He was Mic Hogging.... Do you not understand how rude that is when there are other journalists present who want to ask questions also??

He had been warned several times not to hog the microphone!

The Intern was doing her job trying to stop a rude as fuck mic-hogger stalling the fucken conference. Usual standards call for him to have gotten the message by that point and hand it right over.

Oh and Sab this happens in press conferences everywhere, you just don't hear about it because THAT'S NORMAL. Michoggers get kicked out. They did the standard proceedure but the "Trump is Hitler" brigade obviously is so uneducated that have no idea what Michogging is.



So being such a common occurrences you can there example of reporters credentials being cancelled before for this common occurrence,.

If it is really so normal please provide 3 examples of credentials cancellation.

Obama kicked 3 conservative reporters off his plane. It is usually handled quietly by the press secretary simply not admitting them rather than pulling their hard passes, but the result is the same. They can be denied quietly otherwise also. They must be vetted to begin with.

The article you just quoted specifically says they are not aware of any president since the formation of the press court in 1914 that has removed credentials for this. Also a president revoking credential is nowhere close to being in the same dimension as a candidate during an election not allowing 3 reporters in. Funny enough, the closest they can come up is Nixon, so even crooked Nixon did not even get to revoke credentials.

You are missing the point. It makes no difference that Trump did it this way. He can give him the pass back tomorrow. It’s a phony custom. They are still banned all the time without the publicity. It is exactly the same as Obama kicking them off.

I was watching that Press conference when it happened. Acosta had asked his allotted questions and continued to ask questions and would not give up the microphone so real journalists could ask questions. After repeated requests to Acosta by the President and attempts by the young intern to retrieve the microphone, she finally reached for the microphone and Acosta hit her arm and knocked it away. The President turned away like he was leaving and Acosta finally gave up the microphone to the intern. This was when the President said something like CNN should be ashamed to have someone like Acosta as a reporter. Acosta's White House pass was revoked because of him putting his hands on the female intern, not because of his continually asking questions or hogging the microphone.

So you would prefer Trump offer to wrestle visitors to the White House or be related to 11 other presidents?

Referring to the newly appointed acting AG Matt Whitaker, CNN's Abby Phillip asked, “Do you want him to rein in Robert Mueller?”

She should have known that Trump would not answer that question. Therefore, she was just grandstanding like Acosta often does. That is why I think Trump called it a stupid question.

Gotta love all the twisting and struggling supporters have to do to justify unacceptable behavior. All of these reporters had no issue with other presidents and this president have problems with more than just a single reporter... It is not a personality quirk, it is quite plain simply that Trump is f.king up left and right and he does not like to be called on it. The guy is a moron, his whitehouse has been in disarray since day 1 and won’t get any better.
If Apple fires every single black person tomorrow, Tim Cook can get as angry as he wants and call questions stupid but when reporters ask “was this racially motivated”, that’s a justified question, not some kind of “stupid question”. Likewise, Sessions was one of the strongest and most loyal supporters that he had, from day 1!, before Lindsey grahm, Christie, Ted Cruz and the rest of the scum that now are trump lovers, Session was there for him. The only thing that he can possibly complain is the recusal and frankly that is the only thing honorable Session has done in his stupid, existence. It is obvious than when he gets fired for that, reporters will pounce on this line of inquiry. Specially when Session’s replacement is a nobody who is not part of the traditional line of succession and has voiced prior suggestions of how to extinguish Muller’s inquiry.
Trump is a terrified little kitty, and Muller laser focused. Maybe Trump is innocent on the Russia thing although I doubt it, too many people around him are deep to their necks and have already confessed to various crimes already. Trump is 100% guilty of various types of frauds, of that I have no doubt.

I tried to bold all the things that were simply unsubstantiated biased propaganda without any basis in fact but they just ran into one another. We get it. You accept media propaganda unquestionably and have no need to back it up with facts. :)

:lol:
That was a nothing incident, much like in Canada when the opposition accused the PM of elbowing some woman. Drama.

A question is only stupid if you don't want to answer it because your answer is going to be even stupider. :knife:

I bolded unsubstantiated claims as well. :lol:

Of course Trump followers do not believe in freedom of the press anyway so only the independents will be swayed.


For a guy who claims to be the smartest person on the internet you seem to be in a self destructive mode. There is not a single intellectual and truthful word in the above post. That in and of itself is nothing too revealing in reading your muses here, but the fact that you actually think people buy it is the most telling and damaging to whatever supposed credibility you had connected to your virtual screen persona.

There is no attack on the first amendment. Acosta still can report the news and CNN is still at the White House. It is no different than if a narcissistic pompous poster would get banned from POFO for breaking rules. Plenty of other forums to chose from.
