CNN’s Jim Acosta Just Gave The Best Response To Trump’s Remarks On Today’s White Supremacy Rally

Last week, CNN’s Jim Acosta became a target of conservative rage when he had the audacity to take the side of the Statue of Liberty in a press conference in which White House aide Stephen Miller justified President Trump’s proposed immigration restrictions with racist, un-American rhetoric.

Now, Acosta is calling out Trump for his part in today’s white supremacist violence that left one dead and 19 others injured in Virginia.

Prior to Trump’s press conference, Acosta pointed to the movement that elected Trump last year:

Nevertheless, he expressed hope that Trump would rise above politics and do what is right:

However, Trump did not rise at all. He pandered to his racist base and gave tacit approval to the racial hatred that continues to plague our nation. Acosta fired off two tweets, carefully to remain apolitical, but he is clearly appalled by the shameful lack of leadership and integrity from our Commander-in-Chief. We should all be.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
