The article goes on to state the following:

“Journalists may use a range of approaches to carry out their jobs and the WHCA does not police the tone or frequency of the questions its members ask of powerful senior government officials, including the President,” he wrote. “Such interactions, however uncomfortable they may appear to be, help define the strength of our national institutions. We urge the White House to immediately reverse this weak and misguided action.”

      Evidently he was not taught to respect the office of the President or respect of women or to respect his betters! Or else his parents tried to teach him but he just didn’t learn & his parents probably hang their head in shame.

    “Purported” incident? Um it’s all on video for everyone to see. How is that a purported incident?

    He is a rude, disrespectful person. Can’t stand him. Don’t give him the pass back.

    Perhaps the WH should post up a sign specifically spelling out rules and decorum when being in the WH and addressing the President. It is obvious that some were either taught no manners or are just plain rude narcissistic individuals.

    WHCA I think you stated very plainly what the problem is. You have no code of conduct that you enforce on journalist. You apparently feel that anything goes when it comes to obtaining a story. I’m sorry but The President and majority of American People don’t agree with that type of standard. You continue to complain about the President conduct but your is just as bad if not far worse. Straighten up the Press you represent act and become more civil then the American People will expect, will require the same treatment of you from The President. Right now we are totally in the President’s corner.

    Don’t start a question by stating, “I’m going to challenge you”
    Keep your hands to yourself, show respect for the President.

    Personally, I think everyone has the right to kick rude and obnoxious people out of their homes. Using his press credentials to excuse what was total disrespect and rudeness is unacceptable. I wish President Trump would be just as decisive in his actions with the swamp people.
