Did CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Intentionally Hit Intern’s Arm?
During a Presidential Press Conference, one in which President Trump was attempting to reach out to the Democratic Party to work with him and might I add doing so with a mild tone of voice, a CNN "reporter" became very rude.
CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed the President on why he characterized a caravan of thousand's of Central American "asylum" seekers hundreds of miles from the US border “an invasion,” the president attempted to answer his question, but his answer did not satisfy Acosta. When Acosta disagreed with the him President Trump stated well that is a matter of opinion.
President Trump then stated:
Honestly I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much higher...That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough. Excuse me, that’s enough
A female White House intern then walked over to Acosta and attempted to retrieve the microphone, as she was supposed to do, to give the mic to the next reporter for their question. CNN's Jim Acosta did not like that and wanted to continue to badger the President. He then appeared to some to push his arm down hitting the female intern's arm to prevent her from retrieving the microphone.
You judge whether what he did was on purpose or not. Fast forward the audio below, supplied by Fox Business News to the 3 minute mark and you decide if he was unintentionally pushing his arm down or he intentionally pushed his arm down to block the White House intern from retrieving the mic to give to the next reporter for their question.
These "reporters" in my opinion are acting like a bunch of gangsters.
We need real, honest and unbiased reporters to help heal the wounds of this country.
