Boos Rain Down As Jim Acosta Shouts At Trump, Asking If He’ll Apologize For January 6

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was met with a cascade of boos after shouting a question to Donald Trump on whether or not he’d apologize for the January 6 Capitol riot.

Acosta’s grandstanding ploy came during a visit to the southern border by the former President.

Trump, joined by a crowd of mostly Republican lawmakers, had just finished making remarks as he toured an unfinished part of the border wall.

That’s when Acosta sprang into action.

“Will you apologize about January 6?” he shouted.

Crowd Boos Jim Acosta

While the boos came raining down on Jim Acosta for his question regarding the Capitol protest on January 6, one person in the crowd had the presence of mind to reply by describing the CNN reporter’s stunt and/or entire career in three brief words.

“Acosta’s an idiot,” the individual can be heard shouting in return.

One can hardly blame Acosta for getting himself in a lather. This was a rare appearance by Trump since leaving the White House and his network really needs a shot in the arm for ratings.

CNN has been involved in numerous embarrassing headlines of late, not the least of which have been cratering ratings and their network being absolutely destroyed publicly by the popular podcast host, Joe Rogan.

Acosta recently admitted that journalists are suffering from “post-Trump stress disorder.”

But CNN’s main resistance warrior is a professional, undaunted by ‘PTSD’ or being afflicted with ‘TDS’ the last four years.

Once the lights go on, he performs like a champ for his network bosses. And boy did he ever deliver, traveling all the way to Texas to shout an inane three-second question that had no chance of being acknowledged.

But hey, Acosta got to make it all about him rather than trying to be, you know … a reporter, and asking a question of substance that might lead to a newsworthy response.

And he’s got himself another diary entry to celebrate when he tucks himself in at night.

Apologize For January 6

Acosta’s circus stunt comes as the House of Representatives voted Wednesday to create a select committee to probe the January 6 Capitol protest, with two equally clownish Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger backing the effort.

Kinzinger and Cheney must be proud sharing common cause with someone like Acosta.

If Trump needs to apologize and be investigated for telling supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” on January 6, then we’re still waiting on Acosta and CNN’s apologies for pushing fake news during his presidency that led to skepticism of everything by his voters.

Where is the apology for pushing Russian collusion conspiracies? Or fake news regarding the so-called ‘Bible photo-op’ story? A false narrative CNN still has on their website.

Perhaps an apology from CNN for actively burying stories on Hunter Biden that have since proven true? Efforts to bury the Wuhan lab leak theory, which has since garnered further attention?

Will Acosta apologize for his network pushing the Russia bounty story which has since fallen apart?

A description of Acosta’s book by his publisher, released in 2019 and titled “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America,” describes Jim as “fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth.”

The only thing Acosta is fighting, aside from the latest boos, IS the truth.

  • Loose screw Acosta needs to be booed EVERY time he opens his mouth. He just wants attention, like a spoiled child

  • Good Afternoon someone should kick Acosta Ass he's suck a J O don't know why they evan leave him in these press conference he belongs to the democrats bought and paid for scum bag

  • That guy, Jim Acosta, should be ashamed to say he's a journalist. He and Psaki should get the biggest "Liar Award" since Psaki just said that the GOP (Trump) caused this border crisis. Does she really think we're that dumb? No wonder she's stepping down! I guess she's hoping that all the lame brain liberals who voted for Biden will believe the garbage she spews.

  • CNN are nothing but fools. They love being the rear end of the dem party. They are a laughing stock of the media world. All the reality show journalists in this puppet show are just a bunch of cowardly puppets. With this Jim guy being the star of the whole show. Dance jimmy dance

  • Acosta is a real moron, a fake journalist and a fake human being who should soon be out of a job (what with the ratings he gets).

  • What a pos - is Maxine waters gonna apologize Jim? Have you asked her about the lefts calls for actual political violence? These dopes are frauds. Next time someone should put that little weasel in a sleeper for his traitorous propaganda. I’ll pay your bail in a heartbeat. So sick of the left.

  • Jim Acosta is a Demmunist propaganda HACK and glory hound who tries to make EVERY news story all about himself. He is absolutely USELESS as an actual journalist, and what he broadcasts is only Demmunist propganda and OUTRIGHT LIES, not news!

  • As if we need any more proof that Jim Acosta is a total moron, he just keeps on proving it again and again like most leftist clowns. The last thing Trump said before the "insurrection" was him asking for people to be peaceful, funny how the leftist run "news" channels dont ever mention this as it goes against their false narrative. Those same fake news channels never mention how the crooked leftist run FBI knew about this planned insurrection weeks before it happened, and did nothing to prevent it. They also fail to mention that multiple eye witnesses said some obviously fake "Trump supporters"(probably ANTIFA) wearing MAGA hats, were the ones instigating violence with the police and the true Trump supporters were trying to get them to stop. Some people even said they saw some of these "Trump supporters" aka ANTIFA members being brought into the area in vans. And the cops let people in the capitol building, there is actually video of a cop waving people in, unless its been taken down like the picture of the ANTIFA member with the beard and commie hand tattoo standing next to another ANTIFA member with a communism flag.

    The entire "insurrection" was a planned event by the left to disrupt the talks that would have been discussing voter fraud, as well as of course to always to blame everything on Trump. The democrats and RINOs are the scum of the earth and should be riding the lightning on the electric chair for multiple counts of treason.
