Acosta had his White House press credentials revoked after he refused to give the microphone back to an intern during a heated exchange with the President at a press conference yesterday.
ABC’s “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin accused the White House intern of committing battery against White House correspondent Jim Acosta.
What happened to support all women? Hey Sunny Hostin, how about just admitting what he did was inappropriate and wrong and put this young intern in a bad position?

Sunny Hostin said that the female aide at the White House committed “battery” against CNN’s Jim Acosta during President Donald Trump’s press conference Wednesday.
The comments came during a discussion Thursday on “The View” over Acosta getting his WH credentials revoked over what Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called “inappropriate touching” on the aide.
Meghan McCain said that it was “100-percent” inappropriate for the CNN reporter to have “pushed” the aide’s arm away. Joy Behar, however, argued that the aide “shouldn’t have touched” Acosta.
“He’s blocking her, he’s not actually … he’s blocking her,” Whoopi Goldberg responded as video of the incident from the presser played.
“Well, she shouldn’t have touched him, maybe,“ Behar interjected.
McCain then asked the ladies if the situation were reversed and it was a “[Barack] Obama press conference and a Daily Caller reporter doing this, I think there are a lot of people on the Left that would be saying that it’s inappropriate for them to be acting that way.” More
Many claims of doctored videos of Acosta’s interactions with female White House intern.
Everyone deserves to see what REALLY happened.

The intern tried to retrieve the mic first he blocked her and turned away then when she actually had a hand on the mic he chopped at her arm. This wasn’t a reflective action this was deliberate! No matter how you slice it, his behavior was inappropriate and just plain old rude all the way around.
