HELL FREEZES OVER: Trump Thanks ‘CRAZY’ Jim Acosta Over ‘Schumer Shutdown’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.23.18

President Trump stunned the mainstream media and political pundits Tuesday morning, thanking CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta for admitting that the Democrats were to blame for the three-day long ‘Schumer Shutdown.’

The President praised Acosta on social media, saying “even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees” that President Trump and GOP Congressional leaders defeated the Democratic filibuster and re-opened the federal government.

“Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: ‘Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again…Schumer and Dems caved…gambled and lost.’ Thank you for your honesty Jim!” tweeted the President.

The thawing of relations between the President and Acosta likely won’t last. Just last week President Trump tossed the CNN correspondent from a press briefing; pointing at the door and telling Acosta to “get out.”

ACOSTA'S EDUCATION: Mick Mulvaney SCHOOLS Jim Acosta Using SIMPLE MATH

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney shot down CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta during the daily press briefing on Friday, schooling the reporter with simple math on why Democrats are needed to keep the government fully funded.

Mulvaney was taking questions from reporters when Acosta pounced on the budget director’s use of the term “Schumer Shutdown” to describe Democratic opposition to passing a short-term spending bill.

“How can it be the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate,” asked a bewildered Acosta.

“Come on you know the answer to that as well as anybody,” Mulvaney fired-back. “I have to laugh when people say that […] You know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass an appropriations bill.”

“You know that, right?” pressed Mulvaney. “So, if you only have 51 votes in the Senate, then you have to have Democrat support to fund the government. So that’s the answer to your question.”

CNN SNOWFLAKE: Jim Acosta WHINES White House ‘DROWNING OUT’ His Voice

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.18

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta publicly bemoaned his treatment by White House officials on social media Tuesday, complaining that press aides “shouted in his face” and that it was behavior one “would see in a different country.”

The fierce opponent of President Trump vented his frustrations on twitter this week, whining that he “has never encountered” this sort of resistance from White House officials and that it “certainly” not something one would see in the United States.

“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before… What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.,” Acosta tweeted.

The CNN correspondent routinely feuds with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other Trump officials –including the President himself. Last week, Huckabee Sanders mocked Acosta to his face during a daily press briefing, saying the reporter’s numbers “would be higher” if President Trump watched CNN.
