It’s rare that CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta makes things about himself, but he made an exception Monday to post a photo of himself in the recording studio reading his upcoming book, “The Enemy of the People — A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America.”
Great title … did he leave his Washington bubble and interview people who tell the truth, or were they all in hiding because it’s such a dangerous time for them? We mean, CNN was made to sit in the back row at one outdoor press conference, and another time Sarah Huckabee Sanders brought in a pecan pie that April Ryan wouldn’t touch, thinking it was poisoned or something. Maybe it was.

Ben Shapiro came up with the winning caption:
"It's a super dangerous time to tell the truth in America," he said as his network was taken off the air in Venezuela while he sat in an air-conditioned studio recording his self-aggrandizing audiobook https://t.co/vScjuKh9Ab

Venezuelans are literally getting run over by their government, but Jimbo is in the most dangerous time right now guys.

Which of these people is the most danger?
a) a Jewish person in a synagogue
b) a Muslim person in a mosque
c) Jim Acosta in a soundbooth

If telling the truth is dangerous Jim will live to be 176 years old.

Dear Jim @Acosta …
You are the best. You are great. I meant it. Really, really great. You write good, you look good and you sound really good. Super good. You are so amazing. I love you like the stars. You are super good.
P.S. We need more Jim Acosta.

Jonathan Burnham, President & Publisher of Harper, said they are hopeful they will sell a copy of the book to someone whose last name isn't Acosta.

Dear Diary, speaking words is hard. I sometimes wonder why I got into this wordy profession. Then I see the red light above the camera and grip that microphone and it's all worth it.

Don’t laugh, he’ll probably get one; Barack Obama has two Grammys, one for each of his two audiobooks.

I think turning it into a musical was a great idea, Jim.

Looking forward to reading your book!
Yeah, if the Trump administration allows it to be published. It’s a dangerous time to tell the truth in America.
