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.

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.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…

Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse

This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
