Trump Had a Surprise Waiting For CNN When They Tried To Enter The White House – PRICELESS!

Published

on

One of the well-known journalists from CNN got quite a surprise as he arrived at the White House. Anyone who may have seen this probably had quite a laugh as they witnessed the power of Trump and the little surprise that may or may not have been planned. Most likely not planned at all, but this sure caught CNN’s Jim Acosta off-guard. He was caught on camera having a meltdown when the White House Secret Service failed to recognize him as he tried to enter the White House yesterday.

Michael J. Morrison, who posted the video confirmed that Acosta was having a meltdown when the Secret Service stopped him after he had walked from the South Lawn into the White House without wearing his credentials around his neck. Sadly Morrison said that by the time he was able to get his camera out and start recording that Acosta was already cooling off.

Clearly defeated, as Acosta left he said: “I have been here 5 years and no one said anything to me before.”

Note from the Editor: This was a popular story for Right Wing News when it first ran a couple weeks ago. We’re bringing it back for your enjoyment and the important message Americans need to receive.

As reported on National Review, Acosta has a history of odd behavior:

“Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, has been having a public meltdown regarding the president’s treatment of the media, and the Washington Post has noticed.

The Post’s media reporter, Paul Farhi, launched an inquiry into Acosta’s “grandstanding” in a piece in Sunday’s style section.

“Acosta’s remarks aren’t just blunt; they’re unusual. Reporters are supposed to report, not opine,” wrote Farhi. “Yet Acosta’s disdain has flowed openly, raising a question about how far a reporter — supposedly a neutral arbiter of facts, not a commenter on them — can and should go.”

While CNN host Brian Stelter’s 15-minute monologues moaning about Trump’s treatment of the press are run-of-the-mill for cable-news pundits, Acosta’s public displays of resistance in the White House press-briefing room break all precedent. Rather than press Sean Spicer or Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Trump’s agenda, Acosta has spent since roughly last February focusing on how the White House conducts its press briefings and how it treats CNN.

Acosta’s repeated badgering of Spicer to hold on-camera briefings creates clip-worthy scenes, which feel like a bold defense of journalism, even though, given the nature of White House press briefings, they do not actually matter much. Briefings say most about a president’s communications angle, and seeing as Trump seems not to have any clear communications strategy or message beyond his Twitter feed, the briefing has become little more than a charade.

That has not stopped Acosta from tweeting out photos of his socks at non-televised briefings (“I can’t show you a picture of Sean. So here is a look at some new socks I bought over the wknd”), changing his Twitter bio to “I believe in #realnews,” and lambasting an “erosion of our freedoms” at every possible television appearance.

Of course, CNN has been goading this inanity at every point of his performance, no doubt because this “feud” between CNN and the White House generates so many views. While Trump’s communications team has haplessly attempted to cling to #EnergyWeek and #InfrastructureWeek as the media cares only about Russia, CNN has sent its Supreme Court sketch artist to the briefings at which cameras are prohibited. After all, nothing stands more in the way of democracy than not knowing what color tie Sean Spicer chose on a given day.

But of course, if Acosta has legitimate concerns with Trump’s policy and politics, it makes sense that he would clamor for direct access. For the sake of fairness, let’s go through Acosta’s journalistic highlights since the ascent of Trump.

While the rest of CNN’s reporters were presumably licking their wounds and listening to some spoken-word poetry following Trump’s victory, Acosta broke out some of the network’s hardest-hitting reporting, booking reservations at the Michelin-starred Jean Georges restaurant to stalk the then-president-elect at dinner with Reince Priebus and rumored secretary of state candidate Mitt Romney. At least 20 feet away from the dinner, Acosta live-tweeted all sorts of juicy scoops, such as “Trump crossing his arms for a good while now as Romney smiles and speaks” and “Fresh marshmallows are prepared as Trump, Romney, and Priebus dine.” Acosta was promptly “#busted” — yes, that’s a direct quote from Acosta’s tweets — when Trump approached Acosta, but that didn’t stop him from reporting later that “Trump, Romney, and Priebus have moved on to dessert.”

In June, Acosta was quick to quote an anonymous White House official, claiming that Trump did not meet with Representative Steve Scalise following the shooting at Alexandria. Fewer than 30 minutes later, Acosta debunked his own false claim, which had presumably come from a made-up or unreliable source.

