What a ridiculous, ludicrous, fat little man.

Acosta said this in the course of admitting that he wouldn’t be grandstanding or trying to take down Biden.

CNN’s Jim Acosta was accused of being “literally delusional” on Tuesday after admitting he doesn’t plan to cover Joe Biden’s presidency as actively as he did the Trump administration, claiming covering Trump was “an experience that might merit hazard pay.”

A piece published by The Atlantic on Tuesday, “The Resistance’s Breakup With the Media Is at Hand,” by McKay Coppins notes, “The White House spent four years vilifying journalists” and asked, “What comes next?” Coppins noted “the Trump era has been especially rewarding to a certain class of Washington reporter,” which includes CNN’s Acosta.

“As the White House beat became the biggest story in the world, once-obscure correspondents were recast in the popular imagination as resistance heroes fighting for truth, justice, and the American way. They were showered with book deals, speaking gigs, and hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers,” he wrote, pondering what reporters who “got famous fighting with Trump” plan to do next.

…”You can’t just go and trash the press and totally lie to the American people and tell them real news is fake news… I don’t think the press should be trying to whip up the Biden presidency and turn it into must-see TV in a contrived way,” Acosta told Coppins.

Coppins admitted it sounded like a “double standard,” but Acosta maintained that Trump’s treatment of the press was a “nonstop national emergency” that warranted harsh coverage.

CNN’s “fact-checker” admits he will be taking the next four years off:

Acosta’s colleague, CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale, also admitted he won’t cover Biden the way he handled Trump.

“It will not be a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week job to fact-check Biden,” Dale told Coppins, who noted that the CNN fact-checker feels Biden doesn’t lie as often as Trump so his role will largely shift to “debunking online disinformation and digging into claims made by congressional leaders.”

Many took to Twitter to mock the CNN staffers for essentially admitting they won’t cover Biden as thoroughly as they did Trump.

Meanwhile, bitchmade fake toughguy Jake Tapper is complaining that Trump retweeted a tweet that called him “Fake Tapper.”

This is so Fake Tapper — he’s putting on his hero act, criticizing Trump for engaging in a squabble while people are dying.
