White House press secretary Sarah Sanders used Twitter to troll Jim Acosta with some history after the CNN White House correspondent accused a Daily Caller reporter of asking “softball questions” at a presidential press conference Tuesday.
“Dear Diary…#BestWeekEver,” Sanders wrote.
The clip, originally tweeted by The Blaze’s Jason Howerton, at first showed Acosta criticizing the questions that Daily Caller White House Correspondent Saagar Enjeti asked President Donald Trump. But instead of stopping there, it provided a flashback to questions that Acosta asked former President Barack Obama, including queries about his “best week ever” and “what hard things” he wanted “to tackle” at that point.
“The question was asked in a way that really teed it up like a game of tee-ball here in the Rose Garden,” Acosta said of Enjeti’s question. “The president was just sort of served up a softball there when he was asked whether or not the Democrats are advancing a lot of socialist ideas.”
