    Confirming what we already knew.

    And anyone who watched the video knows that if anyone was acting like an asshole, (as usual) it was Trump.

    No doubt. But in this particular event, only one was acting like it. I mean people are saying Acosta did this and that, but the video right there Trump isn't even allowing the guy to speak and ask his question, because Trump didn't want to answer. As soon as Acosta said "caravan", Trump starting raising his voice "Here we go, here we go...", as if Acosta wasn't allowed to ask.

    Good point, I'd also say Anne Coulter isn't biased as she criticizes Trump and praised John Kerry today, what a world!

    Anne Coulter is a caricature. She's all about the money, it's an act. She and Bill Maher have a thing going because if she really believed what she said or wrote, no way Maher would ever have her on, or go as easy on her as he does.

    It's shtick.

    Yeah, but they'd probably protect their own instead of some CNN journalist.

    Kelly did not rule on whether the administration violated CNN and Acosta’s First Amendment rights. The network and Acosta are arguing that the administration didn’t like the questions Acosta asked and therefore revoked the pass, committing what's known as viewpoint discrimination, which is prohibited by the First Amendment.

    Kelly said he has not determined if the First Amendment was violated in this case. Instead, he said Acosta and his employer have shown they are likely to succeed in their argument that their Fifth Amendment rights to due process were violated by the White House.
    He's not saying the First Amendment was violated, but he's not not saying it either.

    They didn't need to. He got his pass back.
