Jim Acosta found himself at the center of attention when President Trump made him look foolish in front of the entire galaxy. CNN’s Acosta was asking a question to President Trump during a press conference with Theresa May, but then Trump chimed in right away with one of the funniest replies we’ve seen in a while. Trump’s response was an instant classic for the president as he verbally shot-down Acosta’s request for a question with the most brilliant belittling we’ve seen all week.
It was like as soon as Acosta spoke, Trump narrowed down on him and shot his question out of the sky like a skeet shooter. Boom! There goes Acosta’s question and now we’re moving on to the next. The first rule of asking questions is to not ask someone if you can ask a question. You’ve already asked them a question. Now you’re asking to ask the second question. Just ask the first one instead. Of course, Acosta asked if he could ask a question, which sounds somewhat redundant, right?
The funny exchange was caught on video and millions have probably watched it by now.
After criticizing CNN, Pres. Trump declines to take a question from a CNN reporter at joint presser with Theresa May. "CNN is fake news. I don't take questions from CNN."

“During a press conference on Friday, President Donald Trump lodged another attack on CNN, but this time compared it to Fox News.
His comments came during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.
When CNN reporter Jim Acosta started asking Trump if he could ask a question, Trump flatly denied his request and instead went to Fox News’ John Roberts.
“Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?” Acosta asked. Trump responded by saying, “I don’t take questions from CNN,” and finished with, “CNN is fake news.”
When Trump called on Roberts, he said “Let’s go to a real network,” prompting Acosta to charge back, “Well, we’re a real network too, sir.”
Trump’s comment came amid longstanding tension between CNN and Trump’s administration. After a series of tense encounters with both press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as well as Trump, Acosta faced vocal and public backlash at one of Trump’s rallies last month.
During one of Acosta’s televised reports, a man held up a sign that read, “CNN Sucks,” and people started chanting, “Go home, Jim!”
This makes you wonder if Acosta ever get tired of being told he “sucks” or that he’s “fake news.” It also makes you wonder if he thrives on the attention because at least the president is paying attention to him. Even though Trump’s replies and remarks to/at Acosta don’t get CNN much information, but at least they’re in the spotlight and getting some press. In one way, they’re effective, but that’s probably not the way they would like to be presented in front of a worldwide audience.
Acosta would probably prefer to ask a question and get an answer, but since Trump clearly doesn’t like him or CNN that much, then that probably won’t happen as often as they’d like.
Perhaps if Acosta would act more professional and not try to be a magnet for attention or if CNN was less partisan, then perhaps Trump would give them the benefit of the doubt. As it stands, the President of the United States isn’t interested in working with fake news CNN, so they probably aren’t getting a good response out of him any time soon.
Just looked at CNN’s homepage and these appear to be two of the top stories for them. One story is about criticizing Trump’s ‘stroll’ and another story is about Scarlett Johansson being basically forced out of an acting job after intolerant people threw nasty backlash at her. Is this what the top stories of the day really are for CNN? Even on the weekend, how could someone see this as two important stories?
I know it’s Saturday afternoon, but this is more fitting for the comic section of a local student-run newspaper, not a major corporation.
CNN has some issues if this is what they’re placing as two of the big stories on their homepage.
I prefer Fox News who spotlighted a major sto
ry in which the mayor of London seems to be too focused on hating Trump while his city is torn to pieces by criminals.
What issues are more important and newsworthy? The way Trump strolls and Scar-Jo being forced out of a movie roll? Or an entire beautiful city being destroyed by criminals and the mayor letting it happen?
When I look at things like this, then it’s easy to see which publication gets called ‘fake news’ by President Trump.
Who is better? CNN or FOX News?

CNN Reporter Tried To Get ‘Cute’ With Melania, She Proved She’s Way More Than A Pretty Face
“posted a sharp response to a CNN reporter”
The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Daily Caller.
First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham posted a sharp response to a CNN reporter who asked if Melania likes to watch CNN on Twitter Wednesday.
CNN reporter Kate Bennett tweeted:
NEW: I asked @StephGrisham45 whether @FLOTUS had comment on the new Trump/Cohen tape details, and if she indeed was watching @CNN aboard Air Force One, upsetting the president, as @maggieNYT & @katierogers reported last night. Here's the response I got: pic.twitter.com/SJbxbnolMp

Grisham said, “Did you know that every 15 minutes a baby is born with NAS? Maybe you’d like to talk about the 160,000 kids who skip school every day for fear of being bullied, or that 280,000 students are physically attacked in schools every month. Seems kind of silly to worry about what channel she watches on TV (any channel she wants btw) or if she heard some recording on the news.”
This comment came in response to a New York Times article that reported that Melania Trump was watching CNN on Air Force One, causing President Trump to get annoyed and demand that Fox News is played instead.
Host On ‘The View’ Claims That Trump ‘Isn’t An Example,’ Meghan McCain Makes Her Choke On Her Words
She probably regrets saying that!!
RWNOfficial is the top news aggregator on the Internet delivering timely and trustworthy information. The following report was published by Daily Caller:
It was a war of words when Meghan McCain of “The View” nearly jumped out of her seat to verbally slap one of her co-hosts with some hot-handed truths. It took a few words from Meghan McCain to bring her co-host back to reality as they were bashing President Trump and his personal life as not being an example, even though everything people say about him is nothing more than an accusation to crush his character.
When “The View” co-host Sara Haines complained on Monday that “the day and age of a moral leader left possibly with President Obama,” Meghan McCain clapped back immediately.
“What era was that?” McCain asked, “when JFK was sleeping with Marilyn Monroe?”
During a discussion about Michael Cohen’s recorded conversation with President Trump, Meghan McCain challenged the narrative by saying that she was far more concerned with current foreign policy concerns than with the president’s personal life.
“Can I admit something, and maybe you will pass harsh judgment on me? I don’t care as much about his personal life and which Playboy bunny he slept with. That’s between him and Melania. I care about what’s going on with Iran. I care about all this foreign policy stuff. That’s what scares me …
I’m more scared of North Korea than the president’s personal life.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin then made the claim that if Trump can’t be faithful to his wife, he can’t be faithful to the American people.
Sara Haines jumped in, saying that President Obama was the last president who could really be held up as a good example. She explained, “I think the day and age of a moral leader left, possibly, with President Obama, so I feel like those values … there used to be a time we waved our president in front of young kids and said, ‘You can be this.’ I think that time might have ended, sadly.”
McCain fired back immediately, asking, “What era was that? When JFK was sleeping with Marilyn Monroe? They all had liaisons.”
