I completely agree. I found a photo of that intern right after this terrible assault.

Yeah. It's one thing to create lie about something but it's even worse to use doctored footage to support that lie. It shows that the liar knows that they are lying and not just misinterpreting an event. Reprehensible and Irresponsible are the right words for this.

Irish people who are vocal about being "against trump" are pathetic.

If she was an intern 'under' Clinton she'd have something to be worried about.

As an avid Trumpette I'm finding this one hard to process.

On the one hand, I'm tired of bloody snowflakes crying about the smallest of transgressions all the time (e.g. "microagressions" - yuck!).

But on the other hand, I am outraged at this - I dunno, what would you call it, mini-agression from that reporter!

Now I'm no snowflake. In fact, I'm a manflake (this is an actual word, look it up).
I've forgotten my point.

I don't think this is a case of petty squabbles for or against Trump, this incident is a blatant attack on democracy.

The press is the only agency that provides the people with any accountability, and yes its a flawed body, but it's the only one we have. A journalist has to ask uncomfortable questions in order to provide the public with the information they're entitled to.
That this man is shouted down and verbally abused is one thing, that he then lose his job as a White House reporter because he's been banned for physically assaulting a woman, sullied with a slur over something he did not do and we all can see that he did not do, is a very scary development in the Western World.

This one can't be let pass. This would mark the beginning of us accepting to let modern democracy slide into being political orbits like China and Russia, where people who look for accountability of power or speak truth end up in jail for crimes they didn't commit or worse.

There are plenty of people over 30 here. The most powerful man in the world - yeah I think it's reasonable to have views on him when he tries to distort reality. As if people here didn't have views on Reagan or Nixon or Kennedy.

And wow, talk about missing the point, which is that the woman WAS NOT assaulted - that's what those who are critical of Trump are saying, hence no condemnation by "the lesbian feminists" (lol).

Is it only those here who are against Trump that you've a problem with? What about people here who wear MAGA hats? Much weirder.

How about people who are indifferent to him a lot of the time, disagree with him other times and agree with him other times?

The world has gone mad - can people please stop mentioning trump

This is about the behavior of a male CNN reporter to a young female intern . It was out of order. He should make a public apology at the least .

I personally don't see an assault here. Yeah he seams to like the sound of his own voice a bit too much and I think he was more concerned with having his moment then anything else but he did not assault the women.

I actually think if the roles were reversed and it was a female reporter and a male intern there would be uproar over how the intern just reached across like that to take the mic.

Her action looks more aggressive to me then his.

Makes you very thankful for the rules we have here about not allowing the media to discriminate between viewpoints or candidates during elections.
