Sarah Sanders Just Banned Jim Acosta From The White House And Her Excuse Is Sickening…

The White House just pulled press credentials from CNN’s Jim Acosta after he engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Donald Trump.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cited Acosta’s refusal to give up the microphone from a young staffer who tried to take it during a press conference on orders from Trump.

Sanders said in a statement the White House will “never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable.”

“As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice,” Sanders said.

Acosta said he was denied entrance to the White House.

Earlier today, Acosta has a testy press conference clash with Trump.

During the heated exchange, Trump said this after ordering him to put down the mic: “I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person, you shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

CNN fired back a statement afterward saying Trump has gone “too far.”

Here is the altercation:
