I saw the original footage, and I see no evidence of Acosta being a misogynist. For one thing, he said "Pardon me, ma'am" while simply trying to keep her from taking his microphone. For another, he would have treated a male intern the same. He was trying to keep the microphone so that he could ask Trump some hard questions, not so that he could insult the intern. in fact, he seemed concerned enough about the intern's well-being to say "Pardon me."
But conservatives who saw the doctored video didn't hear him say "Pardon me, ma'am" for one thing.
Reporter Ben Jacobs of The Guardian said he approached Gianforte, a former technology executive, at a meet-and-greet event at the candidate's office in Bozeman, Montana.
Jacobs allegedly went up to Gianforte to get his opinion on the Congressional Budget Office's analysis of the American Health Care Act as he was preparing for a television interview. All of a sudden, Gianforte "seemed to just snap," Jacobs said.
"He grabbed my recorder, and next thing I knew, I'd gone from being vertical to horizontal on the floor," he told "GMA" shortly after the incident.
"He was on top of me and wailing on me," Jacobs added.
President Trump on Friday said he had no regret for making light of Rep. Greg Gianforte's physical assault on a reporter at a Montana rally Thursday night.

"Manhandle", lol. I'd hate to see you in a fight, you wouldn't last half a second if you consider that "manhandling".
