The White House Press Secretary has responded to the ridiculous lawsuit CNN has filed against the president:
This is a good statement from the White House on the issue.
I like how they have amended their previous claim and said in this press release “he physically refused to surrender a White House microphone to an intern…” That’s far better than accusing Acosta of assaulting the intern, which never happened in the first place.
And they are right to suggest that they can’t run an orderly and fair press conference when you have Acosta trying to bully the president while grandstanding on an issue. There needs to be a check on this kind of behavior, as the statement suggests.
