    Maybe cnn should stop with the agenda to take down republicans. Looking at what they run to cover and what they dont shows they are fake news. It shows they have a narrative. And they look for stories that fit that marxist, racist, sexist, narrative.

    I'm a Liberal on most issues. But, I absolutely DESPISE Acosta and the sensationalized tabloid bullshit he brings to mainstream media.
    Acosta is the perfect illustration of why so many Americans consider the mainstream media the "enemy of the people" - because he LIES LIES LIES to serve his own narrow political agenda.
    Frankly, I'm at a loss to understand how he is still allowed into the White House.

    You are the enemy of the people because you lie to the people. Fact check. The us steel deal. True, Trump misspoke, or lied. I know because i went to Fox and they reported it to be false, www.foxbusiness.com/markets/ap-fact-check-trump-says-us-steel-opening-mills-not-so. Separation of children from their parents, Started with Obama. Just because you can come up with one story on Trump doesn't compare to all the lies you tell every day

    When they report bs like stormy Daniel's and Russia interference but don't cover trumps obvious corruption and registering 8 new businesses during the campaign or being beholden to Saudi. When they don't bash him for legitimate reasons, Costa has no leg to stand on. You're not asking hard questions, you're promoting a message of anything but Trump which is not helpful if he stumbles on the right issue like North Korea.

    Yes Trump is the same guy who believes media is the enemy while simultaneously using them to further his Trump persona and reality TV horse shit. He shits on them but then uses them constantly on Twitter, interviews, lets reporters follow him around in the Whitehouse, which is why that book Fire and Fury was written. Trump was so delusional that he thought that book was going to praise him and had no idea it was going to explain the reality in the administration. Thats because hes such a sociopath that hes convinced himself of the reality he creates in his head, that he is unable to see any other point of view thats looks on in horror. He cant fathom that people collectively laugh, scream, cry, and get depressed when he continually makes an ass of himself and this country. On top of that he cant believe people believe in the russia connection, which is so obvious, because he thinks hes doing such an awesome job that people should just listen to whatever he says. Hes also a dullard who is semi illiterate and intellectually hes a child who has to get what he wants, or he throws a fit and gets angry and just spews out non sense(like twitter), and there is no cognitive ability for him to negotiate or to understand or accept compromise or admission of guilt, which is the most important thing for people to realize. When his own auto biographer says hes like a 9 year old with adhd, hes not kidding. He is actually childlike who just bullies people aka tries to alpha everyone. He just speaks over you and creates a scene or he just walks away or lies. Has ANYONE ever seen evidence of him having a sincere conversation with someone on a philosophical manner in which he trades ideas with someone. Or has a sincere back and forth with reporters or interviewers. Trick question, lol because hes never wrong, so theres no reason to have a discourse with anyone. Even on opinion topics, he just tosses back grandiose monosyllables, and never gets beyond the surface of everything. He literally said he cant believe how hard being President was, and that he didnt know how complex issues would be. He didnt realize that you cant use your reality tv persona to deal with the reality of other countries and leaders and now that hes being fact checked and called out on his horseshit, this must be a truly traumatic experience for a man who just told lies and got away with it. Staff in the whitehouse say they legitimately have to treat him like a child when dealing with serious issues, because his memory is also shot on top of it. Theres a reason why he doesnt use teleprompters for his speeches and shit. He is semi illiterate. Watch one if his depositions where they toss a lease agreement his way. He just opens a page and just stares at the sheet, franticly thinking what to do, and then says he doesnt have his glasses, then tries again and just stares at the paper, not even trying to scan his eyes, staring blankly into the paper, never trying to sound anything out or even attempt. His life is starting to come to the forefront, and boy its not pretty.

    I think the enemy of the people refers not to reporters in general; but to those who would like the American public to share the same OPINIONS as them. I thought the newspapers and tv were to report the facts and then you decide for yourself what to believe. When a reporter is reporting only what they want you to know so you will share the same opinion as them something is wrong in the reporting. Is there not ONE good thing to say--and if you say no--do you only listen to one source for your info?? Who is not a sheep??

    Jim Acosta is full of shit, as is all of the main stream media news. The press is the enemy of the people!! The main stream media are nothing but presstitutes, a combination of prostitute and the press, because they are nothing more than whores that are paid to read what they are told. If they go off script they get canned. They do no investigation at all. They are nothing more that whores for their corporate advertisers and the establishment, and everyone knows it. They show disdain for any group or person that dissents from the establishment line. They have a fiduciary responsibility to their advertisers. If a corporation advertises on their network they will never be investigated. Main stream media is simply an instrument empire. We don’t have a free press, or for that matter “a government of the people.” The government and the press are run by the deep state.

    Fair, balanced, trustworthy, unbiased, non-partisan, checks their facts, covers the news and not their opinions, let's their viewers make their own decisions, that is what America demands of our press. CNN and most of the main stream networks are the opposite. They are the enemy of free speech, free thought and democracy. They are the definition of fake propagandist news. #Walk away

    Acosta's line about everyone having jobs to do is exactly why his question to Sanders at the beginning of the video makes no sense. Sanders is there to relay the President's opinions/remarks, not give her own. Yes, Trump makes that job very difficult, but that is her job none the less. Acosta has always been a horrible journalist. CNN has hundreds of journalists that should be in his place. Heck, an intern could probably do a better job than he does.

    There's a difference between your quasi-news and journalism. We the People have taken back the Free Press on social media. The reason you favor the left is because you are a performance artist and entertainer. There is a HUGE difference in your coverage of "back checking " this President compared to the President of the last two terms. We the People aren't stupid, we recognize your "political news coverage" is nothing but a pep rally for the left. We don't appreciate the media's rude treatment of our Press Secretary, either. Network News is flexing its puny liberal muscles to influence people politically. You're fired!

We the people have a choice and free will to decide whether we follow or not. Do We follow down the road of violence and hatred... Do We follow down the road of ignorance ... Do We lose our souls to this hatred they incite? We alone will be judged in the end for our part. Remember God's teachings... Love and understanding being primary. God Bless

    The US economy would collapse if the President of the US would be impeached . Trump is well aware of it and is surfing that wave with confidence but mostly with arrogance and lies. I don`t think this narrow minded individual ( money , profit privilege is all he seeks ) is aware what`s coming ! He is too focused on playing Potus ,...like a little child playing with a new toy. Unfortunately the Human specie is about to face a much bigger threat than this idiot`s behavior , and it isn`t financial neither ! The Human specie is facing its own EXTINCTION !! Yes , you read it right, in fact we are undergoing as of right now the 6th Extinction . The Human specie is on the verge of Extinction ....Global warming being the major cause. Yes..WE ARE DONE , GAME OVER !!! . ..at the Age of Extinction only love remains ! " Guy Mc Pherson "
