Poor Jim Acosta, he is such a jerk, and every day he proves it to the world. Today the clown-prince of the White House press corps lied about President Trump again and got royally beaten up on Twitter.
After President Trump’s immigration speech, Acosta tweeted:
Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: “These are frivolous claims.”

I wonder if Acosta’s pants caught fire because that isn’t what the POTUS said. What President Trump said was the legitimate asylum seekers are being hurt by the illegitimate ones:
“Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims….My plan expedites relief”
The President’s campaign committee started the smackdown.
How can you do this and go home at night thinking you’ve turned in an honest day’s work as a journalist?

But they were too kind compared to the other comments…well compared to SOME of the other comments. This first guy seemed to worry about Acosta’s health:

This is exactly why he says you’re an enemy of the people.

Acosta is also the enemy of legitimate reporters who care about the truth and doesn’t make themselves the center of each story.
