    Exchange between President Trump and Jim Acosta

    Acosta's credentials should be pulled and he should be banned from the White House

    I thought the president should "pimp slap" Jim and Fox make an auto-tune video, but that's just my opinion.

    White House has suspended Jim Acosta’s hard pass due to his putting his hands on the intern handling the microphone during the press conference.

    His real name is Abilio Acosta but he refers to himself as Jim Acosta he must be related to Beto O'Rourke.

    Trump was PISSED. Handled it well though. Now I want to go back and watch the whole thing.

    When I was younger, I used to try to impress people with how expensive an item was, but as I grow older I find myself trying to impress people with how cheap I got an item.
    Don't tell someone they're wrong. Explain why. If you can't, maybe you're the wrong one.

    Now they are trying to say he was assaulted when the press aide tried to force the mic out of his hand...

    How rude, huh... When a president has a press conference and immediately tries to moderate it in a civil and organized manner and actually prevents some blowhard from commandeering the show.

    Now.. Let's all turn our clocks back to when Obama took the pass away from FOX for asking him a question he did not care for. If Trump did that, there would only be 2 or 3 reporters in the room right now.

    Acosta has been brewing for his name in lights for a long time by ranting at the president like this. Personally, the first time he did not shut up and sit down when I told him to he would have been out on his ear, eating sod, face down, in the Rose Garden. And if there was an official WH pooch, they would be set loose with a gusty "Sic em" flying in the breeze.

    I Think the president shouldn't have held any conference IMHO.

    He ran himself ragged over the past couple weeks and at 72, I am sure he is brain dead.

    The next time he gets in a pissing match with a reporter, he should bring in Sebastian and hand off questions to him.

    Sebastion sounds cool and says what Trump thinks - BUT - much better.

    EXAMPLE

    ACOSTA: "Mr. President are you not demonizing the migrants by claiming it's an invasion" ?

    TRUMP: Slaps Sebastion's arm and says "get this one for me".

    SEBASTION: "David you appear cerebrally challenged and incapable of forming cognitive thought,
    may I suggest a quick game of kiss the snake until it spits"
    ?



    Then Sebastion starts to unzip his pants on National TV - and all the networks
    switch from live feed to delay.

    Game on ...

    I though, and I said, he should have been banished from the White House, right after Trump became President.
    When I saw the exchange, I thought Trump should have called security to remove him for assaulting the young lady.
    Either one of those actions would have caused this to go a different route.

    Trump will be fine. He has been running at this speed for years.

    In fact, a bit of humor here:
    If the press and congress would have treated him respectfully and fairly,
    he would have probably gotten bored and resigned months ago.

    Reminds me of a sign in an auto repair shop:
    Arguing with a mechanic is like wrestling with a pig in mud,
    eventually you realize the pig is enjoying it!
    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.
