Liberals Stunned as CNN’s Jim Acosta Praises Trump’s D-Day Speech
Trump's speech honoring the brave allied fighters praised by leftist news network
President Donald Trump's speech honoring the brave allied fighters on D-Day saw unexpected praise from known anti-Trump reporters, CNN’s Jim Acosta and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
Acosta is a well-known critic of Trump and has clashed with the president many times in the past.
Following Trump's speech, Acosta said;
“This is perhaps the most on-message moment of Donald Trump’s presidency today.
"We were all wondering if he would veer from his remarks, go off of his script but he stayed on script, stayed on message and, I think, rose to the moment."

The CNN White House reporter praised Trump’s remarks that the men who stormed the beach are among the greatest Americans who have ever lived.
“That could not be more of a fact check true,” Acosta said.
“It was really one of those moments that Donald Trump needed to rise to in order to, I think, walk away from the cemetery, walk away from this hallowed ground and have people back at home saying, ‘You know what, no matter what I think about the current president of the United States, he said the right thing at Normandy. He did the right thing at Normandy.’”
Trump “hit all of the right moments” when paying respect to the D-Day heroes, Acosta added.
MSNBC,'s Scarborough echoed Acosta’s thoughts.
“[Trump] delivered what, again, I believe is the strongest speech of his presidency,” Scarborough said.
He also noted it was a “beautiful moment” when Trump acknowledged may of the troops feel the “heroes were the ones that never came back,” but the survivors formed a remarkable generation.
Of course, many liberal viewers of the left-leaning networks were unsurprisingly shocked.
“He would proudly wear the moniker of the face of the Resistance if it were bestowed on him by us, but we won’t do that. No man in the world of journalism has made a mockery of his profession quite like this man,” Bozell and Graham wrote.
Trump even gave an emotional display of gratitude when he hugged 94-year-old World War Two veteran Russell Pickett, who heroicly stormed the beaches of Normandy 75 years ago.
Trump praised Pickett as a 'tough guy,' who was only 19 years old when he was a member of Company A of the 29th Infantry Division, which was selected to be the first wave at Omaha Beach on D-Day in June 1944.
