WATCH: Acosta says “comparing Trump to a clown is most definitely an insult to clowns”

During a Saturday segment on CNN, Jim Acosta accused former President Trump of “pretending he’s still the President.”

“Just look at the press conference he held this week, the flags, the columns, that vaguely familiar seal on the podium,” Acosta said. “Of course that’s not the White House. That’s Trump’s golf club at Bedminster but it looks like some kind of POTUS Potemkin village with trump as the pretender in chief. Yes, he seems to be spending his post-presidency playing president.”

“Comparing Trump to a clown is most definitely an insult to clowns,” he continued. “He’s more like one of those mask-hating customers at the grocery store. You’ve seen them. A Karen, or whatever the name would be in trump’s case. you can almost hear him saying ‘I want to talk to the manager about the election.’ ‘I want to talk to the manager of Twitter or Facebook.” And the American people are kind of like the store manager.”
