“Yes, Jim. Do you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?” Kellyanne rebutted. “Am I allowed to mention God to you?”
Acosta became triggered and said, “I’m not the one who has the alternative facts problem like you do. Will the President tell the truth?”
As Acosa kept running his mouth at Kellyanne, she fired back again and took him to the woodshed. (Video Below)
“By the way, this is why I’m one of the only people here who even gives you the time of day. And let me get back in your face…” Kellyanne said while pointing her finger at Acosta. “You’re such a smartass most of the time, and I know you want this to go viral.”
“A lot of these people don’t like you!” She declared. “But, let me just be respectful to media at large as I always am. I explained that that was additional information and facts, and I explained it many times. And, don’t you put it back in my face for all the corrections that your network needs to issue. I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothers to go on, and the disrespect that you showed to me personally, I’ll just look past.”
Acosta suddenly had a different change of heart and tried to call her “ma’am.”
Kellyanne shot back, “Don’t call me ‘ma’am to make it up.”
