CNN’s Jim Acosta is such a joke. He clearly thinks it’s his personal mission to harass Trump by repeating questions which have already been answered. It’s a scene that’s been played out many times before and it happened again today when Acosta implied that Trump hasn’t denounced the right people enough.
Trump ended up calling him fake news.
Here are the details, via the FOX News Insider:
‘You Spread a Lot of Fake News’: Trump, CNN’s Acosta Battle Over Charlottesville
Trump was formalizing trade actions against China to “safeguard our copyrights… and other intellectual property.”
As Trump stood up to leave, Acosta could be heard calling a question to him:
“Mr. President, could you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?” he said.
“They have been condemned,” Trump responded.
Trump did not immediately name the hate groups, but criticized “all sides” of the violence.
Today blasted KKK and white nationalist elements for their actions.
Acosta then asked for a press conference on the issue.
“That doesn’t bother me at all,” Trump said of getting questioned about the violent white nationalists’ clash with Antifa protesters at the former Lee Park (now Emancipation Park) in Charlottesville, Va.
“But, you know I like real news, not fake news. You’re fake news,” Trump said, and walked out.

Acosta is a hero in his own mind. To everyone else he is fake news.
