Judge Tim Kelly, a Trump nominee in 2017, ruled that the White House must reinstate lil Jimmy’s press pass. Although Acosta is a poor excuse for a journalist, Kelly ruled his 1st Amendment rights trump the White House’s desire for orderly press conferences. There is no need for Trump to ever call on him again but we know Jim will scream and kick, like a toddler, until he gets his attention.
What may be surprising to some is that FOX News also joined in and backed lil Jimmy’s temper tantrum. Here is FOX’s statement, via the Daily Caller:
“FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”
FOX News isn’t on a good path as of late, for conservatives. Their election coverage was pathetic and the number of NeverTrumpers working there seems to be coming to light. Remember when Obama attacked the press? Heck, he even spied on them and somehow they all still roll out the red carpet for him.
Next time Acosta shows up at a press conference and shouts a question, President Trump should just toss him a pacifier and tell him it’s nap time…then watch the tantrum ensue.
