CNN’s Glory Boy was grandstanding during a Q&A in the East Room of the White House. President Trump wasn’t having it.
Jim Acosta was doing his ‘Look at me! I’m Jim Acosta!‘ routine during the post-election press conference. He began by condescendingly ‘Leftsplaing’ to the President that the Migrant Caravan wasn’t an invasion, and when President Trump wanted to move on, he started in on the still limping along Mueller investigation into Russian collusion.
Which is weird, really, since it hasn’t been making much news lately. Probably because there’s no ‘there’ there.
At one point, when the President said, ‘enough‘ and attempted to take another question, Acosta held onto the microphone and refused to give it to the young, female aide whose job it is to pass the microphone around.
That was when President Trump had it with Acosta’s antics.
President Trump wasn’t going to put up with Acosta’s bullying.
He called him out on his behavior, and it was beautiful.

It ranks right up there with the ‘You are Fake News’ moment.
I swear I’ll never get tired of that.
Of course, the Media (D) is circling the wagons and claiming that this is ‘dangerous’ rhetoric to ‘attack the press’, but their lack of self-awareness is just embarrassing at this point.
Now, that doesn’t mean that the press should be cozying up to the administration, but it would be nice to call balls and strikes on both sides.
The Media (D) was always left leaning, but they seem to have completely forgotten their job since the 2008 election campaign.
And you know if you call them out on it, they’ll deny it — just like a teenage girl.
Speaking of teenage girls, Jim Acosta has been busy retweeting posts supporting him.

"I think that's unfair. In @Acosta's defense, I've traveled with him and watched him, he's a diligent reporter who busts his butt like the rest of us."

Apparently, words are worse than actions to CNN.
Good to know.
Remember, these were the same people pearl-clutching over a joke gif tweeted by the President.
