Was Jim Acosta rude?

Maybe.

Then again, to Trump a person HAS to be rude to get his attention.

2. No. He was persistent. Trump cuts off the question and makes it what he wants it to be.

Acosta wasn't having that.

4. He was insistent

as one has to be sometimes as a reporter.

So, yeah, he pushed...but that's the only way to get an answer from that moron.

6. No, he was doing his job.

The Press is supposed to investigate, not cheer lead.

14. Fora southern man mid level manager like me, yeah

For a White House Press Corp reporter from one of the big networks, he was doing his job very fucking well.

They are our voice questioning the most powerful man in the nation. They should never be deferential or accept blatant lies. No matter who is in office.

15. No. He was persistent. The person trying to grab the mike from him was rude. Don pointing his little

finger at Jim and calling him names was rude. Saying "pardon me" and not giving in to someone rudely trying to grab something from you is not rude.

16. He was nicer to someone invading his personal space and trying to...

snatch something from him than anyone else would have been.

That intern has poor home training if she thinks that she can just go up and snatch someone from anyone.

17. If the tables were turned, and a FOX reporter tangled with a Dem President in such a manner

I may not like it, but given the context, I would never consider it discourteous or uncivil. It's 2 people doing their jobs. When 1 of those people refuses to do their job, it's no wonder the other will press even harder. That's not how the game is supposed to be played.

18. Jim Acosta was funny! I died when the woman persistently tried to grab the mic and Jim's like...

"excuse me ma'am"

I cracked up!
