CNN and the Trump administration got off to a bad start last year when CNN’s White House correspondent soon learned that CNN wasn’t guaranteed to be called on at each press conference.

Not long after, some of the front-row kids found they’d been literally moved to the back row when seating arrangements were revealed for a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. CNN’s Jim Acosta called it “the equivalent of Siberia” and suggested it was retaliation for the network’s coverage.

And then there were those off-camera press conferences — so Acosta took photos of his socks and posted those instead.

It looks like 2018 will bring plenty more anecdotes to the table as Acosta again takes on Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whom he tagged in a post-briefing tweet Wednesday afternoon.

If Acosta were looking for a sympathetic audience, he probably shouldn’t have chosen Twitter.

It’s true … even Vox is taking shots at CNN’s news coverage, that’s how bad the situation has become.

What would we do without CNN?
