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.

Nancy Pelosi goes to get her hair done, but nobody else can. Gavin Newsom attends a fancy dinner, but nobody else can. Now, Democrat Governor Phil Murphy has been caught being a hypocrite, too. What is it with these Dems, thinking the rules don’t apply to them? Do they genuinely believe “Do as I say, not as I do?” Unreal, man. WATCH: https://twitter.com/zerosum24/status/1330682230100930562?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1330682230100930562%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F More on Murphy and New Jersey, via Fox News: Howell Township, New Jersey, Police Chief Andrew Kudrick Jr. told “Fox & Friends Weekend” that his department will not enforce Gov. Phil Murphy’s “draconian” coronavirus guidelines for the holidays. Murphy, a Democrat, has called for a 10-person limit for in-household gatherings. “Our community is hurting,” Kudrick said. “I live here. I grew up here. I shop here. I go out to dinner here. And I talk one-on-one with our business owners… and I see how much they’re hurting.” Recall him, New Jersey!

Black Lives Matter Wants Biden to Begin ‘Roadmap’ Toward Abolishing Prisons & Police

Don’t forget about reparations!

They should really change the name to “criminal lives matter.” That’s what BLM stands for. That’s who they represent. With their latest statement, the organization is making it known that lawbreakers should be allowed to roam the streets without fear of being arrested. What a message to send. Keep this up, BLM, and the GOP will retain the Senate and take the House in 2022. From The Daily Wire: Despite indications that the “Defund the Police” movement had a negative impact on Democrats’ election success, leaders of Black Lives Matter are petitioning for a meeting with an incoming Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, and demanding that Biden support the “BREATHE Act,” which includes a “roadmap’ to abolishing law enforcement and a demand for reparations. The Act, which BLM touts as “a radical reimagining of public safety, community care, and how we spend money as a society,” is its central legislative effort, and represents a list of demands that align only with the aims of far-left legislators. Continued: But, Fox News reports that BLM’s founders, including self-identified Marxist Patrisse Cullors, and their “Squad” allies in Congress — notably Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — are pressing for the BREATHE Act to pass Congress and receive a rubber stamp from any Biden White House. Black Lives Matter and Antifa radicals have no intention of slowing down. They’re just going to keep ramping up the violence. Like a middle child, these babies clearly crave attention. But how much longer can police officers put up with the harassment and threats? How much longer will liberal “leaders” allow these acts of aggression to continue?
