    Global news is a click bait youtube channel, worthless.
    Acosta is a jack ass but he doesn't have the balls to actually assault a kitten ,much less a full grown woman.:tounge2:

    Whether it was assault or not is a moot point. He should have been tossed out and banned long ago. He is an arrogant piece of dirt that has no business in the White House. Can you imagine the outrage if this would have happened to Obama and his staff? All hell would have broken loose. I thought Trump handled it very well. He could have easily blew up.

    If it happened during an Obama press conference he would have been hung for being racist.

    If things were straightforward, the White House would demand an apology from CNN before any CNN reporter would be allowed back, and that would be that.

    But given the Byzantine reality of the ongoing Trump resistance/culture war/etc., the White House must play 3D chess with the media. It is entirely likely that this was a calculated move and that the Left has a game plan for all the possible White
    House moves. I can imagine that a flat out exclusion of CNN might trigger the major network to scream bloody murder about an attack of freedom of the press and stage extreme disruptions of future press conferences themselves.

    Trump needs to set some rules on respect and civility regarding the attending media and he needs to temper his words. He has done more for the country though than anyone predicted, far more I suspect than the other candidates wpuld have done that ran against him.

    Particularly when it's actually battery, not assault.

    We've learned alot about something that people seem to agree didn't happen. We also have a little speculation which is neither unusual nor uncalled for. What if the thing that didn't happen hadn't happened when Obama was president? Just imagine how much worse it would have been if it hadn't happened then.

    I'm not sure Obama's reign could have gotten much worse in any case... :D
