Jim Acosta Mocks Trump For Lying About McCain’s Funeral


Wednesday, the president made the ridiculous mistake of telling the biggest whopper of his presidency; that he controlled John McCain’s funeral last year. According to the president’s speech to Ohio workers yesterday:

“I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK.”

The Washington National Cathedral, which hosted the ceremony for the McCain family, responded to Trump’s claims with a dose of reality. They said:

“Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased.”

Now, Trump’s Bane, CNN’s Jim Acosta is taking Trump to task for making the ludicrous claims to begin with. Check out what Acosta just tweeted:

People responding To Acosta on Twitter were in agreement that the president really put his foot in his mouth this time. Below are screenshots of the best reactions to Acosta’s post:
