President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

There needs to be a lot more press passes pulled until the media starts showing a little respect to the President, Sarah Huckabee Sanders or anyone who takes the podium at a press briefing.

I felt sorry for the young lady trying to get the mic away from that asshole Jim Acosta I thought Trump was going to come off the stage there for second.

Trump supporters love this sort of thing, and their opposites see it as an attack on FotP, etc.

I am seeing Trump losing Suburban America to a large degree now.  That might not be good politics.

So you're okay with a man shoving a woman or putting his hands on her without her permission?

Isn't that what you democrats complain about all the time the assualts and war on women?

But if you see Trump losing Surburban America have your eyes checked or quit watching PMSNBC.  

He could fill any stadium in the country with people when he has a rally and he is the reason the GOP increased their seats in the senate.

The reason the GOP lost house seats was the dumb ass candidates who didn't want him campaigning for them.
They ran away from Trump and his policies so they lost.

Acosta and CNN have been trying to get this type of reaction for months.
It was a no win for Trump.
He could have ignored the guy and Acosta would have made a circus out of the press conference  or reacted the way he did and let CNN make a martyr out of Acosta.
I'm hoping the WH never takes another question form CNN.

Yes, seeing the bad guy get his is always enjoyable....

The dems/msm has done an impressive job dominating the magazines and morning TV shows the suburban/soccer mom's use for their news input. 
Over the next 2 years they'll continue to group themselves into the urban sphere they flock to. While this increases their local presence it actually decreases their power in the electoral landscape. Meanwhile flyover America is experiencing rapid growth and knows which leader is responsible. Any gridlock to the expanding economy can and will be traced to the new house majority. 
Pres Trump may match Reagan's sweep in 2020....

Where did I say what I was "OK with"?  Why do you think I'm a "democrat" who complained all the time about "assualts"(sic) on women?
I see the voting patterns.  Around where I live, the surburban (sic) counties voted for a Black African American woman for governor over the while male candidate.  That is a pretty significant shift.
Trump has very ardent supporters.  That does not mean his numbers overall look good.  But I think losing the House will help him get reelected.  He may not get reelected, but that should be an assist.

Freedom of the Press?  Since when did Jim Acosta act like a member of the press?  He did everything but wear a pussy hat into the WH pressers while carrying a "Not My President!!" sign.   
I think most Americans expect the press to ask the tough questions and hold our politicians accountable.   What we don't expect is for them to protect and defend one party while constantly attacking the other party.  How are CNN, NBC, etc. anything other than a media arm of the DNC?

Trump supporters all agree.

Some others "in the middle" may see it differently.
