As Twitchy readers know, many people in the media were unhappy with the White House Correspondent’s Dinner over the weekend, mainly due to the fact that Michelle Wolf’s performance was disgustingly gross and hateful. And it sounds like Jim Acosta also took issue with the dinner, but not for the reason you think:
My problem with last night’s dinner is not that we had a comedian who told some nasty jokes. It’s that we did not really address the nearly constant attacks on the press from the president. The dinner should change with the times so we send a strong message to the world. #WHCD

Ok, so Jim is upset that they didn’t focus enough on how heroic the media is for covering Trump, is that it?
Reading this right?
Because man, that’s really self-centered and quite frankly infuriating.
Journalists defending Wolf's set with "but the president is mean to us" are… not making the point you think you're making. https://t.co/jhLyY1wISO

Eventually, Jim is going to have to figure out, ‘But Trump,’ is never a good look for him or anyone in the media.
But until then, we’ll keep making fun of him.
I know Jim, this is a hard time for you. You couldn’t even take selfies last night pic.twitter.com/vBtLnZ1cnL

We don’t disagree.
Maybe if you guys tried, ya know, “real journalism” instead of advocacy most people wouldn’t think you’re a joke.

What is this thing you call ‘real journalism’?
Yeah, YOU'RE the real victim, right?

What he said.
“Strong message”! Sure, send a “strong message” that you guys that claim to be tolerant are not and that claim to be journalists are not and that claim to be comedians are not. You are slimy, intolerant, partisan offensive asshats. That’s the “strong message” you sent! Well done!

Jim, you are confusing being under attack with being under scrutiny … ir in other words, being called out for your utter irresponsibility and lack of balance.

But how dare people question the media?!
Oh ouch, we just rolled our eyes so far back in our heads we may have hurt ourselves.
Ahahahahahaha cry more you little man baby
