    Acosta was attempting to follow-through with a question Trump clearly did not want to answer. This is what good reporters do, be persistent. It’s a press conference, not a polite cocktail party.

    She was obviously "asking for it."

    Be persistent and aggressively block a young female intern from doing her job by roughly knocking her hand away, right?

    It's funny how you guys want to crucify Trump over mere words but give Jim Accost-her a pass for his inappropriate actions.

    Do any of you remember when Lewandowski was charged with battery for merely grabbing the arm of a reporter in order to move her out of the way? The liberals couldn't shut up about it.



    Jim Acosta even reported on it himself at the time:

    If you call what he did 'using physical force against a women' then I would have to ask just how many mattresses does it take for you to get a good nights sleep pix? That whole line is just ridiculous, from Sanders 'inappropriate touching' down to the discussion here. Is there no depth to which you will not stoop to support 'your guy in the white house'?

    And that was just as STUPID then as it is now. So Sparko - you will now defend STUPID because it is 'your guy' in the white house?

    Do you guys have a CLUE what integrity actually means? Here's a clue. It means that if you think something is wrong, it doesn't matter if it is your friend or your enemy that is doing it, it is STILL wrong.

    I’m just using liberal standards against them. Funny how those rules are only for those they dislike and not for themselves.

    Oh I agree it was dumb. That doesn't change the fact that Acosta and every other liberal reporter jumped on this like a dog with a bone and called it intentional and assault and made a huge deal out of it. Yet now they are playing off a similar incident as a nothing burger.

    Do you guys have a CLUE what integrity actually means? Here's a clue. It means that if you think something is wrong, it doesn't matter if it is your friend or your enemy that is doing it, it is STILL wrong.

    Jim
    How about THEY have some integrity for once? I freely admit both incidents were nothing and even said so at the time of each. I have nothing to apologize for. My view hasn't changed. But if Acosta and the others were so gung-ho to condemn Lewandowsky then they should have the integrity to admit Acosta did something similar. Or apologize for their treatment of Lewandowski.

    Did you watch the video? You can't deny what he did. It was captured on camera for everyone to see. No need to guess or rely on third-hand reports. You only have to trust your own eyes. For your convenience:



    Go to the 1 minute 29 second mark.

    Tell me, if that was your wife or daughter being treated in that manner, would you really be so ho-hum about it?

    Are you out of your ever living mind?

    He did nothing but hold onto the mike and simply positioned his hand against her arm as she tried to take the mike. There was no 'force' involved.

    This does tell me a lot about those of you claiming Acosta 'assaulted' this young lady, and your actual capacity to be reasonable when it comes to these debates. Thanks for the clarification.
