Jim Acosta's Whine

Watching CNN

If the media can dish it out, they should be prepared to take it.

Tuesday night, at a Trump rally in Tampa, Fla., Jim Acosta complained about the crowd booing him, even making it part of his on-air bit with Wolf Blitzer.

“You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here — saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home’ and ‘fake news,’ ” Acosta complained.

Trump supporters did not accost the Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders crowds in the same way. But no matter, Trump was repeatedly labeled a Nazi and racist on networks like CNN, without challenge.

Republican congressman Steve Scalese and two others were shot just last year by a left-wing activist in Alexandria, Va. No, CNN, it is not President Trump who has whipped the crowd up against the media, it is the media.
Then, in what has become a ritual with Acosta, he signed off with some virtue-signalling and then gave a nod to his own, insurmountable dedication to journalism in the face of danger.

“We’re staying right here,” he declared from a heightened riser and separated from the crowd by a steel fence. “We’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers tonight.”

He wasn’t done though. He tweeted some footage of the Trump crowd heckling him and wrote: “Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy.”

The truth is Acosta’s reporting is exactly why so many people at Trump rallies and across the nation despise CNN and other media. [FULL]

I feel better now.

Jim, you took your Socialist, anti-American, dis-Trump-at-every-turn reporting into the heart of a Conservative rally led by President Trump. What did you expect, you imbecilic moron? Hugs and kisses?

Slug, you have earned every dicey moment you find yourself in from now till President Trump's re-election. Your often false reporting, your obvious anti-Conservative bias, your boorish lack of manners, has brought this sh*t sandwich to your table.

Change your ways or prepare for more of the same.

Dems and especially Dem politicians and newsies are known for their "rules for thee are not for me" attitude in everything, from the Constitution to local laws to parking in handicapped places without a tag to just good manners. They assume they are elite so they're exempt from the constraints put upon us mere mortal deplorables.
Well, eggs and rotten tomatoes will overcome that steel fence. We'd love to Acostya Jimmy boy. Just sayin, yannow?

Once again, may we point out that another Bastille Day has come and gone without the sight and sound of tumbrels loaded with Lamestream "journalists" rolling toward Le Guillotine. Maybe next year.

(Yeah, we know it was the French Revolution that inspired the whole Leftist thang, but that's just one of the tables that need to be turned in order to put an end to this shit.)

Legend has it that when it was Robespierre's turn on the guillotine , they put him face up and pried his eyes open so that he had to watch the blade drop ….Acosta will be on a platform waiting for an elephant on Viagra.

Does anybody know where I can get ringtones for my iPhone 8. I am looking for "Lock her up" and "CNN sucks."

Much as any other cowardly bully does once comeuppance commences-after 8 years of the obamaturd, will there ever be enough winning?

I haven't yet grown tired of winning, but I sure am tired of all this whining. Wasn't it Obozo who said, "We won, you lost; get over it"? Isn't the Left forever telling us to "Move on"? Don't they even have a propaganda site called "move"?
