Acosta made these comments at a panel with other White House correspondents…
(MRC TV) I would compare CNN’s Jim Acosta to a worm, but that might be offensive to actual worms.
One day after Acosta was kicked out of the Oval Office by President Trump after trying to prove somehow that Trump is a racist — and in the same day Trump released his “Fake News Awards” — Acosta joined a panel of other White House correspondents at the Newseum in Washington D.C. to discuss the state of the media and, of course, Trump.
After being asked by a POLITCO reporter what they thought about Trump’s “Fake News Awards,” Acosta took the reigns and spoke as if he had some sort of courage.
Here’s what Sour Grapes Boy had to say:
“I would say, having been called fake news myself, that the President of the United States is the king of fake news. He is the king of fake news. He said Barack Obama was not born in this country. He said Mexican are rapists and criminals. He has said many things. He has said he lost the election because undocumented people voted by the millions. He said that he had the largest inauguration crowd of all time. The list goes on and on…”
I’m sorry — not really — but it’s super laughable for Acosta to say that he’s not saying those things out of animus towards Trump. He literally was kicked out of the Oval Office the day before giving these remarks. If Acosta is trying to pretend that he’s some kind of unbiased journalist, he’s failing miserably…
