President Trump is tangling with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.
Tonight the White House press secretary tweeted an accusation that Acosta “accosted” an intern who tried to grab the microphone from him. As a result the White House has revoked the reporter’s press access and stripped him of his credentials.
In a White House news conference today, Trump cut off a question from Acosta and said, “That’s enough.”
He said CNN should be ashamed and called Acosta a “rude, terrible person.”
Acosta had been asking a series of questions about whether Trump has been demonizing illegal immigrants by calling their caravan an “invasion.” Trump said, “It is an invasion.”
That’s when things spun out of control…

…over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question. The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration
