Video of the day! CNN’s Jim Acosta just got a smackdown from President Trump on the world stage:
Jim @Acosta tried to ask @realDonaldTrump a question to which he responded: “@CNN is fake news, I don’t take questions from CNN.”
He then called on John Roberts of @FoxNews saying “let’s go to a real network”
Acosta can be heard saying “well we are a real network too, sir.”

Jim Acosta is probably fuming but loving the attention from POTUS. He knows President Trump isn’t a fan of fake news CNN so this was the usual attempt to get a clip on the news and nothing more.
Acosta recently yelled a question from the back of the room at the White House. The video exposed his attempt to call attention to himself knowing the president couldn’t even hear his question:
CNN’s Jim Acosta continued his track record of bad behavior towards President Trump today when during a gathering at the White House he yelled from the back of the room towards the president: “Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people.” It’s obvious that Acosta yelled out from the back of the room for the benefit of the cameras and nothing more. This was clearly a publicity stunt that fell flat on its face…

President Trump was speaking about the tragic shooting in Maryland that had NO POLITICAL CONNECTION AT ALL. The media and the left have tried their best to make the shooting about President Trump AS SOON AS IT HAPPENED. President Trump spoke in the video below about the tragedy and then Acosta yelled from the back of the room towards the end of his comments.
“Before going any further today, I want to address the horrific shooting that took place yesterday at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland. This attack shocked the conscience of our Nation, and filled our hearts with grief…”

Acosta tweeted out that “several” people shushed him but you can see in the video that there was one person who turned around to tell him to be quiet:
President Trump calls out the media when they put out fake news…that’s it. It was way past time for someone to call them out so President Trump stepped up. It’s been a brutal battle that only this POTUS can win.
It’s pretty ironic that the media immediately latched onto this horrible shooting and made it all about President Trump…MORE FAKE NEWS!
Jim Acosta continues to disrupt events and press conferences at the White House…we believe it’s time to replace him with someone who there to report and not make it about themselves.
