You know the story. President Trump slapped CNN’s Jim Acosta today.
“Let’s go to a real network,” Trump says, declining to take a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta during a joint press conference with U.K. PM Theresa May. He answered a question from Fox News instead #tictocnews pic.twitter.com/nTAxI2fKvV

Lefties are outraged that Trump “mistreated” Acosta in from of the international press like that. They’re also mad at John Roberts for refusing to defend Acosta in the moment. Like I wrote earlier, I don’t blame Roberts. If you know someone is tarnishing your profession, you’re not going to defend them.
Listen though. If you don’t think what Trump did is abhorrent, stop and think about what the world would be like if MSM only salivated over the President of the United States.
If you are cheering this, ask yourself what your life would be like with a media that only did things the president liked https://t.co/xkN2DvAcS6

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine it. We lived it for 8 years!
You people really have ZERO self awareness, do you. Go back and look at your reporting 08-16. Come back with some ACTUAL times you did anything Obama didn't like.

Ummmm, does the name “Obama” ring any bells?

We don't have to ask ourselves "What it would be like" as we lived it for the 8 year obama crime spree. pic.twitter.com/Mnf5UQFRjx

We don't have to ask. We lived it for 8 years under Obama.
But you knew that.

@jdawsey1 Fox criticizes Trump plenty. They just don't do it 24/7, which is what CNN, MSNBC & rest of MSM do. It gets tiring.

I lived through that. It was called The Obama administration.

Just like seeing you sycophants covering your chosen one for 8 years.
Glowing love stories, cover photos and general cultish behavior on a daily basis.

Guess you weren't living here from 2008-16?

I’m not asking for a press that drools over the president. I’m looking for a press that is devoted to TRUTH.
I realize that’s a complicated concept for you to grasp, Chris. Work through that.
