All it took from Sarah Sanders was one threat to turn CNN tough guy Jim Acosta into a quivering mess

The CNN correspondent told viewers and his social media followers how White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders threatened to remove him from future photo ops with the President if he interrupted a bill signing event with questions. He then went on to do it anyway.

The Press Secretary reportedly asked Jim Acosta to refrain from asking questions during the bill signing, warning that doing so might lead her to revoke his access to future events.

But Acosta ignored the instruction and posed his question, which the President ignored. The correspondent told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer that he would not be “intimidated.”

Acosta also shared his experience on Twitter.

“Prior to this morment, @presssec issued a warning to me,” Acota wrote. “She said if I asked a question of Trump at the bill signing “I can’t promise you will be allowed into a pool spray again.” Sorry Sarah.. we won’t be intimidated.”

Acosta’s question to President Trump was related to a controversial Tuesday tweet in which he blasted Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand–the President’s detractors accused of being laden with sexual innuendo.

This isn’t the first time Acosta clashed with Sanders.

On Monday, the Press Secretary shut down Acosta after he repeatedly interrupted her. “I’m not finished,” Sanders said sternly.

If Acosta keeps it up, the Press Secretary may one day follow through on her threat.
