Let's see what CNN won't show. Why won't they show this? Fake News maybe? Hey SJW's here's a perp---I'm sure you'll be here any minute to call this bully out, right? Right? Hello?


That footage you are showing has been deliberately sped up for effect. It has been sped up to make it appear like a chop.

See Fox News reporting showing the real time speed.

From 1:44




Get your vision checked , quick....


I don't need to. The editing was subtle but designed to give the impression of an exaggerated chop.

See following frame by frame. It show the edit and the video out of synch.

The truth? Acosta kept trying to misrepresent Trump's statements by claiming the Caravan wasn't an invasion because it wasn't close enough to our borders yet? He was making a ridiculous statement (not asking an actual question). The Caravan is an invasion, including the multitude of additional caravans that have sprung up as well. They are foreign nationals funded & logistically supported by America's greatest enemies (like Venezuela, Cuba, etc)

Besides, if the media is so interested in what he has to say perhaps they should stop spending an absolutely unprecedented & very telling a whopping/extreme 95% of negative press coverage

And you don't think that is bias? He did the right thing, the only way to fight fake news is to expose them as the frauds they are. The media was not denied access to the WH or Trump, only one single individual who's right to publish freely was not infringed - he merely has to go to the WH like the rest of us - with an escort & permission.

I actually believe this invasion should justify a military response against Cuba/Venezuela to send their open border socialist tools a clear message: piss off, keep your leftist garbage out of our country

If the caravan is in fact an invasion, why haven't Trump and Co. made a single peep about it now that the midterms are done? I mean, a marauding invasion force doesn't suddenly become less of a threat overnight, right?

I would be willing to stipulate the veracity of either video. It really doesn't matter. Myself, the difference -- if it exists -- is so minimal as to be inconsequential. The fact is that he made a downward motion -- and contact -- to block her from taking the microphone.

Simple. No need to complicate things.

Every time someone violates your nation's sovereignty, it is an invasion. Especially when failed states like Venezuela start funding and organizing it

Sure, he was playing it up some for the Mid Terms. What do the Dems call the BS Kavanaugh hearings? That was political theater, just like this Russia BS. Just like this Caravan rhetoric. You know and I know it

But the fact is that the enemies of America are organizing these. Why? Who knows. Maybe to send food home so they don't have to eat dogs and cats thanks to failed socialists bankrupting the country and enriching themselves at everyone else's expense.

All I know is that I can't see positively how these caravans help America, so we have no use for them. Everyone wants to come here. If we let just anyone in, what would be the point?

So this Acosta guy is rude, obnoxious, got a big mouth, and doesn’t take crap from no one....he’s just like our president, except he’s not orange and he’s got bigger hands!

I say he’s got a real shot at the presidency. One thing he needs to work on though, is working the hand a little lower — you know, instead of the elbow, he needs to go to the kitty area.

Except he is fake as the rest of those Hollywood types

He has no moral composition other than exploiting the nation's divisions for his own ratings. He knows he can whip the left into a frenzy over the most insignificant issues (like 99% of the stuff you all whine a bout) and he uses you like Dems have always used their "constituents"

Aaaaaannndddd.. how is this any different than what Trump does with his conservative base?

Nice deflection though from the fact that Trump is an a-hole with a big mouth who loves to grab women’s you-know-whats, and sleeps with hookers while his wife is taking care of their newborn baby - great moral composition right there. And you guys are just okey-dokey with it.

The main reason the media has been on Trump's A$$ is clearly because...

of his ignorance, bigotry statements, numerous lies, numerous contradictions, questionable business practices, unprecedented firings, hate speech, bullying and name calling, his numerous allegations of sexual misconduct with women, his praise of dictators, his dangerous rhetoric and ridiculous tweets, his insults of our allies, his do nothing attitude about the current common occurrence of mass shootings, his conflicting business relationship with Saudi Arabia, his previous denials of Russia influencing our elections, his refusal to present his tax return which every president has done before him, his refusal to take responsibility for anything he says, his claim of being a nationalist and his notable support from white racist organizations ...the list can go on and on.

