CNN clown Jim Acosta had an epic meltdown after President Trump blasted Joe Biden — a lifelong centrist — for veering to the far-left in order to pander to the radical, extremist fringe of the Democrat Party.
Trump also called out Biden’s decades-long history of appeasing communist China.
President Trump made the remarks during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden to announce an executive order rescinding Hong Kong’s special economic status after communist China seized control of the once-democratic city.
At the event, Trump condemned the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) for oppressing the people of Hong Kong, many of whom wave American flags and sing the U.S. national anthem during their anti-communism protests.
Trump said: “I signed an executive order ending U.S. preferential treatment for Hong Kong. Hong Kong will now be treated the same as mainland China: no special privileges, no special economic treatment, and no export of sensitive technologies.”
After announcing his executive order, President Trump tore into Democrat Joe Biden, who has long enjoyed a cozy relationship with communist China during his five decades in office.
Joe has been accused of abusing his power to help his son Hunter Biden secure $1.5 billion in financing from the Chinese government just 10 days after Hunter tagged along with him on a 2013 taxpayer-funded trip to China.
At the time, Biden was Barack Obama’s vice president.
Many say the only reason why China gave Hunter $1.5 billion for his fledgling investment fund in 2013 was because his dad Joe was involved in shady pay-for-play politics.

President Trump drew a contrast between himself and Biden, who has embraced the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement and other socialist policies.
“Biden has gone radical-left,” Trump said. “There’s never been a time when two candidates were so different.”

Trump then rattled off a laundry list of dumb things Biden did to elevate China into an economic juggernaut that’s now trying to destroy America:
“Joe Biden and President Obama freely allowed China to pillage our factories, plunder our communities, and steal our most precious secrets.”
“Joe Biden supported China’s entry into the World Trade Organization — one of the greatest geopolitical and economic disasters in world history.”
“Biden personally led the effort to give China permanent, most-favored-nation status.”
“America lost nearly 10,000 factories while Joe Biden was Vice President.”

Predictably, CNN operative Jim Acosta and other leftists got triggered.
Acosta tweeted: “Trump soiled the WH Rose Garden with that performance. Presidents do not use the Rose Garden in that kind of naked political fashion. That was not a press conference. It was a campaign rally disguised as a press conference. It was a bait and switch.”
Media analyst Mark Dice responded by saying the only bait-and-switch is CNN pretending to be a news organization when, in reality, it’s the PR arm of the Democrat Party.
Dice quipped: “Talk about a bait and switch. CNN claims to be a news network, but delivers conspiracy theories and slander 24/7.”

Tony Schaffer, a retired U.S. Army Reserve lieutenant colonel, joked that the only person “soiling” himself (other than Acosta) is Sleepy Joe.

Joe Biden’s camp also had a meltdown and demanded that President Trump reimburse taxpayers for campaigning from the Rose Garden.
In a statement, Biden rep Kate Bedingfield whined: “The American taxpayer should be reimbursed for the abuse of funds this spectacle represented. Today’s statement that was ostensibly supposed to be about China, but there was one topic that President Trump couldn’t seem to get off his mind: Joe Biden, whose name the President invoked nearly 30 times.”
Fox News anchor Bret Baier also criticized President Trump, saying if Obama had spoken like this, Republicans would be upset.
“Had President Obama made this kind of speech from the Rose Garden, Republicans on Capitol Hill would likely have been up in arms,” Baier said.
However, Baier noted that it’s up to each president how they use their pulpit during an election year.
“Presidents in the past by tradition have stayed away from overt campaign rhetoric from the Rose Garden or the White House, but it is the President’s discretion,” Baier said.
