Sarah Sanders Just Delivered a Piledriver to Jim Acosta’s Ego

God, we hope she’s not leaving anytime soon. (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Fires Back Over Report She’s Leaving White House). If ever there were a person born for the role of press secretary in the Trump White House, it’s Sarah Sanders.

Sanders was in a feisty mood at Thursday’s press briefing, and as per usual, CNN’s Jim Acosta ended up on the receiving end of a verbal beat down.

Acosta took comments by Attorney General Jeff Sessions completely out of context and ran with them to attack the Trump administration for separating illegal immigrant families.

Sanders responded by mocking Acosta for finding it difficult “to understand even short sentences.”

Tombstone. Piledriver.

“The Attorney General earlier today said somehow there’s a justification for this in the Bible. Where does it say in the Bible that it’s moral to take children away from their mothers?” Acosta asked.

It doesn’t. The morality comes in properly enforcing laws.

Sanders responded as much.

“I’m not aware of the Attorney General’s comments or what he would be referencing,” she countered. “I can say that it is very Biblical to enforce the law. That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible.”

Acosta tried to cut her off.

“Hold on, Jim, if you’ll let me finish — again, I’m not going to comment on the Attorney’s specific comments that I haven’t seen,” she said.

A flabbergasted Acosta responded, “You just said it’s in the Bible to follow the law.”

“That’s not what I said,” Sanders slapped back, “I know it’s hard for you to understand even short sentences, I guess, but please don’t take my words out of context.”

As you might expect, Acosta’s fellow stable mates took umbrage (without evidence) with Sanders’ assertion that Acosta is a half-wit.

“The separation of alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close, and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade,” Sanders explained to an intellectually challenged Acosta. “The President is simply enforcing them.”

What’s so hard to understand about that, Jim?
