It was just another normal day at work for CNN’s Jim Acosta.

After following President Trump to Vietnam to report on his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Jim Acosta appeared to gloat significantly over the fact that no deal emerged from the meeting.

Here’s what Acosta said during an interview:

“So it’s strike one in Singapore, he didn’t get a deal from Kim Jong-un,” Acosta said. “Now, it’s strike two in Hanoi. Once again, no deal to denuclearize North Korea, something that he has staked a lot of his legacy, a lot of his presidency on.”

“Humbled in Washington, humbled here in Hanoi, heading back to Washington empty-handed,” Acosta added. “The president staked a lot of his presidency on something that is just much more difficult than reality TV. This is not something that can be wrapped up in a season of ‘The Apprentice.’”


That was Step One.

But then came Step Two: LIE about what happened next to the American people and hope no one notices.

Trump didn’t call on Acosta at a press conference, and so the CNN reporter started lying through his teeth.

First, he equated Fox News and, in particular, Sean Hannity with Communist propaganda.

Then, he lied about who the President called on at the press conference. And immediately got roasted for it.

From The Daily Wire:

Acosta later appeared to be somewhat agitated after he and CNN were not called on during a post-summit news conference.

Acosta falsely claimed that Trump steered away from calling on White House reporters for questions, saying: “He didn’t even know who he was calling on. He was calling on reporters from Russian state media, Chinese state media, Sean Hannity from FOX.”

According to NewsBusters’ Curtis Houck, the president called on reporters from ABC, Bloomberg, CBS, Fox News, NPR, The Washington Post, and The New York Times — with Times’ reporter David Sanger being the only non-White House reporter out of the bunch.

WATCH as Acosta lies about who President Trump called on during the press conference:

Acosta then took to Twitter to keep the lie going:

“Trump largely steered clear of WH press corps.. which helped him avoid the Cohen questions,” Acosta tweeted, adding: “Russian state media got a question. China state media got a question. Hannity got a question.”

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Just another typical day at work for Jim Acosta. Lying to the American people like always.
