Obscure Cable-TV Personality Becomes Disorderly at White House Briefing

CNN’s ratings are lower than the Hallmark Channel and Nickelodeon, which means more people watch Spongebob Squarepants than watch Jim Acosta, CNN’s prima donna “reporter” who threw a public temper tantrum during a presidential press conference today:

CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta was captured wrestling with an unidentified White House aide for possession of a microphone while he attempted to ask President Trump questions during Wednesday’s press conference.
Acosta and Trump got into a heated debate after the reporter asked him about the migrant caravan. Trump told Acosta to let him do his job.
“Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN,” Trump told Acosta.
The reporter tried to ask him another question before a female White House aide walked over to him.
Trump then told him, “That’s enough!”
Acosta continued to try to talk as the aide was seen trying to take the microphone from his hand. She grabbed the microphone but Acosta wouldn’t give it up.
“Excuse me, ma’am,” he told the aide as he continued his question. The aide then kneeled next to Acosta to wait for him to finish speaking.
Acosta then continued to ask Trump about the Russian investigation, which the president called “a hoax.”
Trump again told Acosta to put down the microphone. The aide was then able to take the microphone from Acosta and give it to NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander.
However, Trump wasn’t finished and called Acosta “a very rude person.”
“I’ll tell you what. CNN should be ashamed of themselves having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN,” Trump told Acosta.
“You’re a very rude person. The way you treat [White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is horrible. And the way you treat other people is horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way,” Trump continued.

Acosta is a disgrace and his network is a laughingstock.
