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.

BOMBSHELL: Expert Confirms Google Swung Upwards of 10.5 Million Votes to Hillary In 2016

Everyone should be outraged. This is WRONG!

At least 2.6 million votes went for Hillary Clinton that probably otherwise wouldn’t have. At least. That number might jump to over 10 million. The funniest part is that Donald Trump still won. WATCH: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1151614617556328448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151614617556328448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F426323-ted-cruz-calls-out-how-google-swung-millions-of-votes-toward-hillary-clinton-in-2016%2F Conservatives may want to begin boycotting Google if they haven’t already. The anti-conservative bias the outlet has shown on a daily basis since the 2016 election is otherworldly. President Trump appeared on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo to share his thoughts after Google admitted they want to keep POTUS from winning in 2020. Partial transcript, via Right Scoop: TRUMP: You saw what happened yesterday with Google. Google was totally biased, like you know they talk about Russia, because they have some bloggers. And by the way some of those bloggers were going both ways they were for Clinton and for Trump. MARIA: Well somebody at Google said they what happened in 2016 to happen in 2020. They don’t want it to happen again. TRUMP: Let me tell you, they’re trying to rig the election. That’s what we should be looking at, not the phony witch hunt. This is the greatest political disgrace in history… … TRUMP: They should be sued. What’s happening with the bias, and now you see it with that executive yesterday from Google the hatred for Republicans. It’s not even like let’s lean democrat. The hatred. And actually I heard that all during my election. They were swamping us with negative stuff.

We have sacrificed privacy for convenience in the early Internet Age, much like we sacrificed freedom for security in the immediate wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Miss Michigan Is ‘Proud’ Trump Supporter, So She Was Just STRIPPED Of Her Title Over ‘Tweets’

But conservatives are the FASCISTS, right?

Kathy Zhu lost the title of Miss Michigan because she’s a proud conservative. She supports President Trump. And that is NOT allowed! Her tweets: Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive. They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and “insensitive” statistical tweets. https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/1152044590645616640?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152044590645616640&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F These are the text message exchanges between the state director and me. https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/1152044900407549952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152044900407549952&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Conservative & Proud https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/943574703834324992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E943574703834324992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Get at us. #TurningPointUSA #SocialismKills https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/925021169702637568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E925021169702637568&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Kitty Trump #MAGA 🇺🇸 https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/921196764950093824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E921196764950093824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F More about Zhu, circa 2018, per Campus Reform: Kathy Zhu, a freshman student at the University of Central Florida (UCF), recently faced a Twitter campaign calling for her expulsion after she critically questioned a “try on a hijab” event on campus. On February 1, Zhu was walking across campus when she noticed the Muslim Student Association (MSA) promoting World Hijab Day, an annual event held by Muslims across the globe to “foster religious tolerance and understanding by inviting women to experience the hijab for one day.” In a video posted on Zhu’s twitter account, Zhu explains that the MSA had organized a booth with a banner that stated “Try on a hijab,” along with signs that stated “My hijab empowers me,” and “My hijab is a symbol of understanding.” Here was her tweet: H/T: Twitchy
