It’s not just the American people who have grown tired of CNN reporter Jim Acosta’ constant White House antics.
Republican strategist Arthur Schwartz reveled that he spoke with several CNN reporters and a White House correspondent from a major network — and they all had harsh words for Acosta.
“A few CNN reporters told me that they’re embarrassed by Acosta & CNN,” Schwartz tweeted.
He added, “A WH correspondent from a major network (not Fox) told me ‘This isn’t the Jim F*ing Acosta Show. We all hate him. He’s an asshole and he actually is disrespectful to the president.’”
He later defended his claims by noting the lack of pushback from White House reporters.
“Notice that not a single WH reporter came to his defense,” Schwartz tweeted. “Got a lot of text messages from a lot of them saying ‘Yep,’ ‘True,’ ‘100%,’ but no one defended him publicly. Because it’s true. They’re sick of him.”
A judge on Friday granted CNN's request for a temporary restraining order to restore Acosta' press pass. Of course, the first thing Acosta did was get in front of the cameras.
"Let's get back to work," he said.
President Donald Trump and the White House revoked Acosta's hard pass after he physically refused to give up the microphone and yield to other reporters in the briefing room.
For now, Acosta will be able to go back into the White House.
