Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald J. Trump, bulldozed CNN’s alleged reporter Jim Acosta during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.
“Can you promise that the President will tell the truth tonight? Will he tell the truth?” Acosta asked Conway.
Conway was not interested in Acosta’s condescension, and responded accordingly:
“Yes Jim, and can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention God to you? You know, Jim, make sure that goes viral. By the way, this is why I’m one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day. And let me get back in your face, because you’re such a smart ass most of the time and you want this to go viral. A lot of these people don’t like you. But let me just be respectful to the media at large as I always am. I explained that that was alternative information and additional facts, and I explained it many times. And don’t you put it back in my face, for the all corrections your network needs to issue. I was on your network 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who will even go on. And the disrespect that you show to me personally, I’ll just look past.
When Conway said “a lot of these people don’t like you,” she pointed to the rest of the press pool. Acosta babbled at Conway through her entire response.
Acosta had his White House press credentials revoked in November after placing his hands on a female intern who attempted to take the microphone from him at the direction of Trump. The credentials were subsequently restored.

OOPS: CNN Legal Analyst Suspended for Indecent Exposure During Zoom Call
A liberal journalist and CNN legal analyst has been suspended from his position at New Yorker magazine after he appears to have exposed his penis during a Zoom call.
Jeffrey Toobin reportedly revealed his genitalia during a teleconference call between New Yorker employees and personnel of a New York radio station. He says that the exposure was totally unintentional, and that he wasn’t aware his camera feed was streaming to other people.
The CNN pundit, who is known for delivering Russian collusion conspiracy theories, apologized for the wardrobe malfunction in a statement provided to Vice. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” said Toobin.
New Yorker spokeswoman Natalie Raabe went on to confirm that Toobin has been suspended as the matter is investigated. A CNN representative also confirmed that the media personality is on “time off” from on-air appearances with the channel.
This was almost certainly an unintentional mistake, although it’s an embarrassing and careless one.
I’d urge all the guys out there to avoid ever placing themselves in this situation, but most don’t need to be reminded to keep their pants on. One possible way to minimize the likelihood of this occurrence is doing so during teleconference calls.
Vice is now reporting that Toobin was caught outright masturbating during the zoom conference call.
“The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”
