Trump responded in a vicious tone, "What a stupid question". What a stupid question.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is under attack for allegedly sharing a doctored video on Twitter, on Wednesday, to prove a point that her office was right in revoking the press pass of CNN Correspondent Jim Acosta. But he said there could be others.

In an attempt to justify the extremely not-chill, very authoritarian move, Sarah Sanders tweeted out a video that had been edited by INFOWARS to make Acosta seem like he physically assaulted the intern (he did not).
On Wednesday, a White House intern tried to take a microphone away from Acosta as he was asking President Trump questions that the president didn't want to answer.
Host Brian Stelter replied, "Not that I know of". "She gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise and a contract with I think CNN. But she's very nasty, and she shouldn't be". [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new. While appearing in a Mother's Day interview this year, Sanders suggested dealing with Acosta was like dealing with her children: they both whined and repeatedly asked the same questions.
Journalists have lined up behind Acosta following the White House action, and the White House Correspondent's Association issued a statement shortly after CNN's lawsuit was made public that was "strongly" supportive of the legal action.More news: As nation observes Veterans Day, Trump not visiting Arlington National Cemetery

Last Wednesday, shortly after Acosta was denied entry to the White House grounds, Sanders defended the unprecedented step by claiming that he had behaved inappropriately at a presidential news conference.
