CNN’s Jim Acosta claps back at Sarah Sanders for ‘twisting his words’ in tweet

Published

CNN’s Jim Acosta is not afraid to put President Donald Trump’s administration in their place. On Thursday, he quickly responded to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter after she twisted his reporting.

Acosta is on the US-Mexico border reporting on Trump’s visit and the ongoing government shutdown. Trump has continually said that a wall is critical because there is a “crisis” at the border.

“I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today,” Acosta Tweeted.

 

Sanders responded by tweeting, “When I went with President @realDonaldTrump to the border today I never imagined @Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim!”

Acosta clapped backed by reminding Sanders of the time she edited a video in an attempt to falsely accuse him of harming a White House intern.

“While I’m glad she didn’t doctor this video, unfortunately, @PressSec is twisting the truth again. As we have been reporting today there are other sections of the border that don’t have walls or slats. Yet, the residents here feel safe,” he said.

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.

According to the report, the whistleblower became aware that the president made a "promise" to this unspecified foreign leader, and was so disturbed by the nature of that promise that he or she filed a complaint through channels set up to help whistleblower claims involving classified information.

White supremacists are making a list to track Jews critical of them

Published

on

The next step of the white supremacist attack on the United States is creating a list of Jewish people.

Mother Jones reported the story Wednesday that any Jews who complain about white nationalists are listed and tracked by a fast-growing group on the app Telegram.

An anonymous activist created a list of 367 Telegram channels that he or she posted on PrivateBin last week, as the app is quickly becoming a welcoming place for those who've been shut out of other apps, social media or websites.
