“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin said it was the young White House aide and not CNN reporter Jim Acosta who committed battery when attempting to remove a microphone from Acosta’s hand at a press conference on Wednesday.

Acosta got into a heated exchange with President Trump, who told Acosta to sit down and refused to take further questions from the reporter.

The article goes on to state the following:

A White House aide, later identified as an intern, then tried to remove the microphone from Acosta, who resisted and asked a follow-up question.

As the intern tried to grab the mic, Acosta said, “pardon me, ma’am” and continued to try to ask his question. Acosta’s hand made contact with the intern’s arm during the exchange.

“What I saw was a battery, not by Jim Acosta, but by the young White House aide,” Hostin said on the ABC show on Thursday.

  1. Can this woman or this show getting any dumber or leftist?
    The mike belonged to the WH, not Acosta or CNN. Acosta is a man who put his hands on the young woman who works for the WH. The President told him to shut up. To hand over the mike. This is nothing short of an older man abusing a young woman. What happened to the #METOO gals?

  2. The View? Combined these females have the IQ of a gnat. Those who would waste their time watching/listening to their screeching banter have the IQ of a flea.

  3. Since when does a CNN pos run the President’s news meeting? The mike was given to him to ask his question and was not his to keep until he was done, but was to release it upon request. Anyone who watched that exchange knows that Acosta should have been removed and terminated.
