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 Tries To Get ‘Cute’ With Melania – Proved She Packs A Perfect Punch
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.
Trump Canceled Backstabbing Congress’ Fancy Picnic – Has Priceless Plan For All The Food
There was supposed to be an annual congressional picknick but since President Trump rightly so felt like Congress didn’t deserve to have one he canceled it on the spot. “We are going to cancel and postpone tomorrow’s congressional picnic,” Trump said. “It doesn’t feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we are doing something very important.” He added, “It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”
This is what some have all been waiting to see for decades now. Since the backstabbers in Congress have been avoiding doing their job for decades, it’s now being reported that President Trump hypothetically took them out behind the woodshed today. No, he didn’t beat them although the Liberal mainstream media may paint it as he did even worse to them.
But there was only one problem with the cancellation. The preparations had already begun.
The menu is awesome. It included ribeye Steaks, coleslaw, quinoa, spinach, black beans and a huge assortment of pies.
Since all this food was already being prepared President Trump decided to do what’s right. Instead of throwing it out he decided to feed all of the food to Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda.
This was later confirmed by a USO spokeswoman.
The canceled congressional picnic food, including rib eye steaks, spinach, cole slaw, quinoa, black beans and pies, will be served at a lunch today to Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda, a USO spokeswoman tells me. https://t.co/dxv6RgVA6e

What a beautiful gesture, to give all that top notch food to American heroes instead of the jokers in Congress.
Update America covered more on the canceled party and presentation of a good meal to those who seemed to deserve it a lot more! “President Donald Trump surprised members of Congress earlier this week when he abruptly canceled the annual Congressional Picnic.
Basically, the president felt like they didn’t deserve it.
The menu included “ribeye steaks, spinach, coleslaw, quinoa, black beans and pies.”
Rather than let Congress throw a fancy picnic, President Trump’s administration decided to feed all of the food to “Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda,” Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reported.
That means America’s military heroes are going to be eating very good.
President Trump has called on Democrats to stop “obstructing” and work with Republicans to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Earlier this week, the president signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together. Now it’s lawmakers’ turn to do their job.
“We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections,” Trump tweeted on Friday. “Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!”
Trump isn’t the only one who doesn’t seem happy with Congress. Their approval ratings aren’t doing so well among voters either.
“It’s no secret that Congress isn’t exactly the most popular institution in American government. But now it’s reaching new lows.
Congress sank to a 10% approval rating in a new Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday, with roughly five in six Americans saying they disapprove of the country’s legislative body. This compares to an 18% approval rating in March. And if you’re searching for the main reason behind the drop, look no further than Republican voters.
Back in January and March, more than one in three Republicans said they had positive views of Congress, which is controlled by the GOP in both chambers.
But now, that’s plummeted to just 14% of Republican voters who give Congress a thumbs up. The new numbers come after a high-profile effort to repeal and replace Obamacare barely squeaked through the House and failed in a dramatic late-night vote in the Senate. Congress’s overall 10% approval is the lowest for Congress in Quinnipiac’s history of data back to 2003. Using Gallup data beyond that, it’s the lowest for Congress in data back to 1974. (Congress did reach a 9% approval rating in Gallup polling in November 2013 in the wake of a two-week government shutdown.) And to make matters worse, Republicans were Congress’s most supportive group. The low numbers stretch across every demographic division — only 12% of nonwhites, 12% of people under 35 years old, 11% of men, 10% of people over 65 years old, 9% of women and 9% of whites approve.
Support for Congress among independents has also bottomed out, falling from 18% in January to just 8% now. Democrats have remained essentially stable in the single digits.”
With all the issues we are facing today it’s no time for our so-called Representatives to be taking time to enjoy a BBQ. Especially when we have a party like the Democrats who seem intent on ruining our nation by forcing us into open borders along with the help of their mainstream media and celebrities who spread lies and misinformation.
