He didn't even ask a question - he just prattled on about his opinions, stating them as facts.
Acosta is a complete ass hat and has no business being in a press room.

He deserved it.

I would give anything to go back to the days when reporters cared about reporting the news, not "being" the news.

Maybe the president should pull the press passes of anyone who asks him uncomfortable questions?

That’ll show the press to report anything critical of the government. Where are my real patriots at?


He's asked questions like that all the time.

Acosta should have lost his press pass after the NK incident.

Try again.

And so the Trump cultists celebrate as freedom of the press is destroyed.

So long as your guy is the fascist, right, that's fine.

Thanks for the link.
I take back my snark about caring.

Don't know if it is also mentioned in that thread, but apart from removal of frames to make the hand movement look quick and more aggressive? Acosta says "excuse me mam" clearly and loudly in the original footage. That specific part of audio was also deleted in Sarah Sanders officially shared clip from infowars.

This is an administration that might be imagined by Orwell.
The Propaganda you are served no longer pretends to be accurate, they have reached a point where they are comfortable releasing doctored footage and not retracting it once proven because they know Trump supporters will support and advocate for it regardless.

This is something minor to a Trump Supporter now. Something that can be dismissed for the greater agenda. But when a President is emboldened once by supporters and not challenged for outright Propaganda? It grows. It would be wise if the right wing did not wait for when a Democrat is in office to start caring about truth, because like all things, it is two steps forward and one back. Abandon the expectation that this is not OK for any President or their spokespeople now and you will not have any credibility to apply the necessary standard once someone you disagree with is in office.

Once upon a time there was a little known forum on the internet with the universal motto "Deny Ignorance" and it's members brought that standard to bare upon all people in power regardless of party.

It was a noble cause at the time and it set that forum apart from cloud of misinformation being peddled on the internet.


He says pardon me ma'am to the intern, that appears to be trying to stop him, but still disregards her and continues with his rant. Seems to be excuse I'm not finished let me finish, in the context, not excuse me for what I did.


OK.

Why again was that audio selectively deleted from Sarah Sanders doctored version she released?

Your posts lack substance, links, ideas or anything else worth reading. It is like a nonsense parade.
Honestly, hit posts in thread on your own post.

I tried to find something worth taking seriously, but wow, I haven't seen someone so pridefuly an idiot in a long while.

You don't care about Freedom of the Press. All you know is, hate Trump. The one acting like a cultist is you. I bet you were OK with it when Obama did this same thing and more. You are not just the pot calling kettle black, you are the pot looking in the mirror.



"You are in MY HOUSE... it's not respectful when....you are not going to get a response if you keep interr... Shame one you, you shouldn't be doing this. Can you escort this person out."



This guy deserved the boot just like Jim Acosta did.

A few more examples of Obama's treatment of the press.

“The way the president’s availability to the press has shrunk in the last two years is a disgrace,” said ABC News White House reporter Ann Compton, who has covered every president back to Gerald R. Ford. This is different from every president I covered. This White House goes to extreme lengths to keep the press away.” -- Politico

www.politico.com...

"On Wednesday, while Obama met with donors from the House Majority PAC, the reporters were not even told where the meeting was taking place. The press corps has rallied together in recent months to protest restrictions on White House access, but despite their demands they continue to be locked out of major events in and out of the Oval Office.The White House Correspondents Association filed a formal complaint with press secretary Josh Earnest on Tuesday......" ---huffpost

www.huffingtonpost.com...

"Obama Boots Reporters From Conservative Papers while nonpolitical publications like Glamour and Jet magazines remained on board, at times even eliminated from the plane's traveling press were the Washington Times, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News." -- DiogenesMiddleFinger --Summary of below link.

"Obama Boots Reporters From Conservative Papers" --ABC news

WOW...Reality disconnect.

How quaint that Pres. Obama cut back on his regular press briefings for a few weeks.

Trump has VIRTUALLY NEVER held a press conference.

Jesus what is wrong with your reality?

President Obama in his first two years in office?
17 Press Conferences.


During his last two years in office when you complained he didn't give enough press conferences? 19

Trump in his first two years?

I've been away from ATS way too long..What has happened to the open minded, free thinkers on this site. President Trump is a great President but he's not GOD and he has faults. Pretending he's unable to do no wrong is asinine

It's become tribal where objectivity and integrity has been subordinated to team politics.
Identity politics mission is to convince supporters they are defending themselves, their own identity, and their elected official who likely couldn't give a crap, is a proxy for their deepest self.

Facts don't matter in that scenario. Folks fight dirty and to the death when their very own self identity is threatened.

That is what Trump appeals to and counts on. Our lizard brains and identity politics on steroids.

It's an old tactic in other failed nations, it's new here in the new world.

This is where we find out if the American Experiment is as resilient as we promised ourselves it was.

Oh he has plenty of faults. Not putting up with baiting propoganda questions isnt one of them. Acosta should have been ousted long ago. He just puts on these performances and Trump puts up with him. This is how trump rolls. He gives people a chance...then another...then another. Then one day he says...thats it. He just isnt going to learn...hes fired.

If anything I fault him for being too tolerant of these mockingbird Operatives and this deep state garbage in general.

I think he might be done with it though. He tried playing nice giving the left a chance to get their act together and start working for the betterment of the country. Of course they along with the forces behind the curtain chose to be arrogant fools and try and sabotage this recovery. So we are where we are. I dont think Trump is going to play nice anymore. In fact I dont think conservatives in general are going to play nice anymore. So there you have it.

That's actually an interesting analysis. I have no concerns with "team politics" if one is simply agreeing with a viewpoint of another poster if it was an objective viewpoint. Where I find it concerning is when "team politics" becomes, agreeing no matter the facts because i cannot disagree with "my team".

Not really. Its more about being pro american or pro communist. People didnt vote for Trump because he was a republican. People voted for him because he wanted to turn the country around. he wasnt a communist....he wasnt a neocon....he wasnt a globalist.....he wasnt illuminati or from any of there recruiting centers....he wasnt CIA etc. etc.

So yeah...things are divided here because there are a lot of pro americans on this sight and Trump is the first president who is pro american we have had since Reagan. You hate Trump....want to blame someone?....blame yourself.

Whereupon he immediately calls his chief of staff into his office and begs him to fire someone for him while he cowers in his office with the door locked. EVERY TIME.



Of course they along with the forces behind the curtain chose to be arrogant fools and try and sabotage this recovery.


you mean this recovery? after the last GOP POTUS effed up our economy?
That there in the lower right hand corner is Trump's contribution, which basically consists of momentum from the last guy, I think he was Dem. He might have even been black.








I dont think Trump is going to play nice anymore.


Oh no, is he going to tweet a lot?

No doubt! He was as "American" as it gets. Born on 3rd base and jumping up and down bragging about how he hit a triple.
Born and bred spoiled brat, cowers at real confrontation, admires despots and bristles at anyone that doesn't kiss his ass.

Sure, he is American, just the worst of what America produces.

Trump was born of the financial crisis.

Guys like him know what to do. Cash out and blame immigrants and poor people.
