President Trump KICKS OUT CNN Reporter from White House
CNN’s Jim Acosta represents the fake news media well. And he pushes the limits when at the White House.
He’s known for being a disingenuous grandstanding hack who calls himself a journalist. But he is far from it. His childish antics are little more than his quest for attention, that Leftists feel with get them the fat book deals.
In his latest attention-grabbing move, Acosta threw a hissy fit, claiming White House aides shouted in his face to drown out his questions.
The incident occurred with President Trump met with Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan in the Oval Office on Tuesday. President Trump stopped taking further questions from the press in order to wrap up the meeting. At this point, Acosta decided to become the freak show.

Jim Acosta tweeted, “As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before.”

President Trump had enough. He pointed at Acosta and said, “Out.”
Some “Raccoon” tried to defend Acosta in this tweet:
So it was you that he ordered out.

Of course Acosta tried to make things sound like “business as usual”.
Funny how Acosta rarely asked Obama any “tough” questions. Nor did he act out during the Obama press conferences.
Perhaps he thought Obama might jail him?
When I tried to follow up on this in the Oval Office, Trump told me to get "out." We then went to the Roosevelt Room where WH aides obstructed us from asking questions. https://t.co/vuEIv1jvso

Social media wasn’t kind.
The Daily Caller’s David Hookstead mocked Acosta, comparing him to the men who stormed the beaches at Normandy.
Your bravery knows no limits. The men who stormed the beaches on D-Day look to you for inspiration of true courage. https://t.co/cZLG0CzHRg

On multiple occasions, Acosta had to be put in his place.
Sarah Sanders called him out back in December.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Monday when the liberal reporter tried to hijack a press briefing during a conversation about fake news.
Acosta told Sanders that journalists make “honest mistakes” but that doesn’t make them “fake news” before attempting a question. Sanders quickly cut him off.
CNN had to issue its own correction on Friday after The Washington Post debunked the network’s report claiming the Trump campaign had early, secret access to hacked DNC emails from WikiLeaks. The network on Friday inaccurately trumpeted that Congressional investigators obtained a mysterious 2016 email that was sent to Trump and other top aides, including Donald Trump Jr., which contained information on how to get a sneak peek at hacked information that WikiLeaks had acquired. The email, as CNN reported, offered a “decryption key” to access the files – but the network botched the date on the email, rendering the entire report irrelevant.
On Monday, CNN backtracked a report from earlier this year that faulted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to reveal meetings he had with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance – a disclosure he wasn’t required to make. CNN also was widely mocked on Monday morning for a segment on Trump’s soda intake amid unfolding breaking news related to the terror attack in New York City.
Keep in mind, the president had already warned Acosta. President Trump has pointed directly at Acosta and said, “You’re fake news,” at past news conferences.
