I wonder if Jim Acosta realizes that in his case it IS personal. Very few people in the administration like or respect him. He is considered by most people I know (including liberals in the media) as the most unprofessional member of the White House press corps. And he’s proven it again. The CNN White House reporter accused President Trump of ‘xenophobia’ for pointing out the foreign origins of the coronavirus, despite saying the same thing himself weeks earlier. Acosta calls Trump racist
In an address to the nation from the Oval Office Wednesday night, the President updated Americans on what steps his administration is taking in order to blunt the spread of the disease.
Trump noted – accurately – that the coronavirus outbreak “started in China” and that the White House was embarking on “the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history.”
Acosta reported back to his equally unintelligent colleague Chris Cuomo at anti-Trump headquarters, and declared the President’s perfectly correct statements to be – you guessed it – racist!
“The other thing, Chris, that I think we should point out, at one point during the address the president referred to the Coronavirus as a quote, ‘foreign virus,’” Acosta recorded for his diary.
“That, I think, was interesting because I was talking to sources this evening, one of the points that the president wanted to make tonight, wanted to get across to Americans is that this virus did not start here…”
Why doesn't he complain about
West Nile Virus
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
or any other diseases named after the places they were first detected
