    "Put his hands on an intern"? He did not lay hands on her. Fake news. Fox News claimed he pushed her. Video:

    it is accurate, he brings his arm down, touching her, to push her arm away.

    Acosta is a jerk. Won’t listen, won’t shut up. He’s monopolizing everyone else’s time. Clearly mom never taught him any mannners.

    If that is "unacceptable touching", everybody is guilty of sexual assault every day of their lives.

    Who claimed sexual assault?

    Acosta got to ask a couple questions, Trump said "Next", the girl reached for the mic, Acosta wouldn't give it up.

    If you really look at the video, she touches him first- has her hand over his hand that's holding the mic.

    That's her job, to take the mic and give it to the next person when their turn is over. The mic is not the personal property of the reporters.

    If you really look at the video without TDS, she's just reaching for the mic cuz that's her job. Acosta knows this and uses his left arm to push her arm away from the mic.

    If a Republican did this they would have to make a public apology and resign if they were not immediately fired. The cable news networks would be covering it 24x7 for days until he is fired or resigns.

    A light karate chop to the arm is an accurate description of what happened.

    I'm not saying it was a big deal or that he hurt her, just that it was uncalled for and the media is lying as usual.

    In fact, a reuters reporter on twitter was showing stills of incident and complaining without showing the karate chop.

    I'm surprised Acosta's press pass wasn't suspended a long time ago. Every video I've seen of him he goes on and on when it's clearly time to give up the mic.

    CNN's ratings are in the toilet, however. If they don't go gonzo, they won't have any viewers at all.

    Trump has good taste in interns.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    The incidental contact was just the excuse to ban him.

    https://variety.com/2018/politics/ne...nn-1203022818/

    Trump has previously threatened to pull a reporter’s credentials on the basis of their coverage. In a tweet he sent in May, he wrote that “the Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?”

    During his presidential campaign, his team barred The Washington Post and other outlets from campaign events, typically held in venues that are considered private property or secured under a rental agreement. But the situation is different at the White House, which is government property.

    When Trump broached the idea in May, some media law experts said that such a move would not be legal. “Denying White House press credentials to reporters based on the content of their coverage would violate the First Amendment, as the DC Circuit made clear many years ago in Sherrill v. Knight,” said Theodore Boutrous, a partner at Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher in Los Angeles. The case is a 1977 decision in which the court ruled that when it came to bonafide journalists covering the White House, that “access not be denied arbitrarily or for less than compelling reasons,” including the content of their coverage.
    From a previous time Trump tried to ban a CNN reporter:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44963659

    CNN condemned the ban as "retaliatory" and "not indicative of an open and free press". The White House Correspondents Association called it "wrongheaded, and weak".

    Traditional rival Fox News also attacked the ban.

    "We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press,
    " network president Jay Wallace said in a statement.

    He doesn't have to ban them for content.

    How about he ban them for refusing to follow protocol?

    You get a question, and a follow-up. Next guy's turn. Acosta breaks this protocol like, every time.

    the court made no determination on what would constitute arbitrary or less than compelling reason and deferred that determination to the secret service. They could easily show his escalating shameful behavior over the past 2 years and that would rise to a compelling reason.

    I hope he takes it to court. Another drama show to watch.

    Still waiting for you to edit your #2 post.

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    THis should have happened 2 months ago. If CNN had a shred of integrity, they would have pulled him off the beat when it became obvious the reporter's relationship to the subject became the story. But they're looking for ratings. They were probably hoping that Acosta and Trump would come to blows.

    I'm glad this is finally ending.
