CNN’s Senior White House journalist was not happy with Laura Ingraham after she made some comments about him at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.
She chided him for complaining about not getting a question from President Trump during a press conference in Vietnam.

Although there are many reasons someone could make jokes at Acosta’s expense, this particular jab was due to a recent white lie, as reported by Newsbusters:
Acosta just flat-out lied when he wasn’t called on at a Trump press conference in Hanoi, claiming “the President steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and was instead selecting journalists at random from the other side of the room where there were foreign journalists seated.”
As reported by Newsbusters:
There were at least six members of the White House press corps that were called on, starting with the very first questions from Major Garrett of CBS and John Roberts of Fox, in addition to Jon Karl of ABC (who asked about Michael Cohen), Ayesha Rascoe of NPR and print reporters (David Nakamura of The Washington Post, David Sanger of The New York Times, and Margaret Talev of Bloomberg, whose owner Michael Bloomberg might run against Trump).
