Oh...but you would probably like Lester, since Lester had a run-in with the White House himself.

May I suggest that you read my Wikipedia link about Lester Kinsolving --- if you hadn't done so already.

There has been some talk about due process but that doesn't stand up to scrutiny either since due process means: "fair treatment through the normal judicial system, especially as a citizen's entitlement." Pulling a press credential has nothing to do with the judicial system since no charges of any sort are filed.
I don't really care if Acosta gets his pass back or not. But the Executive branch is not above the laws passed by congress. It's SCOTUS who decides if laws are supported by our constitution.

Personally, I wouldn't want to take a case like this to an arbitrator let alone the SCOTUS. Why? because both individuals behaved like children. But I will say the young lady who attempted to get the microphone away showed incredible poise.

Again, you overlook the fact that it says, "Congress shall make no law...."
I can't think of a single person that has the absolute right to access the White House, even though it technically belongs to "the people."Even news media individuals don't have an absolute, personal, right to a WH press conference!
I will also add, a lower court judge does not have the authority to tell the POTUS who he can or can't allow to participate in a press conference! Therefore, I stand by my original opinion that the President should ignore the order unless the SCOTUS says otherwise!

Technically, he is bound to follow the judges order until it's over turned by a higher court.

Nation of laws and all that.

The motion is deemed dilatory (absurd in substance) by the chair.

I know what it means and you are wrong again. However, I am sure you had to contact your Union handlers to give you a word to use.

OK Genius, tell me what law Trump violated by pulling the credentials of ONE reporter. His news agency, CNN, is still allowed in and they have nearly 50 other reporters that cover the WH. So why is this punk so important and why should any president have to put up with blatant disrespect at a press conference? Can you answer those questions intelligently?

No president is even required to do a press brief. The first one happened during Wilson's term and the so called daily press briefing didn't come around until Slick Willy was in office. Frankly I'd love for Trump to simply declare there will be no more daily briefings and the WH will issue a weekly press release in writing to all news agencies. A nd this will have to go to the SCOTUS since the judge made a very bad call on this. Go read the 1st and 5th amendments and tell me where this aligns with what they say.

Thanks for the compliment flags. Though I don't think I qualify as a genius in the strict sense. Clever and resourceful maybe...

As for Trump? I don't know that he broke any laws. My understanding is that CNN and quite a few others have decided to make a case around this "event". So, the end result will most likely be a law. I'll say again both men behaved like children and we all have to put up with the fallout.
