CNN’s Acosta Rips White House ‘Stonewalling’ After Off-Camera Gaggle: Spicer ‘Kind of Useless’ Now


CNN’s Jim Acosta continued to go off on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer today after today’s off-camera, no-audio gaggle, which he earlier made clear on Twitter frustrated him:

He reiterated those same points later to Brooke Baldwin, saying that this isn’t about the press being “crybabies” but about the American people being able to see these answers on camera.

Acosta even went on to take this shot at Spicer, in the context of him not giving a more direct answer on whether there are White House “tapes” or on whether the president believes in climate change or not:

“The White House press secretary is getting to a point, Brooke, where he’s just kind of useless. You know, if he can’t come out and answer the questions and they’re just not going to do this on-camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?”
