White House caught in massive lie about Jim Acosta…and there’s video to prove it

She went on to make contact with Acosta for a third and fourth time, which you can clearly see in the video below.

The exchange happened after Trump cut off Acosta’s questions about immigration, calling him a “rude, terrible person,” and again, “an enemy of the people”.
