Dear Diary,

Today I went on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He’s a good friend, Diary. He laughed at my jokes and made me feel important.

Love,

Jim

Holy cow …

From The Daily Beast:

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta wore American flag socks on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Wednesday night. He joked that they are from the “Enemy of the People collection.”

“You’ve gotten singled out by the president quite specifically in his disdain for you and for CNN,” Colbert told Acosta, “and you’ve gotten some notoriety for pushing back in the way that you have. Are you an outlier or are you merely saying the things that everyone in the press corps is saying but just not in front of a camera?”

Laughing, Acosta said, “You know, we’re all fed up with the treatment that we’re receiving and I’m not the only one to speak out about this.” But as Colbert pointed out, he seems to be uniquely despised by the president, who on more than one occasion has denounced him to his face as “fake news.”

Such a HERO.

Yeah, we did the same thing.

He is definitely the punchline.

But you know, he doesn’t want to be the story.

In case you missed the interview itself:

Beware, it may induce a good deal of eye-rolling.
