Trump Makes BOLD Claim As Acosta Drama Moves to Court

The media is missing the point here entirely, and the President is ready to prove it to them.

While CNN and others continue to harp on the suspension of Jim Acosta’s White House press credential over his accosting of a young intern in the East Room, a great many presidential precedents are being set.

Of course, this has been a White House unafraid of ruffling the feathers of the mainstream media, who they recognize as the entertainment-driven enterprises that they are.  (After all, before becoming President, Donald Trump was up to his elbows in the media for decades…let’s not pretend that he isn’t keenly aware of their inner workings).

Now, as CNN and Fox News team up to take the White House to court over the Acosta affair, President Trump is making some bold moves of his own.

Donald Trump sought Wednesday to land a massive blow in his long-fought battle against the news media, with administration lawyers asserting in court that the president could bar “all reporters” from the White House complex for any reason he sees fit.

The sweeping claim, which came in the first public hearing over CNN’s lawsuit to restore correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House credentials, could have a dramatic impact on news organizations’ access to government officials if it is upheld in court.

CNN argued in its lawsuit filed Tuesday that the White House infringed on Acosta’s First Amendment rights by revoking his access in response to a dispute over a press conference last week.

POTUS wasn’t having it.

But Trump’s lawyers replied Wednesday in a legal filing that he has “broad discretion” to police journalists’ access to the White House.

“If the president wants to exclude all reporters from the White House grounds, he has the authority to do that,” Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Burnham said during the hearing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. “There’s no First Amendment right.”

And while all Americans should be in favor of a free and unimpeded press, that doesn’t mean that every single American is capable of being a journalist with access to the White House.

This ins’t about the press as a whole losing access to the White House, but rather about the inexcusable actions of Jim Acosta…and that’s the point that the media is missing.

Despite promising results for COVID-19 vaccines from pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna, Levine cited the need to ration them in three phases as a reason for extended preventative measures, according to Penn Live. Levine said, “We anticipate we’re going to be rolling this out through the winter and then into the spring and into the summer. It could take a significant amount of time to immunize everyone in Pennsylvania. I anticipate we’re going to be wearing masks well into 2021, maybe to the end of 2021.”

Not A Joke: AOC, Fauci, & Andrew Cuomo Nominated for ‘Person of the Year’ By TIME

Is this real life?

You’d think this would be an article posted by The Babylon Bee. After all, it literally makes zero sense to have AOC, Fauci, and Cuomo nominated for “person of the year.” It’s almost blasphemous, at this point. All three liberal radicals have done nothing to help their state or country – and that’s the way they like it. From New York Post: Dr. Anthony Fauci and the essential workers who have labored throughout the coronavirus pandemic are tied neck-and-neck as key nominees for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award, a list on which New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have also landed. The annual poll opened on Wednesday and pulls from reader vote submissions, as individuals are required to vote “yes” or “no” when asked whether or not a specific nominee should be chosen as the overall award winner. […] Other nominees include artists Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and one-time presidential candidate, rapper Kanye West. Georgia politico Stacey Abrams, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr’s names similarly got a nod, as well as American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the NBA’s Lebron James and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Is this real life? Would any of these people earn your vote?
