White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out CNN’s Jim Acosta on social media Monday evening, just hours after the reporter accused the Trump aide of intentionally ignoring his network due to their lack of “courage.”
Sparks flew between the two during the daily White House press briefing; with Acosta breathlessly asking his questions as Huckabee Sanders wrapped up the event and left the podium.

The Press Secretary educated the CNN correspondent hours later, saying “Courage isn’t taking ‘a question from CNN,’ Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. #itsnotaboutyou.”
