CNN sued to get they nasty assed so called reporter Acosta back in the White House. When in reality all they needed to do was assign another reporter to the White House. Most real American have little use for Acosta and his egotistical antics.

Perhaps the best solution is Trump just bars Reporters who ask hard questions and throw in those he attacks, add in their respective networks as well
He could not handle 1 reporter, imagine what will happen when a real crisis occurs

Is Acosta the only one asking hard questions?

He has constantly attacked reporters that have asked him tough questions. Acosta is the first one he has kicked out. The other reporters should just refuse to attend his - and the lying Sanders - press confererences. trump craves attention and if there is noone in the room (well except the Faux News grubs) his head will explode.

According to the lying Hackabee Sanders, Acosta was kicked out because he visciously assaulted an unpaid intern. She released a falsified video to prove her point. Did you see how Acosta bashed the intern with the microphone? And afterwards he grabbed her by the *****.

Most real Americans have little use for trump and his egotistical antics. And FFS we are so tired of his daily childish tantrums and his nasty disgusting tweets.

Are you saying Acosta doesn't wipe?

Look, I can't stand Acosta, but Trump & Co. just handed him martyrdom by taking his hard pass. I DO think he was physical (No, not assault but using his larger stature) with the intern and I DO think he needed to let go of the mic THE FIRST TIME she reached for it. I am just not sure taking away his hard pass is the right answer.
That said, there needs to be an answer and perhaps a more elegant one which works to outsmart Acosta, not be punative and put him in the position of being some sort of Norma Rae hero.

Illogical.

Your suggestion is based on emotion not logic. Reporters are supposed to be persistent and ask tough questions. If presidents can threaten to ban them from press conferences, that will hurt their ability to do their job.

Maybe change your name to Emotional1?

I suppose I could say the same about your post.

"nasty assed"
"so-called reporter"
"real American(s)"

All the hallmarks of senseless clutter that's obviously just pro-trump rhetoric.

There's a reason why CNN is at the bottom of the ratings heap.

Reporters should only have one question and a follow up. When someone like Acosta hogs the whole time, he is violating the first and fifth amendment rights of the other news organizations.

Yes they are. What is funny is Sponge Bob Square Pants has more viewers than CNN. NONE of their so call news broadcasts are in the top 25 of cable news, that should tell you something.

I agree that was simply ridiculous, the contact looked incidental to me. Having said that, booting Acosta would be a good thing imo because it is obvious he is simply there to stir up controversy and grandstand. It is already enough that we have to put up with a reality tv star President, last thing we need is reality tv journalism to complete the idiocracy.
