After Jim Acosta spent some time away from the White House briefings which allowed his colleagues to spew their imbecilic Trump-Hate questions.
Jim Acosta must have decided that he’d seen enough and needed to add a new chapter to his ‘Dear Diary,’ which had been gathering dust sitting next to the truckload of boxes of his unsold book, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America, which he’s currently using for firewood.
Wrestling away they ‘look at me’ mic from PBS correspondent MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor’s who has recently gained national attention for asking Acosta-like moronic ‘not my president‘ questions.
CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta stepped back in the ring for Monday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, as usual, while trying to appear smart, he once again made a fool out of himself.
Fortunately for a nation in the grips of dealing with the Coronavirus crisis, the ordeal lasted less than two minutes and ended with President Trump torching Acosta for his “nasty, snarky question” about the President’s past statements at what was then an evolving pandemic.
Having recognized he was there, Trump reluctantly called on the Clown News Network’s Chief Comedian: “Go ahead, let’s give it a shot.”
As anyone watching would have suspected, Jim Acosta wasted little airtime asking something moronic.
As thousands of Americans are perishing from this horrific disease, Jim Acosta gathered up all of CNN’s greatest ‘Trump Quote’ hits that they’ve been harping on for the past few weeks:
Sir, what do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis over the last couple of months? “We have it very much under control in this country,” “the coronavirus is very much under control in the USA.” “It’s going to disappear.” “It’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” March 4th: “We have a very small number of people in this country infected.” March 10th: “We are doing a great job with it. It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.” What do you say to Americans who believe that you got this wrong?
The President didn’t initially beat Acosta to a bloody pulp. Instead, he chose to answer the question, noting that he still does believe the coronavirus will go away, that Americans should “stay calm,” and that everyone’s “doing a great job.”
Then President Trump dropped the hammer on Jim Acosta and CNN like only he can.
“[W]e’re going to have a great victory and it’s people like you and CNN that say things like that, that it’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN anymore. You could ask a normal question,”
“The statements are what I want to keep the country calm, I dona’t want panic in the country. I can cause panic much better than you, that’ll make you look like a minor league player…”
“I’m very proud. It’s almost a miracle and it is — the way it’s all come together and instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that, you should ask a real question and other than that, I’m going to go to somebody else.”
As we mentioned earlier Jim Acosta’s latest ‘Dear Diary’ moment follows the Trump-Hate stupidity that has been spewing out of PBS NewsHour correspondent, and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor.
