SHOCK: Watch Jim Acosta’s Arm When Female Trump Staffer Tries to Take the Mic

CNN reporter Jim Acosta came under fire on Wednesday for how he handled it when a female Trump staffer attempted to take the microphone away from him.

The moment preceded a very tense exchange with President Donald Trump over the migrant caravan and the president’s feelings about CNN.

“I think you should let me run the country, you ruin CNN — and if you did it well, you’re ratings would be much better,” Trump told the reporter.

Trump then told Acosta, “That’s enough.”

But he refused to give up the microphone, physically resisting the female Trump aide who attempted to retrieve it and give it to another reporter.

Watch the moment and keep your eye on Acosta’s arm:

“That’s enough,” Trump barked.

He then unloaded on Acosta in front of the entire press corps when he continued shouting into the microphone.

“CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are rude, terrible person,” Trump said. “You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

Watch Trump’s entire exchange with Acosta:

And the media wonders why Americans don’t trust them.

    We were watching when it happened and that was the first thing I commented on was how he pushed her arm away. If a conservative had done something like that, the liberal media would have been all over it!

    How dare she try to take the mike – because it is her job, and President Trump had indicated that Acosta was done. Hopefully they won’t give him his credentials back – ever. Now CNN will be whining about censorship. I’ll be called “sexist”, but a large man should have been available to take her place, and let Acosta try that on him. They should have also had someone at the controls to turn that mike off if Acosta persisted.

    Let’s see. Acosta accosted the President, demanding that the “Caravan” was not an invasion. Mr. Trump stated that it was. Acosta continued to insist. We’ve seen these people tear down gates to get into Mexico. After traveling all that distance, do you think they’re going to stop, think “they won’t let me in” and turn around and go home?

    I love what the President said to Acosta. “You are a very rude and terrible person”. Exactly, there are other adjectives that come to mind – mainly JERK! It makes me very happy that there have been consequences leveled on this so called journalist for his rude and terrible behavior. I felt very sorry for the position he put this young woman in who was just doing what she was told by the President of the United States.

    They always scream freedom of the press. Well that means exactly what it says. You can write or say what you want to wirhout repercussions as long as it is true and not libel or slander. However, that doesn’t give you the right to be an idiot or an obnoxious jackass to others. Being on the White House Press Corp is an honor and a privilege that many writers and reporters aspire to. To take advantage of that privilege and misconstrue it to make it your Constitutional right somehow as CNN and Jim Acosta have is a complete travesty to the rest of America and the press corp. The President doesn’t owe you anything. You are not privileged and are not entitled to a damn thing from him or his staff or the White House. If he so wishes he doesn’t have to answer even one single question from any reporter from any news organization. It’s not written down anywhere. He doesn’t have to tell you a thing about what he is doing or plans to do about anything with the government. He can be completely silent, that is his prerogative and his alone. You do not get to demand anything. You have no rights under the ‘freedom of the press’ or the fioa. If he desires he can issue a single page written statement published once a month or every other month and have it distributed to all news agencies at the same time so nobody gets the scoop or exclusives. No more one on one interviews, no more question and answer sessions, no more press briefings, nothing. Just a simple, single sheet statement published from the White House. That’s your official news for the entire month. On that one day you all will have the same one page story. What the hell will you write about for the other 29 days to entertain what’s left of your audience.

    Jim Acosta is an idiot. What is he trying to accomplish? Embarrass the President? I applaud President Trump for taking away Acosta’s WH privileges. Acosta is a hot head who does nothing but bring CNN down as if it isn’t already the worst news channel in America. They need to clean up their act by reporting accurate and true news stories not recite their views on the news. President Trump is correct. The media is an enemy of the people because they do not report the news correctly. Only Fox, OANN and Newsmax are truthful.
