VIDEO: CNN’s Jim Acosta complains about Rose Garden press conference where he didn’t get a question
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
CNN’s Jim Acosta didn’t get chosen to ask a question during President Trump’s Rose Garden press conference with Brazil president Jair Bolsaonaro on Tuesday, but he managed to complain about a reporter who did.
Daily Caller White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti was allowed to ask multiple questions, including whether or not the Supreme Court will be expanded and Trump’s thoughts on the state of social media.
The article goes on to state the following:
Following the press conference, Acosta accused Enjeti of asking Trump a softball question, but it seems the CNN reporter wasn’t paying close attention because the question was directed at the Brazilian president, as opposed to Trump.
“The question was asked in a way that really teed it up, like a game of tee-ball here in the Rose Garden. The president was just sort of served up a softball, there, when he was asked whether or not the Democrats are advancing a lot of socialist ideas. You heard Bolsaonaro go off on that as well,” Acosta said on CNN immediately after the press conference.

Enjeti responded on Twitter, saying, “I tried something novel. Rather than tell the President what was happening on a particular issue, I asked him to tell me.”

The Daily Caller then tweeted out a slow-motion video of Enjeti “practicing” tee-ball, mocking Acosta with the caption, “Live look @esaagar getting some “tee ball” swings in ahead of next @POTUS press conference.”
