Liberal Jim Acosta criticizes Daily Caller reporter for asking Trump about Democrats advancing socialist ideas!

The liberal media just cannot stand it when someone from the right is allowed to ask questions of the president at these press conferences.

Today, Trump called on Daily Caller reporter Saagar Enjeti during his press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Enjeti asked two questions of Trump and one of Bolsonaro.

After the press conference crotchety old Jim Acosta criticized Enjeti while on-air with CNN, saying Enjeti did nothing but serve up a softball to Trump:

“The question was asked in a way that really teed it up like a game of tee-ball here in the Rose Garden. The president was just sort of served up a softball there…”

First things first. The question about Democrats and socialism was not asked of President Trump. Enjeti asked that question of President Bolsonaro, who then answered it. Trump never addressed it himself. Maybe Acosta had some cotton in his ears or something, but he clearly wasn’t paying attention.

Secondly, the two questions Enjeti asked Trump were 1) if Trump supports the Democratic idea of expanding the Supreme Court and 2) if Trump supports Senator Josh Hawley’s idea that social media companies need to be held liable for the content that is on their platform. I didn’t think either of those were ‘tee-balls’ like Acosta suggested about the last question.

As I alluded to above, I really think this is just the liberal media hating to see a reporter from a conservative outlet get to ask questions from the president on what they feel is their turf. The new media is here and people like Acosta really need to get over it. If not, we can always call him a waaaambulance to deal with this hurt feelings.

Here’s the questioning from Enjeti if you want to hear it. It’s cued up to 17:32

  1. You gotta love (sarc) these freaking Liberals…..they are applauding and pushing the Socialist agenda…even recommending it daily on air, but don’t DARE call them Socialists!

  2. Sounds like a case of “no fairsies” from Acosta! I will tell you like I tell my whining students, ” suck it up buttercup!” Put on you big girl panties and move forward!

  3. They call him “Tater.”

    Yeah, Tater.

    Tater the Reporter. He got it goin’ on.

    Tater the Accoster. He grab ’em by de arm.

    Tater knows. Coz he tight with the bros.

    Tater, people. He own the owns on all tha shows.

  4. The only thing Jim Acosta is good for is turning oxygen into carbon dioxide for plants.

  5. I got a notification on my Wall Street Journal app that Biden has decided to get in.
    Sorry this is off topic.

    Just what we need…

    1. They’re all the same person – there is no variation in the D candidates’ policies except Bob Frank. He doesn’t know what he thinks or stands for until he is told.

  6. Yeah, sure Jimbo. Kinda like all those “hardball” questions you & your ilk used to grill President Obama with, eh? Brutal to the extreme. You & Chris Matthews.

  7. Jealousy is an ugly trait to have Jim Acaustic. Just like all the other ugly traits he has. And they`re all ugly through to the bone.

  8. I kind of wish Donald would have fit the term “court packing” in there somewhere in his response to that first question.

  9. The president was just sort of served up a softball there…”

    Third, ffs it was spaghetti every day at the Obama white house, what with all the meatballs the media served up to him at every presser.

  10. O/T: I heard on the radio Beto saying something about wanting the people to shape him into the president that they want. From now on, I’m calling him Play-Doh O’Rourke.

    1. “I’m Gumby, dammit!”

      “I don’t really care that much about anything, except for being President that is.”

    2. @dr-strangelove Beta Boy is one strange dude. God forbid he should get elected. However, I don’t think he will even get the nomination.

    3. @dr-strangelove : And then they call me a conspiracy theorist? Robert F is saying that he is a shapeshifting reptile running for President?

    1. An a$$–with his head up his…wait, is that like a snake swallowing its tail???
      Why yes, yes it is.

  11. He just schooled Acaustic how to be professional. And two excellent questions that I am glad someone finally asked.

  12. This is just like that time when Obama was asked what enchanted him about being in office.

  13. So Trump took a question from a conservative reporter. And Accosta is angry?
    Will the answer even be on MSM?
