CNN's senior White House correspondent unloaded on White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders after a contentious White House press conference this week; claiming his treatment was "un-American".

McCammon was alluding to comments made earlier on Thursday by Ivanka Trump at an Axios event in Washington, during which she contradicted her father's previous controversial rhetoric. When I was hosted by the correspondence association you brought up a comedian to attack me.

Complaining about her own treatment that she sees as a outcome of media bias, she said some of the president's adversaries have 'said I should be harassed as a life sentence.

At one of the president's rallies on Tuesday night (you know how presidents traditionally take time to hold rallies for no reason), CNN reporter Jim Acosta incurred the wrath of some fired-up attendees.

No, seriously, I think this is the moment CNN finally decides to give him his own show.

The press secretary was responding to similar allegations leveled against President Trump.

Sanders started to answer, but Acosta cut her off. Trump then proceeded to take the next question from Fox News.

She added, "as far as I know, I am the first press secretary in the history of the United States that has required Secret Service protection".

Coats also said: "The intelligence community continues to be concerned about the threats of upcoming us elections, both the midterms and the presidential elections of 2020".

I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened.

Sulzberger later issued a statement saying that he was concerned that the president had labelled the media an "enemy of the people" and that he warned that this "inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence".

Rather than denounce what happened to Acosta, Sanders used that opportunity to rip the media. "It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!" he wrote.

During an impromptu interview with reporters, Giuliani said that President Trump was just tweeting his opinions and that he hasn't fully researched if obstructing justice is a crime.

Right-wing pundits, including Sean Hannity and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, celebrated the incident, while those on the left celebrated the veteran CNN reporter as a hero of the anti-Trump "Resistance".
