CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta openly mocked the questions asked by The Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti to President Donald Trump during a joint press conference with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro.
Democrats who are running to replace the president have embraced socialist ideas,” followed by asking, “If a candidate who embraced socialism were to replace the president, how would it affect your relations with the United States?”
This is the point Acosta made to CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, noting that the Trump campaign plans to “to hit the Democrats over the head with this idea that they’re socialist from now until the 2020 election.”
Acosta continued “you heard the president start his remarks at this joint news conference in that fashion and then he was asked that question by a reporter with the Daily Caller right at the very end.”
He then mocked the question noting that it “was asked in a way that really teed it up like a game of tee ball here in the Rose Garden. The president was just sort of served up a softball there when he was asked whether or not the Democrats are advancing a lot of socialist ideas.”
Acosta incorrectly noted that the question was asked of Trump, which was quickly pointed out on Twitter by Enjeti’s colleague Amber
