‘Retaliation’? Acosta, Blitzer Criticize White House for CNN’s Distant Seating at Presser

Earlier today, CNN’s Jim Acosta made note of just where his network was located during President Trump‘s presser. And he wasn’t happy about it:

He appeared with Wolf Blitzer hours later to tell him the same, again saying it could have potentially been “retaliation.”

“If it is retaliation,” he said, “that’s not going to deter us from what we’re doing over here.”

He even said that this felt like CNN was “being put in time-out.”

Blitzer was disturbed by this as well, calling it “pretty outrageous.”
