Trump insults reporters, claims video of CNN's Jim Acosta wasn't altered

Trump also laced into another African-American journalist, Abby Phillip of CNN, who asked the president if he wanted the new acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to "rein in" the investigation being led by the special counsel, Robert Mueller. In particular, Shapiro says the video was sped up at the moment Acosta and the aide made contact in order to make Acosta's arm motion look more aggressive, with additional frames then inserted to restore the original timing. "She shouldn't be. You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

In honor of Wednesday's episode, here's a list of some of the tenser exchanges between the White House and Acosta.

"What a stupid question that is, what a stupid question".

"The Canadian parliamentary press gallery opposes the arbitrary cancellation of a reporter's accreditation as an unjustifiable limit on media access to a democratically elected government and a limit on the free press", president Philippe-Vincent Foisy said in a statement. "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".

CNN's other White House reporters and producers have been unaffected by the action against Acosta. Jim also took home some advice from Mr. President who seemed to be in a very bad mood during session.

President Donald Trump speaks to the media on the South Lawn of the White House, on Friday, November 9, 2018.

Family devastated after 3 children die walking to bus in IN
Four children were in the process of crossing the road to board the bus when they were struck by Shepherd's truck. Police arrested 24-year-old Alyssa Shepherd and charged her with reckless homicide and passing a school bus.

The president said that the bad blood between him and the media was the fault of journalists showing insufficient deference.

A 20-year veteran of the White House beat, Ryan pointed out that each president before Trump "understood that reporters were part of the underpinnings of this nation". To some media observers, Trump's reactions echoed reports that Trump has previously mocked the accent of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi or mimicked the style of Asian trade negotiators. It's a very special place.

"I think journalism in general doesn't adapt to politics", he said.

Of course, Trump has frequently sparred with white reporters, as well.

The president also warned that "others" could have their press passes revoked as well if they engaged in similar behavior. "I've traveled with him and watched him", Alexander said.

Acosta's attempts haven't come without criticism and that particular incident earned him a derisive critique from White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.

But FBI and other investigators had been responding to a US Postal facility in DE that morning, FBI spokesman Dave Fitz said. Thomas Antonetti told CNN that the package was received at 375 Greenwich Street and that the bomb squad is on the scene.

"It is a sad day when any reporter has to ask a sitting United States president if you are racist", she said in reference to Trump's dog whistle politics about white nationalism.

She added, "He's not apparently built for this".

"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump said. Trump also raised eyebrows earlier this month when he called Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is black, "not qualified", citing "her past" and "her history" without offering specifics. While Trump initially responded when Acosta asked about denuclearization, he refused to comment when Acosta pressed him on slain college student Otto Warmbier.

Alcindor in a tweet came to Phillip's and Ryan's defense, calling Phillip "a smart, professional, and hardworking journalist".

At the Wednesday news conference, Trump repeatedly told Ryan to "sit down", accusing her of interrupting a male reporter, as she tried to ask a question about voter suppression.

In a separate tweet, Alcindor said Ryan is "not a loser" and has "been winning in her personal and professional lives for a while".
