Imagine being Jim Acosta today, thinking you’ve made a triumphant return to the White House, solidifying your reign as nation’s most bloviated anal wipe. Only to have your pompous aspirations dashed (see Sarah Sanders Criticizes Jim Acosta in Fox News Appearance and WATCH: Donald Trump is Ready to Treat Jim Acosta Like a Kindergartner). Because according to the White House, Jim Acosta’s douchey dalliances have an expiration date, coming soon. Then the greatest journalist who has ever put his own lips to his own image is back on the street.
After CNN won a temporary restraining order on Friday, forcing the White House to restore his press pass for 14 days, White House officials sent Acosta a letter stating that his pass is set to be suspended again once the restraining order expires.
From the looks of the letter, the W.H. is trying to establish a paper trail that will empower the administration to boot Acosta again at the end of the month.
CNN responded with this statement on Sunday: “The White House is continuing to violate the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution. These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President.”
And then Acosta can report from outside. We have exclusive footage:
A federal judge just ruled that the White House has to reinstate @Acosta's credentials.
I guess he can come inside now… pic.twitter.com/0VPJCcV9ad

Cat and mouse was never as entertaining as this.
So as you sit around the table on Thursday giving thanks, remember to give thanks for Jim Acosta. For the courage and bravery in the face of adversity. For the willingness to be Jim Acosta every day. Finally, thank the God Almighty that you, the fine person reading this post, are not Jim Acosta.
