CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was widely blasted for interrupting Dr. Deborah Birx during Friday's coronavirus briefing to attack President Trump.
Birx took a moment at the podium to address the "who knew what when" concerns and said all the countries affected by the pandemic can "look back" to develop a timeline but not while "in the middle" of the crisis.
"We can talk about why didn't Italy do something or Spain do something or Germany do something, or we can really say right now -- we all can do something," Dr. Birx explained. "We can do the social distancing and all of the pieces that we know is starting to work around the globe in country after country. And then when we get through all of this, we can ask the questions about could we have done some piece of this better as a global community."
She then pivoted to the apparent errors the World Health Organization (WHO) made leading up to the outbreak in the U.S. as something that should be examined.
"I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban," Dr. Birx continued. "It wasn't until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission,"
Acosta quickly derailed her observations about WHO to knock President Trump.
"Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away," Acosta said. "It's April."

Or at least moved OUT of the front row
And ABCs Jonathan Karl.
Leave him in to continue eroding confidence in the fifth estate. Or get him out to improve confidence in the fifth estate. Hmmmm...
Why do they keep calling on these assholes? Shut them down. How many questions about what ours means?
WHY CALL ON THE LITTLE BASTARD TO BEGIN WITH????
Acosta is a useless canard on the entire WH press corps. Someone from the foreign press pool should take him out behind the woodshed for a butt-kicking or three.
He’s just a rude mother so-and-so. Shame on that judge for not letting them ban him.
This is the same POS who ripped the mic from the woman aid’s hand so he could verbally assault Sarah.
The News Business has no interest in Information. They have The Narrative, and that's better.
Send Abilio back to Cuba.
I don’t mind tough questions or questions I don’t like. I do despise questions to try and get points with your elite buds, a soundbite for the cause, gotcha moment, etc.
Yep, that’s the jerk.
Post of the thread...maybe of the day...I’ll check back later.
He keeps calling on him because he knows doing so is an asset to him and his reelection!!!
Its there new thing. They act like the impeachment never happened. They act like Trump was not roundly accused far and wipe for over reaction when he stopped flights on January 31st. They act like Trump did not order the set up of Army quarantine camps next to major airports in January. And that The WHO was already telling him it was no big deal, not yet a pandemic nor a health emergency.
Everyone can just look at all the quotes from Democrats at the time. But democrats don’t even remember impeachment. They don’t remember anything. So CNN can rewrite history and democrats don’t mind.
