White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer absolutely destroyed CNN’s Jim Acosta on Thursday.
Acosta tried to press the wiretapping claims, forcing Spicer to put him in his place.
“You’re a guy with zero intelligence…clearance.. Hah!” said Spicer.
“I know you want to cherry pick..you do! Where was your concern about the New York Times reporting? You didn’t seem to have a concern with that?”
“We have done plenty of reporting on all of that, Sean,” shot back Acosta.
“How do you know all of this? How do you seem to be such an expert in this?
“I’m saying that this has been looked at, Sean.”
“How do you know it’s been looked at? Wait wait a minute..can you tell me how you know that all of this has quote been looked at?”
“Other outlets have reported…you have a Senate and House intelligence committee both leaders from both parties on both of those panels saying that they don’t see any evidence of wiretapping. So how can the President go on and continue.”
“Jim, I think that’s cute, but at the end of the day we talked about this for 3 or 4 days. The President was referring to broad surveillance and now you’re basically going back.”
Give that man some ice because he just got burned.
