Trump scolds CNN’s Jim Acosta, as angel moms confront reporter in Rose Garden: ‘You have an agenda’

President Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta on Friday during the president’s Rose Garden announcement that he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, telling the reporter he has “an agenda” — before angel moms in attendance confronted the chief CNN White House correspondent. The clash came as Acosta challenged Trump over what he described as a “disconnect” concerning his description of illegal immigration. “You are presenting information about what’s happening at the border, calling it an invasion, talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on, and yet there is a lot of reporting out there, a lot of crime data out there … that shows border crossings at a near record low,” Acosta said. Trump fired back, “That’s because of us,” as the CNN reporter attempted to talk over the president. “Excuse me,” Trump intervened. “It’s still massive numbers of crossings.” Acosta – who has emerged as a hero among progressives for attacking Trump and members of his administration when they’re available to the press – then said stats show “undocumented immigrants committing crime at lower levels than native-born Americans.” Trump rebuked Acosta by asking, “You don’t really believe that stats, do you?” As Acosta tried to keep talking, Trump repeated himself. “Do you really believe that stat? Take a look at our federal prisons,” Trump said as he gestured Acosta to hurry up with his longwinded question. “What do you say to critics who say that you are creating a national emergency? That you’re concocting a national emergency here to get your wall,” Acosta said. Trump pointed to angel moms in attendance, asking them for their thoughts. “You think I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons,” Trump said. “OK, Because your question is a very political question because you have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.” Trump told Acosta the statistics he provided were “wrong” and told him to take a look at the federal prison population for proof. “See how many of them,percentage-wise, are illegal aliens,” Trump said. “Just see, go ahead and see. It’s a fake question.” Acosta was subsequently confronted by the angel moms in attendance, after the press conference. As angel moms confronted the CNN reporter, he invited them to appear on the network in the background of a live shot. “There is no attempt whatsoever to diminish what they’ve gone through, or take away what they’ve gone through, but as you heard in that question that I had with the president … it was really about the facts and the data,” Acosta said on CNN following his exchange with Trump. “Some of these folks came up to me right after this press conference … they’re holding up these pictures of loved ones who lost their lives.” An angel mom then discussed that a previously deported illegal alien murdered her son. “President Trump is completely correct on this issue, we need to protect this country,” the angel mom told Acosta.

Take that Jim!!  lol   Jim Acosta is SUCH a nauseating, self-righteous, liberal agenda pushing tool..  Kudos to these “Angel Moms” for putting Jim in his place.  Excellent!!    🙂

Bill Maher accused of making fried chicken joke to black Republican congressman

Comedian Bill Maher was accused of racism after making a fried chicken joke to a black Republican during an interview on Friday’s HBO show of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd came on the show to discuss the border wall, which he opposes. The host went on to ask the congressman why he remains a member of the GOP and sides with “traitor” President Trump. “I’m a Republican because I believe in limited government,” Hurd responded, prompting Maher to interject and accuse Republicans of not actually supporting smaller government. “I’m just asking why you’re Republican? Because they’re not good at the debt, that was their big thing. You said limited government, they don’t do that.” Maher said. “What’s in it for you? What is in the Republican Party for you? You were in the CIA!” Hurd responded: “I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at 4 o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland.” That’s when Maher made the joke. “That’s where you’d collect it, huh? Wow. By the Popeyes Chicken?” Following the exchange, people on Twitter accused Maher of making a racist joke to the congressman. “Here’s Bill Maher lobbing a clearly racist joke to GOP Congressman Will Hurd, asking him if he gathered undercover intel for the CIA out ‘by the Popeye’s Chicken,’” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck tweeted. “Bill Maher is gonna be Bill Maher. Nobody’s canceling HBO over this, so he’s just gonna keep on being Bill Maher and accusing a black congressman of gathering intelligence behind a Popeyes Chicken,” tweeted Gabriel Malor. “Bill Maher insults black CIA vet by suggesting he picked up tips ‘behind the Popeye’s Chicken’ same day as Ralph Northam admits he submitted racist af blackface Klan photo to yearbook – it’s almost like this is all a game to them,” tweeted the Federalist publisher Ben Domenech. Maher has long been criticized for what some have described as racially charged language on his show. About two years ago, Maher faced calls to have his show scrapped after he said the N-word during an interview with Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse. He apologized for the use of the word that time.

..and he got away with it because HBO is crazy liberal, and so is Bill.  And, he’ll get away with this brazenly racist quip.  Just another example of the glaring hypocrisy and double standard on parade courtesy of liberal elitist HollyWEIRD.  Just fathom if a conservative talk show host had made a similar crack…OR if a Republican governor had the yearbook scandal that Gov. Northam (D-VA) is dealing with?  They’d be gone that day.  Period.  And, we ALL know it.  Gov. Northam is hunkering down and saying, “hell no, I won’t go.”  And, Bill Maher will continue to be the obnoxious tool he is…and get away with saying, well…just about anything.  Typical..  Of course, here at The Daily Buzz we’ll continue to document the hypocrisy and double standard of the dominantly liberal mainstream media and self-righteous, liberal elitists in HollyWEIRD.

