In the third White House press briefing since his promotion to CNN chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta was promptly burned on Thursday by Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in regards to CNN’s ratings in response to Acosta’s question about what appeared to be contradictory Trump tweets about the FISA program.

Acosta opined to Sanders that, not surprisingly, “[t]here seems to it be a pattern” of “cause and effect” “where the President watches something on Fox and Friends then he tweets about it” in reference to his first FISA tweet denouncing the program after a segment by judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano.
