Jim Acosta just humiliated himself on national television yet again – And Donald Trump did NOT let him get away with it.
The CNN hack Acosta wasted the American public’s time by asking a horrid, gotcha question to President Trump at the White House presser yesterday. And Donald Trump really destroyed him for it.
Acosta’s Dumb Question
On Monday, President Trump was accompanied by Great American industry leaders who praised the administration and vowed to begin manufacturing gowns and medical supplies for our nation’s care givers. Trump’s press conference was an absolutely wonderful display of American patriotism.
But Jim Acosta had to go and ruin it by asking a biased question meant to trip up the president.
Of course, Donald Trump knew exactly what Jim Acosta was trying to do before the question had even been asked. But he allowed Acosta to ask the question anyway, saying “Go ahead. Let’s give it a shot.”
To which Acosta replied, “What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis over the last couple of months?”
Acosta’s question was so loaded and biased that even the woman sitting behind him rolled her eyes.
But Trump did’t lose his cool. He merely pointed out the extremely dishonest behavior of Acosta and moved on, saying:
“It’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN anymore. Instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that, you should ask a real question and other than that, I’m going to go to somebody else.”
