Sarah Huckabee Sanders Puts Out Doctored Infowars Video To Justify Banning CNN Reporter (VIDEO)

The White House took away the press credentials from CNN’s Jim Acosta on Wednesday claiming that he “put his hands on” an intern. Then on Thursday Sarah Sanders put out a doctored video from Infowars to justify their move.

On Thursday White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted out a doctored video making it look like the actions of CNN reporter Jim Acosta were more violent than they actually were.

At a very contentious press briefing on Wednesday Acosta got into a heated back and forth with Trump. When Trump got mad about Acosta’s question, a female White House intern tried to take the mic away from him. But Acosta held tight to the mic and continued to press Trump for an answer to his question.

When the intern reached for the mic she and Acosta inadvertently touched each other. And when they did Acosta remained professional and said, “Pardon me, ma’am.”

But after the briefing the White House banned Acosta, taking away his press credentials. Sanders later put out a series of tweets claiming that Acosta had “put his hands on” the intern. That was a lie. But it gets even worse.

On Thursday morning Sanders tweeted out what appears to be a doctored video of the incidence that she got from Alex Jones’ Infowars. In the video the interaction was sped up to make it look like Acosta was being more aggressive than he actually was. And the reach for the mic by the intern was slowed down to make it look less aggressive than it was.

Here’s the video that Sanders put out.

Now here’s the real video.

Just hours before Sanders tweeted the doctored video, it was shared by Paul Joseph Watson who is a personality from Alex Jones’ Infowars.

A reporter from Slate put out a side-by-side video showing the altered video next to the real one.

This is just another stunt by an out-of-control White House in their endless war against the press. It is clear in the video that Acosta didn’t put his hands on the intern, as Sanders claims.

By Thursday afternoon journalists on Twitter were calling for Sanders’ resignation over the altered video.
