CNN’s Jim Acosta goes after Trump voters

CNN newsman Jim Acosta has a way of getting attention.   
He shouted questions at President Trump when he was playing with children at the White House Easter Egg Hunt.   He does a terrible imitation of Sam Donaldson.   

And now he is apparently attacking Trump voters, saying:    

Their elevator might not hit all the floors.
And that people who threaten reporters are Trump supporters.
Acosta on Wednesday said he did not intend to imply that people who threaten reporters are all supporters of President Trump.
“Regarding my interview with Variety, my comments have been twisted by some outlets,” he tweeted. “As you can plainly see, I’m not referring to Trump supporters. I am talking about people who threaten journalists. 

O.K., I don’t pretend to read Acosta’s mind or to know what’s in his heart.   Therefore, I prefer to listen to what he actually said.   It sounds to me here that Acosta was indeed talking down the Trump voters.

Acosta was saying that President Trump’s attacks on the media may inspire someone to harm journalists.     

To be honest, I do agree that President Trump tweets or attacks the media way too much, specially the networks with lousy viewership or newspapers losing money.    

At the same time, his attacks on the media are no more vicious than what President Obama or Democrats said about Fox News.    Did Jim Acosta ever say that those attacks threatened journalists?

Maybe someone at CNN will finally figure out that Jim Acosta is a ratings disaster.     At the same time, I don’t watch him and my guess is that most of you don’t, either.

And now Brokaw

Frankly, I don't know the truth.   In my book,  Mr. Brokaw is innocent until proven guilty.   Nevertheless, it is another blow for the media and the many who lectured us about how to treat women.

Bye bye California

Bye bye California or so we hear:  
In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal headlined "So Long, California. Sayonara, New York," Laffer and Moore (who have both advised President Donald Trump) say the new tax bill will cause a net 800,000 people to move out of California and New York over the next three years.
Time will tell but it makes sense to me.

Good news from from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals:   Texas Voter ID Law Gets the Go-Ahead!    The 2-1 decision reversed a lower court’s ruling.    Wonder how this decision will impact other Voter ID laws around the country?
