The entire world erupted in shock and awe after Trump held the press conference heard around the world.
The presser had something for everything.
Trump fans saw a smart leader more interested in peace than political nonsense.
Trump haters saw their conspiracy theories run wild and instantly took to social media to start the impeachment engine.
So it is understandable that the media lost their heads too during the extraordinary meeting.
That said, Jim Acosta probably wishes he could take this back as it is clearly out of bounds.
Monday on CNN, while reporting from Helsinki, White House correspondent Jim Acosta said President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin felt like a “wedding.”
Acosta said, “I don’t know which side is the bride and which side is the groom. It sort of feels like we’re at a wedding here. And on the other side of the room are our friends from the Russian Federation and other journalists who have been credentialed by the Kremlin.”
He added, “I think when the president of the United States tweets that the press in the United States are the enemy of the people and he attacks members of the press as ‘fake news’ and so on, I don’t think it would be a profile encouraged to come in here, give statements having assembled these members of the press and not take any questions. It seems to me when you dish it out, you ought to be able to take it. If the press is going to refer to the press corps of the United States as the enemy of the people, he owes it to the rest of us here to take a couple of questions.”
Is Jim suggesting a sexual relationship with Putin? If so, CNN needs to suspend him immediately.
