CNN’s Jim Acosta Proposes a White House Press Briefing Walkout

But would anyone follow?

A little over a week before Trump’s inauguration, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta had a featured role during a January presser that at the time was Trump’s first in 167 days. Coming the day after CNN had described the existence of a report claiming that Russia had compromising information on Trump, a report BuzzFeed then released, Trump called Acosta, and by proxy, CNN, “fake news” and refused to take a question from Acosta. As Acosta described in the aftermath, incoming press secretary Sean Spicer threatened Acosta with ejection next time.
