    Lol, whether he could have waited his turn, or spoke out of turn is as irrelevant as whether or not the mic belonged to him. What part of: 'you don't get to touch people, so they'll give you what you want' are you confused by?

    No deflection. I gave you a direct answer and then I asked you a question back. It's called dialogue

    She was no threat to him

    You don't get to decide who presents a threat to anyone else anymore than you get to decide whether or not you can touch someone without their consent. Acosta having a mic, a suit, a tie, a haircut, is irrelevant to whether or not you get to put your hands on him to get what you want.

    How do you have trouble with a simple concept?

    Oh, there is tons of deflection coming from your posts and he's not the only one who sees it.

    The truth is that the president commanded someone without any authority other than than being an aide, to put their hands on a member of the press. When that member of the press wouldn't stop asking questions, he removed their ability to ask questions. Nobody in their right mind is standing by the subsequent Infowars alternaive facts sent out by Sanders.

    You are though, and by the end of this discussion, you'll either end up embarrassed or looking completely deluded. Up to you.

    I'd go with embarrassed, it doesn't last as long in people's memories.

    The majority of people on both sides in this thread are overreacting IMO. Just ask yourself this: if this EXACT same scenario happened at an Obama press conference with a Fox News correspondent, would your position be the same?

    The good news is they fixed the problem by pulling his pass. He won't be allowed to emotionally scar women at the white house any longer. It's sad though that CNN and your ilk encourage him.

    He didn't accost her. She confronted him, she initiated contact, she invaded his personal space and she was trying to take something from him.

    While I personally wouldn't say she accosted him either, if there was fault in that situation, it was clearly hers, not his.

    The simple concept that you're being obtuse about is that a man used his physical dominance to prevent an innocent woman from doing her job.

    Yeah, absolutely no blowback expected from the president removing reporters who ask too many questions.

    Your political confusion is becoming obvious. I don't think you realize that this won't be going away anymore than Trump Jr. meeting Russian spies before the election.
