CNN’s Acosta Demands Female Journalist Get To Ask Question At Trump Presser
President Donald Trump shrugged at a Wednesday press conference when CNN reporter Jim Acosta demanded a female journalist get to ask a question after him.
Acosta received a question from the president at a press conference at the United Nations in New York City on Wednesday. Before asking his question, Acosta demanded that the next question go to one of his female colleagues in the press corps.
“If you don’t mind, after I’m finished if … one of our female colleagues could go after me that would be great,” Acosta said.
Trump appeared confused and asked, “What does he mean by that?”
“What does that mean?” he repeated. “What does it mean, no, what does it mean?”
Acosta explained, “It would be great if a female reporter asked you a question about this issue,” referring to the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Trump replied with a shrug and a bit of an eye roll. “Wouldn’t make any difference to me.”
