Donald Trump calls CNN's Jim Acosta 'very unprofessional'

CNN released a statement via Twitter, as did The White House Correspondents' Association.

"He's a very unprofessional guy", Trump said, alluding to this week's fiasco with Acosta during a press conference that led to him losing his White House press credential.

After comparing her to Acosta, Trump said, "You talk about somebody that's a loser?".

"When I stood up, in his response, he tells me to 'sit down, ' in a condescending, very ugly matter", Ryan said.

President Donald Trump instructed journalists on Friday (Nov 9) to show more respect in the "sacred" White House and moments later angrily refused to answer a reporter's question because it was "stupid".

The CNN journalist tweeted a view of the Eiffel Tower, saying: "Greetings from Paris where we are on the ground for Trump's trip to France". During their verbal altercation on Wednesday, Trump called Acosta a "terrible person". In her statement announcing Acosta's suspension, she said the White House won't tolerate "a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job". Interesting sentence in wire service account:

While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead.
The video proved otherwise.

Ms. Sanders deflected-and then mirrored Mr. Acosta's tone.

"He does it, for, you know, the reason-the same thing with April Ryan". He should be either going forward, a campaign strategist, a campaign spokesperson on the Democratic side, or perhaps an opinion host in CNN prime time, or a pundit, because that is what Jim Acosta really is. "I haven't made that decision, but it could be others also", he told reporters.

But even as the entire left seized on this claim (see what I did there), there were other experts who came to different conclusions.

Trump also berated another CNN reporter, Abby Phillip, for asking what he called a "stupid question".

"Jim Acosta clearly never touched that White House intern. We urge the White House to immediately reverse this weak and misguided action". "But I watch you a lot, you ask a lot of stupid questions", Trump sneered.

"Do you want [Whitaker] to rein in Robert Mueller?". The president has a long history of insulting the intelligence of women and people of color. [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new.

"I love this country and have the most respect for the Office of the President", Ryan tweeted Friday morning.

"I mean, you know, 'loser, ' 'stupid, ' I mean, this president- he has disparaged African-Americans in particular in ways that are deep".

"It wasn't doctored", the president said.
