Jim Acosta is getting roasted for his latest absurd attack on President Trump

Published

on

It’s no secret CNN’s chief White House correspondent is no fan of President Trump.

Trump regularly slams Acosta and CNN as “fake news” during high profile events.

But Jim Acosta is getting roasted for his latest absurd attack on President Trump.

In a story headlined, “Source: Trump is concerned about coming into contact with people infected with coronavirus,” Acosta cited a single anonymous source “close to” President Trump who said Trump is uneasy after being around a Brazilian official who later tested positive for coronavirus.

Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor told Fox News, “This is the most idiotic thing I’ve seen all week. And this week that’s saying something. Of course, ‘Trump is concerned about coming into contact with people infected with coronavirus.’ We all are. And we’re all supposed to be. That’s how you stop a virus, by being concerned about who you interact with and taking precautions.”

“I know Jim Acosta hates Trump. But this is even stupid for one of the most ridiculous figures in the history of journalism. What’s amazing is Acosta isn’t even good at trolling Trump. All he does is embarrass CNN and further degrade the news industry,” Gainor continued. “CNN is trying to hurt Trump and divide our country in a time of national crisis.”

DePauw University Professor and media critic Jeff McCall told Fox News, “That CNN and it’s White House correspondent want to make a big deal out of a normal concern is just more indication of their wide-ranging agenda to pester the Trump administration.”

“Any sensible person would prefer to avoid the virus, so reporting that Trump is concerned is really a ‘so what?’ moment journalistically,” McCall said. “Using an unnamed source to leak this story when there are plenty of on-the-record sources available to the media to discuss the matter is also curious. Given the many other important aspects of the COVID-19 situation that need attention, this comes off as a real journalistic tangent and waste of time.”

Fox News noted the president publicly downplayed the incident, telling reporters he wasn’t concerned as he tries to keep from stirring up unnecessary panic and hysteria.

But, Acosta tried to take a shot at President Trump by noting he’s germaphobe and is uncomfortable being around people who may have coronavirus.

In reality, there’s probably not a single American who isn’t concerned about being around someone who’s sick.

    Acosta Is a perfect fit for CNN – Constant Nonsense News! They simply march out the dumbest people on earth, pretend they are journalists or opinion commentators and live off the past, actually about 40 years ago. If it wasn’t so pitiful, it would be funny, you know, false sincerity. Delusional, they think their ratings are a sign of their influence because they have the charts upside down. Fools, you’re tanking!

    cure for acosta and his attitude.

    Put a dog training collar on him when he enters the area where PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE.

    Put it on medium, then let him ask a question.

    IF he is respectful, nothing happens.

    IF he is obnoxious he gets a 5 second hit and it gets switched to high.

    Then let him ask another question.

    Did I mention putting a second collar on his testicles?

    sorry, I meant to.

    Yes . . . much like watching Jim Acosta jumping up and down and waving his arm on the right side of a Border Wall and saying stuff like, “seek, no hoards of folks coming over here”! This at a time when we were inundated by hoards of people everywhere that “lacked” a Border Wall. He is a nitwit and apparently suits CNN psyche perfectly!!

    I liked Crusty Old Geezer’s way of taking care of Acosta. It is too bad that he thinks he is so great, he doesn’t look bad but that is all he has to offer.

    Does CNN really and truly pay this guy to embarass them over and over again! It is too comical to be serious news and no one believes what CNN and MSNBC are spewing out on the air anymore! The only reason “anyone” watches anymore is just to see how big a lie they can spin today that will hit them like a pie in the face later today! That is how quickly what they come up with is found to be a total LIE!

    Crusty Old Geezer: I doubt Acosta has any to attach a second collar around.

CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good

Published

Tucker Carlson isn’t afraid to speak the truth, especially when everybody else is afraid to.

That makes him a major enemy to fake news networks like CNN.

And now CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good.

With coronavirus forcing most of America into quarantine in their homes, anti-Trump news networks are working overtime to pump out anti-Trump propaganda.

They are constantly spreading lies to allege that Trump has allowed the virus to spread, and that every coronavirus-related death is his fault.

But in making these claims the network is outright ignoring many inconvenient truths, as Tucker Carlson pointed out on a recent airing of his Fox News show.

