Wait, are you all actually trying to argue that you want a President to be able to legally ban press that he considers too critical? Or is this just a Trump thing where you like him and don't like CNN and want to stick it to the left so you will support something you don't actually agree with?


It's about Acostas behavior, not his political stance. Most of the room is hostile towards Trump. Pay attention.

Nah, I'm good with getting rid of dipsh!ts who get physical with female interns and act like a$$holes in general.  We can view these on a case by case basis, not sure why that would be a difficult concept for somebody to understand.

what if we accused him of assaulting her in high school instead?

Ironically that would be more believable to those of you defending Acosta.
As proven by your previous behavior.

They have a term for guys like you mike and falcon.

Guess what it is!

Are you one of the posters in this thread that admitted this is BS, but you claim a Lib that saw a Con do the same thing would cry assault, so you are going to cry assault to stick it to the left? If so, then that kind of ends the discussion. But then, if you actually believe Acosta got physical with that lady, that kind of ends the discussion as well.

Of course it wasn't physical, Acosta works for CNN, they hold liberal protections.

Hold on, are you actually defending the right of anyone who holds a WH pass to behave in any manner they see fit and disrupt the exchange of ideas between the President and the people.  Or is this just a Trump thing where you don't like him and like CNN and want to stick it to the right so you will support something you don't actually agree with?

Agree here.  Acosta has been egging this on for a while now.   This wasn't a result of just this one "instance".

 

2/3rd's of the media members in those briefings are critical of Trump.

The left keeps hinging all their righteous indignation on complete nutjobs or liars.  Acosta, Blasey Ford, Avanatti, and saying, "it's the principle".

Maybe if the people being asked the questions would stop creating "alternative facts" the press conferences would go a little more smoothly and there wouldn't be the need for as many follow up questions.

White House backs down from legal fight, restores Jim Acosta's press pass

 

The White House on Monday said that CNN correspondent Jim Acosta's press pass has been "restored," bowing to days of pressure and a federal lawsuit against the administration.

CNN signaled that it would drop the ongoing litigation over Acosta's access to the White House.

 

"Today the White House fully restored Jim Acosta's press pass. As a result, our lawsuit is no longer necessary," the network said in a statement. "We look forward to continuing to cover the White House."
Monday afternoon's announcement, what the White House called a "final determination," was an abrupt shift from the administration's earlier positions.

LMAO. Acosta won and Trump lost.

The right has been going down in defeat every single day since the mid term elections. Oh look at the breaking news, Dems pick up another house seat in a deep red district to push it to near 40 gains. Most pickups by the Dems since 1974. And the Senate map is very blue friendly in 2020 unlike in 2018 when it was very red friendly.

No wonder Orange has been freaking out the last two weeks on a new level of derangement even for him.

Except that history says the Dems should have taken both the House AND Senate.  Your side has been talking BLUE WAVE for the last two years, yet it never materialized.  Anything short of the taking both houses is an abject failure - by the standards YOUR side set up.  I get the backtracking, though.  Gotta try and fake it look good.

While people near to/associate with Trump seem to stay alive much better than those around the Clintons, if I am Acosta at this point I am keenly aware of the fact that Trump is basically giving Saudi a freeby on this reporters murder.....   :ninja:
