Jim Sciutto shared some ‘words of wisdom’ with other reporters who might actually get a chance to interview the president and we can’t decide if this is hilarious or absolutely obnoxious. A guy who works for CNN telling others to ‘challenge Trump when he denies facts’ might be one of the most hypocritical things this editor has read in a good long while.
If you’re interviewing the president, challenge him when he denies facts.

Really, Jim? REALLY? HA HA HA HA HA HA
Remember when CNN was always challenging Obama? Oh, wait.
You're a little late to this party, Jim. https://t.co/ysRyyw370g

Did you suddenly learn this in J-school?
Seems to me your network didn't know that was it's job during the previous administration.

Lib media continues to be so woke after that 8 year Obama nap. Fascinating.

That would have been nice during the last Administration. You know, the one with Joe’s buddy, the Liar-In-Chief…

Wait until Rip Van Winkle here finds out what his network did between 2009-2017.

Make sure you apply this same energy when you’re interviewing liberal politicians as well. The rules don’t seem to work the same way with them.

Strange, isn’t it?
But Democrat presidential candidates and former FBI Directors get a free pass on CNN town halls, right?

Well, duh. Especially that Michael Avenatti guy.
Well yeah that should be true of any President….I’m sure you said the same about Obama, right? Brb gonna search for all those times you did.

We can’t help but notice she never returned with any examples of Jim challenging Obama.
Would have been nice to hear that during Obama's presidency. Instead, we got "Hoe proud do you think your grandmother would be right now?"

Or asking him about his favorite color? His NCAA brackets?
As opposed to asking Obama what enchanted him about being President?
Or his golf game.

Where was this backbone from 2008-2016? #AskingForAmbChrisStevens

Like the rest of Jim, his backbone was napping during that time.
