Sarah Huckabee Sanders is Holding Down The House

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a bad ass. 

Tuesday afternoon, the White House Press Secretary fielded questions from reporters on climate change, immigration, and a question from CNN's top troublemaker, Jim Acosta.

Acosta made his return to the James S. Brady room a full 20 days after he was temporarily banned from the White House.

Sanders eventually called on Acosta, who asked if President Trump would recommend that Paul Manafort should cooperate with authorities going forward.

The questioning grew tenser as Acosta then asked why Trump doesn’t have faith in his advisers, citing the President's apparent skepticism toward a major government climate change study and the CIA's findings regarding Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's role in activist Jamal Khashoggi's killing.

Sanders shot back, “That’s not accurate,” as the CNN reporter listed a series of examples. He continued to ask the question but was met with pushback from Sanders.
