Is it just us, or does it seem like Jim Acosta is starting to act a little defeated when it comes to briefings with Sarah Sanders?
Now he’s rallying the troops aka the other journos who bravely run into burning buildings to get their story as a means to simply ‘survive’ a Sanders presser, and we can’t stop laughing at him for it.
Then again, we laugh at him anyway but this is pretty sad.
One way to address the briefing is for reporters to stick together when the press sec cuts somebody off. Ideally we could and should insist on answers if somebody is cut off. We don't do that as much as we should. Problem is there is so little time and so many pressing q's.

Problem is there is so little time to make the briefings about himself.

They just don’t know how to deal with someone who won’t let them have their way.
It’s glorious, doncha think?
The problem is that you are the weakest link and would then bring the rest down to your level.

Or, they could take your approach a scream questions at inappropriate times like a lunatic

Jim, must of America has had its fill of your whiny petulance. Please, for everyone’s sanity, stick a sock in it. Ty

Hey, he said, ‘thank you.’
There are also reporters who kinda hog the time and insist on follow up questions. Not mentioning names.

When you just can't get the job done by yourself……

You also could try being polite and respectful. Just a thought.

Alternatively, you could act like an adult and do your job.

Actually if you all acted like adults, you might get farther, but you act like petulant children

Sounds like lots and lots of good advice, Jim.
What an asshat! I mean, really, you've become a meme. Stay strong @PressSec ! No more bulldozing by the pampered press. If you say one question, they get one question. If they don't like your answer, too bad, so sad, just move it on along!

What’s funny about her tweet is that Jim really has become a meme.
