Jim Acosta's Decision to Pick a Fight With Ted Cruz Proves to Be All Kinds of Wrong

Some people never learn. Little kids. Spoiled little kids. Bratty, spoiled little kids. And CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Case in point: I’ve lost track of how many times CNN’s intrepid former White House reporter has gotten his a** handed to him by Fox News and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R), but it’s a lot. Yet, he never learns.

As for Fox, it’s all about the ratings, Jim. End of story. And Cruz? Not exactly the guy you want to challenge to a mental gymnastics contest, my man. Simply put: battle of wits, no ammunition.

Yet, there he went again — and we love every minute of it.

As gleefully reported — although I have no idea why, given the fool Acosta made out of himself — by left-wing rag Raw Story, the CNN “journalist” on Friday repeatedly “called bulls**t” on Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters, Fox itself, and Cruz, a frequent Fox News guest.

Acosta was infantile from the outset.

“It’s that time of the year, the days are getting shorter, it’s cold outside — it’s also when we start looking back at the past year.

And what a year it was over on Fox — or, as I’ve described it this year, the bulls**t factory. [How cute, bless your jealous little heart.] Just in the last week, they’ve churned out so much BS it’s hard to keep up.” [Oh, ha.]

Acosta, who has always fancied his silly self as some kind of modern-day Edward R. Murrow or Walter Cronkite, got his typical Barney vibe on, all proud of himself for saying “bulls**t” on the air — particularly about Fox News. Almost like he wet his pants a little bit, each time he said “the naughty word.”

Speaking “directly to” Carlson, Jimbo said:

“We once honored you with the distinction of bulls**t factory employee of the month, but now that 2021 is coming to an end, we decided to honor you as our first-ever BS factory employee of the year.”

“Honored”? Says who? Post-Trump, CNN’s ratings have raced down the ratings toilet faster than Michael Moore running from a door-to-door health food salesman. Now that Corn Pop’s pal sits in the Oval Office, CNN’s only reason for existence has been to desperately try to save this guy from himself — to no avail.

Acosta eventually turned to Cruz, suggesting the Texan could’ve been a candidate for CNN’s silly “bulls**t factory employee of the month” award if he were a Fox employee instead of an “aspiring” employee.

Here’s how that went:

“Ted Cruz — he could have been a contender with his recent criticism of Big Bird — and his accusation that Liz Cheney suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome.” [Um, Jim?]

CNN then rolled a clip of Cruz saying:

“I look at the situation of Liz Cheney and I just think it’s sad. I think she falls into the category of people who Donald Trump just broke. Just shattered — she’s lashing out at Trump, at Republicans, at everything. She’s become a Democrat and it’s sad to watch what has happened. It is Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

As to Big Bird, as we reported earlier this month after the bird-turned-COVID-vax-advocate showed up on CNN to shill for the vaccine, Cruz promptly labeled the PBS taxpayer-funded kid show’s sales job: “Government propaganda… for your five-year-old!”

Fortunately — purely for entertainment purposes, Cruz responded to Acosta’s silliness.

There is a reason that CNN has no viewers.

It is not remotely a news organization. It’s just angry, dishonest, partisan propagandists.

Can you imagine Walter Cronkite doing this?

Acosta is a 🤡🤡

But that’s ok: 6X as many people will see this tweet as watch his show!

Mic drop, right? Not yet.

Cruz added:

Who cares? Acosta’s rant so imbecilic & juvenile, it doesn’t matter how many people watch it. The more the better—it unmasks & beclowns CNN, simultaneously.

Zackly.

Finally, this last bit of stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome insanity from our Jimbo:

“Fox News can’t run away from Trump or Trumpism. Fox is Trump, and Trump is Fox.”

Earth to Jim: Fox News kicks CNN’s a** every day of the week and twice on Sunday. And nobody knows whether or not you’re even still on the air, much less when. Why the h*ll would Fox News want to run away from anything? Least of which, you and CNN?

You know — the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” thing?

I’ll wait.
