MUST-SEE: Sarah Sanders Wrecks CNN
Sarah Sanders: I’m sure you’re disappointed that he’s [@POTUS] not watching CNN.— Kyle Morris (@RealKyleMorris) January 11, 2018

CNN's Jim Acosta questioned White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday about President Donald Trump's television watching habits, and Sanders immediately embarrassed him with her response.
Acosta asked if Trump's early morning tweets were influenced by him watching Fox News.
“House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2018
With that being said, I have personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office and today’s vote is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land. We need it! Get smart!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2018
"There have been folks out there who have said, 'You know there's a cause and effect, he watches something on Fox & Friends, and then he tweets about it,'" Acosta said. "Is that what happened this morning and does that go on?"
"I'm sure you're disappointed he's not watching CNN," Sanders replied.
