Like him or not, you always know where President Donald Trump is because he speaks what’s on his mind and for the most part, he speaks the truth.
The problem is, Democrats, the mainstream media and RINOs don’t like the truth because it goes against everything they stand for.
I had the opportunity to serve on a committee with former Sen. Barry Goldwater and that is what I admired about the man, was his insistence on speaking the blunt truth no matter who didn’t like it.
In a recent interview, Trump expressed more of his blunt truth when he mentioned about possibly revoking the press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta, Barack Obama, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and more.
Fox News – Trump, in exclusive interview, speaks on Acosta, reveals Obama’s private guidance on greatest US threat – President Trump, speaking exclusively to Fox News’ Chris Wallace in a wide-ranging interview, revealed what President Obama told him was the biggest challenge facing the U.S., discussed pending high-level departures from his administration and admitted that he occasionally enjoys calling on CNN reporter Jim Acosta.
“Actually I like to do it, but in many cases I don’t,” Trump acknowledged. In ruling that the administration temporarily has to restore Acosta’s White House access pass on Fifth Amendment due process grounds, federal judge Timothy J. Kelly noted that Trump could simply choose to ignore the combative reporter. (Kelly, in his preliminary decision, did not rule on CNN’s First Amendment claim.)
But Trump, speaking to Wallace, floated another idea for handling Acosta, who frequently spars with the president at length during press conferences.
“I think one of the things we’ll do is maybe turn the camera off that faces them, because then they don’t have any air time, although I’ll probably be sued for that and maybe, you know, win or lose it, who knows,” Trump mused. “I mean, with this stuff you never know what’s going to happen.” …
Trump referred to Acosta as ‘unbelievably rude’ and that they are working on rules and regulations to government the conduct of reporters.
Under those new rules, if Acosta behaves according to how he has in the past, that he will either be escorted out or the press conference would be stopped immediately.
This is needed because many Democrats have forgotten many of their manners and believe that that they can somehow accomplish their goals by being excessively rude and disruptive.
Frankly, I would have tossed Acosta out ages ago and never let him back in until he learned respect and manners.
