Colbert was joined by a host of people on the right who mocked Acosta's childish outburst.
Far-left, anti-Trump television personalities typically stick together, but Stephen Colbert broke from tradition on Wednesday when he scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta for grandstanding during a Wednesday press conference in New York City.
“Kind of a d--- move, Jim Acosta. We get it, you’re woke,” Colbert said.
Acosta disrupted the press conference when he asked President Trump whether “one of our female colleagues” could be called on after he questioned the president, prompting Trump to question Acosta's protocol request.
"What does he mean by that?" Trump asked.
