CNN’s Jim Acosta has become the story once again. It’s once again because of his behavior.
The White House has revoked Acosta’s press credentials. The punishment comes just hours after Acosta got into a fiery exchange with the President Trump and then proceeded to touch a White House aide who attempted to take a microphone from him.
Check out the exchange below:

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the move on Twitter saying it’s because Acosta touched a White House aide.
President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern…

However, Acosta responded by saying Sanders claim is a lie.
This is a lie. https://t.co/FastFfWych

Well, Acosta’s wrong. The thing about video, is we have it and it’s all over the internet.
