Jim Acosta Interrupts Dr. Birx During Press Conference To Attack Trump

, , 51 Comments

Jim Acosta is out of control.

Fox News reports that the CNN White House Correspondent interrupted Dr. Deborah Birx during yesterday’s press conference so that he could go on an unhinged rant against President Donald Trump.

Obsessed Acosta

During a press conference yesterday, Dr. Birx was explaining why it took so long for a travel ban to be implemented over the Coronavirus. Mostly it was because no one knew COVID-19 could be transmitted between humans:

“I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban. It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission.”

But Jim Acosta couldn’t wait to interrupt the doctor. All he wanted to do was change the subject so that he could blast Donald Trump.

So Acosta interrupted the doctor, saying:

“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April.”

To this, President Trump quickly shut down Acosta, saying:

“It is going to go away. I said it was going away and it is going away.”

You can watch a video yourself uplaoded of the interaction by the Daily Caller:

Acosta Under Fire

This isn’t the first time Jim Acosta has tried to disrupt a press conference to attack Donald Trump. He also did it 3 days ago.

As a result, a lot of people are starting to get tired of Acosta’s disrespectful behavior. And they’re calling him out for it.

On Twitter, George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley bashed Acosta for his actions, stating:

“Jim Acosta’s interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN’s echo-journalism model is destroying the media’s credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.”

GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington also responded to Acosta’s interruption on Twitter as well, saying:

“.@Acosta just tried to mansplain to Dr. Birx.”
Needless to say, Acosta has all but destroyed his reputation with normal everyday Americans. He is so busy trying to go after President Donald Trump that he is completely destroying his career in the process.
Disrespectful people shouldn’t be allowed to go to White House press conferences. If he doesn’t have enough self-restraint to obey rules, then he deserves to be kicked out.

    Yes….if he can’t follow rules and be respectful. he should be BANNED from attending. Other reporters often try to speak over the president and that should be a reason to ban them too. OUR PRESIDENT IS OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF and deserves respect.

      I have found a good left hook to the mouth usually solves the problem for those that can’t be civil. Would someone in the press show some intestinal fortitude and simply put their fist in his mouth.

      Problem solved

      I would never call on him and if he interrupts excort him to the door. No one cares what he has to say. Totally biased. Doesn’t know how to ask a question that might solicit an informative response. Just a JERK.

    Acosta is a stupid jerk, and should be banned from any open meeting, especially a press conference. Why is he still permitted in a press conference? He has proved himself to be a total fool!

    Jim Acosta And the liberals are attacking our country. Their agenda is to overthrow this administration there by taking over our country. Acosta and the main stream media are the Democrats weapons of destruction. They are using their words as bullets and grenades. My father, a WWll Navy vet told me several years ago that after the war he work in Chicago and got involved in the Union and was sent to Washington. I don’t remember why he was sent there, but at that gathering the speaker said that they could never overthrow this country in hand to hand combat that what they need to do was start at breaking the family unit first, then religion and the American pride. He never trusted Unions after that. They have been breaking our families apart since and they will not stop until they are exposed. It would break my Dad’s heart if he could see what is happening today. Just let me add my father came home from war and lived the rest of his life having nightmares of what he seen over in the Pacific. So yes people like Acosta need to be exposed for what they are. They are the enemy of this great nation.

    Yes. He should be barred from attending press conference. He had this behavior in this past several times and will not changed, as the saying goes “Leopard never changes its spots”. Kicked him out.

    They all follow the money, therefore, if we take a look at which advertisers are supporting the news “show” he’s on and then we make a point of NOT BUYING their service or product… he will disappear. It really is that simple. Money dries up… Acosta dries up and blows away, much like a leaf on your lawn.

    Yes – Acosta should be removed from all press conferences. He only wants the camera on him and he will say anything to get his face out there and his name in every news outlet. Why are they even allowed in the same building with people that are fighting this virus? There should be a glass between them and the ones answering questions. The press should be required to wear masks – maybe if their faces were covered they would stop with the grandstanding.

    Jim Acosta is a distraction from reality, a disgrace to journalism, and a buffoon. He should be banned from opening his mouth at news conferences until he learns the art of common decency and decorum.

    Ban him from all Whitehouse press conferences. I haven’t watched CNN for a long time now. They tell news with a personal agenda with no regard for the truth.

    Acosta should be dragged out when he first speaks. We are all tired of him and he is being paid to go after President Trump and be is the most disgusting American to ever walk the halls and I wish someone would just get rid of him. CNN is just as worthless as Acosta. He better keep close eyes on his back.

    How much longer do we, the American people have to put up with the likes of Acosta? Trump tried to rid us of his presence once before and had to allow him back in. There has to be a way to rid the American people from listening to the garbage spouted out of Acosta’s mouth and the sooner, the better!!
