Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sparred with CNN’s Jim Acosta during Thursday’s press briefing after Acosta brought up claims about President Trump using his executive time to watch “Fox & Friends.”
President Trump had changed his position in a tweet after government surveillance and FISA, apparently in response to a segment on the morning show, prompting the questions from Acosta.
“I’m sure you are disappointed he’s not watching CNN,” the press secretary quipped.
“I think he watches a lot of CNN if you don’t mind me saying it,” Acosta fired back.
“I don’t think that’s true,” Sanders said. “Your numbers would be higher.”
This led to a bunch of “ooohs” from reporters in the room.
