    I know Trump wont call on him to ask a question but they should stick him in the front row anyways.

    CNN’s just “poking the bear”.

    Seems a bit childish. Sinking to Trump’s level.

    He’s CNN’s chief White House correspondent. Having him do his job is not childish.

    You're right. I was reacting more to the thread title, "CNN Trolls Trump"
    --- Post Merged, Nov 11, 2018 ---
    Did Acosta change his tweet in that story? The one I saw earlier seemed a bit more provocative. The current one is more professional.

    A dictator likes to discredit the press, call the truth a "lie" while they spread lies themselves. Trump needs a good journalistic trolling. An inept idiot who usually can't answer a question even if he wanted to, lies and bullies his way out of answering. Put his feet to the proverbial fire.

    I agree with you on that. The thread title is unnecessary. CNN having Acosta do his job isn’t trolling.

    While some disagree with the thread title, I do think CNN is a doing a bit of trolling. Given how Acosta was treated and how CNN responded by outright calling Sanders a liar, I don't doubt for a moment that making sure Acosta is in Europe right now covering DJT is a bit of poking. Otherwise, they would have given Acosta a timeout by sending someone else until things cool off a bit.
