CNN’s Jim Acosta is reporting that President Trump was caught on a hot mic before tonight’s news conference at his Bedminster club saying . . . the exact same things in private as he does in public?
Before news conf Trump was caught on a hot mic telling people at club…”You’ll get to meet the fake news tonight. You’ll get to see what I have to go through. Who’s there? Oh all my killers are there, wow. So you’ll get to see some of the people that we deal with every day”

And this is quite the self-own:

Really, what’s the story here?
So he got "caught on a hot mic" saying the exact same things he says directly to the press corps on camera on any day that ends in "y"? https://t.co/MXLDM26NZU

So, the same thing he says to your face.

Journos like to pretend they’re not part of this same game, but they are:
Trump bashing the press, yes. But also hyping/promoting the drama, the confrontation, the show… always. https://t.co/GHTwSwuPvu

You know, in Trump-speak “killer” is actually a good thing:
The people charged with holding powerful politicians accountable to the American people are described as "killers"

And they should know that after 3 years:
I heard @jeffmason1 can kill a man with little more than a his bare hands and folded piece of paper from a reporter’s notebook.

Curiously, what else did the president say?
What else did he say, Jim? https://t.co/7aEsPiYbQn
