The United States Secret Service took away CNN’s Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” late on Wednesday after the professional provocateur pulled another obnoxious stunt during a White House press conference.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit,” Acosta wrote on Twitter.

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a tweet. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”

“Contrary to CNN’s assertions, there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today,” Sanders continued. “Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question.”

When Acosta showed up to the White House the Secret Service took his credentials.

WATCH:

“The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration,” Sanders continued. “As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice.”

Acosta responded to Sanders’ tweets by claiming it was a “lie.”

Video evidence of the incident shows that Acosta is the one lying, as he clearly touched the young woman, as Sanders correctly stated.

    If one of my employees had ever behaved in a manner similar to acosta’s, they would have been looking for a new job the next morning. Tells us a lot about what kind of company cnn is! President Trump has shown an inordinate amount of patience and restraint.

      Communist News Network!! Enough said?? It is about time that this pig was thrown out of the WH. He should be charged with battery and have a permanent restraining order filed against him.

      I NEVER watch/listen to CNN, they shape the “news” to their PERSONAL opinions, NOT THE FACTS!! Acosta is an example of how biased, rude, crude & ill mannered jerks Sara has to put up with. Proud of Sara for turning him off, hopefully it will be permanent!!!

      I agree, President Trump has been extremely patient with the attention seeking monger Jim Acosta. he just wants attention and CNN needs to fire him. ASAP! He just tries to agitate and take up time so others cannot ask questions.

    Acosta says “it’s a lie” that he touched the intern. For a person in the broadcasting business, he is a fool thinking the cameras missed him pushing the interns arm away. What a pompous moron!

    Suspend Jim Acosta permanently,,,this guy is a trouble maker that continuously causes disruption at the WH Press Conference. The American People Deserve To hear a fair and balanced question and answer session with our President to find out what our Government has accomplished. Not a bunch of out of controlled want-a-be journalists that rather cause a scene then get real facts that the people are looking for.
    Mr. President start setting law and order at press conference and take control of the out of control press.

    GOOD RIDDANCE!
    It is way past time. I have said the president should take his press pass repeatedly in comments.
    This way is much better. Now let’s see how the feminist deal with the reasoning. LOL
    He certainly disrespected that woman’s authority.

        You better read the statue for assault Kirs. You don’t have to hurt someone all you have to do is put your hands on them in an aggressive manner. He did do that by pushing her arm away. I would not recommend she do that but if it were done to a democrat by a conservatives I could see them doing something very that stupid and getting a conviction with the right judge.

    Now that Jimbo is out, April Ryan will be the major irritant for CNN. She is brash, pushy, obnoxious and is as racist and hateful as they come. President Trump told her to sit down at the Press Briefing today.

  19. Preston Jemmott

    November 8, 2018 at 6:08 am

    Not only was it time but way past time for him to go. If it had been a Democratic intern and a conservative reporter their would have already been a assault charge filed.

    November 8, 2018 at 6:12 am

    I think he’ll get his credentials and pass back because he’s the gift that keeps on giving as the perfect example of why we shouldn’t like or trust the media. His presence and obnoxiousness on constant display is a real benefit to Pres. Trump.

    I echo everyone else’s remarks above – Acosta is an ass. PERIOD. His being booted from the Press Room is long overdue, but who in hell really cares, anyway? No sensible or intelligent person watches that pathetic network anymore, anyway! Ted Turner must be throwing up at this point in time.

    Do you expect from communist even in the media they will lie and deceive misrepresent and to see the American people of real truth, while they are the people who are creating the massive problems in this country. I’m getting tired of the communist press always are claiming that Trump is trying to suppress their voice, while the press has no problem trying to suppress my right which is the only ride of the first 10 amendments that says if she’ll not be infringed a bike ride to protect myself my family my property so I think Trump should pass laws did go after the media when they lie and deceive and miss represent and deceive the American people

    ABOUT TIME!
    He has consistently failed to maintain decorum, and disrespects other reports by failing to pass the microphone. He is openly disrespectful to other reporters, and to the president. CNN should be told that they will no longer have access to White House functions if they don’t put a stop to such actions by their reporters.

