Video: Jim Acosta Just Called President Of The U.S. A Liar At A Press Conference In India – Trump Took Him Down In A Epic Smackdown
Conservative US ^ | 02.25.2020 | Natalie D.

Jim Acosta calling the president a liar to his face in front of a foreign audience on the basis of nothing is a bad look. He came all the way around the world to make a jerk out of himself.

Acosta is a DNC activist. He should no longer consider himself a journalist and should not be called one. What he did today, in a foreign land is tantamount to treason.

Today he proved that he is now a journalist again.

President Trump fired back at CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying.

While holding an afternoon news conference in India on Tuesday, Acosta asked the president if he would pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 elections, to which the president said, “I want no help from any country.”

“I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way. Didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?,” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting.

“Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said.

Trump and the CNN anchor have a history of engaging in heated debates.

After the 2018 midterm elections, Trump addressed a room of reporters at the White House to discuss the election results, and Acosta pressed for more than one question.

“CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person,” Trump told Acosta, who repeatedly interrupted the president. “The way you treat [then-White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee is horrible, and the way you treat other people is horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way.”

Well, what can I say! Acosta, you’re out of your league. You’ll never get the best of President Trump. He’s smarter and sharper than you ever were!

White House should revoke his press pass once again.

The left actually looks at Jim Acosta as a hero. How many retractions has CNN had to make within a year alone? Remember the Covington lawsuit? CNN lost! ABC sat on the Epstein story, and NBC sat on Weinstein. The media doesn’t care about the truth. They care about ratings and money.

The way Jim Acosta talks to the president is petty and unprofessional. Remember if anyone so much as questioned Obama's actions they were quickly called racist. How dare you disrespect Obama! Meanwhile, they say the most disgusting things and are totally antagonistic to Trump

Somebody needs to knock Acosta’s teeth down his lying throat.

I’m sure Trump enjoys slapping him around in front of everyone. I would. Perhaps he should give Acosta the floor and not let anyone else ask anything.

Sam Donaldson treated President Reagan the same way. Reagan rarely responded but just allowed Sam to make an ass out of himself.

Acosta is hated even at CNN. They agree with his politics; he’s just a complete a-hole.

It’s more than amusing, and I know Trump loves doing it. I just despise, loathe and hate Acosta.

Trump should ignore the bastard completely, eventually CNN will replace him on the Presidential beat.

Acosta is a juvenile, petty and corrupt. This is what so called American journalists are these days, Like zoo zoo zang of CBS, they are Left wing activists.

I caught that this morning. Before Trump even identified the network, by the tone and nature of the questions I guessed it was Jim Acosta.

Gee, I wonder what Hitler would have done to a reporter who called him a liar to his face.

“Somebody needs to knock Acosta’s teeth down his lying throat.”

He’s not worth it. Ignore him. He’s just a wannabe news guy who isn’t very good at his job.

Exactly, he's like the misbehaved child running around screaming for attention, just let him go.

Like FraudCo, Adolf would have never let an unsympathetic reporter in his presence.

Bernie Sanders would put Jim Acosta in a gulag if he did that to him.

Like a cat playing with a mouse. The cat doesn't necessarily want to kill the mouse; it just enjoys slapping it around.

I wonder what Hitler would have done to a reporter who called him a liar to his face.

Hitler would have had to do nothing, his propaganda army would have taken care of the problem.

What is really troubling is this Asshad does it on foreign soil. When it came time to depart, he would be standing on the tarmac breathing the Jet A exhaust.
