Jimmy Kimmel Makes a Solid Case for Firing Sarah Huckabee Sanders

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room at the White House in Washington Wednesday Nov. 7 2018

"Predictably, President Trump lashed out at Mr. Acosta calling him rude and a bad person", he said.

Thursday night was a hectic night for late show hosts between the situation with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's hospitalization and the White House revoking press credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta.

If the idea was to discredit the White House's condemnation of Acosta's atrocious behavior at Trump's press conference and its decision to yank his press pass, a "doctored tape" conspiracy theory would be a good way to do that.

The White House Correspondents' Association and other journalism groups have backed him up, not to mention CNN. He started off his exchange with the president by saying that he will "challenge" Trump on his description of the migrant caravan. After increasingly heated back-and-forth between the men, Trump told Acosta "you should let me run the country, you run CNN", and cut off his questions. You shouldn't treat people that way...

He then doubled down on his criticism of Acosta, known for his combative encounters with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the president.

"She's very nasty, and she shouldn't be", he added.

The official Twitter account posted a statement which read: "This President's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far. But it could be others also". "I will continue to ask the questions that affect America, all of America". "When you are in the White House, this is a very sacred place to me, a very special place".

In a tweet posted soon after Trump's comments, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said: "This is a threat straight out of an authoritarian playbook".

US Retailers already kicking off Black Friday with big deals
All in all, there's probably something for everyone on Walmart's lengthy list of Black Friday 2018 deals. Black Friday 2018 will take place on Friday 23 November, with thousands of goods set to be reduced.

Trump responded: "What a stupid question that is". "And the way you treat other people is awful".

"I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser".

"What a stupid question you asked", Trump replied.

Despite the video's veracity being questioned, Sanders on Thursday reiterated that the administration will stand by its decision to revoke Acosta's hard pass. Trump's insults "are nothing new".

My thoughts exactly. And anyone who accuses the White House of lying about Acosta putting his hands on her is blind or lying himself. The newspaper said that if Sanders was so offended by physical contact, "what did she have to say when her boss praised as "my kind of guy" Rep. Greg Gianforte of Montana, who was sentenced to anger management classes and community service for body-slamming a Guardian reporter last spring?"

In between his calls for "respect", Trump called Acosta "unprofessional" and disparaged the reporter's intelligence.

Despite losing his White House pass, and the ability to travel with Trump and the rest of the press corps on Air Force One, Acosta went to Paris to cover Trump's meeting with world leaders this weekend.
