White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders swatted away CNN’s Jim Acosta when he asked a race-baiting question Monday.


Acosta, already on his second question, asked, “Can I ask you about a tweet that the president put out last week?”

“He tweeted a lot over the weekend, but, last week, he was talking about sanctuary cities in California and, saying there was a revolution going on in California, some of these sanctuary areas want out of this ridiculous crime infested and breeding concept.”

“We haven’t had a chance to ask you about that tweet — when he used the word breeding, was he making a derogatory term about Latinos in California?” he continued. “That they breed a lot, or that they’re prone to breeding?”

Sanders did not take more than 10 seconds to dispense with this question.

“No, he’s talking about the problem itself growing and getting bigger,” Sanders said. (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Is Asked About ‘Trade Wars’ — She Slaps A Tariff On The Media)

Acosta attempted to ask another question, but Sanders quickly moved on to another reporter.
