CNN’s Jim Acosta just got his rear end handed to him on Twitter…and you won’t believe by who!

Thankfully, this guy was ready to call Acosta out on his nonsense.

CNN

In the mainstream media today, there are only a few things that seem certain:  CNN is going to cover for the Clintons, and Jim Acosta will do something tacky and classless.

It’s just inevitable that, when you put CNN’s Acosta in a room with anyone remotely involved with the Trump administration, he is going to find an opportunity to get belligerent.  It’s nearly as sure as the sun rising in the morning from the east.

Acosta’s combative antics have received scorn in the past from a number of critics, but, famously, he has been butting heads with both Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders of the White House Press Department.  Acosta, at all costs, wishes to make a name for himself by latching onto the unorthodox nature of the Trump Presidency as a way to misbehave when in front of a camera.

Acosta’s operating assumption is likely that he will finally get a stern retort from the man himself, and cement his legacy as some sort of liberal folk hero.

But, going into the second half of Trump’s second year on the job, Jim Acosta is simply off his rocker, as evidenced by an incident at a press briefing this afternoon regarding the vendetta attack on the Capital Gazette newspaper.

“This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief. Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job,” President Trump said.

”Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs. To the families of the victims there are no words to express our sorrow for your loss. Horrible, horrible event. Horrible thing happened,” he added.

The comments prompted Acosta to shout, “Will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people?”

The President did not respond.

Having failed in his quest to pester the leader of the free world, Acosta took to Twitter to pat himself on the back with this cringeworthy tweet:

If I roll my eyes any harder they’ll get stuck like that.

Thankfully, a former CNN producer was ready to call Acosta out on his nonsense.

Now, the only thing left to discover will be how far Jim Acosta’s tail will be tucked the next time he’s in a room with Steve Krakauer…or the President.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.
