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.

Save conservative media!

City Unanimously Rejects US Flag Mural In Front of State House, But Pushes Through BLM Artwork

Ah. Okay, then.

Is 2020 over yet? Is 2021 going to be worse? If Joe Biden is elected president, it is certainly possible – but dang. This year has been a trip and it’s only halfway through. Just wait until we get closer to the election. It’s gonna be fireworks. From TDW: The city council for Montpelier, Vermont unanimously rejected a petition to paint an American flag and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in front of the Vermont State House. The city council made its decision in a contentious Wednesday night meeting where the members heard arguments for the murals from GOP gubernatorial candidate John Klar and several other supporters. Klar wanted to paint the flag on one side of an existing “Black Lives Matter” motto on the street, and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in red, white, and blue painted on the other side.

Black College Student Finds Racist Notes On His Car, Evidence Shows He Planted Them Himself

How many race hoaxes does this make, now?

Race hoax, race hoax, where for art thou race hoax? It’s hilarious to think that some people believe they’ll get away with acts of nonsense like this, attempting to blame an entire group of people over something that never happened. If Texas A&M had a spine, they would expel this student on the spot. But they won’t. It would be bad press. From The Daily Wire: In late June, Texas A&M University student Isaih Martin made headlines after he said he found racist notes on the windshield of his car. […] Late last week, Texas A&M police closed the investigation. Just as in nearly every other instance of an alleged hate crime like this, police determined that the accuser was responsible for the notes. […] Police said there were no cameras to clearly capture what happened, but nearby surveillance footage showed only a few people walking near Martin’s car during that time frame, none of whom were near the car long enough to post the notes. […] Police said that “based on video evidence, no other person had enough time to place the messages on Martin`s car other than himself.” How about them apples? The worst part is that the guy will most likely never have to answer for his crime. What kind of life lesson is that?
