CNN reporter Jim Acosta has been called out for his “disgusting” comments about conservative radio icon, Rush Limbaugh.
Limbaugh recently announced he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during President Trump’s State of the Union Speech, a surprise move that left Limbaugh quite emotional.
Acosta noted that the President’s speech had been an attempt to reach out to the black community, but having Limbaugh there – somebody he believes has a history of racist commentary – evened things out.
“He was trying to make appeals to the African American community,” Acosta noted.
That said, “It can’t be forgotten that he was awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, who has a history of making derogatory comments about African Americans.”
“So I think, you know, overall, it’s a wash,” Acosta sneered.

Acosta Gets Wrecked
Fox News host Laura Ingraham, a friend of Limbaugh’s, jumped on Acosta’s comments, slamming him for the incendiary and inflammatory lies he was telling CNN viewers.
“Jim Acosta is disgusting. That is a disgusting comment. Disgusting comment and false,” Ingraham fumed.
“Every time they lose, they cry racism. Every time they lose, they say, ‘You’re a mean, horrible xenophobe.’ It’s insult after insult. What they accuse Trump of … is what they do routinely,” she continued.
Ingraham is right. Democrats and their little media minions like Acosta got their a** handed to them during the State of the Union speech, as evidenced by Pelosi’s temper tantrum near the end.
The only response they have now is to lash out at anybody and everybody by claiming they’re racists.

Limbaugh’s Producer Slams Acosta
Ingraham wasn’t the only one to lash out at Acosta. Limbaugh’s longtime producer, James Golden, who fans of the show know as ‘Bo Snerdley,’ took umbrage with the CNN reporter’s garbage assessment.
In fact, Snerdley, who is black, issued a challenge after Acosta slammed his broadcast partner.
“I just saw the footage from CNN’s Jim Acosta saying Rush has a ‘history’ of saying disparaging things about African Americans,” he tweeted. “I have been in the studio with Rush for 30 years. I would like to formally challenge CNN and [Acosta] to provide the list.”
Acosta has yet to respond, likely busy at home on the couch in his Nancy Pelosi footie pajamas. But his gutter-dwelling minions certainly jumped in, sending example after example of what they thought Golden should view as racist.
Undaunted, he swatted away every feeble attempt.
“I can tell you from my life experience who is a racist. Can you? I love how liberal non-African Americans try define what is racist to African Americans,” Golden scoffed.