Be honest with me, has any previous president come close to this? This is the President of the United States, the leader of the free world. He's not a guy sitting in a bar just yacking away about politics who doesn't have to worry about anything coming out of his mouth!!! You better believe the media should be on this idiots back. The medias main job is to expose lies and corruption in government. The media failed to expose the lies of the Iraq War and they shouldn't fail to expose a president who at every turn, day in and day out, causes his own media attention. He's a textbook narcissist if you haven't figured it out yet. He loves attention, is thin skinned, lack temperament and wants everyone to love and worship him. If you had a friend like this you wouldn't want to hang around with him! Trump is mentally incompetent to be president.

If he starts a war and your son or daughter is put into harms way because of his dangerous and ignorant rhetoric, it's too late for them and the rest of the country. Stop blaming the media and regurgitating everything that comes out of this idiots mouth. He's a total disgrace to America's character and values and all Americans should realize this.

a reply to: WeRpeons


his ignorance


What ignorance are you referring to? A specific example, please.


bigotry statements


What bigotry? Our borders aren't open. Calling illegal aliens criminals for breaking our laws is not bigotry - it is reality.


numerous lies


What lies? Again, this President has kept every campaign promise he made (or at least made the effort to)


questionable business practices


Such as? Making money and trying to keep as much of that money as possible by not giving handouts to the welfare handout collecting Government?


unprecedented firings


Who was unprecedented? Comey? Standard practice for President to replace the FBI director. Further, it is his Constitutional right to manage the Executive branch in any way he sees fit - including firing disruptive or otherwise subversive individuals. Every executive branch employee is there to ensure the President can carry out his mission of enforcing and executing the laws of the Union. Like it or not, ABC agency employees are the President's employees to fire and order around. They work for him.


hate speech


No such thing as hate speech in the United States. That is an anti-freedom argument made by socialist tools. The position of Americans is (and will continue to be) always more freedom, never less. There is no right not to be offended. There is a right to speak freely. More rights, not less. Arguing against Constitutional Rights is a losing battle, 10/10 times.


bullying and name calling


AKA This President fights back. He doesn't care what the self-important "media" does because he doesn't need them. He takes his message directly to the American people, no filter required.


his numerous allegations of sexual misconduct with women


Mere allegations are meaningless. Especially where disgusting liars like Gloria Allred, Lanny Davis and Michael Avenatti are concerned. No evidence was presented proving a single allegation was true. And after what we saw with Kavanaugh, a sexual assault allegations means precisely #### at this point in time unless there is actual evidence to go along with it. That's just how it is. Due process and all that, surely you still believe in that right? Presumptive innocence, right? Right?


his praise of dictators


Like Obama crying for poor wittle dead Fidel? I celebrated when Castro's worthless commie self kicked off. You don't cry over spilled communist - you celebrate it.


his insults of our allies


They aren't "our" allies. They may be your allies, but they spied on our campaign and our people. As far as I'm concerned, those States are just as much enemies of the American State and People as the domestic agitators.


his do nothing attitude about the current common occurrence of mass shootings


Wrong, wrong, wrong. He already proposed many solutions, arming teachers, permitting CC in schools, posting paid armed guards. Various police agencies have also found great solutions: training, arming and swearing in Citizens to defend the schools.

Guns aren't going anywhere. It is a Constitutional right. The only solution to violence is to arm yourself to prevent it. Laws are only there to punish specific criminal acts (like using a gun to kill someone). They do not stop crime. They do not prevent crime. They were never intended to.

Guns are designed to prevent crime. They are effective at it too.

If you are worried about violence, arm yourself. If you're only worried about "gun violence" then get a clue and a grip because there are far more common causes of death in this country. Guns aren't the problem, gun free zones are the problem. Criminals will always carry a gun when they feel like it. Criminals will always use that gun for their evil vile criminal plots and conspiracies. No law will ever change that.

