CNN’s Acosta Loses It, Tells Trump Supporter ‘F*** You’ on Twitter
After more than a year of being embarrassed by President Donald J. Trump and his supporters for spreading fake news and constant whining, a CNN White House correspondent reached his breaking point Thursday.
“F*** you,” Jim Acosta said to Justin Caporale, a Trump supporter and former director of operations for first lady Melania Trump.
Peter Hasson of The Daily Caller was granted access to Caporale’s Twitter account to verify that the message was real, and not photoshopped.

Apparently. the following exchange set Acosta off:
“Tonight the Trump campaign/WH turned up the music so loud the press risers were vibrating. Nearly impossible to do live TV. I suppose the WH loves those kinds of shenanigans. But I wonder if it’s a security concern for concern for USSS or local law enforcement. They can’t hear either,” Acosta said on Twitter.
“Dear Diary….” Caporale responded.
The “Dear Diary” troll is often directed at Acosta, whose Tweets tend to have a whiny, reflective nature.
Caporale later provided an update showing that Acosta had blocked him on Twitter.
Finally, he made one more demand of the CNN pencil pusher.
“Acosta you owe me an apology,” he Tweeted.
