Trump Brutally Mocks Jim Acosta After CNN Reporter Gets Antsy in India

Well, this is embarrassing.

President Trump has no patience left for the mainstream media, and who can blame him?  For years on end he has been their muse, as they attempt to smear and plaster him with all manner of muck and  misinformation.

And while the occasional cold question is expected to get through in the Rose Garden pressers and Oval Office photo ops, when our President is overseas and representing the greater good of the American people, American reporters have largely refrained from getting heated.  This was not the case this week, however, as CNN’s Jim Acosta once again traded barbs with President Trump.

President Trump scolded CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday during a press conference in India, telling the reporter he should be “ashamed” and blasting the liberal network.

Acosta asked Trump if he would accept foreign interference in the upcoming election and how he could justify replacing Joseph Maguire as acting director of national intelligence.

The president didn’t appreciate the two-part question.

“First of all, I want no help from any country, and I haven’t been given help from any country,” Trump answered before referencing a report that CNN had to walk back on Sunday. “If you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way. Didn’t they apologize for the fact that they said certain things that weren’t true? Tell me, what was their apology yesterday? What did they say?”

Acosta fired back, “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes.”

Acosta was at the center of a scandal on Pennsylvania Avenue as well, and temporarily lost his press credentials on account of an altercation between himself and a White House aide some months ago.
