Thread: Judge orders White House to restore Acosta's press pass

  1. #21
    ...and according to Trump, that new set of decorum rules for the press is being developed as requested by the court. Acosta's "win" may be quite short-lived.

    Speak only when spoken to, speak out of turn, get tossed for being disruptive


    Police have arrested people on less of a disturbance
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    HMMMM
    Because most of the press questions are about a subject that was just covered, for 1.

    And..Sappy was primed by his handlers to gloss over the very simple fact that Acosta was not asking a question at all..he was openly debating and arguing with Trump over the "definition and nature" of the caravan.

    Invaders they are indeed....the whiny protestations of Acosta and his left-wing minions notwithstanding.

    I *liked* Sam. I've mentioned before that I once got through to him on his now defunct radio show.
    He was annoying but his comment to me and to others is that you can have bias so long as you are *fair*.

    Tim Russert was *fair*. Also a die-hard liberal. You'd never know it from his appearances on "Meet the Press".

    Chris Wallace is left of center - and a lifelong registered Democrat, although he admits, it's pretty much the only way to get around in DC politics.
    Shepard Smith is a mainstay of FOX News - but don't get on his nerves on some hot-button issues. While he's never been a fan of Trump,
    he mostly keeps his progressive opinions to himself.

    Acosta would be more at home on SNL. His "questions" often aren't questions at all, but word games that would surpass those of the Pharisees.

    I don't recall this sort of treatment given to ANY preceding President, especially not Obama, whom they couldn't STOP from
    fawning over. Reporters would get all starry eyed and flustered, and he'd smirk and say something like "it's okay, I get that a lot".
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    I think you don't know what a dictatorship looks like. Let's start with this - If Trump were a dictator, most of his detractors would be dead.
