CNN anchor Jim Acosta set the internet on fire after dubbing former president Donald Trump “the Mussolini of Mar-a-Lago.” During a segment on CNN Newsroom, Acosta looked into what would have happened if Trump had gotten away with the attempted coup on Jan 6 and blasted Republicans for trying to block any investigation and refusing to even talk about the deadly attack.
Acosta went on to say that Trump’s coup attempt failed and unveiled a new nickname for the former president. “Fortunately, it did not happen. Mike Pence did not go along. Trump failed. The Mussolini of Mar-A-Lago can seize and another breadstick from the buffet down to this club, but he can’t seize our elections, at least not yet. His comments were celebrated across social media:

Jim Acosta referred to him today as The Mussolini of Mar-a-Lago.
