In the moments following President Trump’s WWE-style tweet about CNN, Jim Acosta, the CNN reporter who has been one of the network’s main antagonists toward the Trump administration, rhetorically asked if pro wrestling was fake.

Not the best idea. Immediately, the word fake was used by Donald Trump Jr. and others to hammer his network.

And the floodgates opened.

Anyway, you get the point. If Acosta was trying to get ’em with a zinger for the ages, he should have put some more thought into it.
