Our apologies for already covering CNN’s Jim Acosta once today, as he and other journalists had a “cry-in” at the Citizen conference, where Acosta revealed that the most depressing thing about his job is covering President Trump’s rallies — the ones at which a “CNN sucks!” chant usually breaks out.
There’s no doubt in our mind he, like everyone else, was prepping to cover President Clinton’s rallies, or even better, find work in her White House. But no.
Acosta’s been letting the mask slip more and more, and in this tweet from Saturday, he gives the president some advice about keeping his eye on the ball: Russia.
Don’t be fooled by the continued demonization of immigrants. Voter fraud in this country is actually very rare. What we should be on the lookout for is Russian meddling. https://t.co/7LO0VNHGtE

What we need to be on the lookout for is White House correspondents suggesting there’s a “continued demonization of immigrants” coming from this White House. Remember all the reporting CNN did on kids in cages during the scandal-free Obama administration? We don’t either.
Anyway, don’t be fooled by reporters who use the word “immigrants” in place of “illegal immigrants.”
Who is demonizing immigrants?? You are a total lunatic spreading a false narrative. Americans are demonizing ILLEGALS, legal immigrants are fine. More #FakeNewsCNN

No one is demonizing immigrants. Legal immigration into the US is an essential part of our growth. Illegally entering a country is tolerated by no nation. Try and illegally stay in Mexico. Asshat.

The only people demonizing immigrants is the Media when they try to mix illegal immigrants in with the legal immigrants who went through the trouble of doing it right. And yet you can't seem to figure out why you are considered an enemy of the people. SMDH! https://t.co/JKCYdud4ra

Calling illegal invaders “immigrants” is a demonization of immigrants.

Acosta, you left out the word "illegal" again… pic.twitter.com/tygibWEMv0

I literally cried when reading your beautiful words Jim. We must stop these Nazis from intimidating our voters! Even now, the Orange Man is trying to intimidate thousands of our blue wave at the Guatemala/Mexico border! Let our voters in! Let the people vote! #OrangeManBad pic.twitter.com/SOhrpe61SS

The media is nothing less than an arm of the Democrat Party and they should be treated as such. https://t.co/SSDyHApK7o

After the Brett Kavanaugh debacle, it’s actually refreshing to see Russia back on the radar of U.S. journalists.
Jim, the jig is up. We know that Democrats concocted the 'Russian meddling' narrative in order to ensure that the content of the leaks would never need to be scrutinized by a domesticated press, & that you have assisted their subversion to avoid being implicated with your peers. https://t.co/Zp6k4qq9Sx

Illegal immigrants stole more votes than the Russians did, Jim. https://t.co/UuLz3yKkSl

Don't be fooled by the continued demonization of conservatives. Voter fraud in this country is actually very common. What we should be on the lookout for is the undead (Democrats) voting. https://t.co/hu19CFLelB

Chicago thrives on voter fraud, been doing it since the 60's. https://t.co/7u6o6qqj1b

Something being “rare” doesn’t mean you can dismiss something so easily. In court, you have to prove it wasn’t fraud instead of saying “it’s rare” as a reason to not into it as possible voter fraud.

Voter fraud may be rare but, in a democracy, it is like a murder: a stab in the heart of society. https://t.co/9JU51NBdsG

If it’s so rare, why fight so hard to prevent voter id?
— Joe Palladino (@palladinojoe128) October 21, 2018
Because voter ID is racist, obviously. More important to look out for Russian meddling that require voters to have a photo ID.
I thought this guy was supposed to be an unbiased reporter?😏 https://t.co/FwQUJf5mG8
