CNN’s Jim Acosta Badgers Trump About DACA During White House Easter Egg Roll

CNN’s Jim Acosta Badgers Trump About DACA During White House Easter Egg Roll

“Didn’t you kill DACA, sir? Didn’t you kill DACA?”

The 140th annual White House Easter Egg Roll took place Monday morning. The egg roll is a tradition dating back to 1878.

During the Easter Egg Roll, The White House lawn is filled with children participating in various activities from coloring to bunny hopping.

While Trump was coloring with his family and other children, CNN’s Jim Acosta used the close press pool opportunity to badger the president about DACA.

“Mr. President, what about the DACA kids? Should they worry about what’s going to happen to them, sir? Continuing, “Didn’t you kill DACA, sir? Didn’t you kill DACA?”

The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson videoed Acosta:

Naturally, other members of the press rushed to Acosta’s defense citing an incident during Obama’s tenure.

The national press lambasted The Daily Caller reporter for behaving this way. But it’s worth noting that the Rose Garden announcement they’re referencing was an immigration policy announcement, not a traditionally apolitical event specifically for children.

During Trump’s White House Tenure, Acosta has made a name for himself as one of the few pool reporters who repeatedly make themselves the story while simultaneously wearing out their victim card.

Sunday, Trump tweeted, “NO MORE DACA DEAL”. Congress has yet to concoct legislation to protect Dreamers and Democrats continue to use DACA as a bargaining chip rather than negotiating in earnest.

I blogged earlier:

Late last week, it was reported that a “caravan” of close to a thousand Central Americans were marching through Mexico and onward to the southern U.S. border. Their goal is “to cross our border by seeking asylum, crossing illegally, or by exploiting the ongoing “catch and release” policy,” Fuzzy Slippers blogged Sunday.

…When the Trump Administration announced the cancellation of DACA, they indicated they would support legislation that provided similar protections. A legislative deadline of March 5 was set. That deadline has come and gone and Congress has yet to act.

During the Omnibus Spending Bill press conference, Trump lashed out at Democrats for refusing to include DACA protections among the bill’s hodgepodge of provisions, accusing them of political posturing.

So a clown came to the egg roll.

Are we certain that Jim Acosta is not working for the Trump campaign? Because if I ran an op to garner sympathy for my client and make his enemies look like jackasses, this would be it.

what about the DACA kids? Should they worry about what’s going to happen to them, sir?

They’re living illegally in somebody else’s country.

They should worry.

    They haven’t worried so far.

    Evidently they’re just pleased as punch to be the Democrats new slaves………..

Acosta needs to STFU. Or have someone help him do it.

Acosta reminds me of the movie Shrek(1) when Donkey jumps up and down yelling “Pick me! Pick me!”

They should revoke his press credentials.

Jim Acosta’s manners are poor, and so the Trump press secretaries have refused to take him seriously. He seems to be under the impression that he has no other recourse than to double down on the bad behavior. That strategy might have won, with a different administration.

Elective abortion? No. The anti-native activists in America, Mexico, etc. exposed Americans and aliens to immediate, imminent, and even progressive risk.

A good percentage of the DACA “kids” are no longer kids – they’re grown adults, old enough to realize they’re in the wrong, make amends, and go back home to make a positive difference in their own countries.
