Jim Acosta’s press pass suspended by White House


FOX: CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass to access the White House was suspended “until further notice” Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump.

Acosta tweeted: “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”

Press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta’s tweet in a statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” She called the behavior “absolutely unacceptable.”

The CNN reporter, during a news conference at the White House earlier Wednesday, got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan. Trump told Acosta to let him do his job.

“Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN,” Trump told Acosta.

The reporter tried to ask him another question before a female White House aide walked over to him.

Trump then told him, “That’s enough!”

Acosta continued to try to talk as the intern was seen trying to take the microphone from his hand. She grabbed the microphone but Acosta wouldn’t give it up. more here

  1. Yet, April Ryan asked him if he’s a white supremacist and she’s still there.

    Even after she threatened to assault Sarah Huckabee for saying “you don’t know me” and the whole “you didn’t bake that pie” imbroglios.

    Kick her fat ass to the curb and let her do her Popeye’s chicken reviews for Urban Radio.

  2. Sarah Sanders and the President have been much more tolerant of Acosta’s antics and disrespect for way too long. He should never be allowed on the White House Lawn or building ever again.

  3. Tell Acosta that if he is found on White House grounds without permission that Secret Service will have no choice but to scrape him off and toss him in the trash like the dog shit he is.

  4. The hilarious part is the idiots on Twitter who are claiming that revoking his press credentials violates Freedom of the Press.

    Well, then why require press credentials to begin with?

    Jim and only Jim is to blame for this. That’s what happens when you refuse to give up the microphone like some drunken, tone-deaf asshole in a Karaoke bar.

    But this asshole and every other news outlet is going to squeeze every ounce of outrage out of this that they can. Which is kind of funny. Now instead of talking about the Democrats regaining the House, they will once again be talking about themselves.

    And they fall for it every time.

  5. I like putting this on Freedom of Speech grounds.

    Tonight, an ANTIFA mob is pounding on the door of Tucker Carlson’s home, threatening his and his family’s lives and taunting that they’re going to get his racist ass because they “know where he lives”.

    This filth needs to eat a bullet or 30.

  6. envisioning him & the Hildabeast sitting together in a warm tub, candles all around, mass quantities empty bottles of Chardonnay clattering around the floor & floating in the tub … Jimmie muttering “I showed him! … yeah …. “. Hildabeast muttering “yeah … you sure did …. just like me! …. we’re great … burp”

    … tomorrow, the hangover & the realization that you’re not going to the White House any more & you are not ‘important’ in people’s lives anymore
    (this goes for BOTH of them)

  7. Bestest news of the day!

    @ BB – I just sent a link about the Tucker incident to @BFH.

    Like I told him…NOT.GOOD.


  8. Abilio James Acosta has finally scored the coveted disabilio parking spot in Falls Church, VA, very near the I 66 expressway, which speeds you at 8 mph (while collecting massive tolls) to the Metro stop that sometimes get you to the Foggy Bottom station, which is a mere quarter mile from a White House, where you are no longer allowed access.

    I used to feel sorry for the leftist bimbo that lost to the dead pimp.

    She can at least take solace in the fact that she’s not Abilio.

  9. The President should have had 6 armed guards escort him to the White House gate for causing a disruption. Keep his pass for a year or two minimum. CNN is the real issue, they only hire Trump haters.

  10. Hey IOTW.
    What’s the difference between a steaming pile of dog shit on your freshly manicured lawn and a Democrat posing as a journalist?

    I don’t know either.

  11. But I thought leftists like Oblivion Acosta always claim to be the ones who respect and support women. It sure appeared that he did in no way support or respect that young woman. Or are my eyes lying to me?

  12. I would love to see the entire press corps fitted with dog shock collars, so when they say something stupid, or won’t shut up at least they can be entertaining!

  13. According to CNN and NBC and I’m sure a host of others it’s fine for a man to put his hands on a woman as long as he’s a progressive POS.

  14. this will take the wind right out of the elections sails.

    nothing but “WH throws out press” for the next 3 days until the new AG is announced.

  15. “…I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”

    Due to your earlier “hit”.

    You know, Abilio, that’s probably not the best journo jargon to be flinging around right now.
