You’d think CNN’s Jim Acosta would learn to stop trying to ambush Republicans but he’ll never learn.
Acosta was hoping that he would some embarrassing video of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for his show but instead, he was the joke.
Rep. MTG posted on her Twitter account a video of Acosta ambushing her outside Capitol Hill.
“You know Jim, you have a show, and, in all fairness, you try to present this image of me to your viewers and it’s just really not correct,” she said.
“Well, we’re just trying to get some answers,” Acosta replied.
Acosta then asked MTG if she wanted former President Trump to declare martial law.
“I don’t recall those being my text messages,” Greene said told Jim he was lying.
“Why don’t you be honest?” Acosta asked Greene.
“You’re just another one of those liars on television,” she added. “And people hate it, they hate it. They can’t stand the liars on television.”
The congresswoman then requested Acosta show her the text messages so they could discuss them. Acosta whipped out his phone and he began reading them but stopped when he came to the quote, “I don’t know on those things.”
Wait, excuse me, stop,” Greene said. “‘I don’t know on those things.’ Is that what it says?”
“Why don’t you tell that story?” she asked.
“You’re lying. You’re a liar. You know why people don’t like you?” Greene asked. “Because you’re a liar. Why do you want to lie on television for your viewers?”
“I’m not trying to lie,” Acosta whinned.
“You’re accusing me of something, and then when you read the actual words it tells another story,” she continued. “It tells the truth.”
I am repulsed that people gladly take a paycheck to lie and mischaracterize me like this guy, Jim @Acosta.
I want to think good things about the press, but they behave like this and it makes me sick to my stomach. pic.twitter.com/jSOUPK9RM4
