Jim’s so vain, He probably thinks that summit’s about him.
He’s sooo vain (so vain!) I’ll bet he thinks that summit’s about him. Don’t you? DOOOON’T YOU?!
Ok. Now that I got my Carly Simon out of the way, let’s discuss the topic at hand: Jim Acosta is a complete and utter knob. And yet AGAIN… he’s made it his business to BE the news, as opposed to REPORT the news. He simply can’t help himself.
According to Fox News:
CNN’s Jim Acosta on Thursday bemoaned the fact that President Trump didn’t call on him during a news conference after the abrupt end of the Hanoi summit between the U.S. and North Korea.
Note that Jim asks idiotic, opinion-filled “questions” every time. Maybe Trump realized the Hanoi Summit wasn’t the place to let this little man grandstand?
During a segment following the news conference, Acosta asserted that Trump may have avoided White House press corps journalists in an effort to dodge questions about Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, who testified Wednesday on the Capitol Hill.
UHHH. THAT RIGHT THERE IS WHY YOU DIDN’T GET CALLED ON, YOU MAGGOT.
How would that be appropriate when Trump is dealing with a man who is in EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD a national security threat?
He DID talk about it – but maybe he KNEW you would turn this into a CRAP SHOW – because you ALWAYS DO.
CNN’s Jim Acosta complains Trump didn’t call on U.S. press: “He was calling on reporters from Russian state media, Chinese state media, Sean Hannity from FOX”
Trump called on reporters from ABC, Bloomberg, CBS, Fox News, NPR, NYT, WashPost

PS is it me, or does Acosta look particularly disheveled? Take a damn comb to your hair, you slob.
“First of all, we have to point out the obvious, which is the president steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and instead selected journalists at random from the other side of the room, where foreign journalists were seated.”
Yea. That’s not right. But he tweeted about it anyway:
UUHHH but he DID take questions from American journalists. Just not from YOUR slovenly a$$.
But Acosta didn’t mention that Trump called on at least two journalists from the White House press corps, including CBS’s Major Garrett – who was the first reporter called on – and ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who quizzed Trump on Cohen’s testimony.
“[Michael Cohen] lied a lot,” Trump said in response to the Cohen testimony, which occurred in Washington, more than 13,000 miles from Hanoi. “But it was very interesting because he didn’t lie about one thing, he said, ‘no collusion with the Russian hoax.’”
Other U.S.-based outlets that also questioned Trump included the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, and Bloomberg.
So it’s not like he only spoke to “Trump-friendly” outlets.
Acosta just can’t wrap his little brain around the fact that he’s not the only “reporter” that matters.
