Harassing the President and hogging the mic is hardly "doing his job" by any reasonable interpretation.
 


Is Acosta one of your neo Marxists? Lay a little conspiracy down for us.

So it begins.

White House Releases Doctored Video

 

Why did the White House feel like they had to go fetch a doctored video from the White Supremacist web site Infowars and release it as " evidence " surrounding a false narrative of Acosta " assaulting " a member of the White House staff?

 

Should Sanders be fired for this?

 

I think she should.

Ummmm - attractive young woman seated in the front row leaps up to grap the mike from a donny detractor and donny relies on InfoWars for a photoshop of the evidence to support pulling the guys press pass?

1. Who is she and what was she doing grabbing the mike?

2. Who decided she'd be seated in the best possible location for mike grabbing?

3. Did lil donny promis to pay her legal fees if she smacked the guy? Or (more likely) did he promise to FIRE her if she DIDN'T get into a confrontation?

4. Does donny grab anthing of her's while off camera and is it covered by a NDA?


1. As I understand it, it was her job to move the mic from person to person.

2. She would naturally be in such a position to do her job.

3. Offensive and childish.

4. Offensive and hate-filled.

"This was followed by revoking Acosta’s access to the White House."

Good. Trump was mad with reason. When that young lady tried to get the mick from Acosta I sure felt for her..it told a lot about Acosta and why he was banned from the WH .

I saw what happened and thanks for the thread.

LOL thanks for that.

 

Of course the righties here are collectively chanting "I can't hear you, I see nothing!" while clapping their hands over their eyes and ears. 

 

Which they only stop doing long enough to type some more fact-free blather about the "attack."

White House Releases Doctored Video

 

 

Here’s Sanders sharing the doctored video.

We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video.

 
 

 

If you watch the doctored video it’s quite clear that part of it is accelerated to make it look like Acosta is “chopping” at the intern.

 

Helpfully, a guy from Slate actually did a side by side where you can see the doctoring quite closely.

The intern's reach for the mic is slowed down, and the "chop" motion is accelerated. Here's an annotated side by side comparison:

Further analysis: video is absolutely doctored. You can see the edit when the clips are side by side and slowed down to quarter speed. See for yourself: pic.twitter.com/4ZZrzhislg
