Internet troll Baked Alaska caught up with Jim Acosta toward the tail end of a Donald Trump rally in Los Angeles on Wednesday and called CNN’s chief White House correspondent “fake news.”
The Trump supporter, who most recently made headlines for probably lying about getting blinded ahead of the Charlottesville rally, approached Acosta and struck up a friendly conversation, telling him “he’s a big fan.”
“There’s a small scuffle there or something,” Acosta answered when asked about an apparent fight that had broken out at the demonstration. “Not sure yet, but think so.”
As Acosta turned to leave, Alaska launched his parting shot.
“I just want you to know, I appreciate what you do. And you’re fake news.”
“OK,” Acosta responded dejectedly. “Thanks.”
