Donald Trump and Press Secretary Huckabee-Sanders, among other top Administration officials, were sued by CNN for unlawfully barring CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta from White House grounds after he got under Trump's skin during a press conference. The White House accused Acosta of inappropriately touching a White House intern and even shared a blatantly doctored video from a fringe right-wing website as "evidence" of his assault, but later changed their tune and insisted that he was blacklisted because he was "disrespectful and unprofessional."
