CNNs Acosta Lost It When Kim K Visited Trump. Heres What He Said When Celebs Visited Obama

President Donald Trump met with Kim Kardashian at the White House to discuss criminal justice reform Wednesday.

After the meeting, Trump tweeted, “Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.”

Trumps meeting with the pop-culture star was not received well by some in the media. CNNs Jim Acosta was particularly upset.

Acosta said before the meeting, “Forget about the fact that Kim Kardashian is here at the White House today and what planet that is anything-resembling-normal on, because its not,” Acosta lamented. “She shouldnt be here talking about prison reform. Its very nice that she is here, but thats not a serious thing to have happened here at the White House.”

But the tone is a sharp change for Acostas reporting. When Obama was in office, the White House reporter regularly gushed about celebrities meeting the former president to advocate for pet projects and causes.

Acosta regularly tweeted about meeting celebrities during the Obama era, interviewing musician John Legend on criminal justice reform in 2015.

Artist @johnlegend to @CNNsotu – “Im going to push the president to get more involved in criminal justice reform.”

“Fox & Friends” lambasted Acosta for the hypocrisy this morning:

In the interview, Acosta gushed to Legend, “If you change your mind about running for office, give CNN the scoop.”

The interview follows a trend of dozens of celebs making multiple trips to the Obama White House.

Seems like a double standard.
