Jim Acosta, President Trump, America discussed on The Michael Knowles Show


All right, just got back in from our nation's capital. Had a good time walked around the gold house. You know, got to visit with the f. Young America's foundation gave a speech there on owning the lives and how wonderful it is. I think you can probably catch that online might be streaming at somewhere and I left. I left my compatriots there in DC. We were like ships passing in the night. Didn't get to see one another. I don't. I don't know if I'm more tired because I just got off the airplane and I came here or because I closed down Shelley's back room with Alli stuck last night. It was one of those two things. I'm not sure which one, but a lot of fun anyway, really enjoyed seeing f. and you know we're doing this tour in the fall with UAW Kofi on campus. So if you would like me to come spread the simple joys of go to your campus put in a request through the website yet dot org. I think there should be a link for for my tour there and you can just put in a request and we'll set it up. We're going to be picking those schools in Dade soon. So get that in pretty fast, but there's a lot to get. To this was really fun. You know, talk about a good news cycle to be hanging around DC. We have the one and only Jim Acosta if Jim Acosta did not exist, conservatives would have to create Jim Acosta the future daily wire White House correspondent Jim Acosta. He got into a little heat because he was at a Trump event. He was added Trump rally and some Trump supporters were echoing him. I wonder why I wonder why they would do that. Doesn't that seem so crazy. So then Jim Acosta went on television and started crying those mainstream media, crocodile tears here is Mr.. Kosta is covered callous. If these has become one of the president's favourite human punching bags CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, Jim, we've seen your your videos and I've, I've been to these events to I've met with countless Trump supporters even. I was shocked at the level of vitriol. That was aimed your way last night. Give us an idea of what it felt like to be in the middle of it. Well, I s I mean, honestly, it felt like we weren't in America anymore on. I don't know how to put a any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way. But unfortunately, what we've seen in this has been building for some time since the campaign I've been. I've been talking about this as an issue since the campaign when the president during the campaign referred to us as the dishonest media, the disgusting news media, liar, scum, and thieves, and so on. And then he rolled that right into the Oval Office and started calling us fake news, the enemy of the people. He is whipping these crowds up into a frenzy to the point where they, they really wanna come after us, and we, you know, we have these these bike rack like barriers around the press cages. We call it to protect us essentially from people who might take things too far. It's unfortunate because I try to calmly talk to a lot of these folks at the rally last night to say, listen, hey, you know, tell me what you want to talk about here. Why are you guys so upset with us? And they. Would kind of go through a list of questions. Most of most of the questions were about, why don't you guys report positive news about the president? I said, hey, you know what we do that we were reporting on this positive job numbers in the economy last Friday and might my sense of it SE is that the that these opinions that these folks have at these rallies, they're shaped by what they see in the primetime hours of Fox News and what they hear from some conservative news outlets that just sort of give them this daily diet of what they consider to be terrible things that we do over here. I at CNN it's very unfortunate, but it's it's, it's a pitting of American against American. And honestly, it needs to stop. Honestly, it needs to stop and I'm Ron burgundy. I'm Ron burgundy..
