CNN Host Calls Out Trump On Being Passive In Light Of Hurricane Harvey… What?

During a Friday White House briefing, CNN senior correspondent Jim Acosta challenged President Trump when he directly asked him what he was doing to “keep Texans safe” from Hurricane Harvey.

“Good morning Mr. President … what is your administration doing about the hurricane to keep Texans safe?” Acosta tweeted.

Even though Trump was not tagged in the tweet, it was pretty obvious the message was a mockery of the president.

Acosta forgot to mention how Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott stated earlier that Trump offered to provide “all available resources from the federal government” to help the community protect itself against e hurricane.

“President Trump called Gov. Abbott to offer federal support for the State of Texas as Hurricane Harvey approaches the Gulf Coast. The president pledged all available resources from the federal government to assist in preparation and rescue and recovery efforts,” Abbott stated.

“The governor thanked the president for his pledge of support and assured him that the state is working hand-in-hand with local and federal partners on all issues related to the storm,” the statement further explained.

Abbotteven posted a photo in which he is talking to President Trump in regards to the state of emergency. The phone call also involved heads of the Homeland Security and FEMA.

Louisiana Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards also tweeted that Trump reached out to him as well, offering him “full support” for the state in case of a necessity.

Finally, Acosta overlooked Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ statement on behalf of the White House:

We have acting (Homeland Security) Secretary Elaine Duke, who’s watching this closely and very involved in the process along with the acting director for FEMA, and again, I think that we are in great shape, having (White House chief of staff Gen. John) Kelly sitting next to the president throughout this process,” Sanders said.

“There’s probably no better chief of staff for the president during the hurricane season, and the president has been briefed and will continue to be updated as the storm progresses. And certainly it’s something he’s very aware of and will keep a very watchful eye on,” Sanders added. “He stands ready to provide resources if needed.”

Although Acosta was present during Sanders’ briefing, he still made an intentional move against Trump, suspecting his motives.

It wasn’t long after that Acosta tweeted another photo:

Acosta is merely reaching for attention, instead of having the people’s best interest at heart. It is pawns like him that bring this country to collapse, without taking any consequences into consideration.

“Not a good time to take shots at ‘fake news.’ Millions will be relying on national and local news outlets to stay safe during hurricane,” Acosta tweeted again.

Your petty efforts are taking you nowhere Acosta. Time for some reality check.

    Acosta is an example of Democratic Dementia that has infected the Trump haters throughout our nation. This is another example of how this dementia spread.

    The country will never move forward, untill people get behind the President and support him instead of being negative about every thing he does, he is doing a good job, so start helping instead of hindering.

    Acosta needs to be fired from his reporting duties. He and his kind are exactly what’s wrong with our country. He’s a rabble rouser of the worst kind. Acosta’s loyalty to our Country is in question, and I think that he needs investigation by the FBI and Home Land Security Adm. He’s carrying free speech way too far.
