CNN’s Jim Acosta Calls Trump Racist For Pointing Out Origin of Coronavirus – Just Weeks After He Did the Same Thing

CNN reporter Jim Acosta accused President Trump of ‘xenophobia’ for pointing out the foreign origins of the coronavirus, despite doing the same thing himself weeks earlier.

In an address to the nation from the Oval Office Wednesday night, the President updated Americans on what steps his administration is taking in order to blunt the spread of the disease.

Trump noted – accurately – that the coronavirus outbreak “started in China” and that the White House was embarking on “the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history.”

Beside Himself

Acosta reported back to his equally unintelligent colleague Chris Cuomo at anti-Trump headquarters, and declared the President’s perfectly correct statements to be – you guessed it – racist!

“The other thing, Chris, that I think we should point out, at one point during the address the president referred to the Coronavirus as a quote, ‘foreign virus,'” Acosta recorded for his diary.

“That, I think, was interesting because I was talking to sources this evening, one of the points that the president wanted to make tonight, wanted to get across to Americans is that this virus did not start here…”

That’s Racist

So distraught was Acosta, that the only explanation he could dream up is that Trump’s reference to the coronavirus as foreign and from China must be his racism seeping through.

“Now why the president would go as far as to describe it as a foreign virus, that is something we’ll also be asking questions about,” he explained.

“But it should be pointed out that Stephen Miller, who is an immigration hardliner who advises the president is one of the top domestic policy advisers and speechwriter, was a driving force in writing this speech and I think it is going to come across to a lot of Americans as smacking of xenophobia to use that kind of term in this speech.”

Advice to our readers – If you’re having a tough day, kick back, relax, and realize this: At least you’re not as embarrassing as Jim Acosta.

Jimmy Hypocrite

Not only is it idiotic to make the suggestion that pointing out origins of the coronavirus is racist – you know, the way they do with most diseases (see German measles, Ebola virus, etc.) – Acosta is proving to be a world-class hypocrite.

In a tweet just weeks earlier, Acosta reported that officials in China were taking measures “to contain the growing spread of Wuhan Coronavirus.”

Wuhan, of course, is the province in China where the outbreak began.

President Trump was correct when, during an event in India, he called Acosta out for having “probably the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”

“Your record is so bad that you ought to be ashamed of yourself,” Trump chastised.

Acosta’s continuing hypocrisy and lies shows he has no shame. No shame at all.

  • Is this one our 'educated idiots'. A person has to be pretty dumb to us the word 'racist' everytime there is something they don't like, aren't they smart enough to know a better word. Saying 'racist' is a word used by illiterates as they don't know a better word. DUH! Next thing they'll do is call them a racist for never wearing a white suit....that's how dumb the racist thing is.

  • HUUUMMM, I guess Trump should have said his Grand Parent took it over from the Isle of Sky when she came to America to avoid the truth that the deceased did come from China,in order to avoid the race card. Accosta is Goebbels without the brains.

  • What do you expect from this Trump hater reporter..??? He's always stirring with his hateful discourse to gain attention...When he quits his anti-Trump reporting he'll no longer be in the news, never..!!!

  • Let me get my third grader to explain it to lil' Jimmy. It didn't start off in America.. It didn't start in Europe. Where did it start lil' Jimmy? It started in China. That's what we call a foreign country. Maybe we can call it an imported virus. Would that make you feel better?

  • The fact this man remains employed by ANYONE who pretends to be a news service shows just how pathetic the media is.
