Trump Snaps At CNN’s Jim Acosta After He Corners POTUS Over His Friendly Relationship With Dictators

He can't stand to be called out!

Our sad excuse for a president doesn’t even attempt to hide his coziness with dictators around the world. While at the G20 Summit in Japan, he could hardly be bothered to shake hands with the Japanese Promise Minister and was blatantly disrespectful to Spain’s leader — both of which have left-leaning views that completely contradict everything Donald stands for. I.e. cruelty and inhumanity against anyone that’s not straight and white — but he had no trouble cozying right on up to  Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman and cracking jokes with Russian President Vladimir Putin over his election interference.

Donald held a press conference before he departed from Japan for his date with Kim Jong Un at the Korean borders, and CNN’s Jim Acosta jumped on the opportunity to call POTUS out on his bullshit, questioning his public coziness with dictators — which led to a dispute between the two and, of course, ended with Trump insulting Acosta.

“You did seem to be joking there with the Russian president. Are we taking that to be wrong? And what is it with your coziness with some of these dictators and autocrats at these summits?” Acosta confronted Trump. “With Mohammad bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, when you were asked about the case of Jamal Khashoggi, you did not respond to that question: were you afraid of offending him on that subject?”


“No, not at all. I don’t really care about offending people,” Trump fired back in response. “I sort of thought you’d know that.”

“And, by the way, congratulations. I understand you have a book. Is it doing well?” Trump asked sarcastically.

Acosta fired back perfectly, pointing out to the president that his book, which is highly critical of Donald’s administration, is actually doing very well. To which, Trump of course smirked and asked, “Really?”

Donald fired another shot off at the CNN reporter claiming, “I get along with everybody, except you people, actually. I get along with a lot of people.”

He gets along with everybody so long as they’re kissing his ass or he thinks he can learn how to be a real dictator from there — There. Fixed it for him.
