CNN’s Jim Acosta just published a new book and he is clearly very proud of it.
Unfortunately for him, not many people are as interested in his new work as he is. He showed up at a bookstore in Virginia this week to sign books in person and only sold about 30 books.
The Daily Caller reports:
JIM ACOSTA’S ‘QUIET’ BOOK SIGNING: 30 BOOKS SOLD
CNN White House Correspondent Jim’s Acosta’s tell-all book, “The Enemy of The People,” describes his time “fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth.”
Acosta showed up Wednesday to the Barnes & Noble in Arlington, Virginia, for an impromptu book signing. Acosta tweeted out pictures of himself at the “surprise signing” displaying a stack of books and himself signing one.
An Arlington Barnes & Noble employee told The Daily Caller the signing was not a planned event, but Acosta had called the store in advance to alert them he would be coming. The employee told the Caller the signing consisted of Acosta standing behind a counter and signing books for about an hour.
“It was kind of very quiet — he showed up and signed,” she said. She said there were “no customers waiting for him to sign his book” — he simply appeared without an announcement.
A manager at the Arlington Barnes & Noble told the Caller that the store sold “like 30-or-something” copies of Acosta’s book while he was there. He said the store still has some of Acosta’s books in stock.
He looked so excited about it, too.

He apparently takes some cheap shots at FOX News hosts in the book. Who could have guessed?
Jim Acosta tweeted out this excerpt from his book and it is actually funny how poorly written it is. I remain convinced he's a GOP plant to make all reporters look bad in every way possible. pic.twitter.com/qhJbjmn0tU

It reads like one of my kids had a writing assignment in 5th grade to describe a bus trip they recently had with friends.
"Hannity and Tucker wouldn't let me sit with them on the bus and they made fun of me. It hurt my feelings and made me feel sad when we arrived at the zoo"

Give the man a break. He's a tv personality! Before this he only wrote diary entries. 😁

Jim is a hero in his own mind.
Just ask him.
