BREAKING: White House Suspends Jim Acosta's Hard Press Pass; UPDATE: Press Comes to Acosta's Aid

UPDATE

Acosta's colleagues at CNN and other liberal outlets quickly came to Acosta's defense.

The talking points vary. It's either that he's a great reporter or that he didn't actually put his hands on the White House Intern who tried taking away his microphone.

UPDATE

Acosta provided video of Secret Service taking his hard press pass.

And, of course, he disagreed with Sarah Huckabee Sanders' statement.

UPDATE

Here's Sarah Huckabee Sanders' thread on why the White House made the decision to pull Acosta's hard press pass:

ORIGINAL POST

After sparring with President Donald Trump earlier this afternoon, CNN's White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, has been denied access to the White House.

According to reports, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said they revoked Acosta's hard press pass, meaning Acosta must be escorted on property.

Some called for other reporters to stand in "solidarity" with Acosta.
