Sarah Sanders Acosta
CNN’s Jim Acosta engaged in a verbal argument with Donald Trump in early November 2018. As Jim was in the process of asking the president a question, an intern, at the direction of Trump, tried to take away his microphone. Acosta’s White House credentials were suspended later in the day, in a move which was then widely criticized as unprecedented.
Sarah released a video of the moment the intern tried to grab the microphone from Acosta’s hand. That video then originated from conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson of the far-right website Infowars, and was then allegedly altered to make Acosta seem aggressive and excluded him saying “Pardon me, ma’am” to the intern. Watson then denied that the video was doctored in any way.
Sarah Sanders CNN
CNN Communications Executive called Sarah’s sharing of the video “shameful” and the White House News Photographers Association said they were “appalled” by her actions and called video-manipulation “deceptive, dangerous and unethical.” and also said that what Sanders did was “equally problematic.”
During the 2018-2019 government shutdown which was caused by Congress’s refusal to fulfill President Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in federal funds for a U.S.–Mexico border wall, Sarah argued that a border wall was necessary. She claimed that the CBP stopped nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists when they crossed the Mexico border in 2018.
Data obtained by NBC News contradicted Sarah’s assertion, showing that only six immigrants on the No Fly List (also known as the terror watch list) were encountered at the ports of entry on the Mexico border. In an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News, Chris countered her claim of nearly 4,000 terrorists, saying “I know the statistic. I didn’t know if you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people come—where they are captured? Airports.”
