His popularity is similar to CNN’s, in the gutter.
CNN’s Jim Acosta just can’t get enough of Jim Acosta. The famously self-obsessed White House correspondent has a new book out, and you can bet he was ready to see those long lines of adoring fans ready to meet him at his first book signing.
But when the big day finally came, no one showed up.
In a tone-deaf Twitter post, Acosta gleefully tweeted photos of himself at a book signing in Arlington, Virginia.
The title of Acosta’s book — “The Enemy of the People — was stolen directly from Trump himself, when he slammed the fake news media as the “enemy of the people” for spreading lies and disinformation meant to gaslight them.
To be clear, President Trump never called the media itself the “enemy of the people,” but the fake-news shills who intentionally promote false narratives.
What’s hilarious is that Acosta was autographing a huge pile of his books in what appeared to be an empty book store. Notably, there were no fans clamoring around him, eager to meet him. …
Here’s Acosta’s original tweet:

And here’s the HILARIOUS reaction from Twitter, which was almost entirely negative:
Wow! The crowds!! Did you need security?
