Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts wrote his first-ever Jim Acosta-themed #DearDiary entry this Thursday, and it was a sight to behold.

Roberts experienced his first Acosta-like meltdown after critics on social media blasted him for acting “obnoxious” during a White House briefing.

During a briefing that afternoon, Roberts asked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany whether she can confirm that President Donald Trump denounces white supremacy.

The press secretary responded by listing multiple examples of the president having denounced white supremacy — some of them from this very week. But this wasn’t enough for Roberts.

“But just to clear it up this morning, can you, naming it, make a declarative statement that the president denounces it,” he demanded.

In response, McEnany said, “I just did.”

This prompted Roberts to accuse her of having just “just read a bunch of quotes from the past.”

It’s unclear what else he’d expected. It’s not her job to put words in the president’s mouth but rather to convey the president’s words to the public. And conveying the president’s words means quoting him.

“The president was asked this. You’re contriving a story line and narrative,” the press secretary said, after which she tried to move on to a more cooperative reporter.

But alas, Roberts — much like Acosta — chose to hog the mic.

“Kayleigh, can you right now denounce white supremacy and the group that espouses it,” he said, repeating his talking point for the third time in a row, and provoking the press secretary into rehashing her list of examples for the umpteenth time.

Watch the back-and-forth exchange below:

Roberts’ haranguing of the press secretary apparently ticked off a lot of people, because the Fox personality quickly became the target of some criticism on Twitter.

There’s a LOT more where that came from …

Even McEnany took a shot at Roberts by pointing out that the president had already denounced white supremacy while speaking to his wife, Kyra Phillips, a day earlier.

Check out McEnany’s tweet below:

Sadly, all this criticism was too much for Roberts, aka Jim Acosta 2.0.

In a stunning rant delivered on live television, the Fox News chief White House corespondent excoriated his Twitter critics for daring to criticize him.

In the words of Greta Thunberg, “How dare you!?”

“For all of you on Twitter who are hammering me for asking the question, I don’t care because it’s a question that needs to be asked, and clearly the presidents’ Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer too. So stop deflecting, stop blaming the media! I’m tired of it,” he angrily belly-ached.

This was recorded sometime after the briefing.

Watch (*Cringe warning):

But if he thought the previous criticism was bad, he ain’t seen nothing yet.

In response to his outburst, Roberts has since become the target of scathing-hot, caustic condemnation and vitriol from the masses.

Here’s just a small sample (*Language warning):
