The internet and news stations are full of the conflict between Jim Acosta from CNN and President Trump. Looks like Acosta's days of access to the White house are over. For some reason I do not feel sorry for Acosta.. CNN will just send another to replace him; hopefully someone with more tact and decorum..


Following the disgusting behavior in this morning's White House press conference when a journalist from CNN refused to hand his mic back to a White House aide...

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders has just confirmed CNN's Jim Acosta has had his media credcentials pulled:

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern...

Acosta seems to be way too pushy sometimes. I do not feel sorry for him at all.

Long overdue, imo. Long long overdue. Acosta is a nut, maybe even a bit dangerously aggressive.

CNN's April Ryan has an Anti-Trump acid-tongue that rivals Acosta's. She's just low energy and dumber. Pull her credentials next.

I agree with the President for once. Although I'm not a Trump fan I believe he should have stopped the press conference and turned to the Secret Service Agent to his right and just told him, "Out". His behavior is disgusting and CNN should send him packing. My best,

Trump didn't like Acosta's temerity. Trump got called out for dehumanizing people (in ads) who are migrants and didn't like it. How dare someone question him.

He laughed on the air, when declaring that the Trump Whitehouse had locked him out of a press briefing earlier this year. "I'm trying to get into the press briefing, but they've turned off my access badge, Jake! hahaha"

You haven't been paying attention to the Acosta attacks on Sarah Sanders, President Trump, and even his wife, Melania. Most Presidents (or any other human) wouldn't have put up with Acosta this long.

Acosta has been vicious in his attacks, but because he's press, it's been put up with. There is a line though, and Acosta crossed it when he physically went after the intern. The acrimony between press and admin is not her problem and it should not have spilled over onto her.

He might hate Trump but at least be fake respectful and act like a professional.

Because he is denying free speech and freedom of the press!!!

I can see it coming too.. endless panels on CNN about how Donald "Hitler" Trump has suddenly curtailed freedom of the press.

Same failed playbook, same rabid followers.

727Sky It'd be nice if you would check to see if another thread exists on a subject, before starting your own. In this case Arnie started one before you.

Trump is trampling on Press rights!

All he did was just have an hour and half Q&A with the press and even called on Acosta.

What a fascist, right?

Do these idiots not realize that every time they are rude to Trump and he calls them out, that instead of it turning people against the President, it actually gives him more fans?

These news people are SUCH idiots. They have NO idea that a good portion of the country has been WAITING for someone to say these things to their faces "you're rude"; "I'm not a big fan of yours" etc.

Who ARE these "news" people? Did they start their careers as disgusting people, or did their rise to the top make them that way?

It's what door-to-door salesmen evolved into.

No, that's not the takeaway...
That's the take away of a foreigner who has never approved of anything Trump has ever done.
