Out Of Control Trump Refuses To Allow CNN’s Jim Acosta Back Into The White House

The Donald Trump White House has quickly descended into full-on chaos following Democratic victories in Tuesday’s midterms.

Hours after the president completely melted down during an exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta at a press conference, the administration is refusing to let the reporter back into the White House.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta said on Twitter. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”

Acosta recorded the incident as it happened:

And just when you thought the White House couldn’t stoop any lower, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the CNN reporter of “placing his hands on a young woman” during Trump’s press conference.

But as Acosta noted a short time ago on Twitter – and as anybody with a pair of functioning eyes could see during the president’s press event – that is simply not true.

Still, Sanders said, “[The] White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice.”

Trump, not Acosta, was out of control

If there was anybody behaving inappropriately on Tuesday, it was the huffing and puffing man standing behind the podium with the presidential seal plastered on it.

In the specific sparring match with the CNN reporter, when the reporter calmly addresses the president, Trump completely imploded, calling Acosta a “rude, terrible person.”

At the end of the day, today’s incident showed that it’s Donald Trump – not a hardworking journalist – who should be denied entry into the White House.
