I have said it before, I’ll say it again. Why in the hell is the WH letting this Acosta idiot in the press room? I now know…for comedy relief.
White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney explained the rules of Senate procedure to CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta after the journalist suggested Friday Republicans were at fault for the impending government shutdown.
“How can it be the Schumer shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate,” Acosta asked during the White House press conference.
Mulvaney shot back: “Come on you know the answer to that as well as anybody. I have to laugh when people say that … you know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass an appropriations bill.”
“I know that,” Acosta conceded.
So when you only have 51 votes in the Senate than you have to have Democrat support in order to … fund the government,” Mulvaney concluded.
Wonder how much Acosta gets paid to BE stupid. Obviously, he is not playing stupid! It’s simple math and yet Acosta still doesn’t get it. This guy is nothing more than a sad excuse for a reporter.
The only reason Acosta is still allowed to participate in the WH briefings is so he can continually prove to the viewers how biased and fake he and CNN are. Every time he shows his ass, he proves the president’s point, time after time.
But, being smart is not one of Acosta’s strengths. So, in all fairness, it is not hard to humiliate Acosta! After all, Sarah Huckabee Sanders does it on a daily basis.
