CNN’s Jim Acosta has officially jumped the shark and outed himself as a political operative masquerading as a “reporter.”
Acosta was widely mocked after getting shut down by White House policy adviser Stephen Miller during a press briefing on immigration.
Acosta suffered a major Freudian slip when he insulted millions of minorities by claiming that requiring immigrants to speak English is racist because only whites from Australia and England know how to speak English. Oh really, Jim??
Jim Acosta was super-excited when he shot this selfie with Hillary Clinton’s comrade Huma Abedin. (Photo: Twitter)That’s when Miller fired back with an epic smackdown: “Have you honestly never met an immigrant from another country who speaks English outside of Great Britain and Australia?”
Back in his CNN safe space, Acosta accused Miller of “berating” him, when that’s exactly what he did to Miller. During the past six months, Acosta has repeatedly hijacked White House press briefings in his bid to become a YouTube celebrity.
His latest press-whoring stunt drew criticism from former WH press secretary Ari Fleischer, who said Jim crossed the line from “reporter” to political advocate. That is not his job.
“[email protected] an advocate for a political point of view, not as a neutral reporter,” Fleischer tweeted. “He’s not even playing the devil’s advocate. This is bias.”
.@Acosta an advocate for a political point of view, not as a neutral reporter. He's not even playing the devil's advocate. This is bias.

This isn’t the first time CNN was caught pushing leftist propaganda. In June, a shocking undercover video showed a CNN reporter and her crew staging an anti-ISIS protest by Muslims one day after the London Bridge terrorist attacks.
In the video, a crew member was seen coaching hijab-wearing Muslim women where to stand and how to hold their phony anti-ISIS protest signs.

Two week later, a CNN producer admitted that CNN was aggressively pushing the Trump-Russia hoax because the fake story line is a ratings cash cow for the flailing cable news network.

Twitter observers said Jim Acosta arguing policy at a press briefing (where he’s supposed to COVER the news, not make it) proves President Trump’s point that mainstream media are biased.
What an embarrassment. Trump’s whole thing is “the media is unfair” and here’s this Acosta guy arguing policy as if he’s a DNC spokesperson.

And he looks down at his notes for the Statue of Liberty poem. Dude. You gotta know it by heart at that point.

Others noted there’s nothing wrong with a merit-based immigration system. After all, when you apply to college or for a job, you’re required to meet certain criteria. They don’t just take anyone off the street.
Canada,Aus,colleges & employers all base decisions on merit@Acosta‘s view: immigration rules sacrosanct; can’t change bc tradition & stuff

Some pointed out how embarrassing it is that CNN reporters think a poem dictates U.S. policy and laws.
In the Left's America, Emma Lazarus' poem on the Statue of Liberty is to be read literally as law, but the Constitution is vague poetry.

Someone wondered if Acosta will ever recover from Stephen Miller’s sick burn.
If Left-wing political hack @Acosta wants to push for open borders and mass immigration from the 3rd World, then he should run for Congress.

Check out comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s hilarious take on unfettered immigration. It was meant to be satirical, but this is the radical stance the left has adopted.
