"Out": Trump Expels CNN's Jim Acosta From Oval Office Over Shiteholegate Questions

President Trump ordered CNN's star reporter Jim Acosta "out" of the Oval Office Tuesday after the Senior White House Correspondent peppered the president with charged questions about immigration, following an alleged comment made by Trump last week in which he is said to have referred to Haiti and several other impoverished nations as "shitholes." 

After interjecting several times with increasingly aggressive lines of questioning, Trump pointed at Acosta and said "Out!" - which finally rendered Acosta speechless.


"Mr. President," Acosta shouted three times, finally getting Trump's attention, "Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?” Acosta barked at Trump. 

"I want them to come in from everywhere… everywhere. Thank you very much everybody," Trump replied while Acosta continued to interject.

"Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world… people of color," Acosta asked - effectively calling Trump racist, to which Trump looked Acosta directly in the eye and simply said:


Watch here:

Different angle:


Acosta spoke about the incident with Wolf Blitzer afterwards and said it was clear the president was ordering him out of the room. Acosta said he tried to ask his questions again when Trump and Nazarbayev gave a joint statement later on, but Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley “got right up in my face” and started shouting at him to block out any questions.

"It was that kind of a display," Acosta recalled. "It reminded me of something you might see in less democratic countries when people at the White House or officials of a foreign government attempt to get in the way of the press in doing their jobs."

Acosta and CNN were infamously humiliated after Trump called them "fake news" during a January, 2017 press conference in which Acosta attempted to shoehorn a question in front of another reporter: 

Meanwhile, Acosta was shut down in December by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders after he tried to grandstand during a press briefing over being called "Fake News," telling her that sometimes reporters make "honest mistakes." 

Sanders shot back; “When journalists make honest mistakes, they should own up to them. Sometimes, and a lot of times, you don’t,” only to be temporarily cut off by Acosta. 

“I’m sorry, I’m not finished,” Sanders fired back, adding “There is a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people... you cannot say it’s an honest mistake when you’re purposely putting out information you know is false."

For the life of me, I can't imagine why Trump continues to let Jim "the shit hole" Accost-a return - or anyone from the CNN Counterfeit Newspeak Network.

Perhaps he benefits from the neoliberal corporate propaganda which goes to crazy town with every one of their fake stories.  But, I think he'd benefit more by letting them go out of business by removing their press pass.

This will continue as long as the MSM keeps subjecting their employees to the Trump White House.  Nobody should ever go to one of Sarah Huckabee's travesties.  And everybody knows what they'll get from Trump himself; whatever crap comes off the top of his head.  The guy has no game whatsoever, so he just kicks over the game board.  Why bother covering it?  There's nothing to cover.  Nothing true will be learned or revealed.  At this point it's just cruel really.

He kicked over the Fake News game board maybe. Anyone here who sides with CNN or just about anyone in the MSM is a paid shill. You have no other reason to be here. For the first time in 35 years, we are witnessing more truth from a President than the establishment can handle. When the establishment whines about rights, truths, free speech you know damn well its propaganda.

Lol. Anyone here who "sides with CNN" is a paid shill? I dont think people really side with a news organization, rather they look at the spectacle (a rude journalist getting kicked out by a rude idiot) and think "wow, how far has our country fallen?". 

I guess to you that means someone pays me, since I think Trump is an idiot - better than Clinton - but an idiot all the same. ZH used to hate banks, now they hate CNN and love another president who pardoned the banks (again) because he's what, mean to a journalist? 

I dont know what tax bracket your in, but unless you're a CEO, Trump's plan is to nickel and dime the 90% to death. He still hasnt gotten rid of Obamacare, pardoned the banks, did the opposite of drain the swamp (he actually grew the swamp), and lowered the corporate tax rate.

But I guess because he yells at people, so who cares about your fiscal future.

I must say though, you guys are great at predicting the market turns. I just simply do the opposite of ZH's sentiment:

ZH was very much against BTC during the early years, now its like 50/50 - I invested early in BTC and dumped when ZH started to post pro BTC articles

ZH was very much for stacking gold and silver throughout the last decade - I dumped the little gold and silver I had in 2011 when everyone here was yelling about how amazing of an investment it was

ZH was very much against Apple and Tesla (Elon), pretty much always - I bought tons of Tesla a few years back and held onto all my Apple shares (which gave me some 40% return yoy)

Hey ...guy, here's a quote you can stick in your pipe...the former CIA Director, William Colby was quoted as follows..."The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." WTFU! its just a BS show and the beauty of it is Trump isn't dancing for these whores. Ok, go ahead and lite that up

Who doesn't love Wall Street gangsters? Not Braack!


After failing to criminally prosecute any of the financial firms responsible for the market collapse in 2008, former Attorney General Eric Holder is returning to Covington & Burling, a corporate law firm known for serving Wall Street clients.


The move completes one of the most troubling trips through the revolving door for a cabinet secretary. Holder worked at Covington from 2001 right up to being sworn in as attorney general in February 2009. And Covington literally kept an office empty for him, awaiting his return.


The Covington & Burling client list has included four of the largest banks, including Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.
