READ: Judd Apatow Tweets ‘I Love When the Rudest Cruelest Man Who Acts Like a Pig All Day Demands That People Act With Respect’

Right?

At a press conference following the Democrats’ many victories in the 2018 midterms, Donald Trump became enraged at Acosta for continuing to ask questions once the president dismissed him.

Trump became visibly angry, saying to Acosta:

“CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

A young female White House staffer attempted to take Acosta’s mic away, however he dodged her arm when she reached for it. The next day, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared a doctored video which was sped up to make Acosta’s dodge appear far more aggressive than it was.

CNN filed a lawsuit against the White House for the revocation, charging that it violated the right to a free press. The judge sided with the network and Huckabee Sanders announced that the pass would be restored for the time being. However, it appears that Trump isn’t about to take his sights off Acosta, warning:

“If he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

Despite many attempts by the president and White House officials to assail Acosta’s character, it appears most Americans agree with Apatow.

The White House is reportedly writing new rules on decorum for reporters that the president says will make press conferences more orderly and civil. Yet judging from the way he’s treated the press since the start of his campaign in 2015, that respect won’t be returned by him.
