WATCH: CNN’s Acosta, “On January 20th, Trump Goes Back to Being a Crackpot on the Internet”
Late on Friday afternoon, Donald Trump came out to the Rose Garden and gave a press conference. This was the first time that the president addressed the public in nearly eight days. He mostly talked about the COVID-19 vaccine without addressing the fact that the disease is spiking around the country.
Trump, at times, also seemed to be slowly realizing that Joe Biden will be taking the keys to the White House on January 20th. When that time comes, Jim Acosta says that Donald Trump will go back to being just another crackpot on the internet.
The CNN reporter made the comments during a spot with Anderson Cooper. He noted in his report, “He (Trump) was even talking about at some point he’s not going to let this country going into the lockdown, but then proceeded whatever the next administration will do, almost catching himself and acknowledging that Joe Biden will be taking the keys of the oval office on January 20th.”

Acosta continued, “What was sad of what we saw in the Rose Garden, the president did not take questions and he seems to be out there to soothe his damaged ego. He was talking about the situation in New York and the pandemic as if his policies going to have some sort of effect on all of this after January 20th and that’s just not the case.”
The reporter closed the segment saying, “He’s been tweeting, talking about how he won this state and that state. We have to pay attention to those tweets because he’s the president. After January 20th, he just goes back to another crackpot on the Internet.”
