Acosta began his curtailed coverage of the event by taking a selfie and describing the group of social media figures as "Trump's social media allies," who, Acosta makes sure to note, are "in the front rows" while all the White House press are "in the back." 

 

The moment from the event that generated the most buzz online was Karem and Gorka's heated exchange. Acosta, who has consistently portrayed himself as unfairly targeted by the White House, framed the incident as Trump's "allies" attacking a journalist just there to do his job while White House officials stood by in tacit approval.

He linked to a video that only shows Gorka calling Karem a "punk" and social media figures cheering Gorka — one predicting Gorka could kick Karem's "punk a**" — while some of Karem's fellow "real journalists" complain.
