CNN’s Jim Acosta never misses an opportunity to try and reel in some sweet anti-Trump Resistance retweets, and today he used partial comments from Trump three years ago to do so:
Three years ago today… Trump says there were “very fine people on both sides” in Charlottesville. https://t.co/IMhg46QgwC
— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 15, 2020
Democrats and the media (pardon the redundancy) are never eager to share the full quote:
"I'm not talking about neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally…"

No media report this, because it destroys their narrative. https://t.co/AnzoROcswk

Why don’t you report on his FULL statement, Jim? pic.twitter.com/xxiNLv7GPD

For some reason Acosta doesn’t feel the need to include the full quote, but that’s hardly surprising.
If you believe Trump is a huge Racist, why do you need to make things up to prove your point?
That’s what I don’t get. https://t.co/oGgcxzLZqX

He was talking about people on both sides of the debate about statues, not neo-nazis — and to leave that out is exceptionally dishonest. https://t.co/C30C5xf9Ik

Acosta doesn’t seem to mind “exceptionally dishonest” if it gets him applause from the Left.
Evil. (Not Trump, Jim. YOU)https://t.co/pzD4aUnepY

There are very fine people in the press, you're not one of them. See how that works?

And Jim wonders why the media is treated with such an utter lack of respect

He got a whole book out of it, self-awareness-be-damned!
