CNN’s Acosta Suggests Reporters ‘Stick Together’ to Protect Themselves From Sarah Cutting Them Off

Following a testy press briefing on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta took to Twitter to suggest reporters “stick together” to get answers from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she cuts them off:

The CNN correspondent’s suggestion came after he attempted to ask Sanders a follow-up question four times on Monday only to be shut down by the press secretary on each occasion. Acosta’s initial question was:

“Rudy Giuliani, the president’s outside lawyer, said to the Huffington Post, ‘In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted. […] If he shot James Comey, he’d be impeached the next day. Impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him.’ Is that appropriate language coming from the president’s outside lawyer to be talking about the president shooting Jim Comey in that fashion?”

Sanders replied, “You would have to ask Rudy Giuliani about his specific comments. But thankfully, the president hasn’t done anything wrong. We feel very comfortable in that.”

However, Acosta wasn’t satisfied and tried to follow up four times until Sanders eventually dismissed him with a simple, “Not today, Jim!”