      November 8, 2018 at 2:06 pm

      Trump has allowed it because Acosta’s behavior makes The argument for DJT about #fakenews & #enemyofthepeople. You are right about CNN, they not only allow this behavior you can see they encourage it. Just look @ Don Lemon and others behavior on their staff. The Constitution allows for a “FREE PRESS”, but says nothing about a “FREAK PRESS”. TRUMP should pull CNN’s FCC License, nothing says a “FASCIST PROPAGANDA CELL” should have the right to Broadcast in the USA!

        You are wrong. They have every right to say/broadcast anything they want. We don’t have to listen to it. We can’t advocate limiting their rights at the same time we are complaining that they are trying to do it to us.

    Jim, its not a lie the proof is right there for the world to see. Your first response should have been “Im sorry”, but instead you said “it’s a lie”. Its not that hard to be a nice person, drop the hate for our president and behave like a grownup and things will go a lot smoother.

    I wanted to find out if Jim’s response to sara’s statement on suspending him was true or not so I came here to find out. It said his response was a lie so now I know it was the truth. Only the president can put his hands on a woman, no one else. I can grab them by the pussy, said the president. Apparently that’s acceptable. I saw pictures showing Jim didn’t touch that woman but I guess they were photo shopped. The president’s fingers have an incriminating smell to them but that doesn’t matter. The white house woman was grabbing at Jim’s mike and if Jim’s hands inadvertently touched this woman, it was because she was grabbing at him first and he was trying to get away. Your president’s fingers have the smell of guilt on them, yet you let that go. You people try to lick the president’s fingers clean but he’s guilty. I’m sure if you smelled sarah she would have the scent of the president’s fingers on her even though she let you people try to lick it off. His presidency is an abomination as well as his supporters.

      That Young Lady’s JOB was to take the mic and bring it to the next reporter the President called on.
      Acosta not only pushed her hand away, He refused to relinqush the mic when told to do so.

I suspect she and the witch’s coven of bat shit crazy Maxine Waters,lying Diane Feinstein, the beltway barnacle Nancy Pelosi all meet in their local cesspool and dream up more bullshit & misdirection for those millions of illegal aliens their families and those self serving egotistical smart ass’s in Hollywood.And what in hell is the “presidents fingers having a incriminating smell” mean?This ding bat either is too stupid and out of touch that she thinks slick Willy shoving his cigars into a White house interns vagina is normal? Or that no fewer than 12 elected democratic have used the American taxpayer dollars to pay fines for their inappropriate sexual misdoings.Millions of our dollars for elected democratic slimy behind doors activities.

    Jim Acosta was late again for President Trump’s press conference today after he stared at himself lovingly in the mirror for a full three hours.

    “I usually get up early enough to stare at myself for a couple hours at least, but I was running behind,” he told reporters later. “Then I just kept looking into my eyes and thinking about how brave and powerful and smart I am, and I just lost track of… man, I really am courageous aren’t I? Wait, what was I talking about again?”

    At publishing time, Acosta was spotted staring at himself in a really shiny store window for nearly an hour.

    Jim Acosta had his press credentials being taken away deservedly so by the Secret Service for his inappropriate immature hateful behavior at the Presidential Press Conference yesterday. He was nasty, rude and impolite to the President of the United States, President Trump. This behavior plus his rudeness and violent vicious treatment to one of the President young staffer who’s job is to move the microphone along from reporter to reporter he snapped away and pushed her arm away.

    Acosta should be ashamed of himself. In the video you can clearly that he forcibly pushes her arm down to keep her from grabbing the mic. If that is not touching her then we should all be able to slap him across the face and have no repercussions what so ever. What a lying dirt-bag Acosta is.
