Jim Acosta

The White House has apparently taken the first steps toward canceling the often contentious and rancorous White House press briefings.

All hail broke loose after Press Secretary Sean Spicer banned cameras and audio recorders from his press briefing on Monday.

The stress was audible in CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta's voice as he threw a tantrum on the White House lawn after the press briefing.

"That's the White House behind me… THE WHITE HOUSE! It's just bizarre! I don't know what world we're living in right now!" Acosta whined.

"Why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?" he cried.

Youtubers criticized Acosta for not knowing how to take notes to do his job without relying on video or audio.

The press briefings are a TV ratings bonanza for networks such as CNN and MSNBC, who lead the pack in anti-Trump "fake news" reporting.

CNN will lose millions in advertising dollars if the press briefings are canceled.

The press briefings gave bitter news reporters the opportunity to bash Spicer and the president on a daily basis.

Trump supporters have been calling for Trump to cancel the press briefings for months now.

    Not everyone knows how to take hand written notes anymore. People are either lazy or are dependent on technology.

  • free

    how do you ban cameras from press briefings?????

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If the Obama administration had tried something this, we know all the Trump supporters would have had a big problem with it, so...

  • datATLboi

    LMAO....this is the most SECRETIVE administration (if you can call it that) EVER!!!!!!

  • colejk

    Unlike video or audio, the accuracy of handwritten notes can be easily challenged or denied. So basic principles of democracy are being undermined with this move.

    In a free society, the practice of transparency is fundamental to people's ability public officials accountable--but this administration clearly doesn't feel confident in its ability to effectively explain or defend its decision-making. Unacceptable & a sad turn events for this country.

    oh Look how transparent the Cheeto administration is being.

  • Darkchild

    So basically you banned the accuracy gained from using cameras and recorders. Im sure everything will be fake news from here on according to 45.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    "Barack Obama ... is the least transparent President ever"

    The press briefings gave bitter news reporters the opportunity to bash Spicer and the president on a daily basis.

    WRONG they give the public video of these idiots being idiots and saying idiotic things on a daily basis.

    What's on tape is real and raw. Can't be twisted around to fit into the narratives that these idiots constantly try to spin in their favor

  • Renee26

    this administration clearly doesn't feel confident in its ability to effectively explain or defend its decision-making.....because they are following a leader that is tactless and classless

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. The longer he stays, and the more craziness he witnesses for himself behind closed doors, the more money he'll make on his book deal. He's not stupid.
    He might be a liar, but he's not stupid.

  • hottlanta

    Naw it is getting closer to the 23rd where Dump has to submit his tapes on Comey since he said in his tweets and the Justice Department gave him the deadline. They will be asking him those questions. Sean looks like he is saying to himself what the hell did I get myself into.

  • LexGirl

    Yup!!! Then its "they took notes wrong" or "they are embellishing the 'fake news'"! GTFOHWTBS!!! 45 has them out lying their a$$es off & its becoming harder to look straight into the camera or at reporters while trying to shovel the BS! smdh

  • Elevated Soul

    President Trump's administration had these Alt-Left fools losing their minds and I'm here for it.????

    CNN is throwing fits because at one time they had some credibility and now they have zero among those intelligent enough to see it.CNN has really been exposed by President Trump's administration.


  • Mrs. ??????????

    The next stage is to not hold any press briefings and that wouldn't be a surprise coming from this disaster of an administration. I bet the Trump supporters are really tired of all the winning by now....

  • Idraghoes??

    The irony of a trump supporter accusing anybody of temper tantrums. Sthap sandra


    The left and Democrats fatigue me. Are you people living in an alternative universe or do you agree with the fact that in the UAE you can be jailed for reporting a rape unless 4 members of your family (male) vouch for you. No one is Islamophobic we just are a costumed to a western life style with right you fools. It is beyond me why you will not let this man do his job and take your meds. You hand a rapist in office for 8 years and most of you lunatics where gonna vote for the rapists wife with the awful record of being a politician.Get help people or take a critical thinking class the media is trolling your behind with bullshit.( screaming in an empty room some where because i am allergic to dim people.)

    "Former President Bill Clinton praised the UAE at the 2017 InterAction Forum in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday as the ‘face of social justice for poor people around the world’ when they have taken in very few refugees and pay slave wages to domestic workers.

  • SumthinSweeter

    All that rambling and not one coherent thought came across. Are u sure you're not the one who missed s few doses of their psychotropic meds today?

  • Vegas1989

    You are so right...He be looking like a Dummy...trying to pull an answer out the sky or the mic...LOL...I would just get up there and say,"Dump haven't told my @$$ Nothing. Next question...NOpe he didn't speak on that...LOL

  • Vegas1989

    You got that right...They would be outside the WH with burning sticks and pitch forks....SMH....





  • hottlanta

    Comey note his notes to pen and paper. Old skool technology.

  • Mbailey

    BILL Clinton? Well, your granddad is dead, and can't continue to complain about FDR. I guess you have taken up your grandfather's cause of complaining about shyt that doesn't mean anything anymore with another name from the past.

  • dontgetblocked

    Newspaper reporters use notepads and tape recorders...so can he. This is a primadonna journalist whose producer writes the pieces for him anyway. He just wants to look like he's smart by asking an insulting question that the producer came up with. Our President is about to shut it all down and I love it. Bye Bye.

  • dontgetblocked

    The media has refused to give this administration a chance so I agree...shut down the briefings. No one needs all this bullcrap.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Live press briefings show how Dumb Trump, Spicer and all the minions really are... That's why they don't want live TV coverage!

  • nick c

    Either way it's ratings no tapes no ratings no $$$

  • nick c

    Agreed please shut it down

  • R Smith

    This is how dictators run their countries. They start changing policies to schools, religion, travel, etc. and you have no idea because it's not being reported.

  • Quitedeliteful

    News reporters cannot bash the press secretary unless he gives them fodder to bash him and this administration about... it doesn't seem like a tantrum to me but valid complaint.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lol Mr. Acosta didn't throw a tantrum now Donnie boy throws the tantrums.

    If the press stops talking about Donald Trump, his fuzzy tangerine head will explode! ?

  • MRiGOThim

    *Fuzzy Tangerine Head* hee hee hee

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's what they do in dictatorships.
    But then again, Trump has the mentality of a dictator, so...

  • nikkijamaica

    as said above it seems more about banning video and audio evidence which is recorded as-is. written notes can and will be challenged as inaccurate and "fake news"

  • Lucy

    Watched to entire video waiting for the tantrum...still waiting.



  • Alycia Lue

    I'm through with his sight. Sandra you are a moron. Good riddance.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly....CNN think they are entitled.In-fact Demoncrats think they are entitled,which is why they are throwing tantrums.

  • Alisa

    Swear I think they use House of Cards as a playbook.

  • pynkrose407

    U are truly a Trump Lover

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Applaud Presidents using Totalitarian tactics people. I mean lets not act like the Press in America is anything close to the free spirited beast it used to be in past decades. But they are still an American tradition and go hand in hand with the political landscape. Banning the press or banning them the tools that are needed to report the news back to the American people, (You know the people who supposedly VOTED for that shitball) is one step closer to a dictatorship.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    Your ignorance is duly noted when you think you speak for anyone other than yourself. Others will speak their minds just as you ramble on with your dribble. Stupid bot.
