CNN’s Jim Acosta has press pass suspended by White House, Sarah Sanders announces

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. “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta tweeted Wednesday night. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.” White House 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,” the president said. 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 and there was brief contact between the two. Sanders in a statement — which Acosta later labeled “a lie” — said that “President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern..” “Contrary to CNN’s assertions, there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not being supportive of a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of an hour and a half — including several from the reporter in question,” Sanders said. “The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it is an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration,” she added.

If you’ve not seen the video in question, watch it. Jim Acosta is an obnoxious, self-serving, elitist, grandstanding tool.  When he questions the President, it’s really all about him.  And, the way he acted toward the young female intern who was just trying to do her job, shows how arrogant he is.  What a nauseating tool…  And, for CNN to stand up for that prick, tells you everything you need to know about CNN.  It is what it is; agenda-driven fake news.  And they wonder why their ratings are in the toilet…  And for all of these liberal reporters and news organizations to wring their hands about the 1st Amendment, and the rights of the media?  Really?  Gimme a break..  Just you’re in the media doesn’t mean you have a right to question the president.  He gets to choose who asks him questions, and who is allowed at White House press events.  That’s always the way its been.  And, President Trump is notorious for marathon question and answer sessions with the press.  So, their whining is more fake news and bs.  Kudos to Fox News’ Chris Wallace for calling what Jim did “shameful.”  Exactly..  For more, click on the text above.

Trump chides reporter for ‘racist’ question: ‘So insulting to me’

President Trump said Wednesday that a reporter’s question about whether he foments white nationalism was a “racist” question. “To say that is so insulting to me,” Mr. Trump told a NPR NewsHour reporter Yamiche Alcindo during a a press conference at the White House. She had questioned Mr. Trump about whether his calling himself a nationalist was a dog whistle for white nationalists, an often repeated charge in the news media. She said using the word makes people think the Republican Party is aligned with white nationalists. “That’s such a racist question,” responded the president, who noted his high approval rating among black Americans. Mr. Trump said there as no connection between nationalism and white nationalism. “You know what the word is, I love our country,” Mr. Trump said.

Isn’t it great seeing a president actually punch back against these obnoxious, race-baiting liberal reporters trying to gin up fake news?  Excellent!!      🙂

Dan Crenshaw, Navy SEAL Mocked by ‘SNL,’ Wins Big in Texas

Dan Crenshaw, the retired Navy SEAL mocked by Saturday Night Live for wearing an eye patch, beat his Democrat rival by eight points in Texas’s Second Congressional District. The retired lieutenant commander, who served five overseas deployments, two after an IED blast in Afghanistan robbed him of sight in his right eye, replaces retiring Republican Ted Poe. President Trump won that district by 9.3 points in 2016, which means Crenshaw did better than many in the GOP, as some saw big declines compared to 2016. During the weekend, Crenshaw became a household name after performer Nick Davidson mocked his war wound on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. During a Weekend Update segment on the left-wing show, Davidson showed the audience a photo of Crenshaw wearing his eye patch and said he looked like a “hitman in a porno movie,” adding, “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever.” The backlash was immediate. Crenshaw was praised for his measured response. In a tweet, he said, “I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.” He later asked for Saturday Night Live to donate $1 million to veterans groups. So far, NBC has had no comment on the offer.

Shame on SNL for their brazen mockery and disrespect of this great veteran for his war injury.  That’s beyond disgraceful.  Shame on NBC for not issuing an immediate apology.  In addition, they should fire Nick Davidson immediately.  What a nauseating tool..  That said..  How great is it that Dan has the last laugh?!?   Congrats to Dan on his victory last night in the great state of Texas!  And we thank him for his service and personal sacrifice as a former Navy SEAL.   Outstanding!!      🙂

CNN’s Don Lemon: ‘Biggest terror threat in this country is white men’

CNN anchor Don Lemon declared Tuesday night that the biggest terror threat the country faces today is “white men” and that something needs to be done about them. Mr. Lemon made the comments while speaking to fellow anchor Chris Cuomo about last week’s killing of two black men at a Kentucky supermarket in an apparent hate crime. It came just days before Saturday’s mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue and amid a rash of pipe bombs mailed to more that a dozen high-profile Democrats. All of the alleged perpetrators appear to be white men. Mr. Lemon said he doesn’t like to demonize people but can’t help but consider white men to be the biggest threat to Americans’ safety. “I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, some people who are marching towards the border,” he said, dismissing the migrant caravan heading for the southern U.S. border as not a real threat to security. “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right,” he said. “And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?” Mr. Lemon then apologized to Mr. Cuomo for getting political when the victims in the Kroger supermarket shooting — 69-year-old Maurice Stallard and 67-year-old Vickie Lee Jones — are “being lost” in the dialogue. “You’re making the right point,” Mr. Cuomo responded. “You’re covering the right story, and I appreciate you for that.”

Wow..  Just imagine if Megyn Kelly or ANY white personality on tv, or radio, or God-forbid, Trump had said that “the biggest terror threat the country faces today is black men”..  Can you even imagine what would happen?!?!  There would probably be riots!  Democrat (and probably some ankle-grabbing Republican) politicians, pretty much ALL of HollyWEIRD, and the entire liberal media establishment would be calling for that person to be fired, and then investigated for hate crimes, lol.  They would be ruined for life.  Heck, you can’t even say the word “nigger” on tv or radio anymore…unless your black, and a rap artist, of course.  No.  It’s “the N word.”  But.. Don Lemon is a gay, black, extremely liberal blowhard that is able to get away with what he’s saying because he’s a liberal black guy.  And the fact that he’s gay probably gives him a little extra protection among the liberal elite.  Again, just another example of the breathtaking hypocrisy of the dominantly liberal mainstream media and Democrat politicians.  Don Lemon should be fired from CNN immediately, and apologize for his brazenly racist comments.  Racism works BOTH ways, CNN.  Let’s see if you have the courage to put your own bias aside and do the right thing.  What a disgusting, racist tool..

