Jim Acosta, CNN White House reporter, has a history of going at President Donald Trump since his Election Night victory. This time, at a press conference called at the White House, Acosta asked him, “Mr. President, haven’t you spread fake news yourself, sir?”
The exchange came after President Trump gave a speech condemning the Ku Klux Klan, white supremacists and neo-Nazis and Acosta asked if they could ask more questions and if the speech was a part of a press conference. President Trump said they finished their press conference and Acosta then asked if he had condemned white supremacists, which was included in Trump’s speech. After hearing another question from Acosta, President Trump told Acosta that he was “fake news.”
Does Jim Acosta relish in becoming the storyline within the story? With questions like those, it appears so.
