This is exactly how people in CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s crosshairs should respond when getting “Acost”ed by him. 

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) was confronted by Acosta outside the Capitol in Washington D.C. last Saturday, and Brooks wasn’t having any of Acosta schtick.

“I do not do interviews with CNN because I do not trust CNN to be honorable or truthful,” Brooks said, responding to Acosta’s badgering.

Brooks kept repeating that he does “not trust CNN to be honorable or truthful" as Acosta kept trying to ask him a question. The congressman simply unlocked his bicycle and went on his way, leaving Acosta in his dust.

Take a look:

Sorry, not sorry, but that is exactly what an ambulance chasing, click-baiter like Acosta deserves. He made his bed during the Trump administration, now he has to deal with Republicans not wanting to talk to him — priceless.
