President Donald Trump taunted Jim Acosta on Saturday after the CNN journalist returned to the beat after promoting his book.
Acosta asked if Trump purposely ignored a journalist’s question about the death of Jamal Khashoggi during a meeting with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman because he was afraid of offending him.
“No, not at all,” Trump replied. “I don’t really care about offending people, I sort of thought you’d know that.”
“By the way, congratulations, I understand your book, is it doing well?” Trump added.
Trump to CNN: “Do I look like I give a fuck?”
The media is trying hard to stir up trouble. The G20 is a diplomatic event. Vlad Putin was also in attendance. When Trump and Putin met and did a brief photo-op presser together, some reporter asked Trump if he told Putin not to meddle in our elections. Trump made a joke of it, which caused panties to bunch up on the Left.
What was Trump supposed to do, wag his finger at Putin and give him a condescending lecture? Smack him with a rolled-up copy of the Mueller report? “Bad Putin. Bad!”
Picking fights is generally considered bad diplomacy.
