CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his press pass revoked temporarily after Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied and said he assaulted an intern.
Acosta said he was asking President Donald Trump questions about his racist caravan ad when the president grew irritated with his questions.
Acosta has been covering the White House for five years and never thought he’d see a day when he wouldn’t’ be able to ask a sitting president tough questions.
