Jim Acosta just cannot help but plant his foot in his mouth and he did it again today. He just opens himself up every time tweets or speaks. Just like his repeated attempts to heckle Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Acosta’s attempt to shame President Trump for pulling out of the nuclear deal Tuesday blew up in his face.
Apparently distraught like many of his colleagues about Trump dismantling Obama’s signal foreign policy achievement, Acosta took to Twitter to list Trump’s sins against the sacrosanct Obama legacy:
Obama policies dumped by Trump: Iran deal, Paris Climate Agreement, Trans-Pacific Trade Deal, DACA, Obamacare Individual Mandate

Twitchy was on the case highlighting the response online. This probably wasn’t quite as Acosta planned, with many Trump fans pointing out that Acosta just helpfully underscored that Trump, unlike most politicians, is actually keeping his campaign promises.
“I never thought I’d see this guy running campaign ads for Trump,” wrote one twitterer. “Does @CNN have to report this as an in-kind campaign contribution?”
Promises kept by Trump
Iran deal – gone
Paris Climate Agreement – gone
Trans-Pacific Trade Deal – gone
DACA – expired
Obamacare Individual Mandate – gone
Which is why we voted for him in the first place.
Thank you for being actually factual though, Jim. https://t.co/n5xybCsLTb

Many were just enjoying the fun at Acosta’s expense,

It’s called promises kept. We realize that’s a new concept after 8 yrs of lies. You’ll get used to it. Or not. We don’t care.

At last, we can all get behind something Jim Acosta tweets,
Trump said he would do these things. How sad is our society that we don’t want our politicians to do what they promised?
