Ben Shapiro has a running joke on his podcast every time CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta is in the news for whatever reason: ladies, if you’re looking for that special someone, find yourself a man who loves you as much as Jim Acosta loves himself.
It’s good for a laugh until you actually watch Acosta do his job. This isn’t a joke — the man really seems to believe that he’s God’s gift to America. Between his refusal to hand over a microphone to a White House aide, to his bizarre video by the border wall pretending to be upset because there isn’t any crime there, the fact that this man has a career in journalism seems to be nothing short of a miracle. And believe us when we say that this was not a gift America wanted.
For our purposes, however…he’s the gift that keeps on giving.
You see, the man is so obnoxious with his inflated sense of self-importance, that it actually makes for pretty great TV when things don’t go his way. And for what it’s worth, President Donald Trump seems like he’s always in the mood to mess with him — and we couldn’t be more thankful for it.
What you’re about to see is just a recent sample of Acosta being shut down by the commander-in-chief in front of the whole country. It’s happened many times before, and some of those incidents are included in this video as well.
