Its time we have a single party control of the nation. The GOP needs banned. Capitalism needs banned. 2020 we wipe the floor. Once full Democratic control is established, we rewrite the laws to ban any opposition, then the platform can openly embrace Socialism. Once we start seizing the wealth, then everything will work out. Its coming sooner than later.

The White House belongs to the people. Trump is a guest in the White House.

Did you watch the "news conference?" Trump allowed few reporters the opportunity to ask their questions. He'd just start talking, often with little relevance to the question the reporter was attempting to ask.

Your defense of Trump is hard to figure Neil. You see Acosta's rudeness, yet your eyes seem blinded to Trump's rudeness, systematic and systemic rudeness. Acosta overstepped his bounds, however so did Trump,
The exchange between Trump and Acosta was civil until Acosta insisted on pounding his editorial message thru after Trump ended Acostas session by telling him that they had a difference of opinion. That's when it became contentious. Refusing to give up the mic and continuing to talk over others who were waiting to voice their questions was enough for him to be removed from the room right then and there.
Acosta isn't a reporter any more and hasn't been for years. He's using the press room to inflate his ego by badgering the Prez with rhetorical questions that are simply editorial statements that he tries to make into questions by placing a question mark at the end. He contributes nothing. CNN needs to put him behind a desk where he can raft his editorials and read them on air. His egoistic tactics are tiresome and as I already said, contribute nothing.
Trump appears to have learned not to allow reporters to launch off in their multi question diatribes. When the subject of their first question is out he cuts them off and responds. If you think his responses are not to your liking refer to the responses of many others that are virtually the same. remember that the press room is his "bully" pulpit to use as hes wishes, the press is there to ask valid questions and listen to the answers and shut up and sit down when their 2 min of face time are up.

All the press needs to do is report all the news not just the Trump bashing society page drivel and natl Enquirer crap 24-7. Do it accurately and the "enemy of the people" label will disappear.
As for limiting access, that's exactly what Obama did. He had his stable of faves that he liked to do sit downs with and hardly ever actually answered any questions. His off the cuff style was horrible. Limiting access would produce an empty room by the standard you say he wants.
As it is with the "enemy of the people" press corp the only thing we actually hear in these contentious pressers is that the press hates trump and we've know that ever since he declared for the Presidency.
First of all the National Enquirer is PRO Trump.

The press does report accurately. The reason most of the coverage is “negative” is because is an incompetent idiot with narcissistic tendencies.

I was referring to style.
Reporting the Prez as you and other liberals would like to see him is the thing that makes them "the enemy of the people". It's obvious this is done in order to achieve the political goals of the radical left. Few people who spout this tripe not only don't have a clue what they are saying but they really don't believe it. Reporting fact is the job of the press, reporting opinion is the realm of opinion pundits.
In my opinion Obama was an incompetent narcissist who was completely unqualified to run a paper drive let alone the country. We're dealing in the realm of opinion not fact. Please try to recognize the difference.

Plus, jim "look at me!!! Look at me!! Im jim Acosta" did not get banned. He got his badge pulled that basically allowed him to come and go to the press conferences at will. Now he will have to check in, get approved and have a babysitter. Honestly i am surprised it took this long.

I do recognize the difference. My opinion that Trump is an incomptent, idiotic narcissist is based on the facts of his actions. The constant lying (fact) his lashing out on twitter at three in the morning against anyone he perceives as having slighted him (fact) and his inability to grasp some of the most basic concepts (fact). The facts that I have just listed are what the media reports on. The fact that some people think that he is an acceptable (forget about good, above average or outstanding) President boggles my mind.
