SF Gate reports that Sarah Sanders doubled down on the White House’s decision to revoke Jim Acosta’s press credentials. on Wednesday she shared a video of an incident between Acosta and a White House intern which she said showed his “inappropriate” behavior. Critics however accused the footage of being doctored to make Acosta look worse. The footage was also promoted by InfoWars.
Sanders wrote in a tweet, “We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video.” Sanders did not mention Acosta by name.
