Jim Acosta Virtue Signals to Trump About Female Reporters. Trump Has Perfect Response.

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.

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.

“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.

Gretchen Whitmer Takes Heat For Marching With Protesters After Months Of Cracking Down With Social Distancing Orders

Published

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is taking a whole lot of heat after she decided to violate her own lockdown orders in order to march shoulder-to-shoulder with protesters in a march to support George Floyd who was killed at the hands of a law enforcement officer in Minneapolis. Whitmer was photographed participating in the event, sitting side-by-side with activists who were demanding that police brutality be brought to an end. The photograph has angered many residents, along with GOP Rep. Lynn Afendoulis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Social distancing is critical to stop the spread of COVID-19—unless you have a great photo op. ⁦And control,” Afendoulis tweeted. https://twitter.com/LynnAfendoulis/status/1268623499142279168 Whitmer maintained some of the strictest social distancing guidelines in the nation throughout the coronavirus pandemic, many of which are still in effect — including a mandate to maintain 6 feet of separation in public gatherings. A spokeswoman for Whitmer, Tiffany Brown, denied the governor violated her own social distancing guidelines by attending the protests. “The governor took precautions for engaging in an outdoor activity, including wearing a mask even though it is not required outdoors under the order,” Brown told the Detroit News. She also noted that the order included a provision that said: “Nothing in this order shall be taken to abridge protections guaranteed by the state or federal constitution.” Brown went on to add that “includes the right to peaceful protest. The state’s website has a FAQ section that says any protest requires participants to be six feet apart as per the usual social distancing guidelines. “Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the…

Stacey Abrams Says She’s Not Joined In Protesting So As Not To ‘Distract From Their Message’

Published

on

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams came out and stated that she’s not joined in the protests happening across her state because she’s afraid her presence will distract from the message being pushed by those who are putting on these events. Abrams, who failed to win the governorship of Georgia, appeared on CNN where she revealed the reason for her absence during an interview. “I appreciate the instinct of leaders to join in these protests, but too often, our presence distracts from their message,” she said. Reports indicate that Abrams is actually on the short list of potential vice president candidates for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Abrams did reveal that she’s helping the movement responsible for the protests by helping to secure money for bail and lawyers for those who are arrested. “I understand the instinct to be there. But having been on the other side, having been an activist and a protester, I have a very visceral reaction, and my conscience tells me I need to stay out of the way and let the attention focus on the demonstrators,” Abrams added. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: As a college student, Abrams helped lead protests after Los Angeles police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, a black construction worker, in 1992. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes. Floyd lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. It seems more likely that Abrams is just trying to keep herself out of trouble by not joining in on the protests. However, she’s definitely doing her part to keep the unruly chaos active by bailing out criminals and vandals, so perhaps it’s best she not show up…
