Skip to comments.Video Proves Acosta Lied [semi-satire]
Posted on 11/10/2018 7:30:34 AM PST by John Semmens
This week, CNN's Jim Acosta lost his White House press pass. The events leading up to this began with his abuse of the press conference's opportunity to question President Trump live in front of multimedia. Given an opportunity to ask a question Acosta launched into a lecture about how the caravan from Guatemala was not an invasion. Trump attempted to agree to disagree, but Acosta persisted in berating him. Having gone way past a reasonable time with the microphone, Trump asked Acosta to let another member of the media have a turn. Acosta continued to rant and an intern attempted to pass the microphone to someone else.
Afterwards, Acosta maintained that he never touched the young woman. However, a video of the event clearly shows Acosta pushing the intern away. CNN then claimed that "the video must have been doctored because Jim doesn't lie."
An incredulous Trump exclaimed "give me a break. CNN is a perpetual fountain of lies when it comes to the news. The demand that their articulated lies ought to refute video evidence to the contrary is absurd." Technical experts who examined the video concluded that the video didn't appear to have been altered: "Slowing down the action and zooming in for a close-up is not an alteration. This video technique is often done by CNN itself. To claim in this case that it is an alteration is profoundly dishonest."

Finally... the 9 second UNALTERED truth...
You gotta try harder to make this satire.
Except for the Presidents exact words this satire has more truth than anything from the LSM.
Maybe you could add that Acosta donned a witchs hat and Trump had to get Barron to crack open a Harry Potters book to get the spell to finally get him out of the WH.
Hey, its as believable as anything CNN prints.
Now... the unfunny TRUTH.. BEFORE Acosta...
(this is what the OTHER reporters think of Acosta)

But Here’s the REAL video
That’s silly. He was attacked by the staffer at Trump’s direction so he’s the victim due to oppression of the press and censorship by the current administration. At least that’s their claim.
That I'll believe when hell freezes over.
Here’s why our side is wrong about the assault part.
Assault is the wrong word. Resistance is the proper word.
Now, is it proper for him to resist in front of the president in the White House? No. Why?
Think about it in terms of “where does it end.” A good analogy is the way flight attendants maintain order on a plane. If they were to allow people to in any way assert their “rights” on a flight there would be a slow and steady growth of resistance that would eventually lead to chaos.
AntiFa's coming to get you for that.
Do I have a surprise for them.
Not for them. ;-)
Not for them. ;-)
