Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta.
As Ben Shapiro often says, find you someone who loves you like Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta.
Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta so much, he took the opportunity to ask President Trump during a press conference at the UN if Trump would give his next question to a female reporter, instead of, you know, simply giving a female reporter an opportunity to ask the next question instead of Jim Acosta.
Jim Acosta was likely incredibly please with Jim Acosta for thinking of saying this.
Trump, on the other hand, whether consciously or not, totally called his bluff and had the perfect response: “Sure, whatever.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Acosta received a question from the president at a press conference at the United Nations in New York City on Wednesday. Before asking his question, Acosta demanded that the next question go to one of his female colleagues in the press corps.Advertisement - story continues below
“If you don’t mind, after I’m finished if … one of our female colleagues could go after me that would be great,” Acosta said.
Trump appeared confused and asked, “What does he mean by that?”
“What does that mean?” he repeated. “What does it mean, no, what does it mean?”
Acosta explained, “It would be great if a female reporter asked you a question about this issue,” referring to the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Trump replied with a shrug and a bit of an eye roll. “Wouldn’t make any difference to me.”
I don’t get CNN and Jim “We Are Real News, Sir” Acosta. They’re always whining about how Trump calls them “fake news”, and yet they use their opportunity to ask the President a question to shamelessly show their partisan colors.
Is Acosta a reporter, a commentator, or the Politically Correct police?
Trump’s response was, of course, perfect because, it truly makes no difference whether a female reporter asks him a question or not. That’s what equality is. The press pool is obviously full of female reporters, and when it comes to the hot news topic du jour, Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accusations, a woman is no more capable of extracting the truth than the president.
That’s how truth works.
