White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday refused to say the media is not the enemy of the people in an extraordinary exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta, who has been at the center of a firestorm over President Trump and the press.
Sanders during the back and forth at the White House press briefing read off a laundry list of media reports she cited as unfair or misleading, calling the president’s repeated attacks on the press “completely understandable.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I think the president has made his position known,” Sanders said, before turning her attention to Acosta in particular. “It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country.”
Sanders blamed the media for personally attacking her and cited the controversy from the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, where comedian Michelle Wolf drew criticism from conservatives and some journalists for mocking Sanders’s appearance.
“You brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own gender,” Sanders said.
“You did not say in the course of those remarks that you just made that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta responded, before expressing compassion over how Sanders has been treated at times.
