[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta joined Chris Cuomo on Friday night to condemn President Trump's latest thoughts on re-opening, claiming Trump was operating outside of reality and is determined to reopen regardless of "whatever the hell happens."
However, Acosta himself had some problems with the reality of the situation. After Cuomo lamented the lack of any coherent plan, Acosta observed, "People want to go to the beach and enjoy Memorial Day weekend. We just don't live in that world anymore." Of course, people are going to the beach in high numbers and the public health situation has not dramatically worsened as feared.
