CLUELESS GASBAG Jim Acosta on Colbert’s ‘Late Show’: “We’re Not Supposed to be the Story – That’s Not Why I’m Here” (VIDEO)
Jim Acosta, CNN’s favorite narcissist, took to CBS on Wednesday evening to continue his crusade for fame and infamy by pretending to be some sort of champion of press freedom.
When asked by Late Show host Stephen Colbert about making himself the story, Acosta stated that he’s “allowed to care about this country as much as anybody else.”
“We’re not supposed to be the story, you know. That’s not why I’m out there,” Acosta responded. “I get accused of that from time to time, and my attitude is ‘Listen, I’m allowed to care about this country as much as anybody else.”
The man who pretends to be persecuted went on to air his grievances with the administration — totally freely — unlike actual persecuted journalist Julian Assange (who he does not stand up for).
“If you think that … you can take children away from their parents on the border and put them in cages, if you think you can demonize immigrants and call them rapists and criminals, if you think that you can distort the sense of reality that we all have on a daily basis by telling lie after lie and falsehood after falsehood and not face any hard questions, I think you’re just not living in the same United States of America that I live in,” Acosta said.
Prior to his appearance on the show, Acosta was ruthlessly mocked for his ridiculously appropriate photo of him smiling approvingly at himself in the mirror.
