    No one cares about an arrogant POS who bullies women. This is just one of many reasons Acosta should have been banned.

    Acosta should be banned for life. He's not a journalist. He's a left wing activist.

    It's funny that event after event after event like this keeps happening and you consistently get the same answers from either "team".

    One side will forget any other detail of the event as they push Acosta pushing the woman back and using Dems insistence on believing and backing women first.

    The other side will forget any other detail of the event as they push that Trump threw Acosta out for no reason and he is a tyrant trying to purposefully stop the Left Wing media.

    And like always, the two will refuse to discuss the other side.

    In the end, Dems will care about their side and Reps about theirs. Us in the middle though are caring less and less and less about these stupid events as they keep coming up.

    It looks more like a GIF file compressed for faster uploading and not an intentional doctored video. In both videos Acosta can be seen touching the woman. I watched the live version and thought Acosta was the aggressive one. The woman was trying to do her job.

    That's what the left is counting on. They want good people in the middle to back away and accept heir violence. Then the non-violent right is left to complain and fend for itself.

    Then you would have seen that she was first sitting towards the rear of the room. While the bloke was asking his questions, for no obvious reason, she stands up.....right at that moment Donald went on the attack at the journalist. She then was at the front of the room and STRIDENTLY and ASSERTIVELY she moved towards the journo, reached out and across him (she came from his left side, and he had the mic in his right hand) and grabbed the mic while he was still holding it. He briefly brushes her outstretched arm, she releases whatever grip she had of the mike, and drops to her haunches. The aggressor was at all time the intern, no doubt feeling a sense of self importance inspired by the abuse being hurled by Donald. Appalling. Of indirect relevance, was he to know that she was an intern?

    You are accusing the guy of bullying based on a doctored video, a faked video. You are saying that a reporter should be banned based on a lie.
    That is Soviet Union or Third world thinking and behavior.

    I support a free press. Acost did not push the lady. BUT, Acosta got to ask his question, at that point he should have sat down. The problem he had was that the second question he asked was not a follow up, it was an entirely different subject. If it was a follow up question, then yes he was correct in holding the mic, but he wasn’t because he switched to the Mueller investigation.

    Like Trump or hate him. Like Acosta or hate him. Its all thru a political lens. BUT, there has to be some level of decorum in the process. Acosta cant accuse Trump if being a bully, and then try to bully his way past other reporters After his question was asked.

    He blatantly disobeyed White House Press regulations, so why would it matter if a doctored video was used? The unedited footage is all that is required to justify that dirty scumbag activist posing as a journalist being kicked out of the White House where he should never have been allowed near in the first place, I mean the fact that CNN placed him there is one big hilarious JOKE! Seriously, was he really the best that CNN had to offer? :roflol:

    First let me say, I have seen the video uncut and I don't believe Acosta's contact with the intern rose anywhere near the description of "hands on" that I have heard coming out of the Whitehouse.

    That said...

    Acosta is clearly in the wrong here. He has an obligation to surrender the microphone. The intern was not "the aggressor". It is not possible for the intern to be "the aggressor". She was directed to take the microphone from a journalist who has an agreed to obligation to surrender the microphone. This is part and parcel of how the Whitehouse press briefings have been organized for decades.

    Your press pass does not entitle you to interrupt another question or answer and you give up the mic when directed.
