Sarah Sanders held a press briefing at the White House this afternoon, and CNN’s intrepid Resistance reporter Jim Acosta made it clear that it’s been a while since he’s been able to ask questions:

During the briefing, Sanders was asked about comments President Trump reportedly made about Democrats in the wake of anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib as well as those in the party who defended or refused to condemn them:
Asked about President Trump saying Democrats are the anti-Jewish party, Sarah Sanders tells @jonkarl, "frankly the remarks that have been made by a number of Democrats and failed to be called out by Democrat leadership is frankly abhorrent and it's sad" https://t.co/PszixgsZb5 pic.twitter.com/MsttSc4zLQ

CNN’s Jim Acosta took a most predictable approach, sounding as if he could be a spokesman for the DNC:
.@Acosta spars with Sarah Sanders after telling her that she's "saying something that's just patently untrue"

Here’s that CNN-style “journalism” we’re all so familiar with:
CNN's @Acosta goes to bat for Democrats, says it's "patently untrue" members of the party are anti-Semitic.

Acosta then suggests Trump thinks "there are very fine people" who are Nazis.

The Dems know they can count on the MSM to have their backs!
Democrat member of Congress repeatedly makes anti-Semitic comments. Acosta is very concerned about Trump’s reaction to those comments. https://t.co/6FjFb9yXE6

There's no way for anyone to seriously make the case that this is a unbiased journalist. https://t.co/o0ZvN2k9eC

If somebody tried that case would get laughed out of court.
