Far-left CNN host Jim Acosta is being called out as a “deranged,” “obsessed,” “classless,” “immoral,” “science denying,” “anti-diversity” and “psycho” loser over the stunningly crude stunt he played this weekend for Christmas.
The stunt involved him posting a picture of him and his Atlanta-based CNN staff. Every staff member was white, and nobody wore a mask.
In addition, he was holding up a folder whose cover contained a picture of Fox News’ Christmas tree and the four Fox News hosts whom he detests the most.
What’s unclear is whether the photo depicts the original Christmas tree that was burnt to a crisp by a mentally deranged arsonist or its replacement.

Teamwork makes the dream work. Got to finally hang out IN-person with my Atlanta-based CNN team that gets the show on the air every weekend. I couldn’t do it without them! Thanks guys!! pic.twitter.com/7E699fiszv

Acosta, who’s been accused of being obsessed with Fox News, explained the purpose of the folder during a segment of his Saturday show earlier that day. He said that he made the folder and filled it with articles disputing claims of 2020 election fraud so that he can hand it to anyone who has concerns about the election.
“Consider putting together a little folder of articles. Here’s mine. I’ve got an Associated Press story in here reporting that they found fewer than 475 cases of voter fraud in the battleground states that helped decide the 2020 election. Plenty of other great CNN articles in here as well. If you have them, you can — if you have kids, you can have them decorate the folder,” he said.
“On the cover of mine, I have the FOX News Christmas tree, there it is along with some photos of Sean, Laura and Brian. And don’t forget tiny Tucker. He’s right there. And God bless us, everyone, including Vladimir Putin.”
It’s not clear what the “tiny Tucker” was a reference to.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson is reportedly 6’1, while Acosta is 5’9, so it can’t be height. And Carlson’s ratings are among the top in both cable news and all cable channels, whereas Acosta’s shows is nowhere to be found, so it can’t be ratings.
Regardless, the whole stunt provoked widespread repulsion, particularly the photo of Fox News’ Christmas Tree.
How utterly insecure does a person have to be — during a team shot, mind you — to hold up a photo of a Christmas tree that was burned down by an arsonist with photos of those on a rival network that eviscerates his? Oh right… https://t.co/NnrDYxNM6Z

You’re holding a picture of the Fox Christmas tree with pictures of Fox TV personalities.
I knew you were a nut job, but this is really weird and shows you’re not a serious journalist – you’re obsessed

Why are they holding a picture of the Fox News Christmas Tree? Are they just that pathetically obsessed with Fox. Instead of obsessing on Fox, why don’t you guys learn from Fox and maybe your ratings will get better, too!

Do you seriously have a pic of the burned down @FoxNews Christmas tree? Are you glorifying arson and criminals because it occurred to your superior competitor? Wow @CNN has no limit to their lack of morals.

Who would give a break to a sicko who proudly stands with a photo of a Christmas tree from a rival network that was burned down by an arsonist? Beyond low class and unprofessional. But that’s what this douche is.

So Fox kicks your ass daily and you think it’s cute to use a picture of them with the Christmas tree that burned – what complete losers

Critics also took aim at Acosta over two other observations.
One, nobody in the photo was masked, despite Acosta’s history of demonizing mask mandate opponents.
Second, nobody in the photo was a minority, despite CNN’s obsession with racial politics.
Hmm… no masking, no social distancing, and no vax cards. Your network really doesn’t believe the crap it is selling.

Hey Jim, where is you and your teams mask? Funny how y’all can’t even follow the Covid protocols you’re stupid network pushes so hard.

Not a single white elitist liberal here is wearing a mask and you are completely blind to the irony.

Yikes – does CNN refuse to hire black staffers?

You’re holding a picture of the Fox Christmas tree that was burned down by an arsonist. So, checks notes, pro arson and scared of Fox News. All of you are white. So, checks notes, all racists and anti diversity. No masks. So, checks notes, all murderers and science deniers.

It’s probably a bit much to call everybody at CNN “murderers and science deniers.”
However, it’s likely not too much to call them fake news …
