CNN looks for the cloud in the silver lining of any accomplishment that President Donald Trump has or any good thing he does.
“The Continental Army suffered a bitter winner at Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown,” he said.
“Our Army manned the air, it ran the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do,” he said in the speech.
Now obviously everyone knew that there were no airports during the Revolutionary War and that the president had made a mistake.
But Acosta, in his normal, arrogant, egotistical manner, decided he had to grandstand and “fact check” the president on it.
“Fact check: there were no airports during the Revolutionary War. The Wright Brothers ‘achieved the first successful airplane flights on December 17, 1903’ according to the National Park Service,” he said.

That is when former Secret Service agent and Fox News contributor Dan Bongino stepped in to fact check Acosta.
Is CNN biased against Trump?

“Fact Check: There are no journalists at CNN,” he said. And the people loved to roasting of the CNN Resistance poster child.

Acosta is not a journalist or reporter, he is a manufactured human!

Never, never anything to say except waiting to pounce on ANYTHING. No doubt he’s strutting around quite proud of himself for this big story. He’s pathetic.
