Trump Gestures to CNN Reporter Jim Acosta to Get “Out”

 In opinion, Politics

After a White House press conference with Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev, CNN’s Jim Acosta ran afoul of President Trump in what can only be described as an attempt to trap the President into making a racist remark in front of a foreign dignitary. He pressed the President about the “S***hole” remark instead of asking about anything related to the press conference with Kazahkstan. Trump gestured to the reporter to get out of the Oval Office.

Acosta has not been the President’s favorite journalist for some time. According to the Free Beacon, he asked, “Did you say that you wanted more people to come in from Norway?” He had to know that the whole thing would go downhill from there.

“I want them to come in from everywhere. Everywhere.” President Trump said.

“Just caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people from other parts of the world? Where there are people of color?” Acosta asked.

That was the straw that broke the camel’s back- it was a backhanded attempt to paint the President as racist.

A press aide said, “Thank you, Jim” in an apparent attempt to make him understand that he was done. The President simply pointed to the door and said “Out.”

And Jim Acosta was upset. Gee, how could that be? He certainly knew that he had pushed his luck and upset the President. But in his tweets afterward, he feigned indignation, as if he were the innocent party. Spare us the drama.

 

The pinned tweet on Acosta’s Twitter account talks about countries that have state run media being places people don’t want to live.

It’s not-so-thinly-veiled remark that accuses Trump of trying to control the media because of the references to “fake news.” Should we ask Mr. Acosta if those countries are “s***hole” countries?

    Acosta is a tabloid news hack that has become completely irrelevant. He should thank Trump, if it wasn’t for Trump Acosta would be reporting on pot holes in the streets of Washington DC .
