Sign the Petition to

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

In a blatant attack on the free press, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the Trump Administration have revoked the press credentials of well-respected reporter, and occasional Trump critic, Jim Acosta. Acosta asked the President difficult questions about his characterization of the refugee caravan as an "invasion," to which Trump responded by berating and insulting Acosta and instructing an intern to remove the mic from Acosta's hand. After the confrontation, the White House shared a doctored video, edited to make it look like Acosta physically struck the White House intern attempting to remove his mic.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is willfully lying to the American people and is attempting to deny our first amendment right to a free press. These attacks are reminiscent of other authoritarian governments, in which tyrants attack their critics on the basis of flimsy lies in an attempt to smear and discredit those who would question them. We demand you apologize for sharing false information and resign your post immediately. We cannot tolerate your behavior, which endangers our rights to a free and independent press.

Signed,

Tyrants achieve their aims by capitalizing on the inattention of the people. Trump and Huckabee Sanders' attacks on the Free Press will only succeed if they think we are not watching and not fighting back. Let them know that we are paying attention and we will not stand for their smearing of respected reporter, Jim Acosta.
