CNN man-child Jim Acosta really hates President Trump. Even though he plays the role of “journalist,” he lets his anti-Trump bias pour out daily.

Acosta also hates Rush Limbaugh, the radio legend who has connected with millions of conservatives for 30-plus years.

After Trump announced in his State of the Union on Thursday that he was awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Limbaugh, Acosta appeared on air to weigh in.

“He was trying to make appeals to the African American community,” Acosta said. “It can’t be forgotten that he was awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, who has a history of making derogatory comments about African Americans. So I think, you know, overall, it’s a wash.”

But hang on a sec. Let’s check in with Limbaugh’s longtime producer, James Golden, who is black. Golden, who is usually referred to on the show by his pseudonym “Bo Snerdley,” issued a challenge to Acosta to prove his allegation.

“I just saw the footage from CNN’s Jim Acosta saying Rush has a ‘history’ of saying disparaging things about African Americans. I have been in the studio with Rush for 30 years. I would like to formally challenge CNN and @Acosta to provide the list,” Golden wrote on Twitter.

Now, of course, if you were going to listen to one of these two guys — Acosta or Golden — about whether Limbaugh is racist, you’d have to go to Golden.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham, a longtime friend of Limbaugh, blasted Acosta’s accusation as “disgusting.”

“Jim Acosta is disgusting. That is a disgusting comment. Disgusting comment and false,” Ingraham said. “Every time they lose, they cry racism. Every time they lose, they say, ‘You’re a mean, horrible xenophobe.’ It’s insult after insult. What they accuse Trump of … is what they do routinely.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee also ripped the biased CNN, calling it “Fake News.”

“It’s time for CNN to either provide the list or apologize on air for another piece of FAKE NEWS. I believe @BoSnerdley knows Rush better than anyone at CNN. Will CNN have the integrity to put up or shut up? Waiting and watching,” the former governor wrote on Twitter.
