    Absolutely terrible the way Jim Acosta assaults this young woman, in front of the worlds media too, how did he expect to get away with it? It's a good job the White House are on the case.
    We really are living in post truth times.

    No coincidence that it takes the story away from the republicans losing the House and Trump firing Sessions.

    When you take a step back and look at everything Trump's done since he became president, which is actually difficult because there's so much of it, it's totally insane. There are definitely parallels with certain bygone times but we can't say that because of Godwin's Law.

    I thought he was joking but yeah, that is what Trump went with...

    The White House has suspended the credentials of CNN's chief White House correspondent hours after a testy exchange with US President Donald Trump.

    A White House staffer tried to grab the microphone from CNN's Jim Acosta at the news conference on Wednesday.

    But press secretary Sarah Sanders said access was removed because the reporter put "his hands on a young woman".

    Check this thread. The video evidence is doctored from fucking Infowars.
    They had to go for assault as they couldn't get away with saying the question was too tough for the emperor.

    If the roles were reversed and it was Trump who had allegedly "assualted" the young girl, you can bet your house that the anti Trump supporters who are (rightly) defending the reporter, would be screaming "ASSAULT!!!" and levelling all kinds of accusations at him.

    Its the constant lying and covering up of the lies that wears me down, which is probably the point.
    At some stage everyone will just say, Ah fuck it he's not going to change, what's the point in trying.
    As for aggression against a woman I thought this clip was far worse.

    Its a rude and aggressive response to a reporter who is trying to do her job.
    He has no authority or control of the room,so reporters end up acting like schoolkids taking the piss out of a substitute teacher.
    Edit. second clip.

    Am I missing something here?

    What assault?

    All I see is some woman trying to grab a microphone and a bloke stopping her.

    Ha, the substitute teacher thing is spot on.

    Also hilarious that Sarah Sanders said "it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration" when the president is on tape talking about grabbing women by the pussy because he can get away with it. But that's all part of the distraction tactic - although that's only a short term tactic that works in bursts.

    It is this kind of stuff that worries the feck out of me.
    A version of the footage to suit whatever 'truth' the viewer prefers...
    I suspect that it may soon not even matter to many, whether they *know* that footage is being doctored, just so long as they see the version that continues to satisfy their viewpoint.

    'Reality TV' .. it's real.

    Playing devil's advocate here, but this is the legal definition of assault ......

    "a threat or attempt to inflict offensive physical contact or bodily harm on a person (as by lifting a fist in a threatening manner) that puts the person in immediate danger of or in apprehension of such harm or contact"

    Actual contact causing damage is "battery". The legal question here would be whether the young lady felt threatened by his action in hanging onto the mic. :sherlock:

    So technically the woman was assaulting the man, who then defended himself.

    Lock her up i say.
