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

Published

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.”

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”

The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.

Published

on

President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.

President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.

Where is Doctor Fauci?

Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.

Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.

Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.

As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.

Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
