Jim Acosta can’t stop hurling whiny insults at President Trump. In a press conference on Monday, the CNN White House reporter commandeered the administration’s announcement on its Chinese trade investigation to chide the president for not meeting the media’s timetable in denouncing hate groups.
“Mr. President, can you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?” Acosta said, referring to Trump who condemned “all hate” by both sides. (The media forgets that there are two sides to every story.)
President Trump reminded Acosta that “they have been condemned” and proceeded to tell Acosta to cut it out:
“I like real news, not fake news. You’re fake news. Thank you, everyone.”
But getting in a parting shot, Acosta shouted back, “With all due respect, Mr. President, haven't you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?”
Acosta’s tantrum got exactly zero criticism from his CNN colleagues, like Brooke Baldwin, who rolled her eyes at the mere suggestion of being associated with fake news and showed much disgust that Trump didn’t condemn violence in a way she approves.
But here’s the real question: Where was all of this media outrage when Antifa was smashing people in the head with bike locks, or burning down buildings, or throwing rocks and bottles at police officers? Why didn’t they hunt down President Obama and ask why he never condemned leftist violence? It’s always crickets among the press when the Left attacks or kills, but by golly, Trump is the grand dragon of the KKK right now.
