Leftist CNN Reporter Excoriated by Trump During Press Conferernce

Quote:
President Donald Trump chided CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a White House press conference Wednesday afternoon, calling him a “rude, terrible person” for hogging the microphone to share his opinion on multiple topics.

Trump called on Acosta, who began questioning the president over his use of the word “invasion” to describe the Central American migrant caravan traveling towards the U.S.

Following a back and forth over the caravan, Trump said, “Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better. Okay, that’s enough.”

Acosta attempted to ask another question, and a White House aide tried grabbing the microphone out of his hand.

“Pardon me, ma’am,” Acosta said.

The CNN reporter continued to hold the microphone to ask a question about the Russia investigation while Trump tried to move on to another reporter.

Finally, Trump snapped at Acosta.

“I will tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them–you are a rude, terrible person, you shouldn’t be working for CNN,” Trump said.

“You’re a very rude person, the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible, and the way you treat other people are horrible, you shouldn’t treat people that way.”

Trump moved on to another reporter, but Acosta stood up again and began asking Trump another question.

“Okay, just sit down, please,” Trump said. “When you report fake news, which CNN does, a lot, you are the enemy of the people.”

The filthy liberal news media despise Trump, only because, he does NOT fear them or kowtow to them, and the fact that Trump defeated Hillary Clinton is another reason why they hate Trump so much. -- the corrupt liberal news media NO longer has a news monopoly anymore, nor, .. do they wield the kind of power or influence they USED to decades ago.  Sad

Today, .. the liberal news media are nothing more than extensions of the modern democrat liberal socialist party's propaganda arm, and MOST informed people know it!  Cool

You just don't realize that there is no more rationalizing, reasoning or corrective sanctions to sanction from the radicalized left.

Whether right or wrong I agree with not allowing acosta access in the white house. He did not report the news, his agenda was to make the news.
Send in someone who will ask questions , have them answered then take his/her seat and allow other reporters time.  This gotcha, look at me reporting is old and a joke.

Accosta ought to go back to CNN and become an Opinion Journalist.  You certainly are correct, he is not a straight news reporter by any stretch of anyone's imagination.  He's a prima donna who makes himself the story on any particular day.

As is any doubt that Acosta has dropped any pretense of being a reporter and is now an advocate with an apparent interest in being the news, rather than reporting it.
