Accosting Acosta: will president pay political price for banning CNN reporter?

Donald Trump Insults CNN Reporter in Heated Press Conference

One wrote: "Sarah Sanders caught uploading InfoWars doctored video from her official gov account because the White House had an intern attack Jim Acosta to trump up false charges is peak Banana Republicanism - Sue her @CNN".

President Trump escalated his war with the media on Friday, telling one reporter, "You ask a lot of stupid questions", calling another "a loser" - and threatening to yank White House credentials from other reporters if they don't show him "great respect".

White House intern tries to take the microphone from CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

The National Association of Black Journalists, which also called for Acosta's White House credentials to be reinstated on Thursday, celebrated Ryan, Phillip and Alcindor on Twitter.

Mr Trump appeared ready to walk out as Acosta clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president's views on a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the USA border. When asked by a reporter if he wanted Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to "rein in Robert Mueller", Trump said, "What a stupid question that is". "I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser, she doesn't know what the hell she's doing. She shouldn't be. You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

In his press availability, Trump also went after April Ryan, a reporter for American Urban Radio Networks, as someone who did not show respect. At Wednesday's combative press conference, he told her to "sit down" when she attempted to ask a question. "But she's very nasty, and she shouldn't be" he said. "Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN", Trump shot back. "Our democracy depends on the functioning of an unfettered press that is allowed to question our leaders and hold them accountable without fear of reprisal".

"They can take insults - they don't need me sticking up for them", Baldwin said.

He scores important goals, makes important challenges, is a good passer of the ball and nearly always completes 90 minutes. FW Alexandre Lacazette , 7 - Came to the rescue with a great strike after a fairly quiet performance up to that point.

Acosta, meanwhile, is in Paris, where Trump will be landing later on Friday.

Acosta later tweeted that his press credentials to the White House had been revoked.

Trump added that Acosta's treatment of Sanders "is a disgrace". Why might other journalists in the room react that way, and why did Fox News's Chris Wallace say that Acosta had "embarrassed himself" on Wednesday?

In response to Sanders' statement about why his pass had been revoked, Acosta tweeted simply, "This is a lie". Trump responded in a vicious tone, "What a stupid question". Sarah Sanders, the press secretary, said it was suspended "until further notice". Surely, the media offered former President Obama such deference, but it is quite disturbing they refuse to give this President the same level of regard.

One of Trump's most hostile exchanges this week with a reporter of color came when he sparred with Alcindor when she asked Trump whether he worries his rhetoric is emboldening white nationalists.

Acosta's attempts haven't come without criticism and that particular incident earned him a derisive critique from White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.
