‘They’re Trying to…Shut Us Down’

CNN Gives Acosta Hero’s Welcome After Losing WH Credentials; ‘They’re Trying to…Shut Us Down’

You would expect no less from these self-absorbed, narcissistic cretins.

Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.”

Host Anderson Cooper welcomed Acosta on as the two sat inside CNN’s D.C. bureau and so Acosta first gave his account of when he tried to return to the White House grounds for a live shot slated for this same program.

With a smirk of contentment on Acosta’s face, Cooper then read through tweets from The New York Times’s Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman plus Reuters’s Jeff Mason and then this sanctimonious statement from CNN:

The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN’s White House chief correspondent Jim Acosta. It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today’s press conference. In an explanation, Press Secretary Sanders lied. She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.

      “Journey to the Center of Jim Acosta’s Ego” ROFLLLLL

      Seriously someone said this last night. “Can [Jim Acosta] not be a total clown for just one night?” http://archive.is/eTh1D The answer is no.

      Jim Acosta of CNN **just likes being confrontational** with Trump for the hell of it.

      Part 1. This is how a normal exchange works. A reporter asks a question, Sarah Sanders responds. People move on.
      Part 2. What happens when Jim Acosta asks a question. It turns into a theatrical drama. Know the difference.

      I wanna make it clear. It’s not just about yesterday’s incident when it comes to Jim Acosta. When it comes to his behavior, the writing is on the wall. http://archive.is/x823W http://archive.is/9ynFh Instead you should be surprised the White House put up with him for so long.
