CNN propagandist Jim Acosta acts childish at White House event, gets shushed — Video

There’s a reason why so many people now say the so-called “mainstream media” can no longer be trusted. On Friday, CNN propagandist Jim Acosta made an absolute fool of himself when he decided to act like a petulant child at a White House event in which President Trump spoke on the economy and tax cuts.

He also addressed the recent Annapolis shooting in which five people were killed.

“This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief. Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job,” he said.

Video posted to Twitter showed the alleged “reporter” repeatedly shouting a question at President Trump.

“Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people,” he said, according to a tweet issued by Politico.

Eventually, someone directly in front of Acosta turned around and “shushed” Acosta the way one might address a child acting up in public.

Here’s the video:

The spurned CNN hack/baby later tweeted:

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs added: Trump didn’t appear to hear any of the questions we called out to him at the end of the tax reform anniversary event. Notably, when the very friendly audience realized reporters were yelling to Trump, they increased the volume of their applause and whooping to override the press.”

Who can blame them with this going on?

Acosta also tweeted his “last great act of defiance” by bravely declaring: “We also had a few folks who shushed is in the audience. Of course we are not going to be shushed.”

We don’t know who that was, but we’d like to give him kudos for giving Acosta the treatment he richly deserved.

On a final note, Acosta should really consider himself fortunate that he didn’t get kicked out of the event.
