I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. – Jim Acosta, Trump Rally, Tampa Florida, on Twitter
FoxNews.com reports that
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked Wednesday about whether the president condones his supporters’ harassment of CNN reporter Jim Acosta.
The Daily Mail’s David Martosko asked whether Trump believes it’s wrong for his supporters to be “menacing” toward journalists.
Acosta tweeted out video from Trump’s rally Tuesday night in Tampa, which showed people shouting “You suck!” and making obscene gestures toward him.
He wrote that he was worried the “hostility” spurred by Trump could eventually result in someone getting hurt.
Sanders responded by saying that the president doesn’t support violence against anyone or anything.
“We fully support a free press, but there also comes a high level of responsibility with that.”
She followed by criticizing reporters for “routinely” disclosing classified information and government secrets, arguing it has put “lives in danger.”
“Unfortunately, it’s now standard to abandon common-sense ethical practices. This is a two-way street,” Sanders said.
Martosko responded that Acosta was not “broadcasting state secrets,” but Trump supporters tried to prevent him from doing his job by shouting at him while he was on the air.
Sanders responded by saying, “While we certainly support freedom of the press, we also support freedom of speech and we think that those things go hand-in-hand.”

The arrogance of the Liberal Main Stream Media grew exponentially during the 8 long years of the reign of King Barack The First.
Their egos were fed by the fact that they were given favored status during the Obama Administration because they were fellow travelers on the road to a “Socialist Paradise”.
They fully expected to continue to enjoy that favored status, as they were 100% certain that Hillary Clinton was the heir apparent who would continue the march toward “Democratic Socialism” that Obama began.
However, a funny thing happen on the Road to a Socialist Paradise.
Average Americans, living between the coasts, elected a Capitalist as the 45th President of the United States of America, a decision which has proven economically beneficial to all of us here in the Heartland, but not beneficial at all for the Main Stream Media.
One year and seven months into the enormously successful presidency of Donald J. Trump, the Main Steam Media are in the throes of a psychosis brought on by desperation.
Everything that they have tried to throw at President Trump to end his presidency on behalf of their masters in the Democratic Party Hierarchy has failed miserably.
Remember Stormy Daniels?
Their enormous sense of self-righteousness, brought on by their massive Liberal egos, has prevented them from understanding the depth of disgust which average Americans feel toward them and their unrelenting attacks on President Trump, which mostly consist of Fake News Stories provided by “Unnamed Sources”.
Jim Acosta received a “Reality Check” at Tuesday Night’s Trump Rally in Tampa, Florida.
One, which from all accounts, he and his fellow members of the Vanguard of the Democratic Party known as the Main Steam Media, are meeting with their usual condescension toward us members of the “Great Unwashed” who support President Trump.
As their ratings continue to tank and Trump’s Popularity Poll Numbers continue to rise, come this November, average Americans will once again experience the glorious Schadenfreude of watching Liberal News Anchors and Political Pundits meltdown as a sea of red envelopes the continental United States of America as Republicans strengthen their presence in the House of Representatives and in the Senate.
And, there won’t be a darn thing that “the Smartest People in the Room” can do about it.
