Something tells us CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t mind the attention Twitchy or anyone else is giving him lately; still pinned at the top of his Twitter feed like a grade school participation ribbon is an excerpt from “The New Colossus,” a reminder of the time he and White House adviser Stephen Miller tangled over the administration’s immigration policy and whether it violated not U.S. law but the spirit of a poem engraved on a plaque inside the Statue of Liberty.

That was one of the few times during the Trump administration that Acosta and CNN scored some prime camera time, and CNN’s been pretty cranky about the way the new White House occupants are doing things. When the White House turned off the cameras, Acosta took pictures of his socks and posted those instead. And on Thursday, as he awaited the first White House briefing in three weeks, he shared his front-row view of the carpeting, which hasn’t been part of the White House renovation project.

What’s really bothering Acosta and CNN is the games β€” including one where the rules include not calling on CNN.

Don’t hit the poor guy with two shocks in a one day.

Update:

Like we said, Acosta’s just not feeling the new management.

Fox News? The network he was always warning us about? The one “in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country” telling viewers “24/7” that he was a Muslim?
