      The way I see it is Acosta was acting like Leftists do at universities all the time at press conferences. They get the floor, interrupt, shout questions, make on-the-spot lectures, and otherwise disrupt the process. It seems they think they are the most important person present and the only one that has a right to be heard.
      Acosta asked his question, then kept on going with more and more. He began to badger Trump when he didn't get an answer he liked. Trump wanted to move on and give others a chance to ask a question but Acosta wouldn't give up the mic. This was all Acosta's fault for being a Progressive knucklehead rather than a reasonable person and journalist.

        Who controls the mic? Acosta or the Whitehouse?

            Trump was not hostile until he pointed his finger at Acosta and called him disgusting. And even that was after Acosta put his hands on a female intern. The standards of never Trumpers has reached a new low.

              That what I saw here. Her movement was sudden and unexpected and he reacted. I was actually surprised by her movement.

              btw I also like to put this one of in the catergory suppose it was a male reaching for the mic would we being seeing the same thing.


              I agree that if it were a male reaching for the mic we would view it differently.

              But it wasn't.
              If he were charged criminally, he could claim self defense, but I doubt it would be useful.
              Self defense requires that he reasonably believe that she was a threat.
              As HPJ noted, he doesn't even look at her. As such, it would be hard to say that his actions were driven by a perceived threat from her.

                    Stick to the subject. You think it’s ok for men to use physical force against women. Own it.

                      But on the other hand bad form by him and bad form by the President.


                      I think that is a reasonable interpretation of her actions as well.
                      However, the actions of the president aren't really relevant because they do not justify anything Acosta did with the intern.

                      Nothing Trump says or does, justifies taking action against a 3rd person.
                      Acosta's actions would be judged solely based on his interaction with the intern, not with Trump

                        Borderruffian hit the nail on the head.
                        Acosta had no right to deny possession of the mic to anyone.
                        The intern had the superior right of possession and control of the mic was never given to Acosta on anything other than a temporary basis.
                        That period ends when the owner of the mic says it does.

                          I stuck with you going off topic. Deal with it. Your comment on mistreating women is disgusting. If Acosta had punched the woman out would be one thing. What he did isn't even worth comparing.

                              A "battery" is an unwanted touching. He touched her and it is clear he intended to do so. Whether it was "just to keep the mic" isn't important, but feel free to think it is.
                              In order for the battery to be actionable there must be an intent to make contact and that contact be of an insulting or provoking nature.

                              The fact that you feel that "accidentally" stepping on a foot is relevant tells me you really don't have any clue of what you are talking about but won't let that stop you. "Hint": inclusion of the word "accidentally" makes the whole point irrelevant.

                              It remains "technically" a battery.
                              But please educate me some more on things you know nothing about.


                              AS usual you do not understand the rebuttal.

                              The stepping on someone's foot was a rebuttal to your claim that "A battery is defined as an "unwanted touching" which came without qualifications.
                              Obviously, there are unwanted touches which cannot be defined as a battery, thus the example I mentioned of stepping on someone's foot accidentally.


                              The second point is that even if the touch was intentional, it is still not a battery.

                              Feel free to educate us how one can use the video to legally argue that the touch was of an "insulting or provoking nature" under any reasonable standard. Only hacks can accept such nonsense!


                              Technically, it is not a battery.

                                The simplest thing would have been just to turn OFF the power to the microphone or cut the feed from it.

                                Or, better yet, turn up the gain from the microphone so high that the interference screech it caused would have deafened everyone in the room (and instantly made him the most disliked person in it.)
