“Listen, if they want to send me to hell, I’ll still be shouting at the devil, Jim Acosta July 2018
He must be crying, While doing a live report at President Trump’s rally in Tampa, Florida, CNN’s Jim Acosta had to deal with hecklers screaming CNN Sucks, Fake News, and Go Home.
“Wolf, just to give you a sense of what’s happening right now, you can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here in Tampa, Florida there, saying things like, ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news,’Wolf, obviously all of those things are false.We’re staying right here, we’re going to do our job and report on this rally for all of our viewers tonight,”
Actually, Jim, it’s not really CNN people are screaming at, they hate YOU. You are considered by conservative observers as the most unprofessional member of the White House press corps.
Just yesterday after a news conference in the Oval Office with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte the White House staff asked the reporters to leave. Rude Acosta started asking the president questions about Russian collusion, Guiliani, etc., so finally, the WH staffer raised her voice telling him, “Make your way out. Let’s go. Move, Jim, let’s go. Keep going, Jim, let’s go. Jim, we’re leaving. Come on, Jim. Go. We’re done,”
Acosta has a habit of asking the rude question at the wrong time. For example when the POTUS was having a photo op in the White House with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and took a few questions, and ended up tossing Acosta out on his butt. Or during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which brings kids from all over the country for an apolitical day for a day of fun. President Trump was sitting a table, coloring with his 12-year-old son, Barron, and other kids when Acosta shouted:
Mr. President, what about the DACA kids? Should they worry about what is going to happen to them, sir?”
Trump responded, saying Democrats let them down, and continued coloring with the children. The response wasn’t good enough for Acosta, the CNN star who spars with Trump and his surrogates on a regular basis.
“Didn’t you kill DACA, sir? Didn’t you kill DACA?” Acosta aggressively asked.
Perhaps it isn’t Acosta’s rudeness, maybe people hate Acosta because he hates Trump fans. When interviewed by Variety a few months ago he shared his not so humble opinion that Trump is faking his views and the public is either too crazy or too stupid to know the truth.
“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” the reporter said. “They’re not in on the act, and they take what he says very seriously, and they take attacks from [former White House press secretary] Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously. They don’t have all their faculties in some cases — their elevator might not hit all floors. My concern is that a journalist is going to be hurt one of these days.”
The truth is while the public is not pleased with any of the mainstream media, they weren’t heckling him in Florida because they don’t like CNN, they were heckling because they cannot stand CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. Watch the Video below.
