White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders embarrassed CNN’s Jim Acosta Friday, pointing out how upset he would get if she didn’t give him an extra question.


After already asking a question and getting a response he continued, “Sarah–if I could just ask a second follow-up question…”

“Well because it’s Friday,” Sanders said.

“It’s Friday, yeah,” Acosta responded.

“And you’d probably get really upset, not only that, if I didn’t,” Sanders shot back.

“Not at all, not at all,” Acosta said. “You’ve probably seen this tweet it was a tweet that you posted before the election in 2016–‘When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing.’ What do you make of that now?”

“The rank and file FBI are some of the greatest people in this country,” she responded. “We’ve repeated that time and time again, and certainly have the full support of this administration. I think that we’ve been very clear though how we feel about some of the leadership at the FBI, particularly James Comey.”

However, Acosta still wasn’t done. Yes, he seriously wanted a third question.

He asked, “When you go after Comey…”

“I did give you two, Jim,” she responded.
