He’s willing to say anything to bring down Trump.
According to Breitbart News, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta attacked President Donald Trump’s rallies stating that comparing his rally to the recent protests is “sort of an apples and oranges comparison.”
Acosta said, “I think that the president understands that his re-election hopes are tied to motivating this base. And so, this has become almost his top priority right now, if not his top priority. I will tell you, when we asked the Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, about this earlier today, she said there are no reservations inside the White House about having this rally. I asked Kayleigh McEnany whether or not she’s going to wear a mask. She’s going to be at the rally tomorrow night. She says she will not. She says it’s a personal choice for people who work at the White House. But Anderson, as you and I know, I mean, essentially, the president has politicized — the White House has politicized this issue of wearing masks. But given all of that, the Trump Campaign Manager, Brad Parscale, says he may wear a mask tomorrow night, and Kevin Hassett the president’s Economic Adviser, said if he were going, he would wear a mask. So, they’re all over the place on this issue. But listen to what Dr. Anthony Fauci said earlier today, he said in an interview with CBS Radio, that you should avoid large gatherings, and if you can’t do that, always wear a mask, and here you have the White House press secretary essentially saying, she’s not going to listen to Dr. Fauci’s advice.”
Acosta added, “The Trump campaign is having people sign waivers that say, if you come into this rally, you give up all recourse, in terms of suing the president or any of the organizers of the event, which is incredible. Because you’re going to have people going into this rally tomorrow. You just saw on the live shot…who just aren’t going to wear masks and they’re not going to be social distancing. When we asked Kayleigh McEnany about this, she said, well, CDC guidelines are recommended but not required. Well, of course, they’re recommended and not required. There’s no way for them to socially distance inside a crowded arena. So, they’re just not dealing with the reality of the situation, and that’s what we’ve been hearing from our sources all throughout this, Anderson.” You can read the full article here.