Last Thursday, Acosta perpetuated the New York Times’ erroneous assertion that 17 intelligence agencies have claimed that Russia meddled in the 2016 elections (in fact, it was four), but not before calling Trump’s joint news conference in Poland a “fake news conference” for taking a question from a Daily Mail reporter who is “essentially an ally of the White House.”

Never mind that Trump also called on MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson at the conference. (Jackson called on Trump to formally acknowledge that Russia interfered in the election. Trump said that it might be Russia and then deflected to “But Obama” and a strange aside about Iraq’s nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.)

Perhaps Acosta’s complaints would be more valid if he agitated for the rights of any other news organizations. Instead, his complaining revolves solely around Trump and CNN, obsessing over this relationship rather than what the government is actually doing.

Furthermore, Trump’s antipathy to the media is not exactly unprecedented. Throughout his presidency, Obama openly and repeatedly derided Fox News’s “destructive viewpoint.”

Less than a year into his presidency, Obama’s communications director, Anita Dunn, told the New York Times, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”

“Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic, but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition,” wrote the Times. “But shots are still being fired, which animates the idea that both sides see benefits in the feud.”

CNN Correspondent Gets Hit With Tear Gas On Mexican Border

The King of Fake News is covering the invasion coming from south of our border.

Actually, they’re probably cheering the migrant caravan on because they know they will vote Dem in the future.

At any rate, a reporter for CNN got hit with tear gas fired by Mexican police. Should we be laughing about this? Oh hell yeah. Poetic justice, LOL. 😀

The Daily Caller is reporting:

CNN correspondent Bill Weir was reporting from the border between Guatemala and Mexico, following a caravan of migrants approaching Mexico, when he and others were hit with tear gas on Friday afternoon.

“We’re on a bridge that separates Guatemala from the southern tip of Mexico here. There’s about 400 riot policemen, Federales, on the Mexican side behind a twenty-foot steel fence that has been padlocked shut and for some reason, the authorities on the Guatemalan side, let this huge surge of humanity in,” Weir said. “They all came streaming up to the fence. At first, they tried to form a single-form line because they were told they’d be let in one at a time in a humane, orderly way. But the crowd was just too powerful.”

“They were greeted by the cops. The policemen are now forcing the gates back shut after firing either smoke canisters — I didn’t smell tear gas,” he continued. “Now people have backed off, there’s a little more space and you can see all the shoes that have been lost in the scramble. There’s a man in front of me suffering from heat stroke, maybe having a heart attack.”

Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to close the southern border and halt aid.

“This is really just an exercise in crowd control we’re witnessing here. Imagine if they threw open the gates to a concert, as we’ve learned that lesson in years past and people are trampled,” Weir added. “That’s what happened when they opened up the Guatemalan side. Oh, tear gas. Tear gas. The canister landed literally two feet from me. No, no, no, no, don’t throw rocks!”

Sarah Sanders Laughed In CNN Host’s Face After Catching Him In SICK Lie During Live Interview

Published

on

...

* By

Chris Cuomo must have really thought he had a “gotcha” moment when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders agreed to an interview with him for his CNN show, “New Day.” CNN ratings have been sinking faster than the Titanic in recent times.

Routinely called out for selective coverage and significant bias, as well as flat out “fake news” Cuomo likely thought he could regain some credibility as a “serious journalist” by baiting Sanders. Cuomo did not disappoint launching into the expected diatribes and the usual lies regarding the Trump administration.

Cuomo asked Sanders if she liked her job as press secretary for President Donald Trump. Sanders naturally answered in the affirmative and went on to tout accomplishments by the Trump administration citing the strong economy and President Trump’s recent legislation benefiting veterans. Realizing he had no method of attack here, Cuomo then chose to wonder aloud, inquiring if Sanders believes the president’s contention with the media is sustainable.

Sounding much like junior high boy passing notes stating “Do you like me? Check ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” Cuomo asked: “Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?”

Sanders all but laughed in his face and retorted sharply:
“ What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” Sanders shot back. “You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”

Realizing this interview was not going in the direction he wanted it to go, Cuomo attempted to cut Sanders off, interjecting with: “Yeah, that’s the job, that’s the job!”

Sanders returns fire with a truth bomb Cuomo cannot refute, stating: “No, the job is to get information and to report the news!”

That must have been a bitter pill for Cuomo to swallow, but Sanders was not finished with her total annihilation of this journalistic hack. She adds:  “Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that [on CNN].”

