The video, originally made by an employee of Infowars, a far-right conspiracy website, shows Acosta's reaction to a White House employee who tried to grab a microphone from him while he attempted to question Donald Trump at a press conference on Wednesday.
"Look, I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice", he added.
"We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern", explained White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders via Twitter.
Jimmy Kimmel is weighing in on the ongoing feud between the White House and CNN reporter Jim Acosta. Acosta chose to ask Trump why he seemingly "demonized" the immigrants traveling to the American border at the moment.
"He gets paid to do this", Mr. Trump said. The tense exchange between President Trump and Acosta is hard and embarrassing to watch-not because the video has been "doctored" as some are now claiming but because both men demonstrate utter contempt and disrespect for their respective roles as they shamelessly peacock for ratings.
The president also said, "CNN should be ashamed of itself [for] having you working for them". She said on the network that the three presidents she covered prior to Trump may not have liked every question she asked, but understood why she did so.
"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".
In between his calls for "respect", Trump called Acosta "unprofessional" and disparaged the reporter's intelligence.
The New York Times also noted that Acosta's monologues have led "some of his rival White House reporters" to roll their eyes.
I don't remember any "without evidence" headlines in the media when Obama was pushing ObamaCare and telling the American people in speech after speech that they would be able to keep their doctors and health insurance, do you?

CNN have since defended the reporter and praised others for standing up for themselves during the tense exchange.
Sanders tweeted an edited video of a C-SPAN recording which, she wrote, clearly documents the inappropriate behavior.
He criticized NBC's Peter Alexander for backing Acosta. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said. "It's a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the U.S.", Acosta said, pushing his own personal opinion. "This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", CNN said.
