REPORT: Sen. Rubio releases statement on CNN’s Jim Acosta

NOVEMBER 8, 2018

At a lengthy press conference at the White House on Wednesday, CNN correspondent Jim Acosta made the news himself when he engaged in a heated exchange with President Trump, resulting in the White House pulling his press pass.

Acosta continued to ask questions when the president had ordered him to sit down, and refused to turn over the mic when a White House aide was attempting to take it from him.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio issued a statement on Twitter Thursday morning, saying he didn’t agree with the White House’s decision to revoke Acosta’s press pass, but he also made it clear he didn’t approve of Acosta’s behavior either.

Rubio stated, “I don’t think they should revoke his WH pass. Revoking press access for being rude is a very slippery slope. But the WH pass is to cover the news, not make yourself the news. This tweet & his behavior is what you expect from an activist, not a journalist.”

“I’ve seen media bias firsthand. But vast majority of reporters try to be fair & professional. Very few act like Acosta does. He regularly showboats to make himself the story. Instead of reporting the news he wants to be the news. Revoking his WH pass gives him spotlight he craves,” Rubio wrote.

    It wasn’t just his rude and disrespectful behavior toward the POTUS! He pushed away the woman staffer who was trying to take his mic away! Despecible! Where are the Hollywood actresses who are #metoo activists? Oh, that’s right, this involves the WH administration and they only support woman victims on the left!! SMH! He deserved to have his press pass suspended!

      Rubio never mentioned the real reason the WH suspended his press pass!! It was his despicable behavior toward the woman staffer, who tried to take his mic away. Pres Trump was correct when he said Acosta is a rude and terrible person and treats Sarah Huckabee terrible too! How he gets away with his downright disrespectful behavior and keeps his job, is shameful!

    Why don’t you Marco Rubio just STFU and let the President handle his business and quit trying to be an attention whore and make YOURSELF the news a**hole!

    I just watched the video CNN provided and it clearly shows Jim Acosta putting his left hand on the lady intern’s left bicep to push her away while he pulls the microphone closer to himself.
    It’s as if he’s saying no it’s mine like a 4 yr old. So rude.
    And, CNN is saying this is a lie. They need to watch the video.
    And, where is all the outrage from everyone that a male CNN reporter put his hand on a female intern. To be exact his left hand on her left bicep. If it was Kavanaugh it would be streaming non stop on every news channel worldwide.
    People watch the video of how rude Costa is and how he touches the intern. Why isn’t the news media reporting on that?

    Jim Acosta should be fired!
