This afternoon, Donald Trump raised thousands and thousands of eyebrows with this grammatically questionable tweet about the “Fake News” media’s obsession with his Twitter account:
Does he really suck that hard at grammar? Or was he just trolling? Either way, right on cue, CNN’s Jim Acosta swooped in to prove Trump right. In his patented “PAY ATTENTION TO ME!” style, of course:
The flag is flying at half staff at WH after deaths of reporters and Trump is tweeting about "fake news." https://t.co/2OGFma8aUK

You know, we can’t for the life of us figure out why so many people find Jim Acosta so annoying.
Except wait. We totally can.

That’s some good, hard hitting, investigative journalism, Jim.

Jim gets paid for this, folks.
And you proved his point. AGAIN.

When the reporter wants to become the news ☝?

Do you ever, just for a change, think about maybe pretending, for one day, to be an actual journalist?

Sorry … that door closed a long time ago.
Trump deleted his original tweet, replacing it with this one in which “pore” was spelled correctly:
After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pore over my tweets looking for a mistake. I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!

Jim Acosta, however, remains unsatisfied.
