I’m guessing the White House is seriously considering revoking CNN’s Jim Acosta’s press pass after this if they weren’t already. On Wednesday, Acosta demonstrated just how rude he actually is by not giving back the floor for others in the press to ask question after standing off with President Donald Trump over the migrant caravans head to our border, and his depiction of them as an “invasion.” Trump said that CNN should be ashamed to have him working for them and that Acosta was a “rude, terrible person.”
Acosta asked, “Why did you characterize it as such?” referring to the migrant caravans.
“Because I consider it an invasion,” Trump replied. “You and I have a difference of opinion.”
“Do you think that you demonized immigrants?” Acosta shot back.
“Not at all, no – not at all,” Trump said. “I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally. You know, they have to come in Jim through a process. And I want people to come in, and we need the people.”
Acosta then questioned Trump’s ad that CNN refused to air about the migrants coming to America to enter illegally and referred to “migrants climbing over walls and so-on.”
“They weren’t actors,” said Trump.
Finally, after Acosta would not relent and sit down, Trump told him, “Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better.”
Acosta continued to take jabs and when he wouldn’t sit down, a White House aide came to attempt to take his microphone from him.

That’s when Trump lit into him and spanked him on national television.
“You know, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN,” adding “The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.”
NBC’s Peter Alexander attempted to defend Acosta. That was probably the wrong move as he got spanked too.
“Well I’m not a big fan of yours either, to be honest,” the president said. “You aren’t the best.”
I do think the White House needs to simply revoked his press pass to the White House and tell CNN if they can’t bring in someone who can be respectful, even if they disagree, that they won’t issue anymore press passes to the White House for CNN.
As for CNN, the network that has been falsifying news for decades issued a statement saying that Trump’s “attacks” “have gone too far.”
According to CNN, “They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American.”
“A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere,” added the network.
Referring to our Republic as a democracy is disturbingly un-American. The Trump administration is not telling CNN what to write. They are thinking of the Obama administration. They were all to happy to be state-controlled media, and they still are. They are just pitching a temper tantrum now because they aren’t getting their way and the president and his administration aren’t taking their bait.
