CNN’s Jim Acosta may be the most biased Trump hater in the media.
But on Wednesday he crossed the line.
And Sarah Huckabee Sanders stepped in.
Acosta caused a blowup when he acted like barroom drunk during a White House press conference.
He asked Trump two questions, and after Trump answered he tried to move to other reporters.
But Acosta would not yield the microphone.
So a female White House press aide did her job and tried to retrieve the microphone to give to another reporter.
At that point in time it looked like Acosta allegedly karate chopped her arm.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted out a video of Acotsa allegedly assaulting the female White House intern.
We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video. pic.twitter.com/T8X1Ng912y

But the White House could not let this stand.
When Acosta showed up the White House for a TV appearance later that night he was informed Sanders banned him from the grounds and revoked his credentials.
The Hollywood reporters writes:
The White House is suspending CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” for what press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deemed “absolutely unacceptable” conduct in a statement Wednesday night.
“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta wrote on Twitter. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.” (He posted a video of a Secret Service agent asking for his pass.)
Sanders announced the punishment in a lengthy statement Wednesday night, several hours after Acosta clashed with President Donald Trump during a feisty press conference.
Reporters think because they are journalists no laws or standards of common decency apply to them.
They lecture Americans about how they are more important than anyone else.
Many Americans believe so-called “journalists” need a reminder that although their job is protected by the First Amendment, basic manners and common decency apply.
