Believing that they have indeed defeated President Donald Trump — you don’t really think Trump was running against Joe Biden, do you? — the corrupt media is moving into revisionist mode to smooth over its four-year campaign of persecution against Trump.
Naturally, primadonna reporter Jim Acosta, with “Fake News CNN,” as the network’s often called, is involved, as seen in his response to a New York Times op-ed penned by Trump-hating, open border advocate/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos.
According to Ramos and the Times, the media should have been even tougher on the president, after all, they long ago deemed Trump to be a racist. Never mind that their fabricated reasoning was politically motivated.
Ramos boasts about the most relevant moment in his career, when he disrespected the president and was “kicked out of a Donald Trump news conference.” Of course, he does not mention standing up to ask a question without being called on and refusing to sit down when Trump called him out for it — then again, that would betray the fact that his stunt was nothing short of political grandstanding.
"We journalists should have been tougher on Mr. Trump, questioning his every lie and insult," writes @jorgeramosnews. "We should not have let him get away with his racism and xenophobia." https://t.co/51ft4lzyXl

Not to be outdone, Acosta responded to the op-ed to regale about having his White House press credentials seized.
He recounts how he “called out Trump’s xenophobia when he referred to a migrant caravan as an invasion” — it was, in every sense an invasion, aided and abetted by the left every step of the way to the U.S. border.
“Some of us were calling out his lies, his racism and dealt with serious death threats along the way. Inaccurate to say otherwise,” he added.
With all due respect, the WH seized my press credentials after I called out Trump’s xenophobia when he referred to a migrant caravan as an invasion. Some of us were calling out his lies, his racism and dealt with serious death threats along the way. Inaccurate to say otherwise. https://t.co/ljTSQISuHr

The gallant behavior in the face of such evil is something to behold… except that’s not exactly why Acosta briefly lost his press credentials.
Acosta fell into disfavor because he refused to surrender a microphone to a young White House intern, physically impeding her attempt to take control of the mic with a sharp downward motion of his arm.
And while his media cohorts are willing to look the other way, social media was not about to let the “disrespectful jacka**” get away with the distortion.
When a journalist lies about his own story, which we all witnessed, how in the hell do they expect us to believe anything they say about others?!
Your obnoxious behavior at a WH event led to your creds being pulled. It was caught on film, Jimmy. Your lying over it is disgraceful. https://t.co/s6ovokp0cr

Your credentials were pulled because you were acting like the disrespectful jackass that you are. Spin it how you want now Jimmy. But the truth is you had a tantrum and got put in time out.

I’m still haunted by being punished in regard to my poor behavior in the assault on a WH staffer. I need to bring it up to ensure everyone knows that I felt persecuted. I wasn’t, but I felt I was. Don’t they know societal rules don’t apply to people like me? pic.twitter.com/ni0CnTPOiu

You were abusive towards a female intern.

Remember when you manned that Anti-Aircraft gun during Pearl Harbor?
Such a hero!
