Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin applauded President-elect Donald Trump for being a "fearless leader" during his first press conference since the election.

In a heated exchange that made headlines Wednesday, Trump refused to let CNN reporter Jim Acosta ask a question based on his media outlet's coverage of the unverified dossier claiming Trump's deep ties to Russia.

In a Facebook post later that day, Palin thanked Trump for "creating the movement that shook things up to get America on the right road."
