There is already established precedent. Seems pretty cut and dry given the context. You never know with the courts though.
I can see it both ways. Granted, when someone else is called on, do you get to continue shouting over her with no repercussions?

Way I see it, CNN is free to send someone else.

Does Trump get to continue being king of the snowflakes with no repercussions?

In your eyes he does.

It wasnít a hard question to answer.

Hear hear.  Funny thing- My wife and I lived in the Germantown neighborhood in Philly, a few blocks from Chelten Ave.  It's a majority black neighborhood (8:1), as you go south below Chelten.  The first year we were there going to the library on Chelten, my wife got called a snowflake, but it was because we are white.  She was so pissed.  It was the only time we ever heard the reference until the last few years.  Different connotation, but it pisses us off just as much.

Letís be honest. Name calling is for children. And Trump regularly resorts to name calling instead of answering questions he doesnít like.

As sad as it is, Iíd rather he go back into hiding where he doesnít hold press conferences. Iím tired of hearing the obsurd excuses people make up to account for the manís inability to speak intelligently and concisely. This situation is case and point. Trump was speaking over Acosta from nearly the get go. Trump has it out for Acosta and the question being a tough one was more than he could take.

If Trump is able to simply ban reporters whose questions he doesn't like, we will have a press room full of sycophants. The administration tried to bolster its case by spreading a clearly doctored video taken from infowars, one of the most notorious conspiracy theory sites out there.

And the rest of the press conference? Calling PBS' Alcindor's question about white nationalism "racist" (after Trump states that he considers himself a nationalist") and then lying about his support among African-Americans?

** Forgot to add: this is in the context of the FBI reporting yesterday a 17 percent increase in hate crimes in the US, including signifcant rises in anti-Semitic and anti-Hispanic crimes. The report acknowledges that it only counts hate crimes reproted to the FBI, and may be undercounting them by a factor of 40.

How about tweeting that the fires in California are the result of gross mismanagement, when they are not related to forest management?

On a related note, I spent time on my bus ride to work this morning (which was longer than usual because it's damn cold and raining) wathcing this: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/12/opinion/russia-meddling-disinformation-fake-news-elections.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage. It's three parts of about 15 minutes each, and discusses Russian (and other) attempts at disinformation. Where does it end up? You guessed it: the current administration. The term "useful idiot" is a technical term, but well applied in the series.

Porn lawyer was arrested last night. Domestic abuse I believe it was. So much for that 2020 run for him.

Accusations of sexual assault sure didn't stop the current president! Or his SC pick!
