    Right.
    A press conference is an opportunity for journalists to ask questions and record answers. It's not a debating society.

      If the mic is under the control of the WH, Trump has an absolute right to have it removed.
      Removing it from Acosta might not have been the right thing to do, but Acosta has no right to monopolize the mic, but that is more of a protocl question I guess.
      Trump has the right to remove Acosta from the press conference for disorderly conduct. I would have made an example out of him and had the Secret Sevice subdue him and have him hogtied and carried out of the room on national TV. I bet not one member of the liberal press would act like a kindergartener after that.

            I've stated my opinion on this more than once. I think the interaction between the intern and Acosta is completely irrelevant. It doesn't rise to the level of an assault. That would be stupid. But, that said, Acosta wasn't asking a question, he was looking for an argument, a verbal fight. That is an assault of sorts too and completely unacceptable at a press conference by a US President. Acosta should never have started with "I'm challenging you..."

            He deserved to be tossed out for those words alone. He's a reporter, not Trump's political opponent. He had ZERO reason to start his turn off by first challenging, then arguing with Trump. That was completely unacceptable.

                    What has Trump done to affect Acosta's 1st amendment rights?

                    Acosta can say and write anything he wishes. Trump has just denied him the right to do it in the WH press room.
                    I'm not allowed in there either and my rights haven't been affected.

                    • Smells like a conspiracy theory pushed by RW operatives. Infowars most likely. It's best to not rely on panic mongering propaganda for news and facts.

                        Huh? Trump is attacking? You are mixed up; it was the press that first initiated the attack with fake news. The stuff that is often written about and reported isn't even news; it's opinion and BS. The press needs to get their act together. BTW, stop buying into it.

                          Like CNN.

                            No, Trump is kicking out a single obnoxious ahole that wanted an argument rather than ask a question at a Q & A session. I'd do the same if I were holding one at some official venue. Acosta doesn't have the "right" to take the floor and make a speech followed by demands. That is, in essence, what he did.

                              What's wrong with CNN? Much more credible than RW operatives. I do understand that RW operatives tell you that CNN is 100% fake news. You shouldn't be so naive.

                              I probably listen to Fox and Rush more than anyone here.

                                CNN doesn't have a lot of credibility.



                                Also, I really don't care who you listen to or read. What impresses me is your ability to produce a reasonable and factual argument.
