As Twitchy readers know, Trump was asked about Jim Acosta this morning … and his answers didn’t exactly make anyone on the Left or in the media very happy. This little soundbite seems to have especially caused some ‘triggering’:
"I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice.” Trump says about @Acosta

He’s not wrong.
Ok, we take it back, some media types ‘liked’ Trump’s quip about Acosta:
Fact check: true https://t.co/1gO3nflRZi

Hey, both Trump and Shapiro are right.
And as you already guessed, the Left didn’t find Shapiro’s fact-check as funny as we did:
The real problem here other countrie's people understand, but Americans do not,,, is that if our president doesn't have complete control during his time as president there's no point in having a King!

Maybe she should slow down and try this again in English.
Acosta is too strong for Trump

Acosta could say the same thing about Trump and both would be true

You know when they go down the, ‘I know you are but what am I,’ path it’s over.
Trump is the master of projection

Wait, u fact checked Acosta's Intelligence and the decibel of his voice? Hmm…got a lot of time on ya hands Ben. Where would one even get this info? lol

It’s like these folks have never seen Acosta in action.
He's allowed to that's America.

You know that face you make when you can’t figure out why your music app isn’t working and you’re trying to write a bunch of stories for Twitchy and need your music and it won’t work? Oh, is that just this editor?
Well, it’s not a good face and we totally just made it after reading this tweet.
It takes one to know one.

Yeah, coz if he was he’d have reminded Trump that he would have been a mere employee for the people in a real parliamentary democracy and not an untouchable ass-upp face-down President!

We’re not sure this tweet came across like this guy thought it would.
But then again, tweets from haters on Ben’s threads never do.
