    Which, according to others in the room, is a lie.

    Saw it coming as soon as Acosta phrased his question "I wanted to challenge you on...."

    Acosta does make himself the story. I just finished Ha Jin's "The Boat Rocker" about such a journalist and for the first time I gained some limited sympathy for that posture. But then there's the real boat rockers, like I F Stone. I think Acosta needs to rein in his ego.

    The other reporters have not really covered themselves in glory either. In their haste to ask their own 'penetrating' questions they leave Trump's meandering attack non-answers. I think that every time Trump evades answering a simple question, the next reporter should ask exactly the same question. And keep on till either Trump answers, blows up, or stalks off.

    All that said, I looked at the video. The young Trumpkina attacked Acosta grabbing the mike. Acosta grabbed the mike back. Looked fair to me given the high level of violent aggression the Trump aids are ordered to bring to these press events. Reviewing the tape convinced me that the claim that Acosta attacked is a false claim.

    It should be that simple, ask the same question or simply leave the press conference to Fox and friends.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Oh. I thought this WAS an animation of a thread.

    Man, speaking of doodles. Dang.

    Lately, I have been having an artist crisis. Moreso than usual. I just can’t. Every time I make an art, or a doodle, they get to about 83-96% complete and then destroyed or trashed.

    I have a total block. And, aside from being able to render things with a pen and pencil, I have very few marketable skills. Actually, the last little bit can probably stand alone.

    Peace,

    I saw the assault. Acosta said, "Pardon me, ma'am."

    Trump has made an example of Acosta, as well he should have. Trump and his press people should never have allowed things to get to this point. Acosta's credentials should have been revoked long ago. If CNN persists, the network should be barred entirely from POTUS press events. They don't have any particular right to be there.

    Accosta is getting sick and tired of being lied to SB. Trump and Hucaliar want him to believe them. If he reports the lies, Trump blames him for lying. Connect the dots! It isn't hard SB.

    What a putrid excuse for a human that two scoops is.
    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Sarah Sanders is the first Press Secretary in American history that requires Secret Service protection on account of threats to her person and family.

    Trump and Sanders tell lies that Sky Blue and the other members of his mob like to hear.

    Because someone accosted her at a restaurant! Did that person threaten her bodily harm? No! Sarah went whining to the president saying someone was mean to her, and she managed to get SS protection out of the deal. What a wussy!PS, she was ASKED to leave the restaurant SB, no threats.

    You want to make that the standard now, hey, fine with me. Somebody says you're "lying," you're now fair game for whatever. However you blokes want it.

    How about we deduct 10% from Sarah's paycheck for every verifiable lie that she tells?

    Make 'not lying' the new standard for press secretaries? Sounds like a fine idea. Urge your elected representatives to do that, Blooie.

    On some level I'm looking forward to the day when the pendulum swings and all of the new rules, all of the conduct now normalized by the "resistance" is turned around and brought to bear on the Democrats and their representatives.

    I don't think they're going to like being made to play by their own rules. They never are.

    Ninty five% of the resistance is from Trump and his WH goons and I'm being conservative!
