People On Twitter Call For Sarah Huckabee Sanders To Resign For Jim Acosta Video

Some Twitter users are calling for the resignation of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she shared a video on her feed that appears to be doctored.

The video features CNN reporter Jim Acosta holding firm to a microphone while a White House intern attempts to take it from him. Sanders said in her tweets that Acosta “placed his hands” on the intern and that his behavior was inappropriate.

On Wednesday night, Sanders announced on Twitter that the administration would revoke Acosta’s press credentials after a contentious interaction with President Donald Trump at a press conference earlier in the day. 

Trump called Acosta a “rude, terrible person” during the press conference and tried to cut off his questioning, all while a White House intern attempted to take the microphone from Acosta’s hands. Sanders’ video of the interaction looks to be sped up so that Acosta looks like he’s moving more aggressively than he actually was.

Here’s the video Sanders shared, followed by the video of the event as it was recorded: 

The video Sanders posted was shared hours earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, a personality from Infowars. For the unfamiliar, Infowars is the Alex Jones-helmed outlet banned from many social media sites for abusive behavior.

After the variations of the video went viral, some on Twitter are calling for Sanders to resign for disseminating doctored information.

Huckabee Sanders and the White House have not responded to HuffPost’s request for comment, but doubled down on her comments on Thursday afternoon, saying in a statement: “The question is: did the reporter make contact or not? The video is clear, he did. We stand by our statement.”

This has been updated to include a statement from Huckabee Sanders.

That all women hate prenups, because they are gold diggers.

“The most difficult aspect of the prenuptial agreement is informing your future wife (or husband): I love you very much, but just in case things don’t work out, this is what you will get in the divorce. There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her.” --Trump: The Art of the Comeback, 1997
