President Trump has had no shortage of detractors in the mainstream media during his first term, with CNN’s Jim Acosta undoubtedly distancing himself from the pack as one of the most outspoken.
Acosta, one of CNN’s White House correspondents, has a flair for inserting himself directly into the path of the President’s wrath. This is certainly no mistake, as CNN and the rest of the cable news clowns fully understand that their annoyance of Donald Trump makes for good television, but at the expense of the nation as a whole. These combative moments often overshadow whatever inane point that Acosta was trying to make, further tipping the network’s hand toward salacious verbal explosions as opposed to “news”.
But this sort of self-serving scandal took a backseat today after President Trump uncorked a speech commemorating D-Day that even Acosta and his fellow “resistance” stalwarts couldn’t help but applaud.
“This is perhaps the most on-message moment of Donald Trump’s presidency today. We were all wondering if he would veer from his remarks, go off of his script but he stayed on script, stayed on message and, I think, rose to the moment,” Acosta said on CNN immediately following the speech.
Even MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough found himself enamored with the moment.
“[Trump] delivered what, again, I believe is the strongest speech of his presidency,” Scarborough said, noting that it was a “beautiful moment” when Trump acknowledged that many of the troops feel the “heroes were the ones that never came back” but the survivors formed a remarkable generation.
The moment of peace between the press and the President comes at a time in which unprecedented division exists in America.
Just this week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was reported to have said that her hopes for impeaching President Trump were overshadowed by her hopes to “imprison” him.
