Jim Acosta, CNN’s number one harasser of President Trump and his administration got shot down Friday with a brutal response from the President himself.
Acosta tried to ask President Trump a question during a joint press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May. “Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?
Trump slapped him down immediately. “No.” Acosta continued to badger Trump, resorting to begging to ask a question. Finally, Trump had enough.
“CNN is fake news,” Trump said. “I don’t take questions from CNN.”
If Trump’s rebuttal wasn’t enough of an insult to CNN, he then turned to Fox News anchor John Roberts and said, “let’s go to a real network.”
As Roberts proceeded to ask Trump his question a familiar voice arose from the background. “Well we are a real network too sir,” Acosta claimed.
It was only last month where Acosta was publicly shushed after he repeatedly hurled questions at President Trump during his speech.
We should also not forget that during President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Acosta tried shouting out questions at the two leaders at a very inappropriate time.
