Jim Acosta Sells Whopping 30 Books At "Surprise" Signing
Jim Acosta Sells Whopping 30 Books At "Surprise" Signing

<p>Jim Acosta had a "please clap" moment last week, after the <em>CNN</em> White House Correspondent sold just 30 books during an impromptu signing at an Arlington, VA Barnes & Noble, according to the <a href="https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/14/jim-acosta-book-signing/"><em>Daily Caller</em></a>. After tweeting to his <strong>1.25 million surely genuine Twitter followers, </strong>hardly anyone showed up. </p>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en">

<p>According to an employee, Acosta simply called up the store and told them he would be coming. After he arrived, CNN's heckler-in-chief stood behind a counter and signed books for an hour or so. </p>

<p>"It was kind of very quiet — he showed up and signed," the employee told the <em>Caller</em>. "<strong>No customers waiting for him to sign his book," - </strong>he just showed up. </p>

<blockquote>
<p>A manager at the Arlington Barnes & Noble told the Caller that <strong>the store sold “like 30-or-something” copies of Acosta’s book</strong> while he was there. He said the store still has some of Acosta’s books in stock. -<a href="https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/14/jim-acosta-book-signing/"><em>Daily Caller</em></a></p>

<p>Acosta did, however, get some praise...</p>
