If you’re drinking anything it’s probably a good idea to put the glass down before proceeding.
OK, here we go. Jim Acosta — yes, the Jim Acosta from CNN — has a request as the Biden administration-created disaster in Afghanistan continues to unfold:
My thoughts on Afghanistan this week… now is not the time to score political points. Just imagine just this once if we simply offered our thoughts and prayers. Give it some thought. Pray on it. https://t.co/NfQQBPDElN

The guy who tries to score political points for 4+ years complains about scoring political points.

Acosta, along with others at CNN, literally spent four years trying to score political points over anything that happened while Trump was president, even if they had to make up stuff.
But, it was perfectly ok to score political points during a pandemic, smh

You thought the world was on fire when Trump was in office. Now you see what the world on fire looks like, and all of you can say is "Give it some thought. Pray on it." You were "burn the house down" under Trump. Now you call for reflection? LOL

Hypocrisy Meter on a scale of 0 to 10 is about a 17 on this one. Unreal.

How long after this tweet will it be until you're trashing someone else for offering thoughts and prayers?

Based on Acosta’s track record, not long:

Noah, he's clearly just quoting Joe Biden. This really isn't fair to Jim oh… pic.twitter.com/Y4QXvytF2j

Jim Acosta saying “now is not the time to score political points” might be the most shameless thing he’s ever said, and that’s saying something.
But last year Jim and Media said Thoughts and Prayers were not enough anymore?! https://t.co/3WRZSgG2YE

According to you Acosta thoughts and prayers were "empty words" rather than meaningful actions, what made you change your mind I wonder🙄. https://t.co/KIW9Bh7GmQ

Could it be that Acosta’s not a completely unbiased “journalist”? Say it ain’t so!
