CNN’s Jim Acosta has to be called out on the hypocritical aspect of tweeting a selfie and then turning around to say the press isn’t supposed to be the story. It’s no secret that Acosta is a grandstanding reporter who desperately tries to get his mug in the spotlight every time he’s at a press conference. He screams and yells at President Trump and bullies Sarah Sanders at the WH press conferences. He’s a media wh*re who is hell bent on making such an ass of himself that he makes it on the nightly news.

Before he appeared on “The Late Show” Wednesday night, he shot a selfie a la Stuart Smalley of Saturday Night Live. It was a super awkward photo that shows his lack of self awareness.

ACOSTA TO COLBERT: “Right, and we’re not supposed to be the story; that’s not why I’m out there. I get accused of that from time to time. And my attitude is, listen, I’m allowed to care about this country just as much as anybody else.”

On the Colbert show he defended his bullying style (SEE BELOW) of journalism:

“President Trump said ‘you’re fake news,’ and to me, when you insult our news organization and call us fake news, that’s calling on me for a question. He refers to CNN as fake news. I look at that as he’s calling on me for a question, so I am going to push back.”

“The foundation of  Trump’s political career was built on a lie that Barack Obama was not born in this country. So listen, you know these are tough times. There are some real tough questions to be asked. But I don’t, I don’t think we do ourselves any good, Stephen, if we shy away from these hard questions.”

“My goodness, the way I look at it is…and this is the debate I have with my fellow journalists when we talk about this…what if we just did nothing? Do we just sit back and do nothing in the face of that?” 

The selfie Acosta took before going on Colbert’s show has to be the funniest thing you’ll see all week!

SOCIAL MEDIA TOOK THE PHOTO AND RAN WITH IT…

OUR REPORT ON THE BATTLE BETWEEN SARAH SANDERS AND JIM ACOSTA – SARAH GOT THE BEST OF HIM!

CNN’s Jim Acosta is sadly mistaken…The White House press briefings are not about him and whatever agenda he has for calling attention to himself. He continues to distract and try and disrupt briefings so HE can be the clip of the night. It’s become come obvious that he’s got a big problem. Watch the video below where Sarah Sanders just lets him have it…You will looove this!

He pranced over to CNN and spoke with Brook Baldwin after this embarrassing moment at the White House:

What a whiner! CNN’s Jim Acosta ranted against President Trump’s “attacks” on the media today after he made a spectacle of himself by walking out of the White House briefing early. It’s so funny that he thinks he matters. He doesn’t.

He also suggested that reporters chant on Pennsylvania Avenue “we’re not the enemy of the people” in protest against President Trump…Haha! The funny part of this comes at the end when Brooke Baldwin says, “Amen” to Acosta’s rant. Ridiculous!

 

WFB reports:

Acosta walked out of the briefing in protest, although he returned to tell CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin afterward it was a sad moment.

“Sadly, Brooke, I think what you saw happen here at the end of that briefing was the true feelings of the president, the true feelings of many of the people that work in this administration laid bare,” Acosta said. “They believe … that the journalists who cover this White House, the journalists who work in this city, who were just trying a few moments ago to hold some of these officials accountable about attacks on our democracy, that the people here who work at this White House all the way up to the president evidently believe that journalists are the enemy of the people. Literally, the enemy of the people.”

Except for Ivanka Trump, Baldwin noted.

Acosta said he gave Sanders “several opportunities to set the record straight,” and she refused. Sanders noted she receives Secret Service protection because of threats she has received, and while he sympathized, Acosta said she and Trump continued to regularly tell lies and needed to be fact-checked.

“I’ll say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said. “And, you know, I think maybe we should make some bumper stickers, make some buttons, you know, maybe we should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue like these folks who chant ‘CNN Sucks and ‘Fake News,’ maybe we should go out, all journalists, should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue and chant, ‘We’re not the enemy of the people.'”

“Because I’m tired of this,” he went on. “Honestly, Brooke, I’m tired of this. It is not right. It is not fair. It is not just. It is un-American to come out here and call the press the enemy of the people, and Ivanka Trump knows that. I don’t know why her father doesn’t, and I don’t know why this press secretary doesn’t. I mean, she got yelled at at a restaurant in Virginia. I’m sorry about that. I feel badly for her that happened. That comedian at the correspondent’s dinner said some unpleasant things about her. I’m sorry about that. She ought to hear some of the things that were said to me the other night in Tampa … It would be nice if we all lowered the temperature a little bit but at the very least, I think we should all be able to agree on one thing, and that is the press is not the enemy of the people. Fellow Americans are not the enemy of fellow Americans, and, you know, forgive me for going on a rant, but I think that they’ve lost sight of that here at this White House.”

Baldwin said “Amen” to Acosta’s speech and appreciated “this is personal for you.”
