You probably knew this was going to happen…right? A staffer whose job it is to pass the mic from reporter to reporter was stopped by CNN’s Jim Acosta today from doing her job. Acosta got into a little wrestling match with the staffer pulling while Acosta was pulling the mic. NBC twisted the truth in their tweet about it:
This doesn't describe what happened properly at all. It was her job to move the mic to the next person and he wouldn't surrender it. https://t.co/e5K5g6KNUy

It’s the White House aide’s job to pass the mic. If you watch the video, you’ll see that she grabs the mic to pass but Acosta wouldn’t let go even though the president told him his time was up.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT:
President Trump held a press conference today with the media asking just about everything under the sun. Our president was a champ and handled the press so well.
President Trump responded to CNN’s Jim Acosta with a total rebuke of CNN’s fake news. Trump answered question about the caravan and didn’t want any more from him. “That’s enough, Put down the mike,” Trump told Acosta. “You are a rude, terrible person,” the pres said, adding, “the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.”

Acosta refused to give up the mic. He’s working for his day in the news by acting like a jerk. A longer version below:

Acosta should have his WHPC credentials pulled. His grandstanding is disrespectful to other journalists in the room. He takes way too much time when he’s asking questions and tries to create drama so he can get his mug on the nightly news. The ungentlemanly way he wouldn’t let the woman take the mic was unbelievably rude. Would he have done that to a male trying to take the mic from him? We’re sure the feminists will ignore this moment.
