Acosta says he was also tough on Obama

Acosta said on Kimmel's show that he was just as tough on Obama as he is on Trump.

OK, he was on a supposed comedy show so maybe he was joking?  If not, here is a memorable "tough" question that Acosta asked Obama:


"I wanted to ask you (Obama) about what some people are calling 'your best week ever' last week," Acosta said to Obama at the time. "You had two Supreme Court decisions supportive of the Affordable Care Act and of gay rights. You also delivered a speech down in Charleston that was pretty warmly received. It seems that you've built up some political capital for the remaining months of your presidency. I'm curious how you want to use it? What hard things do you want to tackle at this point?"
