I have high expectations for an ideal president, not for Trump. The way he handled that situation didn't surprise me at all.
OK cool that you had a laugh with a significant. I love humor and think all need to apply it much more. If you want to see true "gay" hand gestures just look at a Ken Fisher commercial for the ultimate. You might laugh at Al Capones hand gestures also though if there was benny hill music playing in the background.

EXACTLY how far should POTUS let obnoxious reporters go before reigning them in?
Does anyone really think that Acosta would act reasonably at the next press conference had POTUS threatened him with censure?
Does it have to get to the point that Acosta gets to take POTUS' microphone/podium at the next opportunity before civility is re-instated in the press conferences?
A "spanking" is never a "pretty thing"......Acosta the Brat got spanked.

If Obama would have been treated this way by the medial you liberals would have lost your minds and went further down the rabbit hole than you already are.

You people have been having a hissy fit for the last two years...can you say hypocrite with me?

It is difficult to hold your cool when being attacked by an arrogant idiotic democrat. The president should be held not only to a higher standard but also to a higher level of respect. He tried to ignore Acosta and move on but Acosta would not allow him. President Trump walked away from the podium to calm the situation as the adult in the situation.

I'm curious about these "standards" you reference constantly. Who established them? Where are they documented? How far back do they go?

Do these pass your test?

Washington was an ultra-successful liquor distributor in the new country. He made rye whiskey, apple brandy and peach brandy in his Mount Vernon distillery.

Jefferson and John Adams paid a visit to William Shakespeare's home in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1786. There, they chipped off a piece from Shakespeare's chair as a souvenir.

During his presidency, John Quincy Adams enjoyed skinny-dipping in the Potomac River in the early mornings.

Jackson was involved in as many as 100 duels.

Fillmore's first wife, Abigail Powers, was his teacher while he was a 19-year-old student at the New Hope Academy in New York.

Pierce was arrested for running over a woman with his horse.

Herbert Hoover's son had two pet alligators, which were occasionally permitted to run loose throughout the White House.

Rooselvelt's wife, Eleanor, was actually his fifth cousin.

Then there's JFK and his affairs

According to biographer Robert Dallek, Johnson met with a reporter who asked him multiple times why American troops were in Vietnam. In response, Johnson unzipped his pants, pulled out "Jumbo," and yelled, "This is why!"

Nixon and Watergate and erased tapes.

Gerald Ford worked as a fashion model during college, appearing on the cover of Cosmopolitan...but it's wrong for Melania.

Bill Clinton...say no more.

You guys get triggered even when someone AGREES with you because you can't take the extra 8 ******* seconds to read the entire post.
Unreal.

And it's YOU'RE, not YOUR. I guess 3rd grade was more challenging then you were hoping for.
You're triggered. Who the frick died and assigned you as resident English teacher? I understand the grammar. You'll find 100+ plus times where I've gotten it right and a few times where

For you're information - I'll tell you where it's never wrong, and that's when I'm communicating with my clients.

You're a Trump hater and the next 2 years will continue to suck for you.

There's 3 correct "you're". Shove 'em up "your" **s.

Because they don't all aspire to become internet memes ?

WasPo is reporting that the WH altered the video to show Acosta's actions being more violent than they actually were.

Holy lame much or what?

So, since it's right 97% of the time on this forum, then how do you explain the other 3%? Is it just a memory lapse where I temporarily forgot the correct grammar? Humor us Mr Teacher.

Oh, that's your nickname from now on, so he used to it.
