BREAKING: White House SUSPENDS CNN’s Jim Acosta After He Assaults Female Aide

by Sheri Urban

Jim Acosta’s White House press pass has been suspended following an incident where the CNN reporter/protester accosted a female White House staffer on Wednesday.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders broke the news:

“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…

This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.

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 supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters…

…over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question. The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration.”

As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice.

In case you missed it, below is video of Jim Acosta forcefully pushing away a female White House staffer (and “chopping” her arm away) when she tried to take away his microphone after he engaged in an argument with the President:

UPDATE: Jim Acosta said Secret Service denied him entry to the White House grounds!

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit,” Acosta said in a tweet.

Jim Acosta then tweeted a video of him being denied entrance by Secret Service:

This is well overdue. Acosta completely disrupted today’s presser by Trump, refusing to let other reporters speak and acting more like a “resistance” protester than a journalist reporting the news.
