CNN’s Acosta: Tonight’s a ‘Tide Pod Kind of Night––Nobody Really Wants to Swallow a Compromise’


During his live report on shutdown eve, CNN’s Jim Acosta invoked, um, Tide Pods.

No, seriously.

Acosta broke down all the scrambling on Capitol Hill to try and work something out before the midnight deadline, but it’s unclear there will be a compromise.

But as he reported on the news, Acosta said this to Anderson Cooper:

“This is turning into a Tide Pod kind of night, nobody really wants to swallow a compromise in this city tonight, Anderson.”


So does that mean we need Gronk to handle negotiations now?
