The White House pulled Acostas credentials this week after he sprayed Trump with questions about the Russia investigation, caravan fear mongering, etc. Acosta refused to give up his microphone at that morning-after-midterms presser when a clearly agitated Trump told him to shut up, sit down and added that CNN should be ashamed of him.
A White House intern was sent to try to grab the microphone out of Acostas hands, which she attempted several times, as Acosta said “Pardon me maam” and kept going.
“Not only did they suspend his credential, they claim Acosta accosted a female intern,” Kimmel marveled in his JKL monologue.
“Thats where the Hucka-B.S. machine comes in,” he revealed.
“She tweeted a doctored video clip that they believe to be from Infowars, which is a web site for the mentally unbalanced, in which they sped up Acostas hand movement, to make it look more violent,” Kimmel informed his viewers.
“And the part where he says Pardon me maam – they cut the audio out.”
“Jim Acosta clearly never touched that White House intern. Thats just a lie,” Kimmel stated.
On the bright side, the ABC late-night host snarked, “This also might be the first time Ive seen Sarah Sanders take the womans side on any subject ever. So good for her. Baby steps.”
“She should be forced to resign for that,” Kimmel insisted.
“She intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist. Shes the White House press secretary! She should be fired for that,” Kimmel pressed.
Meanwhile, Trump surrogate Kellyanne Conway was spreading the nonsense around cable news with “some of her fakest indignation to date,” Kimmel said, bringing out his Conway puppet to answer questions about that.