Carlson played a number of video clips showing officials in New York City, where the virus has hit the hardest, downplaying the virus, and even encouraging people not to practice social distancing, which Trump has championed.

In a clip from February 2, New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot touts their preparedness for the virus, and encourages people to continue their lives like normal, even attending an upcoming parade.

“The risk to New Yorkers for Coronavirus is low and our preparedness as a city is very high,” Barbot begins. “There is no reason not to take the subway, not to take the bus, not to go out to your favorite restaurant, and certainly not to miss the parade next Sunday. I’m going to be there.”

Carlson also plays a clip featuring Democrat New York state Senator John Liu stating that “there’s really no need to panic and to avoid activities that we always do as New Yorkers” and that “diseases originate from anywhere or from particular places in the world.”

Along with Liu, Carlson also plays a clip from another Democrat New York State Representative Brian Kavanaugh, who insisted “it is very important that we ensure that we don’t have misinformation and many in the media have been covering this issue as if it’s, you know, a terrible plague that people have to avoid.”

Finally, Carlson details a number of Tweets from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that he posted in earlier in March, encouraging New Yorkers to “go out on the town despite coronavirus.”

If CNN were an honest network, they would talk about facts like these.

But of course, they aren’t an honest network, and only care about smearing President Donald Trump, even when the claims they make aren’t actually true.

Do you approve of President Trump’s response to Coronavirus?

This prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus crisis that will leave you speechless

Published

Fake news CNN is peddling panic and hysteria in hopes of boosting their abysmal ratings.

At the same time, they are desperately trying to push a narrative they think will hurt President Trump in November.

And this prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus that will leave you speechless.

CNN has been consistent in their messaging since the onset of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S.

In their biased view, President Trump does not know what he is doing and is single-handedly responsible for all of the heartache, suffering, and death that has come with this pandemic.

CNN also makes sure to remind their audience that Trump acknowledging the origin of the virus – China – makes him a racist.

On Monday night, CNN prime time host Chris Cuomo responded to Trump’s daily coronavirus task force briefing, where Trump said, “Unfortunately, the enemy is death. It’s death. A lot of people are dying, so it’s very unpleasant. It’s a very unpleasant thing to go through.”

Cuomo responded, “He said the enemy is death. The enemy is not death. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, division . . . These are all the things this virus is testing in our society as much as it’s testing our bodies.”

While Trump has been working to give daily updates and provide Americans with much needed facts and sobering information, Cuomo took the time to push the Fake News Media narrative forward and insinuate that Trump and his administration are the enemy of the United States.

Cuomo was partially right in one respect. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, and division – but not coming from the Trump administration.

All of those things have come out of communist China’s propaganda machine amid the coronavirus and America’s Fake News Media is running with it because they hate President Trump and want to see him defeated in November.

The real enemy all along has been and still is the Fake News Media and people like Chris Cuomo who have sowed seeds of division in our country for years and worked directly to push the radical Left’s agenda on American people.

Now they’re pushing communist China’s agenda. And at what cost?

Donald Trump silenced Jim Acosta with these three words

Published

Fake news CNN’s so-called “reporter” Jim Acosta is everything that is wrong with the media.

But on Monday, Acosta finally got his just deserts.

And Donald Trump silenced Jim Acosta with these three words.

Donald Trump holds daily White House press briefings on his administration’s response to the coronavirus.

Reporters have a chance to ask the President of the United States anything they want in hopes of extracting useful information that will better inform the American people as to the trajectory of the war against the coronavirus.

Instead, grandstanders like Jim Acosta still try to create viral “moments” by asking the President “gotcha” questions they know will create a confrontation.

That happened on Monday when fake news hack Jim Acosta questioned the President about past statements Trump made about the government’s ability to contain the coronavirus.

“If you look at those individual statements, they’re all true. Stay calm, it will go away. You know it is going away. And it will go away. And we’re going to have a great victory,” Trump responded.

The President explained that Acosta showboating for the cameras instead of doing real journalism is why no one watches CNN.

“It’s people like you and CNN that say things like that, that — it’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN anymore. You can ask a normal question,” the President added.

Finally, President Trump blew up Acosta by telling the fake news smear merchant that he asked a “nasty, snarky question” when his time could have been better served trying to draw out information from the President that the American people actually need.

“Instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that, you should ask a real question and other than that, I’m going to go to somebody else,” the President concluded.
