During a press briefing at the White House today CNN’s supposedly impartial White House correspondent Jim Acosta vigorously defended Democrats against charges they are anti-Semitic.
“Democrats don’t hate Jewish people. That’s just silly. It’s not true” Acosta claimed, right before Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders ripped him a new one.
Watch as “impartial” CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta defends and protects anti-Semitic Democrats during a news conference today:
ACOSTA: “And just to get back to John and Alex’s question about the President’s comments about Democrats and Jewish people, isn’t that kind of rhetoric sort of beneath everybody? And do you think that the President has thought at all going into this 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered whether he is talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants, or should we just plan on hearing the President use the same kind of language that we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple of years of this administration?”
HUCKABEE-SANDERS: “Look, I think that the real shame in all of this is that Democrats are perfectly capable of coming together and agreeing on the facts that they are comfortable ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb and killing a baby after birth, but they have a hard time condemning the type of comments from Congresswoman Omar. I think that is a great shame. The President has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people and the community of Israel. And beyond that, I don’t have anything further for you, Jim.”
ACOSTA: “But it just sort of drags down the rhetoric and the debate when you’re saying something that is just patently untrue.”
HUCKABEE-SANDERS: “Stating their policy positions is not patently untrue.”
ACOSTA: “Democrats don’t hate Jewish people. That’s just silly. It’s not true.”
HUCKABEE-SANDERS: “They should call out their members by name and we’ve made that clear. I don’t have anything further for you.”
