Quick! Someone get Jim Acosta, who CNN recently promoted to Chief White House Correspondent, a tissue and maybe even a diaper. After this exchange with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, he may just need both!
During Thursday’s White House press conference, Acosta, like clockwork, was obsessed with whether or not President Donald Trump watches FOX and Friends. I mean, the economy is booming, 81 companies (and counting) have announced bonuses, pay increases, and/or other benefits due to Trump tax cuts, and black unemployment is the lowest it’s been since unemployment started being tracked in 1972. But, hey, Acosta won’t let those great successes get in the way of his daily demonstration of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TPS), from which he obviously suffers.
Acosta obviously hasn’t realized that Sarah Huckabee Sanders ain’t Sean Spicer. She not only holds her own against the incredibly antagonistic press corps, she typically makes them look like fools. Today was no exception.
Check out this exchange when Acosta asked if there was a cause/effect relationship between Trump watching FOX and Friends, on CNN’s rival network FOX News, and his tweets about policy. Her response to Acosta is quick-witted and brutal.
As if he wasn’t embarrassed enough, Acosta then went on to appear on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin to whine about the exchange.
Boo freaking Hoo.
In addition to that tissue and diaper, you may want to also get Acosta some cheese to have with that whine.
