That's what happens when you're a lying partisan ass with an agenda. Maybe when he acts like a real journalist they'll let him ask Q's.

CNNís Jim Acosta complains about Rose Garden press conference where he didn't get a question

CNNís Jim Acosta didnít get chosen to ask a question during President Trumpís Rose Garden press conference with Brazil president Jair Bolsaonaro on Tuesday, but he managed to complain about a reporter who did.

Daily Caller White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti was allowed to ask multiple questions, including whether or not the Supreme Court will be expanded and Trumpís thoughts on the state of social media.

Following the press conference, Acosta accused Enjeti of asking Trump a softball question, but it seems the CNN reporter wasnít paying close attention because the question was directed at the Brazilian president, as opposed to Trump.

ďThe 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, when he was asked whether or not the Democrats are advancing a lot of socialist ideas. You heard Bolsaonaro go off on that as well,Ē Acosta said on CNN immediately after the press conference.

Acosta accused Enjeti of lobbing an easy question about socialism to Trump, but the Daily Caller reporter didnít ask Trump the question about socialism. After Enjeti asked Trump a pair of questions about the Supreme Court and social media, he directed his third question to Bolsaonaro.

ďPresident Bolsaonaro, in another question on the 2020 election, a number of Democrats who are running to replace the president have embraced or considered socialist ideas. Youíve spoken critically of that in the past,Ē Enjeti said. ďIf a socialist, or a candidate who embraces socialism were to replace the president, how would it affect your relations with the United States?Ē

Bolsaonaro answered that he would respect whoever emerges as the next president but expect Trump to be re-elected. Trump did not respond to Enjetiís question about socialism despite Acostaís claim.

CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.

Acosta Ė who has emerged as a hero among progressives for attacking Trump and members of his administration when theyíre available to the press Ė was confronted by angel moms last month after he challenged Trump over what he described as a "disconnect" in his description of illegal immigration. Acosta has also been known to offer his opinion when called on during similar events.

Last year, Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a Nov. 7 press conference. During one now-infamous moment, Acosta refused to pass the microphone to a female White House aide.

Acostaís press pass was restored on Nov. 19 after CNN argued that keeping him out of the White House violated the network and Acostaís First and Fifth Amendment rights.

To coincide with Acosta being allowed to return to the White House, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders implemented a series of rules to govern White House press conferences going forward.

The CNN reporter has been praised by liberal comedians such as Jimmy Kimmel, and even appeared in the most recent season of the Netflix political drama ďHouse of Cards.Ē

Acosta is an anti-American activist posing as a journalist. Not every reporter is called on during every press conference, so he isn't as entitled as he apparently thinks he is; he's just a whining, anti-Trump critic.

Real journalists should be offended that the term "Journalist" was used in anyway to describe Jim Acosta unless it was to say that "Jim Acosta is nothing comparable to a Journalist".

Poor little Jimmy Acosta, he has to confront the fact he is not the center of attention at WH press conferences. It is a privilege to be called on by the President. If he'd obeyed basic rules of civility, it might be possible to feel a bit of sympathy but he decided to be a jerk instead of a reporter.

You don't suppose that has something to do with it?

Acosta has no intention of asking a question. He wants the bully pulpit.

I'm curious, how you want to use it? What hard things do you want to tackle at this point?"
