Jim Acosta: We Saw Trump’s True Colors Today and ‘Not Sure They Were Red, White and Blue’

Following President Donald Trump’s insane press conference where he blamed “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville and essentially came to the defense of the alt-right, CNN correspondent Jim Acosta seemed to question whether the president was sufficiently American.

Having already said earlier in the day that Trump’s presidency went “off the rails,” Acosta showed up on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon seemed to echo much of what host Don Lemon said earlier today when the anchor stated that the president’s “true colors are coming out.”

“I think we saw the president’s true colors today,” Acosta stated. “I’m not sure they were red, white, and blue.”

The reporter added that the White House had sent out talking points to Trump surrogates telling them to say that the president was “entirely correct” in blaming both sides.

“This is Alice in Wonderland stuff,” he added. “They’re right in one respect. He has united the country against the views that he espoused today which were right there on the edge of white nationalism.”
