PRESS SEC: CNN ‘Disgusting,’ Acosta Suspended Until Further Notice

President Donald J. Trump’s Press Secretary launched into a Twitter tirade about the completely unprofessional actions of CNN reporter Jim Acosta at Wednesday’s White House press briefing.

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern…,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders Tweeted.

In a thread of five Tweets she berated CNN for for applauding the way Acosta handled the situation, calling the network “disgusting” and asserting that it has “outrageous disregard” for other members of the press and White House staffers.

She also re-affirmed the Trump administration’s commitment to the freedom of the press, noting that Trump fielded 68 questions from 35 reporters Wednesday, and bashed CNN for framing Acosta’s suspension as an attack on press freedom.

At then end of the thread, she dropped a bombshell.

“As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice,” she said.

Liberals are crying foul, saying that Acosta never put his hands on the female intern. He did. Watch it here:
