After Trump-Acosta Exchange, President Is ‘Kim-Jongish,’ Say Late-Night Hosts

Leftist late-night hosts were ringing the alarm bells on their shows on Thursday night over the White House revoking CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass.

The punishment of Acosta came after a heated exchange with the president where Acosta refused to give up his microphone or to accept President Donald Trump’s answer about why he has described the migrant caravan headed to the U.S./Mexico border as an “invasion.”

“This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any president in history,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Twitter about the situation with Acosta.

Jimmy Kimmel somehow took things a bit further by suggesting that Sarah Sanders “should be fired” from her position in the White House. The leftist comedian was angry over the video Sanders shared of Acosta’s scuffle with the White House intern, claiming the footage was misleading.

“Jim Acosta clearly never touched that White House intern,” Kimmel said. “That’s just a lie and I think this might also be the first time I’ve seen Sarah Sanders take the woman’s side on anything.”

Whether Kimmel believes Acosta assaulted the White House intern or not or that the video by Sanders was doctored or not, saying Acosta “never touched” the woman trying to take his microphone away is a ridiculous lie.

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah also covered the Acosta scuffle and said, “First, let’s catch up on today’s headlines. If you watched President Trump’s crazy press conference
