He's out of control.

The White House revoked CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press credentials then used a doctored video clip to justify it, and now Donald Trump is threatening to yank more press passes. The scandal-plagued president on Friday demanded more “respect” from reporters.

“I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man,” Trump said of the CNN reporter.

When asked how long Acosta’s press credentials will be suspended, Trump said, “As far as I’m concerned, I haven’t made that decision. But it could be others also.”

Trump then called April Ryan a “loser” who “doesn’t know what the hell she is doing.” Trump also called her “nasty.”


Trump, for the record, frequently targets women and black people but we’re sure it’s just a coincidence that he ripped a black female reporter.

Trump also denied the claims that the video tweeted out by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Slanders of the Acosta incident was doctored or manipulated. “Nobody manipulated, give me a break. That is dishonest reporting,” he insisted. “All that was was a close up.”

However, an expert who looked at the video says that it was altered.

Acosta has long been an adversary of the White House and Trump does not like being challenged.

Others who work in the field of video editing have weighed in.

The video was sped up to make Acosta look aggressive when it was actually the White House intern who instigated the incident by repeatedly grabbing the CNN reporter’s mic. April Ryan is an accomplished woman who was named “Journalist of the Year” by the National Association of Black Journalists in 2017. In contrast, Trump is a former reality show star who somehow once bankrupted a casino.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