Sanders simply does not suffer fools, nor does she engage in silly word games where one side tries to convince the other that the grass is not indeed green. She refuses to engage in the media spectacle CNN’s Jim Acosta and April Ryan attempt to create during White House press briefings.

Naturally, Cuomo got his dander all up at Sanders’ suggestion that he is a mere opinion journalist and then attempted to make the ridiculous claim that Sanders does answer the public’s questions during White House press briefings.

Sanders was having none of Cuomo’s attempts to deflect. “I answer questions all day, every day,” Sanders retorted. “It’s what I spend every minute of the day doing. It’s why I’m sitting here at 9 o’clock at night answering questions to you.”

Cuomo is known for touting the leftist party line and citing approved propaganda from the Democratic party line for line. He has been caught in lie after lie, yet manages to keep his job at CNN because his brother is the governor of New York and his father was the former governor of the same. Without his family connections? He would be asking such riveting questions as, “Would you like fries with that?”

In 2015, Cuomo repeated the lie “a video started the Benghazi attack” siding with Hillary Clinton’s account of the events that occurred. He to this day denies any wrongdoing on the part of the Obama administration. The key to journalistic integrity is being willing to hold anyone and everyone accountable for their actions regardless of political affiliation. It seems Cuomo missed that memo.

Hot Air reported on Cuomo’s coverage of the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October of 2015:

“In preparation for this long-anticipated event, CNN’s Chris Cuomo took the opportunity to interview committee member Martha Roby (R – Alabama 2) regarding what we should expect out of this Q&A session. It’s definitely a newsworthy topic which has captured the nation’s attention, but Chris might have wanted to prepare a bit more before the interview. He managed to get nearly everything wrong with his questions and seemed genuinely shocked when he failed to fish out the answers he was looking for.

Here are just a few of the premises which Cuomo fed into the interview. Let’s see how he did.

Cuomo: “But then you get to legitimate questions of well, what else are you going to learn? You’ve had the secretary, the former secretary now, for over six hours. She spoke specifically to what she knew before, during and after. She gave you answers that may not have been satisfying to you, but she gave answers. She talked to you about the threat. She talked to you about her recognition of the threat. She talked to you about her response to the threat.”

That’s certainly a damning accusation. Unfortunately, there are just a few details which Cuomo got wrong.

Hillary Clinton has never testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. She testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for two and a half hours in January of 2013. (Worth noting that it was controlled by Democrats at the time.) She also testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for three hours in the same month, which was more than two years before we got any of her emails.

Here’s another golden Cuomo moment:

“[Secretary Clinton’s] been the target. You’ve had members of your party, members of this committee, say that it is about her, they were going after her, you had Kevin McCarthy bragging about bringing down her poll numbers, you had that sentiment echoed by other Republican congressmen. So it’s not just me who’s bringing up this cynicism.”

That would make a great talking point except for the fact that the only two Republicans who have said anything of the sort are not on the committee and have no direct knowledge of anything that the committee has done.”

Just last week Cuomo made the wild claim that there was “proof of potential collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign. Except, there isn’t, except maybe in Cuomo’s mind. Rather than actually look at the facts, Cuomo chose to go head to head with Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-R) who blew him out of the water exposing his propaganda peddling for the lies it is. Facts are pesky sometimes.

Jordan stated plainly the federal government lied when it obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. He also stated it relied on a false dossier to prop up its case during the course of his interview with Cuomo.

Cuomo attempted to refute:“They did disclose where the dossier came from. It is not all false allegations in that dossier.” Any judge worth the black robe he or she dons daily while sitting the bench and takes their pledge to ethics seriously would not approve a warrant if they knew the evidence was a bought and paid for unverified dossier by Hillary Clinton. Nevermind, there is an active and ongoing investigation by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) currently.

Jordan was incensed at Cuomo’s obvious lies and attempts to peddle propaganda and replies: “You know this to be the case even though you have never seen the FISA application yourself?”

Cuomo had nothing much to say after that, yet he still continues to promote the ridiculous and completely false narrative: “no one spied on the Trump campaign” even after Democrats were forced to publically acknowledge that it was true.

Cuomo and others like him seem to forget that there is a huge difference between “Freedom of the Press” and actual investigative reporting. It is the polar opposite of allowing “The Onion” or “Mad Magazine” to show up and attempt to interfere with the ability of actual journalists to have open and respectful communication between the American people and The White House in seeking answers to questions we have.
