Acosta’s Bad Behavior Spawns New Rules for White House Decorum

Let’s see if Jim Acosta can behave now that we’ve written the rules down for him.

Just days ago, we witnessed one of the most ugly and egregious bits of journalistic behavior to ever disgrace the White House from CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Acosta, who has staked the future of his career on annoying the President into flying off the handle, recently found himself in a scuffle with a young, female White House intern who was following the Commander in Chief’s orders to remove a microphone from the CNN mainstay.  The look on her face says it all.

Clearly, the strength that Acosta used to accost this young lady spooked her, as you can tell by her reaction.  She even looks to President Trump for help.

Now, after this incident, the White House has been forced to tighten the rules for reporters to avoid an escalation of behavior from here.

1. A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;

2. At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will then yield the floor;

3. “Yielding the floor” includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff for use by the next questioner;

4. Failure to abide by any of rules (1)-(3) may result in suspension or revocation of the journalist’s hard pass.

Of course, these were already the unwritten rules of the White House press corps, much like an egregious bat flip after a home run might get you plunked with a pitch the next time you’re up to bat.

Acosta, like the child who needs attention at someone else’s party, has forced us to spell it all out for him.

Biden Invokes ‘Santa Claus’ in Bizarre Supply Chain Commentary

This, while taking no responsibility whatsoever for the ever-worsening consumer crisis facing Americans.

Published

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden has a way with words.  What is surprising is just which way he often chooses to go with his words.

This week was no different, as the Commander in Chief continues to struggle with criticisms of his handling of the ongoing supply chain crisis that threatens to leave the underside of many an American Christmas tree bare.

President Joe Biden tried to distance himself from supply chain disruptions this Christmas, telling Americans on Wednesday he was not responsible for any problems.

He then decided to bring Santa Claus into it for some reason.

“I can’t promise that every person will get every gift they want on time,” Biden said. “Only Santa Claus can keep that promise.”

Biden argued that shortages for some goods around Christmas were normal, citing the Cabbage Patch Kids doll shortage in the 1980s and also the shortage of Beanie Babies in past years.

But then the President simply downplayed the issues entirely, attempting to neutralize his critics.

“Here’s the deal. For the vast majority of the country, that’s not happening,” Biden said.

Then, in a statement that will surely make some CNBC pundits’ heads spin, the President suggested that the current rate of inflation was “natural”, and a byproduct of the global economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