The solution is making soft targets into hard targets. Yes, it requires work. But all freedom requires effort. No one is required to give you your freedoms - the Constitutional merely prohibits the government from infringing upon your rights, it does not say the government must facilitate or provide you with those rights - they aren't their's to provide. They are our's to take.


his conflicting business relationship with Saudi Arabia


He isn't in the arms business. Every country wants American weapons - they're the best of the best, like everything else we do. The Saudi's got lucky, and landed a great arms deal. Saudis are responsible for what they do with the weapons, not us. It is just a business transaction. Nothing more nothing less.


his previous denials of Russia influencing our elections


It isn't just him, I also deny this. There is no proof any such "influence" happened. I haven't seen a shred of evidence presented to the contrary. Nothing but a house of cards. Simply present some of that evidence and I'll shut up. Otherwise, the defacto position is you're wrong here.


his refusal to present his tax return which every president has done before him


Yawn. More lies from you. Every President has not presented their tax return. Until the traitorous scum of the early 20th century, there was no concept of a "tax return" or an income tax period. Or have you actually read the Constitution? You realize it, by specific wording, prevents a direct and unapportioned tax on our services exchanged for fiat currency right? So save it. Anyone who can get away with keeping more of their own money deserves praise. Government doesn't need or deserve any more handouts from us. It can't handle itself as anything even resembling a responsible adult.


his refusal to take responsibility for anything he says


There's no responsibility to take. Free speech is free speech is free speech is free speech is free speech. There are no if's and's or but's about it. He says it publicly and without subterfuge: THAT is taking responsibility (ie: OWNING what you say)


his claim of being a nationalist


Again, your point? I'm a nationalist too. A nationalist stands for their own country and their own people, not someone else's country or someone else's people. We're Americans in America. We stand for other Americans in America. I care about Americans and America first. And if by some miracle any "care" is left over, then they can have it. Until then, we must take care of our country and our own people.

American's didn't form & permit a government to exist to take care of the rest of the World. We did it..well here, I'll let the DOI explain that.


all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


^THAT is why government exists. Nothing more nothing less.

notable support from white racist organizations


As opposed to what? He can't help who supports him. Last I heard, the Dems were NOT denouncing the White/Black racists, radical feminists or socialists/communists who support them? When is the last time a mainstream Democrat denounced ANTIFA scum?

He has denounced political violence, bigotry and racism. I don't know what else you want from him. It would be silly to target only those individuals on the right, since the left is plenty responsible for all those things as well. Why is it you feel that Democrat racists, Democrat bigots and Democrat violence deserve a free pass?

Tell ya what though, we'll start denouncing the idiots on our side when you all start denouncing the same worthless POS' on your own side. That includes socialists, communists, anti-white racists, anti-christian bigots, antifa etc. Always remember, what is good for you is good for us. So don't expect us to do something you won't. Ain't happening, not anymore. I've made that mistake before, but it is Over. Finished.

I won't denounce or criticize another right wing act for any reason until the left fully renouncing political violence and denounces the terrorist group antifa and its socialist/communist apologists. Fair is fair.


Be honest with me, has any previous president come close to this? This is the President of the United States, the leader of the free world.


honestly, NO! No other President HAS come close to Trump. He's kept virtually every campaign promise, went to bat FOR AMERICANS instead of some foreigner somewhere else and has steadfastly defended the Constitution. What more could you ask for? That is the only purpose for government to exist in the first place.

a reply to: JBurns

I would respond to every one of my quotes you listed, but really to save time I would refer you to just search YouTube for all the recorded videos of Trump's ignorance, hate speech, bigotry and everything else I mentioned. The videos are not altered. That should be proof enough, but than again I'm sure you'll have a totally different perspective.

To think Trump has the majority of Americans at heart is not taking into consideration most of his own Trump merchandise was produced overseas. He hired immigrant workers to build many of his real estate ventures. His own business ventures are in conflict with his ability to condemn foreign matters affecting the United States and it's allies. (Oh sorry, according to you we have no allies). The lack of condemning Saudi Arabia and Russia because of his business ventures there is a perfect example. His tax plan certainly benefited corporations when compared to a paltry 3% tax cut for the middle-class. Mexico won't pay for the wall like he promised, but heck that's alright because Americans especially the middle class will be holding the bill. Now he's touting "Republicans will totally protect people with Pre-Existing Conditions, Democrats will not!" Heck, Republicans voted against it! What a bold face lie. According to Forbes, Trump May Be The Most Fiscally Reckless President In American History! I'm sure you have reasons to justify all of the above.

Oh well, this forum is littered with conservatives, so really anything derogatory against Trump or pointing out just plain bold facts is met with a steady post of denials, lol. Par for the course.

Decorum is apparently very difficult these days, starting at the top.
