One piece of paper made CNN realize suing Donald Trump was the biggest mistake of their life

Fake news CNN’s war on Donald Trump rages on.

CNN escalated their attacks on the White House by filing one outrageous lawsuit.

But they quickly realized it was the biggest mistake the network ever made.

CNN cheered when a federal judge granted a two week temporary restraining order restoring fake news reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.

The administration yanked his pass after Acosta disrupted a press conference and karate chopped an intern’s arm as she attempted to give the microphone to another reporter.

The judge ruled the administration violated Acosta’s Fifth Amendment right to due process, but did not rule on the First Amendment issues.

The White House responded with a letter informing CNN that Acosta’s press pass would only be restored for the two week period covered by the restraining order.

The Daily Caller reports:

The White House sent a letter to Acosta notifying him that his pass granting him temporary access to the White House grounds would be suspended after a temporary restraining order runs its course. The letter is the latest in the fight between the White House and the CNN reporter who caused a fracas at a recent presidential press conference when he refused to give up the microphone.

Judge Timothy J. Kelly issued an injunction Friday morning ordering the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials, saying his Fifth Amendment right to due process was violated. The judge was clear, however, that he made no ruling on whether the First Amendment right applies for any reporter to be at the White House.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders presaged the letter in a Friday statement warning Acosta, “in response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter’s hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. There must be decorum at the White House.”

The White House pulled Acosta’s press pass nearly two weeks ago, alleging that he behaved in an unruly manner during the presidential press conference and put his hands on an intern assigned to take the microphone away from him.

CNN’s lawsuit backfired on two fronts.

First, the Judge left the door open to saying the White House can yank press passes for violations of established procedures.

And the White House’s letter to CNN is setting up a paper trail to detail Acosta’s offenses so they can remove his pass without being tied up in court.

Second, fake news reporters now realize there will be official guidelines covering their behavior and they will be on notice.

If they act rudely or disrespectfully, there will be a process in place to kick them out.

CNN’s big “win” could turn out to be the fake news media’s biggest defeat.

  1. What are we supposed to do to “punish” another nation’s Crown Prince? Don’t you think we would consider it “none of their business” if another nation decided to “punish” President Bill Clinton for misbehaving in our oval office, or even President Trump for possible “picadillos” some 10-20 years ago? Come on,for heaven’s sake, use some common sense.

  2. Craig S Burchfiel,
    The “zee” you just replied is a fraud liberal idiot! Someone angry at the real conservative “zee” for who knows what! Anytime you see crap like this it is not from the real zee.

  3. Randy Miller, I feel for you with what is going on down there. I am holding my breath that something good will happen to take care of that hoard of people who are far from home, where they should be (go home people). You and yours stay safe and keep your blood pressure as low as possible. Thank you for sharing what you are going through with all of us who care.

  4. M Thank you. I will pay closer attention in the future. But, keep in mind I am a pissed off man in southern CA. (15 miles north of the Tijuana border and I am PISSED!) So, at this moment, I am easily angered.

  5. Randy Miller, I am sorry to tell you but that “zee” you just replied to is a fraud. The real Zee believes like you and I do. That is one of the freak trolls trying to get people to harass the real zee. If and when I figure out who that is well, just wait and see what is coming!

  6. How the F@@K do you expect him to act “Presidential” when you Liberals can’t even act honestly or civil? The man is doing an awesome job given all the sh#t he has to deal with from people like YOU! Shut the F##K UP! Let him do his job WITHOUT OBSTRUCTION and you will live in a better world! I do not care how much Soros pay’s you.

  7. JD, Fact: DJT called “fake news” the enemy of the people.
    Fact: Conservative Republicans are not cult followers. This nation
    finally has a real leader and we are working to make your life
    better, in spite of your resistance.
    Fact: All DJT ever wanted from the press was a fair shake which, they
    never gave him. They press belongs body and soul to Dem libs.
    Fact: Not attempting to control the media, Dem libs are delusional.

    You really have serious mental issues if you see your “early warning signs of fascism” with President Trump. You brain is rotting and being eaten away by all the corruption you are assimilating into it. You have lost all touch with reality. You will probably expire soon and go to meet your savior, and I don’t mean the one true God!
    All of a sudden I am over replying to you. I know you inside and out now and, it is not a pretty sight. You don’t have anything to contribute to my life or anybody else’s life. In fact you make me feel sad for you, so sad.

  8. But Kep. you are already ARE the cult faction of the GOP – – calling all other sources of information “fake news” – – the cult leader’s word is all. EVEN Trump joked about that – – when he said that if he murdered someone in broad daylight on 5th avenue, you would still support him. Trump always like to brag how he suckers people, even mocking Hannity.

  9. No M, you are the upset cult follower – – if you skip the Acosta part, look how Trump treated the rest of the press, how he has called the press (which includes Fox too, I guess) as “the enemy of people,” – – those are the exact policies of Nazi German – – control of the press. You need to see and try to face the signs of fascism:
    EARLY WARNING SIGNS OF FASCISM
    1. Powerful and continuing nationalism
    2. Disdain for human rights
    3. Identification of enemies as a unifying cause
    4. Rampant sexism
    5. Controlled mass media
    6. Obsession with national security
    7. Religion and government intertwined
    8. Corporate power protected
    9. Labor power suppressed
    10. Disdain for intellectual and the arts
    11. Obsession with crime and punishment
    12. Rampant cronyism and corruption

  10. zee, You are definitely not zee! Well, maybe you come from an alternate universe and dimension and are a crazy liberal named zee in that realm. You don’t belong here!

  11. What a perfect fascist thing to say, Marvin! Scott27 is right, when you add the white supremacy of Nazis, how neo-Nazis think Trump is one of them, and all the other signs of fascism, better re-read history of WWII.

  12. where is the wall and the tax returns as promised? What about killing the ACA? What about him acting presidential, which he does not do?

  13. The White House should have had Jim Acosta arrested for assault immediately and the intern should file a law suit against him and CNN for the incident.

  14. Fake News article – – CNN won both measures and were backed by Fox and 13 other news agencies who backed CNN.

    Want more proof that Trump has been compromised by both Putin AND Saudi Arabian money to Trump properties? Just announced even though evidence shows Saudi Arabia brutally murdered and dismembered an American journalist and news reports:”Trump signals US won’t punish Saudi crown prince over Khashoggi killing (headline)”!!!
