Mike Huckabee Just Lashed Out At CNN’s Jim Acosta Over His Confrontation With Daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Mike Huckabee lashed out at CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Friday morning after Acosta had a tense exchange with Huckabee’s daughter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, during Thursday’s press briefing.

Huckabee targeted Acosta, who has been at the center of a firestorm over Donald Trump and the press, in a series of tweets after he and Sanders engaged in a heated back-and-forth over Trump’s repeated attacks on the press during Thursday’s White House press briefing.

The former governor referred to the reporter as a “BUG” in one tweet and his daughter as “the WINDSHIELD” and in another tweet shortly after the briefing said, “Jim Acosta suffers severe nose bleed from the elevation of his high horse. Taken to safe space and provided with Play Dough, a popsicle, pictures of a pony to color and a puppy.”

During Thursday’s briefing, Acosta repeatedly pressed Sanders to say she does not believe Trump’s claims that the press is the “enemy of the people.”

“For the sake of this room, the people that are in this room, this democracy, this country … the president of the United States should not refer to us as the enemy of the people,” Acosta said during the briefing. “His own daughter acknowledges that, and all I’m asking you to do, Sarah, is to acknowledge that right now and right here.”

Sanders responded to Acosta by saying she shares the reporter’s passion but refused to walk back Trump’s charged rhetoric.

“I’ve addressed this question, I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the president. He’s made his comments clear,” Sanders said.

Of course people weren’t buy what Mike Huckabee was selling:
