Jim Acosta is CNN’s White House Correspondent.
If you know anything about his behavior, that tells you volumes about the quality of CNN as an alleged news organization. Because Acosta is a an embarrassment to the network and to journalism in general. He constantly imposes himself during press briefings by not waiting his turn but yelling out questions, like an impatient child. And, because he is a left wing advocate rather than a real journalist, virtually every one of those questions has an anti-Trump spin to them.
On Sunday, there was a traditional Easter egg-roll on the White House lawn. There were children galore, and the idea, as it is on every Easter Sunday, was to forget politics and have fun.
Except there was Jim Acosta.
So, while President Trump was enjoying himself with children, this genius started shouting out questions about DACA.
“What about the DACA kids? Should they worry about what’s going to happen to them?”
Mr. Trump briefly answered that one. I’m sorry he did. But maybe he figured if he got it out of the way Acosta would stop.
If so, he was wrong. As Trump went back to the children he was with Acosta screamed out another DACA question – this one showing his true motives:
“Didn’t you kill DACA? Didn’t you kill DACA?”
This one, I am happy to say, Trump ignored.
That is how CNN’s White House Correspondent behaved at a “no politics, just fun with children” event. That is what he does. And it apparently is no problem at all to the network.
Bottom line: CNN has become a joke, and Jim Acosta is little more than a punch line to the joke it has become.
