Jim Acosta’s pesky antics have become so bothersome White House aides had to “shoo” him from the grounds.
President Trump and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte held a joint presser on Monday.

After a few comments from Trump and Conte the press began to shout out questions but were basically told to pipe down and go away … CNN’s Acosta, in particular.
“Move, Jim! Let’s go! Keep going Jim. Let’s go. Come on Jim. Go. We’re done,” an aide yelled when Acosta began yelling questions about “collusion.”
“Press! Make your way out! Let’s go! Move, Jim!”

It doesn’t get any clearer than that.
Naturally, the anti-Trump crowd saw the scene as a sign of the upcoming apocalypse.

They don’t care as long as they have their weapons to speak for them.

On the other hand, those who are tired of the constant spin spewed forth by the biased arm of the Democrat Party known as the mainstream media got a chuckle from the exchange:
Acosta was quick to whine on Twitter about the way he and the press had been treated:
This audio is a pretty good example of how the WH aides also known as press wranglers are almost screaming as reporters try to ask questions of Trump in our “pool sprays.” https://t.co/rngjFTf93b

And while the left chimed in to offer their condolences, Acosta didn’t garner a lot of sympathy from Trump supporters.
Why are the reporters so rude???

Jim Acosta, I don’t believe you because you’ve cried wolf too many times. That was the unprofessional press yelling, not the WH staff.

Jim why were you even allowed in the oval office? Real journalists are embarrased of you. Lefturd, agenda driven narrative at every turn.

I strongly agree and I can recall when journalists had class, respect, and integrity.