Analysis: Washington Post Political Reporter Calls Trump Supporters ‘Rubes’

The far-left Washington Post’s Dave Weigel called President Trump’s supporters “rubes” during an appearance on a left-wing podcast. In response, the Post told the Daily Caller, which first reported on the incident, that “We do not think our reporters should be using derogatory terms to characterize anyone [and the] matter is being handled internally.” Weigel appeared on the left-wing podcast Chapo Trap Host and in reference to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) handling of the partial government shutdown and the funding for President Trump’s wall, said that McConnell “is very good at identifying what the rubes want to hear.” McConnell didn’t care about the wall… he’s very good at identifying what the rubes want to hear, because all he cares about is getting enough judges to strike down campaign-finance law, strike down gun law, strike down health care, etc. All of his brilliant tactics are like, ‘What if we don’t have a vote on this? What if we just sit here for two years and don’t have a vote on this?’ On the wall, like, ‘What if we don’t do that? What if we just don’t do that? Everyone go away so I can confirm more judges.” Like much of the establishment media, the anti-Trump Post has increasingly tolerated and even encouraged slurs against those on the political right, most especially President Trump and his supporters. Earlier this month, the Post published a column arguing it was okay to call Trump a “motherfucker” and even after the boys from Covington Catholic High School were vindicated by uncut video, the Post continues to publish smears about these kids, who are guilty of nothing more than being white, Christian Trump supporters. The Post has also openly called for the harassment of Trump supporters, up to and including violence. Back in July, the Post’s Jennifer Rubin publicly called for the public harassment of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. In June, the increasingly unhinged Post published a story advocating for the universal hatred of all men and attempted to blame Trump for creating a hurricane. The Post has also published call for violence against the political right, as we saw in a piece published in mid-2017. The Post was already aware of Weigel’s long history of smearing the political right. He was forced to resign from the Post for exactly that back in 2010. The Post rehired him a few years later, and now, here he is, back to doing it again when he believes no one is looking. But there will be no repercussions this time. Compared to the open calls for hate, harassment, and violence the Post is publishing and spreading nowadays, Weigel’s elite biases seem pretty tame.

Agreed…  Thanks to John Nolte for that excellent analysis exposing the extreme liberal bias of the Washington Post, and Dave Weigel.  The Washington Post has been a key member of the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  But, they’ve gone WAY off the deep end since Trump became president.  And, their arrogant elitism is SO offensive.  Keep in mind, if you’re a Trump supporter, or voted for him..  Dave just called you a “rube” which is basically calling you an uneducated, country hick…and he’s looking down his nose at you.  What a self-righteous, arrogant, elitist, prick.

CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black

It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,” Webb said. “That’s a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” said Martin – who also hosts CBS’ “Face the Truth.” A dumbfounded Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Martin responded, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.” The Fox Nation host then explained that he was actually black. “I stand corrected,” Martin said. Webb scolded Martin for running with an “assumption” and she then blamed her team for providing inaccurate information. “That’s actually insulting,” Webb said. “It is and I apologize,” Martin replied. “I was given wrong information.” Martin’s spokesperson declined a request for comment.

We’ll sorta, kinda..gice Areva the benefit of the doubt here for having “wrong info.”  And, she DID apologize.  Fair enough.  But, she should probably fire the staffer(s) who provided the “wrong info.”  That being said..  This illustrates the pitfalls of constantly playing the race card; something that CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media do on a daily basis.  At some point it’s gonna backfire.  Such was the case here.  The ASSumption by the folks at CNN was that their conservative guest from Fox Nation MUST be a white male.  So, they prepped for the show based on that ASSumption because it fit their extreme liberal racial template.  DOH!!

Analysis: Networks Trashed Trump With 90% Negative Spin in 2018, But Did It Matter?

At the midpoint of Donald Trump’s first term, the establishment media’s obvious hostility shows no signs of relenting, but polls show this negative coverage has had no discernible impact on the public’s attitudes toward the President. Since January 20, 2017, the Media Research Center has analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, seen by approximately 23 million people each night.

San Diego-Based KUSI: CNN Disinvited Our Journalist Because We Reported Border Wall ‘Does Work’

KUSI News, a television news outlet based in San Diego, California, said Thursday that CNN invited — and subsequently rescinded the invitation — for it to provide a reporter to give “a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown.” The San Diego-based outfit speculated on CNN’s rationale for the decision: “We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work. We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.” KUSI News shared a segment of its programming related to CNN’s editorial move.

CNN.. Typical FAKE NEWS!  They only want to air information which comports to their extreme liberal narrative.  They knowingly/actively censor, or ridicule, any dissenting view that conflicts with their liberal agenda.  We have documented time and again this pattern by CNN, here at The Daily Buzz.  It is total garbage.

Kellyanne Conway embarrasses CNN’s Jim Acosta during heated exchange: ‘You’re such a smarta–‘

Kellyanne Conway embarrassed CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press gaggle on Tuesday, referring to him as a “smarta–” unliked by other reporters. Acosta asked Conway if she could promise that President Trump would tell the truth when addressing the nation on Tuesday night. “Yes, Jim,” Conway shot back, “Can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention ‘God’ to you?” Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does. “Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day,” Conway said. “You’re such a smarta– most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.” Conway then told Acosta that “a lot of these people” don’t like him, while pointing to his peers. “Don’t you put it back in my face for all corrections your network needs to issue,” she continued, mocking CNN. “I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothered to go on, and the disrespect you show to me personally, I’ll look past it.” Acosta replied, “Ma’am.” “Don’t call me ma’am,” Conway responded. Last year Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a Nov. 7 press conference. During the now-infamous moment, Acosta refused to pass the microphone to a female White House aide.

Good for Kellyanne!!  Jim is such an obnoxious, grandstanding, tool…
