I posted this thread in this particular forum because this goes right to the heart of a major problem on the horizon and that's Trump's misuse of power in controlling the freedom of the press, violation of the 2nd Amendment and abuse of power. This is stuff that banana republic dictators do. This is what happened in El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and nearly every other dictatorship around the world. This is not acceptable. April Ryan has been a White House correspondent for four presidencies, nearly 20 years in Washington, D.C., and bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks. Trump has created such contempt for April Ryan and Jim Acosta that they each had to hire private security guards and they are not private security paid for by the US government like Sarah Sanders.

Trump calls April Ryan a 'loser,' threatens to revoke more press credentials


President Trump on Friday suggested he could pull press credentials from other reporters who don't show him "respect."

The comments come two days after the president suspended the press pass of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta after a contentious exchange during a news conference.

"I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man," Trump said.

Asked how long Acosta's credentials will be suspended, the president replied: "As far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision. But it could be others also"

Trump also went after April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks as a "loser" who "doesn't know what the hell she is doing."

At this point all Trump is doing is projecting his own inadequacies.

The left is absolutely outraged that President Trump does not have adversarial reporters wiretapped, their computers seized and imprisoned as President Obama did.

Every "reporter" who proactively makes themselves and their appearance at WH press conferences on behalf of the Democratic Party or their own personal views should be permanently banned.

President Trump can be called a fool for even allowing anyone from CNN and NBC/MSNBC from asking any questions because they are not questions. They are mini attack speeches for the Democrats.

John Adams and Abraham Lincoln jailed reporters so Trump by comparison, is tame.

Liberals must have forgotten what they learned in their U.S History class. Throughout our long history the press has many times been used as a weapon against the American people.

Thats just stupid. This is not a 'misuse of power' or harming the freedom of the press, nor is it what happens 'in El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and nearly every other dictatorship around the world.' It couldnt be more obvious that you simply dont know WTF you are talking about.

Jim Acosta is a martyr that was trying to egg on a North Korean dictator during a historic summit. Now that's irresponsible!

You shouldn't really conflate those two amazing presidents with Trump. Journalists have angered presidents from the earliest days of America’s founding. Abraham Lincoln did not imprison anyone who simply disagreed with him. He ordered the arrests of those he considered threats. A few of them were printing information in their papers that the Union wanted to be kept secret like troop movements. The lowest estimate is 14,000 arrests. However, some of the people arrested were kindly asked to move to Canada, and very few were kept the length of the war. Those still in prison at the end of the war were given a halfhearted apology and released. Over a quarter of those arrested were Confederates, either those guilty of insurrection, spying, or sabotage, or trying to rejoin the insurrection. Not all of the last group were guilty. Some certainly were simply trying to get back to their families. Another 40% were from the border states, either accused or suspected of insurrection or fomenting it. Again, many certainly were innocent. But it does tell us of Lincoln's reasoning, for which he was defiant.

As far as John Adams goes, during Jefferson’s campaign against John Adams, both men used the press to levy insults at each other. Jefferson-allied papers accused President Adams of being a hermaphrodite and a hypocrite, while Adams’ camp attacked Jefferson’s racial heritage, accusing him of being “the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father” as well as an atheist and libertine.

See, dirty politics isn't something Trump invented.

In all honesty, the President could have handled that situation better, but a lot of us don't handle it well when we are being aggressively and maliciously challenged and/or attacked. And yes, these incompetent and inappropriate reporters do use White House press conferences and briefings not to get information as they are intended, but to attack the President. Asking tough questions is fine. That is their job. But to pretend to ask questions that are not questions at all but hateful little speeches is so unprofessional, so contemptible, so wrong I don't blame the President or Sarah or anybody else from expressing anger and disgust. And no reporter engaging in that kind of activity should have White House press credentials.

He should definitely continue to heap scorn and ridicule on posts like yours here.
