CNN’s Jim Acosta is still having a temper tantrum about being told his network sucks by Trump supporters in Florida this week. CNN spends 24 hours a day attacking Trump and his supporters but Jim can’t handle it when anyone pushes back. Now he’s saying he thinks journalists should hold a protest in front of the White House.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Acosta: Journalists Should Chant ‘We’re Not the Enemy of the People’ in Front of the White House
CNN correspondent Jim Acosta went on a lengthy rant against White House attacks on the media on Thursday, suggesting he and his fellow reporters chant on Pennsylvania Avenue “we’re not the enemy of the people” in protest against President Donald Trump’s claims that they are.
Acosta has had a series of public spats with Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other Trump officials, and he frequently tweets about his efforts to get questions answered. Trump has called Acosta “fake news,” and he has become a target of fervent Trump supporters, who were seen jeering and cursing him at a rally in Florida in a widely shared video.
Acosta pressured Sanders on Thursday over Trump’s frequent criticisms of the media, asking her to publicly declare that the press was not the “enemy of the American people,” as Trump frequently tweets. His daughter Ivanka Trump said earlier on Thursday she did not think that was true, but Sanders said she spoke on behalf of the president and his position was “clear.”

Do your protest, Jim. Show the American people that you’re really no different from all the other leftists protesting Trump.
