'I'm Not Finished!': Sanders Battles CNN's Acosta on False Media Reports

Chelsea Handler, who says she's a feminist, is doubling down on her attacks on White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's physical appearance.

The report drew ire from President Trump and his oldest son. Trump called on Weigel to be fired for tweeting out (and deleting) a misleading photo from Trump's Pensacola rally. "This is a big problem and we think it's something that should be taken seriously".

"[Flynn] is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate. ordered him, directed him to make contact with the Russians", Ross said.

"As a woman standing up there talking to us, I know your job is to relate what the president says, have you ever been sexually harassed and do you understand - and I'm not saying by the president - I'm saying ever?"

Acosta had claimed that making honest mistakes didn't mean a journalist was "fake news".

"I'm not aware of any countries' commitment to follow suit in this", she said. In the video released earlier this week, Feimster mimics Huckabee putting on her make up, calling it a YouTube Make Up Tutorial.

After President Donald Trump slurred a few words at the end of his Jerusalem speech on Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that the slip-up occurred due to a dry throat.

Acosta then took the baton and the presser more or less derailed.

Acosta asked her if there was a specific news story from a legitimate media outlet she could point to that was intentionally false and done to mislead the American people.

Sanders called out the false report by ABC News' Brian Ross on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, which earned Ross a four-week suspension. As Acosta attempted to ask that question, Sanders ignored him, instead going to another reporter speaking over Acosta.

"I'm sorry. I'm not finished!" she countered.

On Friday, CNN corrected a scoop which initially claimed WikiLeaks provided access to stolen emails to Donald Trump Jr. on September 4, 2016, before they were public.
