The Acosta microphone grab was staged.


It was a set up to get Acosta.
I have watched the video repeatedly.
Whoever the Trump bimbo was, she moved in with a single purpose, tried to grab the mike, actually SHE bumped Acosta's hand, and when she could not get the microphone, she suddenly dropped in to a chair and looked at Trump for a cue. like a puppet whose strings had been cut.

Watch the video a few times, try to see where she appeared from. I am convinced someone in the back cued her to storm in.
Look carefully at her body language and expression as she plopped down into the chair.

I want to go find a perhaps longer video of the press conference, but it sure looked stage to me.

1. Madelaine.

She's the new pants steamer for Trump.

6. Ahh yes, Madeleine Westerhout

She misunderstood Trump’s private comments to her. She heard “grab” and “snatch” in a totally different context and ran with it.

7. The mushroom uses his personal secretary to grab microphones?

Huckleberry Pearls said she was an intern, of course that was a damn lie too.

The press needs to band together on this and punish the White House.

just happened to be tasked today with grabbing microphones and hiding in potted plants.

It was staged.

2. Who is she? A WH staffer?

I don't know why we're supposed to think she has the right to grab something out of his hand and then play the victim when he grabs it back.

The right love to do that, use women to make it seem like they're victims of mean old liberals or reporters.

5. Well, she was certainly under orders to grab the mike...

Nobody, especially an intern, just runs in from nowhere and grabs a reporter's mike. Even security doesn't rush in without being asked.

Assuming she was an intern, not, perhaps, an actress or Russian agent hired for the afternoon.

The two questions I have are:

Which drug-addled genius came up with this plan?

Precisely what was this supposed to accomplish?

9. They're using this as the rationale for yanking Acosta's WH press creds..

..for 'putting his hands' on the shy, demure intern.

21. Didn't Lewandowski actually accost Katy Tur in 2016?

Was it a different reporter? Trumpworld always accuses others of misdeeds of which they, in fact, are guilty. Projection, projection.

It's from a reporter at RawStory




The look on the intern's face is kind of frightening.

We think this might be her.....if so, she is the new Hicks bimbo.

he was in the room and if only he would have seen this happening, he would have rushed to her defense.


Another heroic "if only" wasted.

10. That's believable; otherwise I couldn't figure out how, why, or who prodded her

to suddenly move up to the front of the area and get into Acosta's face. She seemed very purposeful in her movements. The first time viewing it, I didn't realize she had to reposition herself - thought she had been seated nearby, but after viewing again, I saw her advance and thought it bizarre.

22. This was a WWF-type stunt. Trumpy is reminiscing about the good old days.

Let's start a brawl in the press conference. Send the staffer into the crowd to bully the reporter and watch the fur fly, then blame the reporter for starting the mayhem. Vince McMahon should be proud.

However you feel about Trump, using a term like that for a woman is uncalled for.

17. Agreed was going to post the same

She’s not a bimbo just a staffer trying to do her job. However, she obviously is inexperienced and Acosta did nothing wrong

19. It's a burlesque show. We are getting played by both DT and the media

One gave us the other and both are giving us a show now. Both are profiting

The media or a media figure should not be news or an important issue.

We are a gullible and captive audience

I think the whole thing sucks

a Trump rally?

I don’t think she sat down. I think she squatted thinking the cameras wouldn’t be able to see her.

Trump keeps his assistants close, it figures she would be with him at rallies, and be only too happy to do whatever he asked.
