White House press secretary Sarah Sanders held nothing back during a press briefing on Wednesday, calling out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and roasting several reporters with some clever anti-media zingers.

When asked if Pelosi has extended an invitation to President Donald Trump to deliver his State of the Union address following her political stunt to postpone it during the government shutdown, Sanders didn’t mince words.

"I certainly don't think she acted in good faith on the front end, considering she cited security concerns that didn't exist,” Sanders said. “But we're certainly hopeful that moving forward in the future, that she will.”

She also advised government workers concerned about another potential government shutdown to contact Democrats in Congress and tell them to do their jobs.

"My advice would be to call your Democrat member of Congress and ask them to fix the problem so we don't have to continue having this process,” Sanders said.

She took a humorous jab at another reporter over his self-admitted lack of knowledge on DACA.

"Since I know so little about this, let me ask you a couple questions,” the reporter began.

“At least we're in agreement on something,” Sanders interrupted.

After the room reacted, Sanders added: “Joke, everybody settle down.”

Later in the briefing, she took a shot at CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s expense.

"I never thought I'd be shutting down one reporter to go to Jim Acosta...but here we are,” she said.

Of course, she also ended up clashing with Acosta after she called on him for a question. Predictably, he asked if the Trump presidency was in “danger” after the arrest of Roger Stone.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” she said. “The more that this goes on, the more and more we see that none of these things have anything to do with the president.”

She made it clear that the charges against Roger Stone literally have nothing to do with President Trump.
