If they weren’t so smug I’d almost feel bad for them because CNN is just pathetic when it comes to that news thing. CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who loves make the story about himself, just achieved his goal and managed to pull off an amazing feat at the same time.
The fake news journalist attacked President Trump using fake history. Unfortunately for him, his humiliation is very real.
And here’s his write up:
According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a “national security” issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” referring to the War of 1812.
The problem with Trump’s comments to Trudeau is that British troops burned down the White House during the War of 1812. Historians note the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario, in territory that eventually became Canada, which was then a British colony.
Did you get that? Trump is stupid because he thinks it was the Canadians, not the British who burned down the White House during the War of 1812. Acosta definitely scored some big “resistance” points with that important news story, didn’t he?
