Jim Acosta is truly his own worst enemy.
No one else could possibly make him look any worse. At this point, we can’t tell if he realizes the only way people pay any attention to him at all is if he acts like a whiny, self-righteous, neo-maxi zoom dweebie or if he really thinks he is the victim in all of this.
Like his meltdown and temper tantrum during yesterday’s presser with Sarah Sanders in which he ‘stormed out’ because he couldn’t get Sanders to play his melodramatic game.
I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened. Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn't do it. Shameful.

Yes, Jim, your behavior is shameful.
Remember a few weeks back when a new ‘trend’ popped up on Twitter about how Jim’s tweets read like diary entries? Mollie Hemingway nailed this:
Today I demanded a woman say what I wanted her to say, and when she said something different and critical of me, I stormed out. https://t.co/B2uBTeEP3m

Your brand of "journalism" is shameful. By consistently making yourself the story you diminish those journalists who are there to actually report the news, and not create a controversy for the sake of (sagging) ratings.

Get over yourself. You tried to be the show, and no one's interested in you or what you have to say. You're not even the most hated journalist because you are a non-entity. @CNN

Seems like Jim would rather be the news than report it.
Friendly reminder that a journalist is supposed to WRITE the story, not be the story.

Hey Little Jimmy, you didn't "walk out". I was watching. The wayyy smarter than you Sarah Sanders @PressSec said "last question". It's not called walking out, it's called leaving. You are such a joke. Get over yourself. #CNNisFakeNews
