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.

Maricopa County No Longer Complying with Audit-Related Subpoenas

One official likened the audit to an “adventure in never-never land”.

Things are getting downright testy in Arizona this week, as a long-controversial electoral audit continues to spiral into chaos. The audit itself is taking stock of the results from the state’s most populous county, Maricopa County, and is being conducted by a private firm who seems to align themselves with the “Stop The Steal” movement.  Those who’ve witnessed the action up front tell varying tales of the results, with many wondering if a declaration of trouble by these audits could kick the figurative hornet’s nest of far-right extremists. Now, with a conclusion nearly imminent in Arizona, Maricopa County has begun to actively drag their feet. The Republican chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Monday rejected a new subpoena from Arizona state Senate Republicans, calling their partisan ballot review an “adventure in never-never land.” “It is now August of 2021. The election of November 2020 is over,” Jack Sellers, who leads the board that oversees elections in the county, wrote in a scathing letter. “If you haven’t figured out that the election in Maricopa County was free, fair, and accurate yet, I’m not sure you ever will.” He added: “The reason you haven’t finished your ‘audit’ is because you hired people who have no experience and little understanding of how professional elections are run.” The mainstream media has already concluded that there would be no value to the results of the audit, and have largely ignored the twists and turns of the tale.
