The mainstream media for days has been claiming, "without evidence,"* that a clip of CNN's Jim Acosta tangling with a 98-pound White House intern was somehow "doctored". After some snippy back-and-forth, the president said, "I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".

"I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser", Trump said about Ryan.

On Wednesday, Trump accused Yamiche Alcindor, PBS NewsHour White House correspondent, of asking a "racist question" when she inquired about the public perception that he was "emboldening white nationalists" on the campaign trail.

"President Trump deftly used the Acosta incident to play the victim of unfair press treatment", they said.

Trump also called out Acosta for his well-documented and theatrical spats with Sanders during the normal course of press briefings. I'm not enough of an expert in video formats to know whether this proves it was edited or if this could happen from being converted to a Gif.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders didn't respond to a request for comment.

"It wasn't doctored... they gave a close-up view", Trump told reporters on November 9.

"As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", said Whitney Shefte, the association's president. "When you're in the White House, this is a very sacred place to me".

The president on Friday also called Acosta unprofessional and unintelligent.

But some journalists - concerned about which reporter might be targeted next - have been calling for action to match the words. She's the White House Press Secretary, she should be fired for that. "In particular, if you look at original, higher-quality videos from other vantage points you can more clearly see that while there was some contact between the reporter and intern, he did not strike her as his hand comes down". "We do the work".

The New York Times also noted that Acosta's monologues have led "some of his rival White House reporters" to roll their eyes.

When Trump chose to fire Comey, the White House released a letter from the president to his Federal Bureau of Investigation chief explaining that he was being dismissed on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "I do think they're trying to shut us down to some extent".

She asked one of the day's key questions about newly appointed acting attorney general Matt Whitaker: "Do you want him to rein in Robert Mueller?". Acosta was trying to ask the president a question when Trump moved on to the next journalist and an intern tried to take away the microphone from Acosta, who continued talking. "But I watch you a lot, you ask a lot of stupid questions", Trump sneered. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said.

According to BET.com, Whitaker has a long history of confrontational remarks toward Robert Mueller and his investigation into the supposed Russian Federation collusion scandal.