Hillary Clinton jokes ‘they all look alike’ after interviewer mixes up Cory Booker and Eric Holder

Hillary Clinton joked about how black men like Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former Attorney General Eric Holder “all look alike.” During an interview on Friday, Clinton made the quip while correcting Recode’s Kara Swisherabout who recently goaded on Democratic voters by rhetorically encouraging them to “kick” Republicans when they “go low.” After Clinton noted how she adores Booker, Swisher asked the former secretary of state what she thought about this “kick them” remark. “Well, that was Eric Holder,” Clinton noted. “Eric Holder, oh, Eric Holder, sorry,” Swisher said. “Yeah, I know they all look alike,” Clinton quipped to a wave of laughter and applause in the room.

Wow..  Just fathom if President Trump or ANY Republican had made such a crack..  Mika and Joe over at MSNBC, or Jake at CNN would lose their minds.  But, hey..  It’s Hillary.  So, she gets a pass by the spectacularly hypocritical dominantly liberal mainstream media.  Typical..  As many of you know, we like to point out the brazen hypocrisy of the liberal media.  And, like the article above about Don Lemon, we’ll continue to expose their hypocrisy for you.  For more, click on the text above.

#WalkAway movement urges disgruntled Democrats to leave the party behind

A newly created political movement urging liberals to leave the Democratic Party held a march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The five-month-old #WalkAway movement advocates that those who feel disillusioned with the party — which some say uses scare tactics and identity politics — to come out publicly against it. Several hundred supporters attended Saturday’s mile-long march along Pennsylvania Avenue — from John Marshall Park near the Capitol to Freedom Plaza near the White House. “We’re walking away from the Democratic Party and literally walking toward freedom,” #WalkAway founder Brandon Straka told Fox News. Straka spearheaded the movement after posting an online video in May explaining why he was abandoning the Democratic Party. “People are fed up with what’s happening on the left,” he said, adding that interest skyrocketed after the hearings into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanauagh. “These were really the kind of die-hard loyalists. People in their 60s and 70s who had been Democrats their whole life who said ‘This was the final straw for me.’” Scores of video testimonials posted to the #WalkAway Campaign Facebook page give a variety of reasons for switching political allegiances. Some said the Democratic Party has become hate-filled and hostile to opposing points of view while moving further to the left. Others say they were tired of the party’s “politically correct” culture. The movement caught President Trump’s attention. He tweeted about the event before it began: “Walkaway from the Democrat Party movement marches today in D.C. Congratulations to Brandon Straka for starting something very special.” Straka said he’s most proud that minority groups, such as Latinos, African-Americans and the LGBTQ community, have embraced his movement. “These minority groups that I think the Democratic Party has had sort of a stranglehold for so long on, they are walking away,” he said. “They want to be self-empowered.”

Indeed..  Boy is this driving the dominantly liberal mainstream media (i.e. NBC, CNN, MSNBC, etc.), which is just a propaganda machine for the Democratic party, absolutely crazy!  CNN is suggesting that this movement doesn’t even exist, and that it’s ploy by the RNC and Russia to divide the Dem party.  THAT is how crazy CNN and MSNBC are.  They cannot accept the fact that there are some disillusioned life-long Dems, who have had enough of their party, and are “walking away” from it.  Imagine that..  For more, click on the text above.

Ted Koppel to Brian Stelter: ‘CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump’

CBS contributor and former ABC “Nightline” anchor Ted Koppel told CNN’s senior media correspondent Brian Stelter that his ratings would “be in toilet” if Donald Trump weren’t president. The dis came during a panel discussion Monday for The National Press Club’s “The Kalb Report” about the state of journalism under President Trump. Mr. Stelter, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, argued that the press is victim of a “hate movement” led by the president, who routinely lambasts CNN as “fake news.” Mr. Koppel said CNN would be nowhere without Mr. Trump. “He has been wonderful for the industry,” Mr. Koppel said. “But that means what?” Mr. Stelter asked. “If ratings are up, that means what?” “It means you can’t do without Donald Trump,” Mr. Koppel responded. “You would be lost without Donald Trump.” “Ted, you know that’s not true,” Mr. Stelter fired back. “CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump,” Mr. Koppel continued. “You know that’s not true, you’re playing for laughs,” Mr. Stelter said. “You’ve lived through enough presidencies to know there will be more presidents.” Mr. Koppel asked Mr. Stelter how CNN’s ratings have changed since Mr. Trump took office, to which the “Reliable Sources” host estimated “we might be up 20, we might be up 30 percent, we might be up 40 percent.” He then insisted that it would “OK, too” if those numbers went down, prompting the rest of the panel and the audience to laugh. “I reject the premise that these networks are making so much money off of Trump and thus, we benefit from it,” Mr. Stelter said. Mr. Koppel acknowledged that criticizing CNN in Mr. Stelter’s presence was a “sensitive subject,” so he pointed to MSNBC as also profiting off covering the president’s every move. “Is there a moment of the day when they are not focusing on Donald Trump?” he mused. Mr. Stelter later addressed the exchange on Twitter, saying Mr. Koppel oversimplified the “cyclical” nature of cable news ratings.

Ted just took Brian to the cleaners..    Ted is spot on here.  CNN and MSNBC would be totally lost without their pathological fixation on President Trump.  To see this exchange, click on the text above.  Great job Ted!     🙂
