“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.

    Figures … the view would not see the reality. Experience has taught the pages that if you do not grab the mic especially from Acosta they won’t let go. The View nothing but a bunch pre menstrual idiots.

    THE VIEW what a joke. But you sort of got to admire their sticking to I didn’t do it. Like men train each other if you get got cheating always claim you didn’t do it. But they are all still IDIOT’S (,the view). 😎🇺🇸🇺🇸

    She’s been with The View hosts to long, she’s acting like them now.

    The View is hateful, anti President Trump and has had their own view the last few years. I quit watching these hateful wenches since 2015 when they started their speaking their hateful views all of the time. Hateful. They don’t have anything good to contribute. They should have took that show off the network a LONG time ago.

    The female WH aide attempted three times to retrieve the mic from Acosta. Not once, but THREE TIMES! I should say that by the third attempt, yes, she was RIGHT to try to take the mic back with a bit more gusto, after the two previous failed attempts. However, she did not threaten this ‘opinionist’ (NOT JOURNALIST!) in exercising her duties. BOTTOM LINE: HER JOB IS TO CONTROL THE MIC. And THREE TIMES Acosta the accoster resisted her attempts to do her job! On the third attempt he physically used his hand (like a karate chop in the crease of her arm) to make her yield to him! Absolutely disgraceful behaviour from a bully. The Skew would blame the woman! So much for #metoo!!!!!

    Need to change the shows name. “Obstructed View” sounds more appropriate. Not surprised by the comment.
