WATCH: Laura Loomer Confronts FAKE NEWS CNN’s Jim @Acosta

Monday morning prior to the daily White House press briefing, CNN’s resident fake news White House correspondent Jim Acosta was pressed by independent journalist Laura Loomer.

Loomer spots Acosta and instantly starts in: “You guys going to report some more fake news CNN today?”

Acosta attempts to play off Loomer’s comment replying, “No. We’re going to report the truth and see if people can handle it.”

A citizen witness nearby scoffs at Acosta’s statement and sarcastically asks, “Truth?”

Loomer then questions Acosta on whether ‘CNN’ and ‘truth’ really go together. Acosta responded in the most childish way as he began to walk away:

“You bet they do. You just can’t take it.”

Loomer turns to the citizen witness beside her and he mentions to her how he would rather be on any other channel besides CNN.

Later that day, Acosta tweeted the following after not being called on during the White House press briefing:
