'You Ask a Lot of Stupid Questions'

  • John Legend criticized President Trump on Twitter Wednesday

Case in point, all day yesterday people like Nicholas Kristof, Ron Fournier, and many, many others were claiming the Jim Acosta video sent out by White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders had been "doctored". She's gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise and a contract with I think CNN.

Trump also had contentions exchanges with CNN political analyst April Ryan at the Wednesday presser, and on Friday he compared her to Acosta and said other reporters could have their passes revoked.

The New York Times urged the White House to reconsider Thursday in a column by the newspaper's editorial board headlined, "Let Jim Acosta do his job".

In his weekly column, published to his website Wednesday, before the White House announced action against the reporter, O'Reilly concluded that "the Trump administration would be in the right if it pulled Acosta's credentials".

Mr Trump appeared ready to walk out as Acosta clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president's views on a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the U.S. border.

Instead of answering the question, Trump said, "What a stupid question you asked".

Trump has similarly called CNN's Don Lemon the "dumbest man on television" and, after Lemon interviewed basketball star LeBron James, said in a tweet that the television anchor, who is black, "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do". "You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher", Mr Trump said. You shouldn't treat people that way...

Next on the docket was American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan - a "loser," according to the president. "He ignored majority", she said.

The White House earlier this week revoked Acosta's access credentials without any indication about if it would be reinstated. While Trump initially responded when Acosta asked about denuclearization, he refused to comment when Acosta pressed him on slain college student Otto Warmbier. Huckabee Sanders has been an ideal press secretary for Donald Trump: more composed and ready to play the martyr than Scaramucci and free of the sense of shame that sometimes held Sean Spicer back. "I think we deserve that". In the 1970s, President Nixon tried to get Washington Post reporters banned from the White House.

Sarah Sanders tweeted altered Acosta video.

CNN has been working behind the scenes on a resolution that would restore Acosta's pass. The White House News Photographers Association has called the footage "deceptive, dangerous, and unethical", and of course, if true, such a manipulation would be an egregious violation of governmental and journalistic practices.

An aide attempted to grab the microphone from Acosta, who nevertheless trued to shout out one last question.

Acosta asked very few actual questions during his exchange with Trump.

Trump told @Yamiche her question was "racist". "I had a question to ask", he told CNN's Jake Tapper. Rather, he said he saw him holding on to the microphone as she reached for it. Then again, there's always Twitter to check on Acosta's "dear diary/mirror, mirror" entries. "I will continue to ask the questions that affect America, all of America".
