Poor Jim Acosta, he is such a jerk, and every day he proves it to the world. Today the clown-prince of the White House press corps lied about President Trump again and got royally beaten up on Twitter.
After President Trump’s immigration speech, Acosta tweeted:
Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: “These are frivolous claims.”
— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) May 16, 2019
I wonder if Acosta’s pants caught fire because that isn’t what the POTUS said. What President Trump said was the legitimate asylum seekers are being hurt by the illegitimate ones:
“Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims….My plan expedites relief”
The President’s campaign committee started the smackdown.
How can you do this and go home at night thinking you've turned in an honest day's work as a journalist?

But they were too kind compared to the other comments…well compared to SOME of the other comments. This first guy seemed to worry about Acosta’s health:
Jim go to therapist pls

This is exactly why he says you’re an enemy of the people.

Acosta is also the enemy of legitimate reporters who care about the truth and doesn’t make themselves the center of each story.

Jim .. you show how stupid you are everyday … time for CNN to get a real reporter … instead of a slow animal like you..

Jim, you’re not nearly as good at this as you think.
— #That’sTrue (@PaulWDrake) May 16, 2019
He’s not even nearly as good as I think, and I think he’s awful!

Jimmy’s mental condition gets the best of him again. Your feelings don’t care about facts.

Have you noticed there are a lot of people who think Acosta is crazy?
And he goes home feeling fulfilled and expect to get his pay-cheque for peddling falsehood in the name of journalism.

It’d be nice if CNN hired ANY real reporters!! pic.twitter.com/QJ9T7b0CEj

He takes the sh*t from his diaper and calls it the truth.

Dear Diary, I lied again and was caught. I’ll say that it is because the bad man doesn’t like me and deflect from the fact that I blatantly lied when there was video there.

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 conservative observers as the most unprofessional member of the White House press corps, and his fellow WH reporters don’t like him either.
