Here’s What CNN Felt The Need To Ask During White House Press Briefing On Hurricane Irma’s Damage

During a press conference following Category 4 storm Hurricane Irma pounding Florida with up to 130 mph winds, CNN’s White House correspondent couldn’t help but make the storm political.


After addressing the severity of the storm, Homeland Security Advisor Thomas Bossert was ambushed by questions from Jim Acosta about whether climate change was the reason for recent hurricanes.

Acosta asked:

“When you see three Category 4 hurricanes all on the same map at the same time, does a thought occur to you, maybe there is something to this climate change thing and its connection to powerful hurricanes? Or do you just separate the two and say, ‘Boy, there’s a lot of big hurricanes coming our way?’”

“Well, I don’t know if I’d say either, but I do note that there’s a cyclical nature of a lot of these hurricane seasons. The scientists for their forecasts on this particular one, they were dead on that this would be a stronger, more powerful hurricane season. Slightly more than average, large storms making landfall. We will have to do a larger analysis on a later date.”


Watch the exchange below.

    You simply have to fight back and declare war on those CNN scumbag reporters,who want to create chaos by producing a steady flow of fake news and lies.Haven’t you noticed how they always present their made up stories by referring to: “breaking news” and “bombshells”?It’s laughable,because breaking news do not occur every day and anytime of the day.Expose scumbag reporters like Jim Acosta and Michael Smerconish to scorn and ridicule,which will help the public look through them.

    When you see a lot of stupid, self centered journalists asking self serving questions, do you attribute it to stupid, self centered journalists or to the death of journalism? Or do you just separate the two and just say “Boy, there are sure a lot of stupid questions coming our way?”

    Well, let’s see, the earth has been here for billions of years, we have been recording weather (accurately) for maybe 100 years.
    So how many storm or hurricanes have there been in a billion years? Maybe a billion!
