Stop the presses! At last! It’s finally happened! Jim Acosta has busted Donald Trump once and for all, and things will never be the same.
Check out this sweet gotcha:

Awww, Jim. We hate to see you embarrass yourself, but … actually, no we don’t. It never gets old. Which is why we’re compelled to point this out:
Prior to departing Wisconsin, I was briefed on the shooting at Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Thank you to all of the First Responders who are currently on the scene.

Trump tweeted that over half an hour before Acosta’s tweet designed to bust him. Now, we can certainly debate Trump’s sincerity, given some of his rhetoric surrounding the media. And one can argue that a tweet from Trump isn’t as meaningful as, say, an official White House statement or a recorded message. But it definitely constitutes a comment.
If you were a journalist, you'd know that he did.

FFS, Jim Acosta. You can’t take three steps without tripping all over yourself.
