Jim Acosta picked a fight with Kellyanne Conway on live TV that he immediately regretted
CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta spews fake news on a daily basis.
Acosta is known for asking biased questions and speaking out of line.
But this time he picked a fight with the wrong woman and she embarrassed him on live TV.
During a press event before the President’s national address on the border wall, Acosta interrupted White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and asked if the President, “planned to tell the truth.”
That’s when Conway let him have it.
She fired back at him for just trying to get attention and even called him out for being a “smartass.”
Fox News reports:
Kellyanne Conway embarrassed CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press gaggle on Tuesday, referring to him as a “smarta–” unliked by other reporters.
Acosta asked Conway if she could promise that President Trump would tell the truth when addressing the nation on Tuesday night.
“Yes, Jim,” Conway shot back, “Can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention ‘God’ to you?”
Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does.
“Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day,” Conway said. “You’re such a smarta– most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.”
Acosta was briefly banned from the White House for continually interrupting President Trump during a press conference and swiping at a White House intern.
At the time, the left cried out that this was an act of free speech censorship and an attack on journalism.
However, Acosta is not engaging in real journalism.
He is simply asking conniving questions to make the administration look bad and promote his personal agenda.
His behavior also prevents other reporters from asking questions.
Kellyanne Conway saw through his tactics and called him out on it immediately.
Acosta has completely tarnished his reputation and exposed CNN for what it truly is, a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.
