Some Twitter users are calling for the resignation of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she shared a video on her feed that appears to be doctored.
The video features CNN reporter Jim Acosta holding firm to a microphone while a White House intern attempts to take it from him. Sanders said in her tweets that Acosta “placed his hands” on the intern and that his behavior was inappropriate.
On Wednesday night, Sanders announced on Twitter that the administration would revoke Acosta’s press credentials after a contentious interaction with President Donald Trump at a press conference earlier in the day.
Trump called Acosta a “rude, terrible person” during the press conference and tried to cut off his questioning, all while a White House intern attempted to take the microphone from Acosta’s hands. Sanders’ video of the interaction looks to be sped up so that Acosta looks like he’s moving more aggressively than he actually was.
