CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta lashed out via Twitter at Laura Ingraham after the Fox News host took a swipe at him during a Thursday appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland.
Ingraham reportedly said on Thursday, “Jim Acosta of CNN: he’s a nice person. He was complaining this morning on television — I know that’s not news — he was complaining that President Trump didn’t call on U.S. media at the summit presser and that he only called on the Russian and the Chinese journalists. Well, it turns out, a producer just told me he called on ABC, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Bloomberg, and NPR. But he just didn’t call on Jim Acosta. The land of narcissism knows no bounds.”
The Fox News host added that Acosta would “probably get a better shake from the Chinese and Russian journalists,” a reference Acosta latched onto when formulating his Twitter response.
“Of course Laura Ingraham sides with the folks at Russian and Chinese State media. Those are her kind of people,” Acosta tweeted, along with the hashtag #PropagandistsUnited.
