When it comes to his tweets, Acosta remains unapologetic.

“Oh, goodness, no. I mean, come on,” he said. “I mean, if you put my tweets up against the president’s, you know, they might be confused with tweets issued by your local church.”

“I think you know, this is a different kind of president, Hugh,” Acosta continued. “We’re going to have a different kind of playbook when it comes to covering the president. That means at times, you know, I bring a little attitude to what I do on a daily basis.”
