Sarah Sanders scorches CNN reporter during press briefing


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.
