We all understand that Jim Acosta is terrible at his job and we all understand that CNN rating’s are in the toilet. The relationship between Trump and Acosta has been very tense and you can’t blame Trump for that. Acosta has been incredibly rude to Sarah Sanders and he’s been using the White House press conferences as a soapbox to grand stand and make a scene. Basically, Jim Acosta wants his own TV show one day.
On Tuesday, Trump and Acosta had their most intense exchange yet.
The entire press conference was heated and Trump was going at it with several reporters.
Clearly, he’s going to keep fighting hard and he’s not discouraged by losing the House. This is why the American people voted him into office. They wanted a fighter and a fighter is exactly what they got.
Here are some Twitter reactions.
Here’s another angle showing Acosta pushing a woman away when she tried to grab the mic. Imagine if a Republican did that.
Jim Acosta has no business attending any more of these press conferences.
CNN also has no business pretending they are a real news organization. The ratings sure don’t suggest it.
Last week, CNN dropped a full 41 percent in the daytime TV ratings and fell 36 percent in primetime compared to the same week last year.
AdWeek reports, “CNN ranked No. 6 across basic cable in total prime time viewers, and No. 5 in total day this past week. Despite the top 10 finishes, the network was -36 percent in prime time viewers, and -41 percent in total day viewers vs. the same week last year.”
Not only did CNN see a devastating drop from last year’s ratings, the network was once again bested by its competitors. Fox News came in first place with during the day, while MSNBC came in second.
