Did The White House Communications Team Finally Break CNN’s Jim Acosta? (VIDEO)

CNN’s Jim Acosta is incredibly frustrated with the communications team in Trump’s White House, arguing on Monday that the non-answers, off-camera briefings, and stonewalling does a disservice to the American people.

On Monday, press secretary Sean Spicer opted to hold a press gaggle off-camera with no audio, leaving correspondents to work only with transcripts.

Acosta, who is usually quite even-keeled on camera, became visibly agitated when discussing how difficult it can be to get answers out of the White House.

“The White House press secretary is getting to a point, Brooke, where he’s just kind of useless,” Acosta argued. “You know, if he can’t come out and answer the questions and they’re not going to do this on camera or audio…why are we having these briefings or gaggles in the first place?”

When host Brooke Baldwin asked Acosta if he had a hard time getting answers from Spicer at Monday’s gaggle, he became even more angry.

“That’s the White House right behind me,” Acosta replied. “The White House! And it’s just bizarre. I don’t know what world we’re living in right now, Brooke.”

“I don’t know why everybody is going along with this,” he said. “It just feels like we’re slowly but surely being dragged into what is a new normal.”

    Exactly. They keep asking the same question over and over again trying to torture us in some kind of demented interrogation of the press secy. It’s really sick.

    Acosta: you’re fake news–you abused the process. You are being punished. Acosta, Why are you a hateful buttslutt? See that is an example of an abusive question. CNN asks abusive questions that undermine the office of the president–that hurts everyone in america because the government cannot function when its made to look like it has no authority or credibility. Your fact-free, evidence free Trump-Russia whisper campaign ought to have some people put in jail for it. After all, it’s called ‘sedition’ but you see you’ve created a situation wherein he cannot do that without looking ike the fascist you’ve made him out to be, so instead he’s going to have to change the game

    Make no mistake, what CNN has done–and is the ultimate ringleader in this deepstate abuse against both a citizen and standing, fairly elected president–is gaslight the public in a vast, asymmetric, nonlinear war against the american mind in a psychological war that is seemingly without end. We’re fed up with it.

    CNN gets a timeout, we’ll not only go along with it, we’ll double down and put INFOWARS in the white house press room. Why? Because it’s you that did this. To quote the great deathcultist pizzamonger and hero of our times, James Alefantis of DC,

    You did this to YOU

    It’s your culture

    In Tikrit we have a word for men like this Jim…”Mangina.” Also, Brooke looks like somebody told her to stop farting in the elevator.
