As Twitchy reported earlier, Jim Acosta sent a fairly vulgar and hateful DM to a former Trump staffer. Full disclosure, this editor did not make that connection until she read this story from Benny Johnson.

From The Daily Wire:

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta late Thursday night sent a vulgar direct message on Twitter to a former staffer in President Donald Trump’s administration.

“F*ck you,” Acosta wrote to Justin Caporale, the former director of operations for first lady Melania Trump.

Caporale shared the message on Twitter and later allowed The Daily Caller News Foundation to log into his account and view the message. The vulgar message appeared to be the first time either Acosta or Caporale had messaged each other on Twitter.

Sadly, Acosta didn’t get cranky with Twitchy (shucks!), but he did get pissy with Benny Johnson.

Yeah, bro.

The firefighter is sorry if he offended Benny. *eye roll*



Dear Diary,

I got so cranky on Twitter tonight I made a total tool out of myself. It’s all Trump’s fault!



He knows.

He just doesn’t care.


But the poor media and stuff!


THIS is the BEST they have? Laura Ingraham knocked the Spartacus out of Cory Booker and it just took 1 tweet

‘You’re a DISGRACE!’ James O’Keefe rips MSNBC ‘contributor’ a new one for dissing Project Veritas and just DAMN

REEEEE! If you watch closely you’ll see the EXACT moment the Resistance breaks on this Trump tweet (hint, m-word!)
