Should be ‘fake news,’ but it’s not. This is ACTUALLY HAPPENING!

There are some things you just can’t make up.

CNN’s Jim Acosta, one of President Trump’s fiercest critics in the media, is set to receive a big award.

This is one of those things.

2.) It just really doesn’t make any sense.

From Daily Caller:

The New York Press announced Jim Acosta as the recipient of their “Truth to Power” award Friday. The award is intended to honor “an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists.”

“We are proud to honor a man such as Jim Acosta, who has proven himself throughout his storied, decades-long career to be a journalist of the utmost integrity, ” Jane Tillman Irving, president of the Press Club, said in the release, which was first reported by The Wrap. “For his unwavering commitment to fact and journalism, we are pleased to add to Jim’s many accolades with the Gabe Pressman ‘Truth to Power’ award.”

Acosta must still be salty about the shellacking he took at the hands of President Trump during a press conference at the White House a few months back.

However, there’s no excuse for a journalist to smirk when the governor of Puerto Rico threatens to punch the commander-in-chief (or anybody, for that matter) in the mouth.

From Daily Wire:

In the interview, which aired on “CNN Right Now With Brianna Keilar,” Rossello said: “If the bully gets close, I’ll punch the bully in the mouth.”

Acosta asked, “Just like that.”

Rossello replied, “Just like that.

WATCH:

Needless to say, Acosta and Trump go together like peanut butter and tuna fish.

Jim has revealed he’s set to release a book on Trump.

Twitter took notice and they let Acosta have it…

Kellyanne Conway is the first female campaign manager to be victorious in a presidential election. If she were a liberal, Conway would be deemed a hero by the left.

During a presser with the media back in January, Kellyanne ripped into Acosta for being a “smart ass.”

She wasn’t wrong.

The Democrat Party activist Acosta wanted to know if President Trump was going to “tell the truth” in his Tuesday night address to the nation.

From Fox News:

Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does.

Conway: “Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day. You’re such a smarta– most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.

WATCH:

It’s hard to forget Acosta’s White House outburst. It is certainly something for which he’ll always be remembered – and that may have been the point.

A Trump-appointed judge ruled the White House had to give back Acosta’s hard pass after it was taken from him.

Conservative Mark Levin wasn’t thrilled:

Save conservative media!

New Reports Say Number Of NY Nursing Home Deaths Much Higher Than Reported

Published

on

A brand new report has hit the news cycle, and it’s not at all good news for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The report alleges that the number of folks who died at nursing homes of the coronavirus, which were mostly due to horrific policy decisions by Cuomo himself, are much higher than first reported. Cuomo has taken a lot of heat for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and for decisions that led to the deaths of thousands of at-risk individuals in nursing home facilities. The left has been attempting to spin the situation and make Cuomo out to be some sort of hero, but nobody is buying that garbage. Check out the details from The Daily Wire: “New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount,” the Associated Press reported. “Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.” According to the AP, on paper, the nursing home only reported a total of four deaths from the coronavirus out of its nearly 150-bed facility. However, the true number is 21 dead, most of whom were transported out of the facility and to hospitals before they died. “That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600,” the AP continued. “But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.” Keep in mind that New York City became a hot bed for COVID-19 infections,…

Coronavirus Relief Negotiations Hit Yet Another Snag, This Time The Obstacle Is State Aid

Published

on

Trump administration officials and leaders within the Democratic Party continue to remain at a stalemate when it comes to negotiating another coronavirus relief package, as money for state and local governments appears as yet another snag in the negotiations. Of course, the left has also been trying to politicize this relief package and use it to get some wish list items of their passed into law, which is also not helping things. As of now, both sides in the debate over the relief package are bickering about whether or not states should receive more funding in the next round of emergency funding, and if so, how much is appropriate. Here’s more on this from Fox News: Negotiators are trying to close the divide between the Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion HEALS Act, which includes no new funding for states, and the House’s $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which allocates about $1 trillion in new funding for state and local governments. The stalemate puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of out-of-work Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments. There were no signs of a détente on Monday, with each party blaming the other for the stalled-out discussions. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, one of the lead negotiators in the relief package, referred to the Democrats’ request for $1 trillion for state aid “an absurd number,” stating there’s “plenty” of cash available already for the governments. “We’re not going to give a trillion dollars for state and local,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “That’s just not a reasonable approach.” President Trump has also made his feelings clear on this number, and as…
