White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders smacked down CNN’s Jim Acosta after he asked a race-baiting question.
During the White House press briefing on Monday, Acosta asked Sanders about a tweet President Donald Trump sent out last week about securing the border and limiting illegal immigration.
As noted by The Daily Caller, here’s Acosta’s long-winded, politically infused question for Sanders:
“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? That they breed a lot, or that they’re prone to breeding?”
Sanders slammed his race-baiting question down in less than 10 seconds.
“No, he’s talking about the problem itself growing and getting bigger,” Sanders said, visibly frustrated that she had to answer a variation of that same question all day.
When Sanders moved on, she was asked by CNN’s April Ryan nearly the exact same question as Acosta.
They were referring to a tweet Trump sent out last Wednesday, where Sanders said the president was implying that some illegal immigrants come to the U.S. to have children so they can receive health care and medical treatment.
There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!

Of course many in the media were destined to imply Trump is racist and didn’t want immigrants to given birth to children in the U.S.
As Sanders explained over and over again, the president meant that it wasn’t acceptable for immigrants to illegally enter the country and leave American taxpayers to foot the medical bills.
Acosta tried to not-so-subtly imply Trump was racist, and Sander absolutely nuked him for it.
