BITTER: Jim Acosta Fires Back At POTUS Trump After CNN Wins FOUR FAKE NEWS AWARDS

Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was far from pleased after President Trump bestowed CNN with four “Fake News” awards Wednesday evening. Acosta, who was speaking on a panel organized by Freedom of Press, responded to the news, stating “I would say having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

Bitter, indeed.

Responding to the GOP’s website crashing upon Trump announcing the “Fake News” awards, Acosta tweeted, “Crushed by the weight of its own absurdity. .”

Earlier in the discussion, Acosta defended against criticism for asking the President if he was a racist in relation to his “sh*thole” remarks.

“God damn it, I’ll say it outloud … it is our right to ask if the president is a racist,” Acosta blurted out.

During the event, Acosta even likened himself to a firefighter.

“It’s like the truth is on fire, and April and John and I, we go into the White House every day and we’re like firefighters putting out the fire.” Says they’re being deceived by an administration that “would rather all of us watch certain programs on John’s network,” claimed Acosta.

Below are the four awards won by CNN:

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.1 […]

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”


9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

Acosta was asked to leave the Oval Office Tuesday after peppering the President with racially charged questions about his alleged “sh*thole” remarks.

“Out,” Trump told Acosta.

Tweeting about the event, Acosta wrote, “As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before.”

A whiny Acosta added, “What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.”
