CNN reporter Jim Acosta recently went to the local Barnes & Noble in Arlington, Virginia to sell and sign some of his books.
Titled, “The Enemy of The People, A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America,” the book is about Acosta’s time in the White House Press room, “fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth.”
However, there was a slight problem for Jim Acosta that day. Only about 30 people showed up to get their books signed during the hour he was there. An employee told the Daily Caller that there were “no customers waiting for him to sign his book.”
As the employee explained, the signing wasn’t planned. Acosta simply called ahead to tell the store he was coming. The store manager estimates that only around 30 of Acosta’s books were sold. The way Trending politics put it, the signing seemed to “fail miserably for the CNN host.”
Many people took to Twitter to make fun of Jim Acosta for the lack of enthusiasm for his book. Even Tucker Carlson talked about it on his Fox News show. Dan Bongino joined Carlson in roasting Acosta,
“We are living in peak Acosta right now. This is peak Jim Acosta… the book is literally about Jim Acosta and his experiences with Donald Trump.”
It isn’t surprising that nobody wanted to buy Acosta’s book because most of what Acosta did in the White House was lie and strong-arm microphones away from female White House aides. Many people don’t have such a fond memory of Acosta and his antics and that’s represented in the low numbers of people who bought his book.
