I just love … well … me!

Jim Acosta, that plucky little fighter for Truth, Real News and Self-Promotion, doesn’t want to make the news all about himself.
But he can’t help it!
He’s just so DREAMY!!
This guy is such a narcissist, he manages to make Jim Comey look self-deprecating and humble.
You should be so lucky to find someone who loves you as much as Acosta loves himself.
Jim @Acosta tells @colbertlateshow that he doesn’t want to “be the story” but can’t just “sit back and do nothing” as @realDonaldTrump tries to systematically discredit the press. https://t.co/V2gsGaZXYS

Jim Acosta can’t stop making himself the story because he’s a narcissistic prick.
“Don’t make me the story,” he modestly said to a wildly applauding audience on a nationally broadcast entertainment show

It’s like when Obama used to repeatedly say, “This is not about me.”
And the more he said it, the clearer it became that it was all about Obama.
Likewise, Jim’s reporting is all about Acosta.
Jim is reveling in his newfound fame and celebrity.
And how did he get that fame and celebrity?
He didn’t get it because of any journalistic prowess.
And he didn’t get it for his dogged commitment to the truth.
Jim got this fame and celebrity by being an utter attention-hungry prat in the White House briefing room. Then rushing for the cameras to whine about how mistreated he is.
He’s used the anti-Trump ResistanceLOL to turn himself into a star.
It’s craven and cynical.
But it isn’t “journalism.”
When even a Liberal website like The Atlantic is calling Acosta out for his antics – labeling it “Performance Journalism,” you know he’s pushed this self-aggrandizement too hard and too far.
Nothing about Jim Acosta’s behavior indicates that he is really, really struggling not to make himself the story.
Case in point his angry ingenue “storm out” over Sarah Sanders refusing to parrot his statement on the press being the enemy of the people.
How many times do you think Jim watched the video of himself storming off in a snit?
Once? Twice? A couple dozen times?
He was so proud of himself.
I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened. Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn't do it. Shameful.

No, honey. You didn’t walk out because you were “so saddened.” You walked out to make the story about you.
And you won’t stop because in the World According to Jim, you are the star – the star who stares lovingly at his own reflection in the mirror.
