Trump puts the media in their place

A combative President Trump on Wednesday got into an angry confrontation with reporters at a White House news conference Wednesday.

After CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed him on why he characterized a caravan of a few thousand Central American asylum seekers hundreds of miles from the US border “an invasion,” the president erupted.

“Honestly I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much higher,” Trump said, adding “That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough. Excuse me, that’s enough,” as Acosta tried to follow up.

  2. paulb says:

    If I was CNN I would be looking for his replacement. He is lucky it is trump rather that Hillary as if he got in her face he would be found dead of a self inflict gun shot.

    Whenever I see jim acosta I want to bitch slap him and send him to his room, but then sara usually takes care of it. And I think even less of the jerks who think he is so smart.

      I swear, the Republican Party could make billions if they just did a 2 hour video of Sarah’s best bitchslaps of the media.

      Fuck, I’d buy that. And lobby to get it played on PBS during pledge drive season.

    I am so HARD right now…

      I believe you are on the wrong article. The one you probably want to comment to is the previous one. And be careful with that nitrous oxide.

    I watched it, was hoping DT would have security throw his ass out. Acosta was being a real dick, as usual.

    • crazyeighter says:

      I keep wondering when the White House is going to yank his press pass and tell CNN to send someone else.

      • PoppaGary says:

        Wonder no more, he went over the line big time and they finally pulled his credentials.

    Acosta is a prick.

  8. Roman Lance says:

    I liked when President Trump walked around the podium and started to approach Cuban-Cuck Accosta who finally sat down like a child being approached by daddy who’s tired of his crap, and means it.

    Good Stuff. Made me smile.

    • MT says:

      This is EXACTLY why I will support Pres Trump to the bitter and forgive him when he Tweets too much. It’s about time we had a President who isn’t afraid of doling out the smack-downs when/where necessary.

  9. Veeshir says:

    I guess we know how the next two years are going to go.
    With Trump egging them on our fine lefty betters will be letting their inner 2-year’old lunatic run free.

    There’s only room for 1 alpha male in the room. Bye Jim.

    Seems Acosta’s press access has been suspended. AMF

    • Wirecutter says:

      Just posted it.

      • Tsgt Joe says:

        Already he is being portayed as a victim by a meany president who just cant handle hard questions. Acosta is a sorry assed little prick who wouldnt talk his shit in an environment where he could get his ass kicked. I liked Roman Lanses description.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
