CNN’s Acosta Compares Himself To Whipped Slaves

This is almost unbelievable.

Let’s see, one side of the equation has an innocent people being kidnapped from their homes and sold into slavery by Moslem slave traders and their own chieftains.

Then many died on their way across the Atlantic, shipped by greedy New England slave runners. Then they were forced into centuries of brutal thralldom by US Southern whites too lazy and shiftless to work their own land.  Then emancipation and another century of Jim Crow and the Klan…On the other side? Jim Acosta’s hurt feelings. Totally equal, right?

FNC: “CNN host Jim Acosta appeared to compare the derision he endured at the hands of former President Donald Trump to being physically abused on Monday.

Acosta regularly clashed with the former president during press conferences and other events when he would answer questions from the media. Trump used the term ‘fake news’ to describe CNN and Acosta’s reporting, and the relationship bottomed out when Acosta’s hard pass was temporarily revoked after he refused to give up the microphone amid asking Trump questions following the 2018 midterms.

During Monday’s handover between his fill-in hosting gig and ‘Don Lemon Tonight,’ Acosta said he still had ‘marks on my back’ from his tenure at the White House, seemingly referring to the tumultuous relationship he had with Trump, as well as the criticism he often received from the latter.”

“As someone who witnessed the unraveling of our democracy, had a front row seat to it … is it better? Worse? Can we turn this around in your estimation? You were the White House correspondent for the entire Trump reign,” fellow CNN host Don Lemon asked Acosta.

Too which Acosta replied in full over the top self pity mode, “Yeah. And I’ve got the marks on my back to prove it, Don.” What the what?! Unless Acosta is referring to his personal life, that was a very crass thing to say. Those who really had scarred backs didn’t advertise it so blithely. He went on, in typical pomposity.

“To some extent things are better. I mean, today we had the president of the United States refer to a reporter as an S.O.B. You know, Don, you and I got called a lot worse back in the day. We never got an apology. I don’t remember that from the commander in chief. So maybe things are a little bit better to some extent,” Acosta said. The point Acosta misses is, Doocy didn’t deserve the insult. He did.
