Good. He earned it.

That's one thing about Trump that's bothersome though. The man is the POTUS but he's so combative ALL the damn time people don't treat the office with respect.

If he sets foot on the White House grounds again, he has won, and the precedent has been set that you can forcibly lay hands on WH staff with no repercussions.

This is bad news. A free press asking tough questions is good, but allowing a guy who can't follow basic rules to force his way in is all bad.

The court also noted that the WH can create and enforce rules. You can be sure those will ready Monday.

Heard on news earlier, Trump said (paraphrasing) "if anyone gets out of hand at his press conference, I'll just cut it off and leave, and let the press handle the offender."

Acosta being an asshole....

Trump: "thank you, we are done here, you can thank Mr. Acosta for the brevity of this press conference." (walks out).

No. That is a bad strategy. Trump, or any president, should NOT get run out of his own press conference. I don't care if it's Obama, Bush, or Trump.....the President is the alpha dog, and if there's a disruption, the disrupter needs to be escorted out, just like they did with the Kavanaugh protesters.

Have the rules set on behavior. I'm sure mr "nice and considerate" acosta will be the first to break those rules.

Have him give up his press pass on camera and escort him out. If he balks, drag his worthless ass out. Light him up with a taser if necessary. Make an example out of him.

All I heard during the obuma years was "respect the office even if you don't like the person" from the democrats. Shoe is on the other foot, how 'bout the same?

Summary:

1) This is a temporary order, but still a loss for Trump. Acosta's triumphant return to the White House grounds will be a big victory for CNN and the anti-Trump media, and it will probably be headline news. He doesn't even need to ask a question or say a word. His presence will be a big F-U to Trump.


2) If I understand it correctly, the 'hard pass' is something Acosta applied and was vetted for, so maybe not unlike a driver's license. To pull it, there needs to be some due process, where Acosta can argue why the government should NOT take it away.

Is there some procedure for this kind of thing? If not, Team Trump better put one together, stat, before the final ruling comes out, that, it seem like they will lose, based on the TRO.

I'd show a video montage, greatest hits of Acosta clips where he's acting like a complete douchebag, ending with his outbursts at the N. Korea summit and his karate chopping of the intern, invite the rest of the WH press pool to be there, to report on it, then ask Acosta why he thinks he should keep his pass.

I don't know how this will shake out. If there aren't some current rules for journalists with 'hard passes,' that Acosta has violated, then any rules they dream up to say Acosta violated will be ex post facto, and wouldn't be a valid reason to pull the pass.

Just my $ .02's.

Maybe our resident backwoods country lawyer could weigh in on this?

Bill, itís like someone gets fired and they donít have an HR manual. They can get their job back. But guess what? That person is now target number one. Acosta is about 3 pressers away from permaban.
