President Donald Trump held a press conference to announce his new choice for Labor Secretary… Alex Acosta.
He will be the first Hispanic member of Trump’s cabinet.
But for more than a hour, Trump railed on the the liberal media, shell-shocking liberal reporters who didn’t know just how bad it would be for them.
Trump gave a whooping and ate these journalists alive. This is one for the record books:
Trump made fun of CNN’s Jim Acosta, as he has the same last name as Trump’s choice for Labor Secretary. CNN now seems to operate as a 24/7 anti-Trump PR-machine, and Trump joked that they made sure there was no relation between the reporter and his nominee.
TRUMP: And you’re not related to our new —
ACOSTA: I am not related, sir. I do like the sound of Secretary Acosta, I must say.
TRUMP: You know, I looked at that name. I said wait a minute. Is there any relation there, Alex Acosta?
ACOSTA: I’m sure you checked that out, sir.
TRUMP: No, I checked it. I said — they said, no, sir. I said do me a favor, go back and check the family tree.
All liberal CNN could say in response was: “WOW!”

The establishment media was overwhelmed:
Tapper: “It was unhinged. It was wild..a lot of Americans are going to watch that press conference & say, ‘That guy is not focused on me.'”

But Sean Hannity echoed the views of Trump supporters, who loved the media beat-down:

Trump came out swinging full force, and didn’t hold back. This is the Trump we all loved during the Republican primary, and he’s back fighting hard.
Finally, Republicans have a spokesman who will fight back against the media, instead of letting them define everything.
