CNN's Acosta Now Claims His Press Pass Was Revoked For Telling The Truth
The MSM thinks they are doing America this great service with the way they report things with an overly Left-wing bias. They spin and contort the news until it is hard to fully understand what happened. That's why Trump calling them fake news makes so much sense. CNN's Jim Acosta is no different when it comes to manipulating the truth. The NY Times published an opinion piece where the author claims journalists were not hard enough on Trump. Acosta saw this and immediately decided to toot his own horn, rewriting the past to make himself look like some heroic journalist fighting untruths at any cost. Acosta now claims that his White House Press Pass was revoked for correcting Trump's lies and calling out his xenophobia...
Acosta boasting about his previous "plight" posted the following:
"With all due respect, the WH seized my press credentials after I called out Trump’s xenophobia when he referred to a migrant caravan as an invasion. Some of us were calling out his lies, his racism, and dealt with serious death threats along the way. Inaccurate to say otherwise."
First off that's not how it happened at all. Acosta was being rude, as per usual, talking over Trump and trying to ask multiple questions. He tried to insinuate there was not a problem with the massive horde of migrants trying to enter our country illegally. Acosta pointed out that there were photos where illegals were climbing over our border walls and he said that it wasn't happening. Trump said they were not actors and it was happening. Acosta then claimed it was not an invasion for illegals to enter our country in large groups...He then pulled out some more fake news asking about the Russian investigation.
Trump then rightfully came down on Acosta calling him rude and a reporter of fake news.
Watch The Interaction Below.
In contentious exchange on migrant caravan, Russian investigation, Pres. Trump tells CNN's Jim Acosta, "I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN...Put down the mic."

Acosta was out of line. He was treating the president of the United States disrespectfully and even hit the arm of the aid that was trying to take the mic. He was also speaking out of turn. He was not calling out xenophobia or Trump's "lies" as he claims. Trump is not xenophobic, he just wants to keep Americans safe, that's called good leadership, something Dems don't seem to grasp. But I am sure Acosta also claims he walks on water and his s*** doesn't stink.
