CNN went too far, but they never expected Trump’s swift reaction.
Since the beginning of the Trump administration, you could count on CNN to act unprofessionally.
Perhaps the worst has been Jim Acosta. But yesterday, his shocking behavior reached new lows.
President Trump gave an encouraging presser, signaling his intentions of working with Congress and the Democrats in the House.
That was followed by Acosta’s rude, and confrontational attitude. Trump tried to move on to a less-pathetic reporter, but Acosta kept talking. A White House staffer even went to take the mic from the man.
But Acosta pulled back, even pushing the young woman away.
Well that, as they say, was the last straw.
Hours after a harsh on-air confrontation between the President of the United States and Jim Acosta, the CNN reporter has been “suspended” from the White House “until further notice.”
We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video. pic.twitter.com/T8X1Ng912y

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” Sanders said in a statement this evening. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable.”
The behavior of CNN reporters like Jim Acosta toward this administration has become increasingly unprofessional and dishonest.
SHARE if you think Trump was right to kick CNN out of the White House!
Most Americans feel that CNN no longer reports the news, but spreads propaganda and lies.
Their ratings reflect that much.
But the behavior of Acosta during that presser crosses the line in a whole new way. He was rude and dismissive of the president. When a young White House staffer—a woman—tried to take the mic, he rudely pushed her away.
He denies it, but the video clearly shows his unacceptable behavior.
Any other outlet would have fired him for this. But CNN—the fake news leader—will not.
At the very least, he should lose his White House credentials. Trump and his staff did the right thing in punishing this “reporter.”
CNN continues to disgrace our country and the office of the president. Nobody is willing to call them out on it—accept Trump himself.
Do you support Trump for kicking CNN out of the White House? Then SHARE this bombshell with everyone!
