You are fake news!

CNN’s Jim Acosta told Jimmy Kimmel that he was just as tough on Obama as he is on Trump. Does he really think people believe this? There is absolutely no comparison between the way he and his media colleagues treated the two presidents. They treated Obama like a hero.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘I Was Just as Tough’ on President Obama As I Am With Trump

CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and dished on his experience in covering the Trump administration.

Jimmy Kimmel began the interview by praising the CNN reporter — airing a montage of his most contentious moments with the White House — saying he loves seeing Acosta “bust their balls” at the White House.

“Are you the only reporter who has ever been kicked out of a press situation by the President of the United States?” Kimmel asked.

“I think so,” Acosta answered. “I wear it as a badge of honor.”

Acosta thinks he’s “probably” the White House’s least favorite reporter, but quoted FDR in saying he “welcomes their hatred.”

“Listen, when I covered Barack Obama, I was just as tough on him,” Acosta told Kimmel. “People might not want to believe that.”
