CNN’s Acosta Walks Out of Press Briefing, Whines on Twitter

Published

on

CNN’s prima donna White House beat reporter was not pleased with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders today, and took to Twitter to whine about his displeasure.

“I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened,” Jim Acosta wrote on Twitter. “Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn’t do it. Shameful.”

Sanders was asked if the press was the enemy of the people.

“The President’s rightfully frustrated,” she said. “Ninety percent of the coverage on him is negative despite the fact that the economy is booming, ISIS is on the run, and American leadership is being reasserted around the world.”

Sanders blasted the media for their refusal to cover President Donald J. Trump’s meeting in Florida with Gov. Rick Scott joined Trump and dozens of business leaders to announce thousands of new jobs. The press refused to cover the event in peevish protest.

After several more questions, Acosta began interrupting, asking if he could have a question and claiming that Sanders “attacked his organization.”

“You did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said when called upon. “I think it would be a good thing if you were to say right here at this briefing that the press, the people who are gathered at this briefing right now, doing their jobs every day, asking questions of officials like the ones you brought forward earlier are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”

Acosta has a difficult time taking a hint. First of all, he deserves nothing from the White House. He is not that important. Secondly, people hate Acosta and CNN, evidenced by how he was treated at Trump’s rally in Tampa this week. The people have decided that the press is their enemy, and they did it long before Trump was president.

“I think the President has made his position known. I also think that – I’m trying to answer your question, I politely waited and even called on you despite the fact that you interrupted me while your colleague was speaking,” Sanders said as Acosta interrupted her answer to his own question.

“It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when [the media] frequently lower the level of conversation in this country,” she said.

Sanders detailed examples of the media attacks on her personally, and noted that she was the only press secretary in history to need a security detail.

Acosta then snootily lectured Sanders about how the world was watching what she was saying, and how for “the sake of this Democracy” she should make it clear that the press is not the enemy.

“I appreciate your passion,” she said. “I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the President. He’s made his comments clear.”

Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.

The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.

In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.

Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”

Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
