    That guy is such a jackass...I’m surprised it took this long for him to get the boot. You can disagree or dislike the president and ask tough questions without being a disrespectful douchebag

      He also technically committed assault and battery on that young lady. Now they are whining that the video is doctored, I saw it live he made contact with the female with intent. He could have just gave her the mic, and continued his rant. I wanted him and others removed from access for months. I also think that questions should be random, not for some having them every time. There need to be rules and consequences if you break them.

        I think Trump feels empowered by the Election results and is ready to rumble!

          Acosta is just doing his job, he'd do the same thing to Obama if Obama was a dickwad like Trump. Too many snowflakes here.

            Not a chance. CNN worships Obama.

              I think he's comfortable in the job now too and knows his enemies better.

                  Agree. Anderson Cooper would leave his boyfriend in a New York Minute if Barack and Michelle ever separate!!

                    You'd leave your boyfriend, wouldn't you?

                      His job is White House Correspondent for CNN.

                        Ahhhh!!! This explains the quality and accuracy of your conclusions.

                        Your answer is as useful as teets on a bull.

                        So let’s try it again. What is the role of a White House Correspondent position?

                        The role of his position is to correspond at the White House, hence the title White House Correspondent.

                        There's decorum lacking on all sides.

                        But I do find it comical that a liberal reporter is whining about not being able to do what he wants how he wants to do it in the face of someone he doesn't respect.

                        I dare say this is Acosta's first experience with authority.

                            If he were up for SCOTUS this might be construed as rape.

                            If I were the WH I might just ignor CNN and MSNBC.

                            I don't always agree with Trump's style BUT CNN was way over the line.

                            The article addresses and debunks this pretty thoroughly btw: in 8 years of the Obama Administration, when did you ever see reporters behaving in such a manner to the President?

                            Even when reporters knew they were being lied to--no one confronted him about it. No one repeatedly interrupted the President's explanations and answers--trying to drown out the President's response with their own opinion. They listened and allowed the President to finish whatever train of thought he was pontificating about: going on for 2 minutes...5 minutes...even 15+ minutes on a single question, uninterrupted.

                            You don't see that with the media and Trump.
