President Trump skipped over the belligerent, confrontational, Democrat activist/CNN White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, during his Rose Garden press conference with Brazil president Jair Bolsaonaro. Acosta continues to demand the “fake news” media, whose sole purpose is to destroy President Trump and anyone tied to him, should be taken seriously. Meanwhile, in Trump’s efforts to expose the fake news media in America, he’s managed to force other nations to examine the agenda’s of their media outlets. Brazil’s conservative President Bolsaonaro surprised the rabidly left media pool when he called out the fake news media.
Acosta complained to his fellow fake news hosts on CNN that a reporter from The Daily Caller was called on, complaining that the question from the Daily Caller reporter was a softball question and that he “teed up” Brazil’s president to blast the fake news media. CNN has been caught pushing multiple fake news stories. Last week, it was announced that CNN is being sued for $250 million by 16-year-old Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic student who was smeared and attacked by media outlets like CNN for the crime of wearing a MAGA hat in public.
Acosta told the fake news CNN hosts, “The question was asked in a way that really teed it up, uh, like a game of tee-ball here in the Rose Garden. The president was just sort of served up a softball there. When the president of Brazil mentioned the term ‘fake news,’ he got sort of a smile and a nod from President Trump. And, you know, this is something that we’ve seen since President Trump came into office, called this network fake news, has referred to the press as the enemy of the people and so on is that this is a virus that is spreading around the world.”
Acosta continued to whine, “When you have the President of Brazil calling the press fake news, uh, he is — he is trying to uh, essentially, you know, in a sycophantic sort of way, suck up to the President of the United States. I mean, there’s no other way of putting it and trying to emulate him down, as they call him in Brazil, as the Trump of the tropics. You know this is — this is another example of when the President of the United States says something here in the U.S. referring to the press as fake news, referring to the press in other derogatory terms, other leaders around the world, other governments around the world are listening.”
President Trump blasted the censorship of conservatives on Facebook and Twitter during his press conference.

Acosta addressed his comments with the hosts.
“He likes to talk about how there’s this media collusion game that is stacked against him when he has one of the most powerful social media voices out there. So I think that has to be said as well, it has to be put on the record.”
Acosta, with absolutely no evidence to back up his claim, made one of the most outrageous claims of the day, telling his co-hosts that conservatives aren’t really being discriminated against and that they really have an even playing field when it comes to getting their message out on social media. “Conservatives aren’t being discriminated and abused on social media. They have just as much of a landscape that they dominate as the left does—and one could argue that they have a much bigger footprint.”
Yeah, okay, Jim. Tell that to the thousands of major conservative Facebook and Twitter accounts that have been shut down without ever receiving an explanation.
