The following article, WATCH: Mnuchin Silences CNN’s Acosta After He Asks If Trump’s Nat’l Security Team Is ‘A Mess’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
On Tuesday, National Security Adviser John Bolton abruptly resigned or was fired by President Trump.
Depending on where you hear it from, you might get a few different stories.
During a presser after the news went public, Jim Acosta, CNN’s resident political activist who poses as a reporter, asked Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is Trump’s security team is “a mess.”
He didn’t get the answer he was looking for.
Asked if the Trump administration’s national security team is “a mess,” Treasury Sec. Steve Mnuchin says, “Absolutely not. That’s the most ridiculous question I’ve ever heard of.”

Fox News has more:
CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein has fired an explosive broadside at President Trump, claiming former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s departure from the administration is the latest evidence that Trump “cannot conduct a coherent presidency.”
“This is, perhaps, the most convincing evidence that we’ve seen of late that we have a governing crisis under this president — a dire crisis in which the national security of the United States is not secure because of the conduct of the president of the United States,” Bernstein said on Tuesday.
His comments came after the president announced on Twitter that he Bolton was leaving his job. Bolton is the third national security adviser to exit the administration.
Trump v. Acosta. It could be a movie one day.
Of course, Jim will be portrayed as the victim and Trump the villain.
Check out what happened after the CNN “reporter” asked the president a question during a press conference in Japan…
From Daily Wire:
President Donald Trump mocked CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Saturday during a G-20 press conference in Osaka, Japan, which elicited laughter from the audience.
Acosta – are you afraid of offending him on that subject?
Pres. Trump: Not at all. I don't really care about offending people. I sort of thought you would know that
