CNN's Acosta Tries To Grandstand Sarah Sanders. She Nukes Him

April FrancisOct 30, 2018

President Donald Trump blamed the media Monday for pre-election "anger" as the nation mourned the loss of 11 lives in the weekend shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue, the worst anti-Semitic attack in recent United States history.

But the announcement came shortly after the mayor of Pittsburgh, Bill Peduto, had called on the president not to visit so soon.

The first funerals will be held on Tuesday, for Cecil and David Rosenthal. "I think they're giving too much credit there and there's too much partisanship in that regard", Adam said. "It's the president placing blame here", the journalist responded.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders opened her first press briefing in 26 days with a tearful statement about the shooting, but ended the briefing with a diatribe against what the White House views as unfair coverage by the press.

He and other Jewish students at the vigil described calling friends and family to make sure they were safe and to express the grief and fear they had felt. The president wants to be there to show the support of this administration for the Jewish community. She went on to say that many of Trump's family members are Jewish, including his daughter and son-in-law, the descendant of Holocaust survivors.

It's a distinction that has been pointed out by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House Press Secretary, as well as other administration figures. This was only the second one in October, whereas the president has been holding informal question and answer sessions regularly as he campaigns for the midterm elections.

Sanders also defended Trump amid criticism that he has stoked divisions by refusing to tone down his inflammatory rhetoric in the wake of Saturday's shooting and last week's mail bombs targeting more than a dozen Democrats.

She added: "It's outrageous that that would be the very first reaction of so many people across this country". The shooting is believed to be the deadliest act of violence against Jews in U.S. history, the Associated Press reports.

Jim Acosta, a journalist at CNN, asked Sanders which outlets the president considers the enemy of the people.

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news", he continued Monday.

But when Acosta pressed Sanders for a list of media outlets that were considered to be "the enemy", Sanders refused. "The only person responsible for carrying either of these heinous acts were the individuals who carried them out".

"I think the president has had a number of moments of bringing the country together", she said.

Speaking at a rally in Murphysboro, Ill., Saturday, Trump said the "evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on all of us, it's an assault on humanity". "As young American Jews taking responsibility for the future of our community, we refuse to mince words: The blood spilled is a result of white supremacy".
