Friday’s White House briefing was raucous with James Comey’s liberal media-acclaimed book tour set to officially begin and, yes, CNN’s Jim Acosta played a prominent role tangling with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about whether criticizing Comey is “unbecoming of the presidency” and White House writ large. He also found help from CBS correspondent Paula Reid after he ran over the two question limit that Sanders imposed on the egotistical CNN personality.
Feeding into the left’s dream of impeaching President Trump, CNN’s infamously incomparable White House correspondent Jim Acosta raised during Wednesday’s White House briefing the prospect of the President being impeached by the House if Democrats take control starting in January 2019.
As Scott Whitlock noted Tuesday afternoon, CNN's perpetually aggrieved Jim Acosta was at it again, hinting at a conspiracy behind a lost broadcast connection: "I won’t read into why we lost connection just a few moments ago." Acosta's Tuesday whining shouldn't cause us to forget or ignore what he did on Monday, when he set a new low for journalistic rudeness by shouting questions at President Donald Trump during the White House Easter egg roll.
Daily Beast editor-in-chief John Avlon is a regular guest on CNN's Reliable Sources, so it shouldn't be the slightest bit surprising that the Daily Beast is rushing to provide aid and comfort to CNN's "courageous" screamer in the White House briefing room. The latest article by Lloyd Grove is headlined in tabloid style: "CNN’s Jim Acosta: The Trump Trolls Who Want Me Dead." Lloyd Grove went to Sam Donaldson, who insisted Acosta was "as good as it gets."
As the Media Research Center’s Curtis Houck reported on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta threw a hissy fit following yet another White House press briefing where he wasn’t called on to ask a question (the third by his count). And in a rather enthusiastic appearance on Fox News Channel’s Hannity, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer ripped into the moody CNN journalist for acting so immaturely.
As we’ve learned beginning with the 2016 election, CNN’s Jim Acosta has emerged as perhaps the most melodramatic and self-centered liberal journalists to ever grace the airwaves. Monday’s 20-minute White House press briefing saw a new installment as he bewailed Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders not calling on him.
CNN’s Jim Acosta made a brief appearance during Monday’s White House press briefing, questioning Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about fears arming teachers would make schools the new “Wild West” and President Trump’s comments about how he would have stormed Stoneman Douglas High School to save lives.
Soopermexican at The Right Scoop arrived first at the latest example of Jim Acosta banging a can against Team Trump on Tuesday night for describing some "Dreamers" as too lazy to apply for DACA status to prevent them from deportation. Chief of staff John Kelly told The Washington Post some were "too lazy to get off their asses." This sounds designed to get Acosta's goat.
In the midst of complaining about President Trump boasting about the growing economy, during his speech in Davos this morning, CNN’s Jim Acosta took a break to whinge about the president’s brief jab at the press during the event. During a Q&A at the Friday forum, Trump explained that he had always had a good relationship with the press, until he entered politics.
Immediately following President Trump’s speech before business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this morning, CNN had the usual knee-jerk reaction to find something to complain about. Despite the abundance of stories of how Trump’s tax plan has benefitted countless companies who are passing on their saved money to their employees, CNN refused to give Trump credit for the positive economy news.
It’s certainly no secret that Republican President Donald Trump and the liberals in the “mainstream media” haven’t gotten along since before Trump was inaugurated on Saturday, January 20, 2017. However, that hostile relationship was raised several notches when CNN Tonight host Don Lemon accused Trump on Tuesday of using “Fake News” in such a harmful way that, in Lemon's book, it's inspired people to conspire to murder journalists.
CNN's Jim Acosta has had a rough four days. It's hard not to take some pleasure in that situation, given the Chief White House Correspondent's habitual rudeness and petulance with President Trump, and with his representatives during White House press briefings.
