CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Trump have a bit of a history. Acosta has been busted for reporting fake news about Trump and the President has no problem calling him out on it.
Back in January, the President turned to Acosta and told him to ‘get out’ during a White House Event. The exposed but brief exchange sent the reporter off whining about being treated unfairly.
According to the Free Beacon, after the conclusion of a White House event earlier this year, President Donald Trump responded to continued questions from CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta by simply pointing to the door and telling him, “out.”
The exchange occurred as Trump wrapped up a press conference with the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev. Acosta continued to pepper President Trump with questions about his immigration policies in the light of controversial statements the president was accused of making during a bipartisan immigration meeting last Thursday.
Well, it’s happened again. Jim Acosta arrogantly yelled questions at President Trump during a joint press conference in the UK, this week. This time Trump humiliated Acosta in front of the entire world. Take a look.
“Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?” Acosta asked Trump.
“[FOX News correspondent] John Roberts go ahead,” he said.
“Can I ask you a question?” Acosta persisted.
“No,” Trump told him.
“CNN is fake news,” Trump said. “I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN.”
“John Roberts from FOX, let’s go to a real network,” Trump said
“Well, we’re a real network too,” Acosta said, having the last word.
BOOM! The President humiliated the reporter by calling out his entire network for reporting incorrect information and then refused to give him a moment to speak. It wasn’t over, though, President Trump turned around to hit Acosta with a kill shot!
