CNN's Jim Acosta blatantly lied while appearing on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360°" with host Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night, where he falsely claimed that he never touched the White House aide that tried to take the mic away from him.
CNN selectively edited the footage from the incident and did not show the moment that Acosta touched the aide, and when Acosta lied, Cooper offered no pushback.
"I don't really know who she is, and attempted to take the microphone away from me," Acosta said. "All I can say at that point is that I was trying to hang onto the microphone so I could continue to ask the president questions.""Obviously, you know, I didn't put my hands on her or touch her as they're alleging," Acosta falsely claimed. "And it's just unfortunate that the White House is saying this. You know, we all try to be professionals over there."
