White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took a swipe at CNN’s Jim Acosta and his desire to “go one-on-one with President Trump” during an interview Friday night with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“I don’t think there has ever been a more hostile news media in the country than there has been to President Trump. I think it’s obvious,” Hannity told Sanders to start the interview.
Sanders said that despite the fact that there are “so many good things they could be talking about” that the president is accomplishing, “90 percent of the coverage is negative.”
The press secretary then launched into a comment Acosta made on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” daring the president to do an interview with him.
“Just a little note to Jim,” Sanders said. “I think he should stick with going one-on-one with me, because President Trump is way out of his league, and I don’t think he wants to take on that challenge because he’s definitely not going to win. I think that the media bias is out of control, and he’s certainly one of the leaders of the pack.”
