“Acosta’s Complaint”

New Ben Garrison Cartoon, “Acosta’s Complaint”

 

Whitehouse correspondent Little Jimmy Acosta complained to Whitehouse Press Secretary Sarah Sanders about Trump calling fake news the enemy of the American people.

 

Sarah then gave Little Jimmy an adult sized wedgie by reminding him that she and her family have been attacked and chased out of public restaurants by unhinged lefties egged on by his network CNN.

 

Little Jimmy Acosta,

crying in his pasta.

Ashes, ashes..

CNN Sucks!

Maybe Little Jimmy Acosta would be taken more seriously if he acted like an adult and not a angry toddler.

 

Little Jimmy Acosta come blow your horn,

FakeNews is on cable,

And journalism is scorned,

And where is Little Jimmy that lies to the sheep?

he’s in back of the press room-

fast asleep.

Rep. Maxine Waters, whose call for public protests of Trump administration officials has triggered a debate over civility in politics, said Thursday that she has canceled events in Texas and Alabama this weekend after a “very serious death threat” was made against her.

In a statement reported by CNN, the California Democrat said that after President Donald Trump took aim at her Monday on Twitter, “even more individuals are leaving threatening messages and sending hostile mail to my office.”

“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled this weekend,” Waters said in the statement.

A Waters spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

Waters had been scheduled to speak Saturday morning at the annual legislative conference of the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women in Birmingham, Alabama. The organization’s president, Karen Camper, told the Alabama news website AL.com that Waters had canceled her appearance because of security concerns.

The details of Waters’ Texas event were not immediately known.

Trump to Maxine Waters: ‘Careful what you wish for,’ after she calls for harassment of his Cabinet »

Waters has been rebuked by Republicans and Democrats after calling at a Los Angeles rally last weekend for demonstrators to harass Trump’s Cabinet officials wherever they go amid an escalating debate over immigration policy.

Taking to Twitter, Trump fired back by calling Waters “an extraordinarily low IQ person” and warning her to “be careful what you wish for.”

According to CNN, Waters said in the statement that Capitol Police are investigating several other threats in which people have vowed “to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”

Eva Malecki, a Capitol Police spokeswoman, said the department does not comment on ongoing investigations.

The news comes on the same day that a gunman opened fire in the offices of the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, killing five people and gravely injuring several others.

On his radio show Thursday afternoon, Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared to suggest that Waters was partly responsible for the shooting.

“I’ve been saying now for days that something horrible was going to happen because of the rhetoric,” he said. “Really, Maxine?”

Don Lemon’s boyfriend implied ‘liberal’ CNN star went easy on pal Avenatti!!

Don Lemon’s boyfriend told a reporter the CNN star gave Stormy Daniels’ attorney the kid-glove treatment in a Monday interview that followed a blistering expose, and referred to the news network as “liberal media” in a baffling exchange.

Tim Malone, a media ad sales executive, made the shocking disclosures in a Twitter direct message conversation with Daily Caller reporter Joe Simonson. It came after Michael Avenatti appeared on “CNN Tonight” on the heels of a Daily Caller report on Avenatti’s shady past dealings. Lemon served up softballs, and Malone had a ready explanation.

“Malone also appears to believe that Avenatti has befriended the liberal media, but that his time as journalists’ golden boy may be running out,” Simonson wrote in an exclusive story about the strange colloquy initiated by Malone.

Prior to the appearance, Avenatti, who represents the porn star who claims to have had a fling with President Trump, had accused The Daily Caller of publishing “hit pieces.” He told Simonson’s colleague, Peter Hasson, in an email that he would sue his colleagues and the publication for defamation if they didn’t stop writing “lies and defamatory statements.”

In the Monday night interview, Lemon gently broached the issue, asking Avenatti about his threats against the conservative news site. Avenatti replied cryptically that “there is (sic) good journalists, and there is (sic) bad journalists,” during a long-winded answer in which he did not elaborate on his grievance. Lemon didn’t push back about why Avenatti felt the Daily Caller wronged him in its expose.

In the Twitter exchange that followed the interview, Simonson asked Malone if he thought Lemon erred by not pressing Avenatti.

“I guess, yeah,” Malone told Simonson, according to the reporter. “Ha, he won’t [sue]. I think it’s all a game. Who knows?”

Malone initially declined to elaborate, but then offered an explanation as to why Lemon tossed softballs to Avenatti.

“You don’t think Avenatti is smart enough to try and befriend the liberal media?” he said, according to Simonson, implying that Lemon and the attorney are friends.

Simonson says he then asked Malone how his boyfriend could be friends with Avenatti “considering his intimidation tactics against other journalists.”

According to Simonson, Malone said the media is going “way too easy” on the porn lawyer, and feels the Daily Caller has been “fair.”

“Honestly, I think it’s all a game, everyone is profiting, and doing what rates for their audience,” Malone said, according to Simonson. “People need to dig more. But they are starting.”

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As for Simonson, when reached for comment about the bewildering interview with Malone, he issued the following statement: “I was and remain confused.”
