    WH has suspended Acosta's press credentials
    Yashar Ali @yashar

    The White House has suspended @Acostaís hard pass which means he needs permission/an escort every time he goes to the WH.

    Iíve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit

    1. Oh boy! Trump is not happy about the outcome of the election. He's on a spree.
    This has nothing to do with the election. It has to do with Acosta's constant assh*lish behavior over the last 2 years and his behavior today insisting on continuing to ask questions when it was the next person's turn, and knocking the aides arm away as she went to take the microphone from him.

    6. If the National press corpse has any integrity

    they will take mass action to support Acosta.

    But the white house press corpse has shown damn little courage or integrity so far.

    Time to step up, or step down.

    9. This is completely infuriating.


    Act like a jack*ss, get treated like one. Act respectful and be treated respectfully.

    10. And Matthews on Hardball reporting it like it's the funniest thing ever

    This is NOT funny in the least, actually, and nobody in the press will be laughing once they've been silenced.

    14. Matthews may mean that it is so petty.

    Never in my lifetime have I seen a President act like Trump. He is garbage.
    And never in my life have I seen a reporter and an entire party act so mean and petty toward a President.

    11. Disgusting and dangerous.

    The president cuts off press access just because he thought a journalist was insufficiently deferential to him. I would love it if all of the WH press corps decided to stop attending Tiny's and SHS' farcical press events.

    17. The Dictator emerges....this is what putin & company does
    Jack*sses find that they cannot act like jack*sses without consequences and soooooo it MUST be the response of a "dictator".

    Liberal propaganda never stops.

    Sarah Sanders' explanatory Tweets:

    President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern...

    4:48 PM - Nov 7, 2018
    This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporterís colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.

    4:50 PM - Nov 7, 2018
    Contrary to CNNís assertions there is no greater demonstration of the Presidentís support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters...

    4:53 PM - Nov 7, 2018
    ...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, itĎs an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration
    As a result of todayís incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice.

    4:56 PM - Nov 7, 2018
    IOW, it was Acosta's jackassical behavior toward a female WH intern that got him suspended.

    Nothing precludes CNN going through the process of getting another reporter a press pass. Nothing but their TDS-fueled pride.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    no, a dictator would have "disappeared" acosta. All Trump did is merely give him a time out from the White House. There is a difference.

    Obviously his parents never taught him manners, to be respectful to his elders or to women. He probably was the kid you hated in a restaurant or at a store who was never disciplined when having a major tantrum.

    That press conference was unbelievable, with a roomful of belligerent little kids masquerading as adults.

    Trump should have had Acosta escorted out of the building.

    Rest-assured, Jim Clooney will regret he did this more-and-more as the days roll-on.

    His sources will move elsewhere to filter their message out. The network will stop going to him because he isn't there to add anything firsthand anymore. The network can't put a reporter on pundit-panels forever. Everything he says becomes tired and predictable, if the panels are only about Trump.

    I've seen it happen thru-out the decades. Before cable, ineffectual reporters would eventually end-up narrating independently-produced documentaries.

    Dear DUmmies,

    There is no fundamental right to a White House press pass. Also there are only 2 instances where a president had someone from the press or a member of the media: Woodrow Wilson and Barack Obama.

    Also a Dictator would "disappear" those who are against him.....for example, people like, say, AntiF(irst)A(mendment) and all genuine members of Democrat Underground. But that hasn't happened yet, has it DUmmies.
