Eric Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity attacked CNN’s Jim Acosta — for continuing to play the victim of the rhetoric of the Trump administration — during a segment of Hannity’s show Thursday night.
“So they spew nonsense all day and then little Jim Acosta gets you know, belittled at a rally, and all of the sudden ‘I’m holier than’ — I mean it’s really incredible,” Trump said. “I’ve been threatened, our family’s been threatened, all of us. We’ve all had white powder show up at our house.”
“And by the way there’s no moral outrage about that,” he continued.
“And you know what, you know how much it was reported, that comment of Melania, which was one of the truly most disgusting, you know what they said about it? Nothing. You know who the only person who actually really came to Melania’s bat was Laura Ingraham.”
“CNN sucks. The problem with them, and I try to give them advice, of course they’re not going to listen,” Hannity stated. “But it’s sort of like the media, they never thought he could win, they mocked that he was running, he beat sixteen other people, he beat the Hillary Clinton machine.”
Hannity and Trump’s comments come after Acosta and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders got into a heated argument during Thursday’s press briefing. (RELATED: Acosta Demands Sanders Denounce ‘Enemy Of The People’ Rhetoric)
