CNN's Jim Acosta was argumentative with President Trump during a press conference on Wednesday. As a result, the White House has revoked his press credentials.

Acosta is obviously not happy.

According to The Daily Wire:

The United States Secret Service took away CNN's Jim Acosta's "hard pass" late on Wednesday after the professional provocateur pulled another obnoxious stunt during a White House press conference.

"I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit," Acosta wrote on Twitter.

 

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a tweet. "We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern."

 

"Contrary to CNN’s assertions, there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today," Sanders continued. "Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question."


Acosta took a video of his credentials being taken by the Secret Service and it is just as funny as you think it would be.
  The feud between President Trump and CNN looks to be heating up.
