CNN’s Jim Acosta is back to disrupting White House press conferences again.
But this time, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany put him in his place…
During yesterday’s conference with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Acosta got into a heated exchange with her. The hardcore liberal extremist Acosta claimed that Donald Trump deserves to be censored by Twitter, according to video footage released by The Hill.
Acosta Calls For Censorship
In a statement, Acosta went on a long-winded rant claiming that Donald Trump has tweeted thousands of misleading tweets, and that he should be punished for it:
“This president has made so many false and misleading statements that you know has put fact-checkers to work across the world…he’s uttered some 18,000 false and misleading statements, according to the Washington Post.”
Acosta stopped just short of calling Donald Trump a liar. And then he took his claims even further, and insinuated that Donald Trump and the White House were trying to silence fact-checkers by going after Twitter:
“Aren’t you trying to silence fact checking by going after Twitter like this?”
McEnany Shuts Acosta Down
But instead of taking Acosta’s bait, McEnany pointed out that the real people who deserve to be fact-checked are the mainstream media themselves:
“If you’re going into the fact checking business, there is no one that should be fact checked more than the mainstream media that has been continually wrong about a number of things.”
McEnany then went down a long list, in detail, of the issues the liberal media has been wrong about:
“Let me give you a list of the most egregious ones…”
McEnany then pointed to ABC’s false claim that Trump directed Michael Flynn to collude with Russia. Although we now know that never happened:
“ABC News in December of 2017 that falsely reported that Flynn would testify that the president directed him during the campaign to make contact with the Russians? That was false.”
McEnany pointed to CNN’s numerous instances of fake news:
“In 2017, your network, CNN botched their Wikileaks email exclusive and were forced to make on-air corrections. CNN’s Jim Sciutto, another CNN one, dropped a fictional bombshell in 2018 in July claiming that Michael Cohen would tell federal investigators that the president knew of the Trump Tower meeting.”
McEnany then stopped and pointed out that there are many more, and that it’s not just CNN who’s fake news:
“There are many more. Not to just put the onus on CNN there. So if anyone needs to be fact-checked, I think it should be the media.”
Acosta then lost it completely, saying that unlike the media, Donald Trump purposely spreads “lies” to the American public.

Get Rid Of Acosta
The fact that Jim Acosta is calling for for the president of the United States to be censored over “fake news” is absolutely nuts. This guy has told more lies than anybody, but you don’t see anyone fact-checking him!
Jim Acosta is another failed journalist who is using his influence at CNN to try to destroy Donald Trump. These people want to see our country and our president fail. It’s as simple as that.
McEnany was absolutely right to call him out. These attempts to silence the president are disgusting. If anyone should be silenced, it’s fake news reporters like Acosta.
