CNN’s Jim Acosta Gets Taste of His Own Medicine at Trump Rally

Published

on

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta has earned a reputation as being someone who is rude and unprofessional, often blurting out questions and yelling over other people to be heard, always being antagonistic of President Trump and those in his administration.

Acosta was recently blasted for how he conducted himself at the press conference for the summit Trump held with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, where he blasted him with questions. And let’s not forget his shouting questions at the president during the Easter egg roll event, which was supposed to be a fun day for kids, not a time for asking political inquiries.

Well, Acosta finally got a taste of his own medicine after attending a Trump rally stacked to the gills with folks who view the president as their hero. Big mistake.

Trending: Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

At President Trump’s planned rally in South Carolina, members of the crowd began chanting “Go home, Jim” to the famously combative CNN correspondent.

According to other videos posted by reporters at the West Columbia arena, chants of “CNN sucks” could also be heard, mimicking a chant in which Mr. Trump orchestrated the crowd at a rally in Minnesota last week.

One woman, identified as Maria Rojas, began berating Mr. Acosta personally as he stood in the reporters’ section.

Acosta has more or less done the same thing to the Trump administration ever since the president was sworn in, so it seems fitting that he experience a bit of his own rudeness played back on himself.

Journalists are supposed to be professionals who gather facts so the rest of us can make informed decisions. They’re not supposed to be hacks who push their own agenda.

Perhaps Acosta has finally learned his lesson. Probably not though.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
