CNN’s Jim Acosta busts Sarah Sanders for drinking and schmoozing with the reporters she attacks from the White House podium

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has always had an adversarial relationship with reporters. She has accused journalists of being predominantly against the administration and divisive to the country, and has steadfastly defended President Donald Trump as he trashes the press as “fake news” and the “enemy of the people,” and has openly longed for the ability to sue them.

Behind the scenes, however, her relationship with some of the reporters she trashes in press conferences might be more collegial.

That’s according to CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, whose new book, The Enemy of the People, alleges that Sanders routinely met reporters for drinks and that she could “throw back her Maker’s and Coke with the best of them.”

Acosta and Sanders have clashed very publicly, with the most notable incident occurring last year when Sanders revoked Acosta’s “hard pass” to the White House and claimed he had placed his hands on a White House intern. Reporters subsequently accused Sanders of lying about the incident and spreading manipulated footage to back up her story, and a federal judge appointed by Trump swiftly ordered Sanders to restore Acosta’s credentials.

Acosta notes in his book that Sanders’ accusation against him was a “disgusting smear” and says that “everything in my life began to spiral out of control” after the incident.

"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."

LGBTQ pride ‘forces’ people to accept ‘a perverted and non-biblical view of sexuality’: West Virginia Republican

Published

on

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
