Samantha Bee Defends Jim Acosta: We Should Be 'Ashamed' of Trump

The log ongoing bad air between Trump and CNN's White House correspondent reached a fresh rupture today, with the President calling Acosta a "rude, awful person" in what was supposed to be midterms victory lap by Trump.

It says: "These frames do not appear in the original C-SPAN footage, and appear to exaggerate the action of Acosta".

However, Mr Acosta refused to give it up as he attempted to ask the president a further question.

On Twitter, video editor Rafael Shimunov shared a different analysis which he said proved the video was "doctored". He denied efforts to speed up or distort the video.

"Nice try to distract from Acosta's behavior, but this kind of dishonesty is why the media has a massive trust issue".

The video replays the same sequence six times, with no sound. But it has also highlighted how video content - long seen as an unassailable verification tool for truth and confirmation - has become as vulnerable to political distortion as anything else.

The president had been talking to other reporters and really railing against them.

Adding to the twist is the fact that the baby's father could either be Dylan or Haley's ex Arvin ( Chris Geere ). Fans of the show might have already expected that she was expecting, especially after Hyland posted this hint.

Suitably, people had a lot to say about the Trump administration's accusation.

Less than a day after banning CNN reporter Jim Acosta from the White House, press secretary Sarah Sanders is facing additional scrutiny after sharing an edited video clip that showed Acosta's brief exchange with an aide over a mic. The same video was published about two hours earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, an editor-at-large for the Infowars website. "History will not be kind to you", he wrote. He criticized NBC's Peter Alexander for backing Acosta.

While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead. "We stand by our statement".

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway piled onto the false allegation on Thursday in an interview on Fox News.

"As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", Shefte said. "It's deceptive, risky and unethical. I'm fighting back not for me, I'm fighting back for the people of this country".

Wednesday's event, which began with the president framing Tuesday's election results as a victory for himself and the Republican party, was Trump's first planned, open-ended press conference at the White House since February 2017, and only the second since he took office. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands" on the intern. "We used to call it the press".

"So you're blaming the woman in this situation?" asked Abby, as McCain also countered by sarcastically saying, "So it's the woman's fault for doing her job". It has been viewed more than 1 million times.
