CNN’s Jim Acosta Breaks Own Record: Lies 3 times in One Tweet–Doesn’t Apologize
CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted fake news containing no less than 3 different lies in 140 characters about President Trump not seeing Congressman Scalise in the hospital after yesterday’s shooting, then refused to apologize for it.
After reports emerged that Trump had visited Scalise at at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, Jim Acosta lied about talking with a White House official, lied about Donald Trump not visiting the Hospital and lied about Donald Trump not going into the room to see the congressman— “WH official on hospital visit: “President Trump did not meet with Scalise and did not go into the room where Scalise is being treated.”
Acosta was quickly corrected by another reporter before deleting his original tweet.
Acosta later had to admit that the lied, once again, and he never spoke to any “White House official.” Then he did like all good leftists do and started blaming his inaccurate tweet on another reporter who sent him an email via press pool.
This underscores once again that Acosta is a far-left activist posing as a journalist.
Acosta is clearly still butt-hurt over President Trumps election and several run-ins with Trump, including when Trump refused to take his question at a January press conference when Trump called CNN “fake news”.
The CNN reporter has proven Trump’s point by deliberately circulating fake news about the president not visiting Scalise in hospital when he did.
Acosta, whose pinned tweet reads, “We are real news Mr. President,” immediately tweeted the false claim about Trump not meeting Scalise because he wanted to make Trump look bad and very few of his followers care that he’s a compulsive liar including CNN.
A cursory check would have confirmed that the claim was false, but Acosta was more concerned about embarrassing Trump than reporting the truth – on the very same day that a hysterical, deranged anti-Trump leftist tried to massacre Republican lawmakers.
Let that sink in.
