If only CNN’s Jim Acosta had a little cheese to go with his whine.
CNN’s chief White House correspondent took to social media during Monday’s daily briefing to comment on how press secretary Sarah Sanders avoids taking questions from his network.
(That CNN’s beset with a blood lust to destroy President Trump is lost on Acosta.)

Of course, Acosta has a history of being difficult when interacting with Trump administration officials, to include clashing with President Trump.
It’s hard not to associate his complaining to what you’d expect to see at grade school, as noted by author Michael Malice:

One thing is certain, social media users had little sympathy for the CNN reporter and his undignified bellyaching.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Gosh it's so bizarre how much more "journalists" at CNN whine compared to journalists from other outlets. https://t.co/mSuF2llLCB

You should consider being a professional newsman instead of a partisan hack. https://t.co/C5kaL29Vlh

you should consider yourself lucky to still have your WH press credential, because you will just make up your own 'story' any way, so no need to call on you; not only that, when you are called on, you're not civil!! #QuitYerBitchin https://t.co/UdgKJGHPey

LOL. She who scorches you with flamethrower heat in response to your disingenuous and absurdly obvious Dem agenda-driven questions can't stand the heat? You need to go home, have a good cry, and take a few days off. https://t.co/x9CrsKzBOs

The timing of Acosta’s complaining wasn’t lost on folks, coming as Sanders was more or less taking a victory lap after Democrats caved in their showdown with the president and re-opened government.
You should thank her. If she'd called on you, you just would've embarrassed yourself. https://t.co/vzTpPGtqBf
