone when CNN reporter Jim Acosta made it about himself, as per usual. While Sanders tried to let the veterans speak, Acosta screamed out, “Hey, Sarah! This is the third briefing you’ve not taken a question from CNN!”
It wasn’t just Sanders who was annoyed by Acosta’s outburst. Other reporters can be heard saying, “Let them speak… Let them speak..”
Sargent Dwyer and Staff Sargent Peck were both extremely uncomfortable by Acosta’s outburst and felt it best to just leave with Sarah when she walked out. That wasn’t it, either. Acosta continued the whining on Twitter. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a great response though.
She fired back with this brutal response, and it’s going viral.
