The kerfuffle happened after Acosta asked the President a follow-up question about the caravan of migrants approaching the United States’ border with Mexico. The President said “That’s enough,” and Acosta resisted as a young woman who works as a White House intern tried to remove the microphone from Acosta’s hand.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement barring Acosta from future briefings and accusing him of “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” She called it “absolutely unacceptable.”
Lamestream reporters are defending their oafish colleague by calling on a widespread boycott of briefings until Acosta’s White House press pass is reinstated.
Our take? It’s well-known that Acosta is—pardon our French—an asshole. Good riddance.
