CNN’s Jim Acosta Tries to Ask Trump a Question, Gets Shutdown Immediately

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a very tense relationship with various media outlets, chief among them, CNN. On numerous occasions he has taken aim at the news organization for their obviously biased coverage against him and their treatment of conservatives in general, referring to them as “fake news.”

CNN has done a fairly good job of actually earning this title, especially when blowing certain stories out of proportion or taking things out of context on a regular basis.

One of the network’s most egregious offenders is loud mouth reporter Jim Acosta. Acosta has a well earned reputation for being disrespectful, yelling, and all sorts of things at press conferences.

Acosta recently attempted to ask Trump a question during his visit to the UK, but it backfired badly.

CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to get the president’s attention during the presser, but Trump told him he was going to take questions from a “real” news outlet instead and then called on John Roberts from Fox News.

“John Roberts, go ahead, John,” Trump said.

“May I ask you a question?” Acosta interjected.

“No, John Roberts go ahead,” Trump repeated. “CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news.”

“Let’s go to a real network,” Trump added.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper complained about the display on Twitter, asserting, “Old enough to remember when other networks came to the defense of Fox News WH correspondents during the Obama years. Such did not happen here. Lesson for the kids out there: no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation it will ever be reciprocated.”

Ouch. Seriously. That’s going to leave one heck of a mark on Acosta’s inflated ego. In the long run though, that’s probably going to be good for him. Pride comes before the fall they say, so having his arrogance put in check might actually help him avoid making serious mistakes.

The whole point of the press is to hold elected officials accountable for their actions and policies by honest, fair reporting. By having a passionate dedication to the truth, no matter where it leads.

Unfortunately, modern day media is more concerned with sensationalism and with pushing a particular political agenda. Major outlets have become propaganda machines. That’s not what America needs. Americans are smart folk. We don’t need to be told what to think. Just give the facts and trust the people with what they are given.

WHAT. THE. HECK?? This sounds like kind of a big deal… From Daily Wire: Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned from the company on Thursday amid his alleged ties to a government operation, made bombshell accusations on CNN late on Thursday night, claiming that top FBI officials reached out to him in 2015-2016 to conduct law enforcement activities that turned out to be political espionage. Byrne appeared to indicate that the request came from FBI agents after it was passed down from a top FBI official, who he later says he learned was anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok. Byrne said that the political espionage operation targeted four candidates: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

VIDEO PROOF: Democrat Rep. Says We Need the Undocumented to Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’

Will the MSM care? Nah.

Imagine if New Jersey Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski – Who? – was a Republican. He would, unequivocally, beyond a shadow of a doubt, be forced to resign from office. No question about it. Here’s why… From Daily Wire: Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do. Malinowski noted, “We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take.” He added, “I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them.

She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they…
