CNN tweeted out their support for the actions of reporter Jim Acosta at the White House Wednesday.

"This president's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far. They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American," the network said.

"While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it. A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere."

At a press conference Wednesday, President Trump had told Acosta “that’s enough” after answering a series of questions. Acosta continued lobbing questions, even after the president began moving on to other reporters. Acosta then refused to hand over the microphone for the next reporter.

“I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person, you shouldn’t be working at CNN,” Trump told Acosta.

Apparently CNN is not ashamed, but rather proud.
