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.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Published

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
