(PatriotHeadline.Com)- CNN’s Jim Acosta has no shame. Known for making unsubstantiated claims about the president and regularly injecting far-left talking points into press briefings, Acosta chose to interrupt distinguished virus expert Dr. Deborah Birx during the daily coronavirus briefing.
During last Friday’s daily briefing, Birx attempted to give journalists a view of how the World Organization was handling the pandemic, noting that WHO gave bad guidance about how. The virus is transmitted. Birx also referred to bad advice from WHO about whether or not countries should enact travel bans.
“I will remind you that on Feb. 3, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban,” Birx explained to a Daily Caller reporter. “It wasn’t until Jan. 14th that we knew there was human to human transmission,” she continued.
Then, Acosta interrupted without being called upon to ask a question.
“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April, Mr. President you said it was going to go away in April,” Acosta said, referencing comments previously made by the president about his hope that the virus may not spread as easily during the warmer spring weather.

His point was moot. The president hoped the virus may go away and has indicated that there will come a time when the U.S. economy can return to normal. For now, nobody knows when that will happen, and nobody knows what Acosta thinks he’s going to achieve by being so aggressive during the interviews.
Birx was able to get back to the topic being discussed, namely the World Health Organizations and accusations against the group for handling the coronavirus outbreak badly. Senator Rick Scott of Florida has even called for a full congressional investigation into the WHO and whether they helped the Chinese communist government disseminate misinformation about the virus.
