Kirsters Baish| President Donald Trump made CNN’s Jim Acosta look like a total fool when he refused to answer his question during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Theresa May in the United Kingdom. When it was Trump’s turn to pick someone from the press to ask a question, CNN’s Jim Acosta took it upon himself to scream out, “Since you attacked CNN can I ask you a question?”
He then begged to ask President Trump a question over and over as Trump picked Fox News’ John Roberts to ask a question.
Take a look at the video below:

“John Roberts, go ahead John,” President Trump yelled over Acosta’s constant pleas.
“Can I ask you a question,” Acosta still pushed.
“No, no,” answered President Trump.
“CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions- I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN,” Trump finally insisted.
“John Roberts of Fox. Let’s go to- Let’s go to a real network,” Trump then stated.
Acosta quickly retorted back, “Well we’re a real network too sir.”
It was then that Roberts asked President Trump his question.
Jim Acosta simply shouldn’t be allowed at any White House press briefings or events ever again. The man is a constant annoyance, and he is always trying to get under President Trump’s skin. On top of that, he represents a network that is constantly spreading fake news to the people of America, and the people of America are over it.
Breitbart News reported that during the second quarter of 2018, Fox News network crushed not only cable news ratings, but cable ratings in general. CNN, however, fell flat, coming in last place. Fox News celebrated their eighth quarter in a row as the most watched cable network. They had an average of 1.409 million daily viewers, which is almost as many viewers as CNN and MSNBC had when combined. MSNBC has just around 930,000 viewers. But CNN is really losing it. They had an average of just around 658,000.
