Well, Jimbo Acosta has stayed quiet for too long, it seems. Having made himself infamous and likely one of the leaders in aiding CNN to the bottom of the pile, is at it again. At today's presss briefing his question to the President was...

"What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis?" Acosta asked. He referenced earlier quotes from the president, including when Trump said roughly a month ago, "It's going to disappear. One day, it's like a miracle, it will disappear."

Hmmmm. Well, let's look back at what CNN said in the last week of February:

On February 21, CNN claimed “racist assaults and ignorant attacks against Asians” were spreading faster than the coronavirus itself.

According to CNN’s “experts,” rampant ignorance and misinformation about coronavirus has led to racist and xenophobic attacks against anyone who looks East Asian.

Apparently, the real plague in America isn’t the deadly virus that is shutting down the global economy and killing thousands, it’s actually racism.

No mention of this by Acosta.

But the Prez calmly took the asininity in stride by responding...

"Well, it will go away and I do want them to stay calm, and we are doing a great job. If you look at those individual statements, they're all true. Stay calm, it will go away -- you know that it is going away, and... we're going to have a great victory. And, it's people like you and CNN that say things like that -- it's why people just don't want to listen to CNN anymore. You could ask a normal question."

So once again, the White House Press Corp CNN rep cements his position as the supreme village idiot. But hey, this is where CNN is doing their part to improve this President's approval rating and aiding him in his re-election bid.
