This just goes to show how completely BATTY the liberal women of “The View” are.
You know all about the White House revoking Acosta’s press pass over a really heated exchange that occurred at one of President Trump’s pressers. After Trump answered Acosta’s question, Acosta continued to whine on and on and on. It was so bad that a White House intern intervened, trying to take the mic away. He kinda pushed back, and there was awkward contact.
“I didn’t put my hands on her or touch her as they’re alleging. It’s unfortunate the White House is saying this,” Acosta said Wednesday. “I think I handled myself professionally.”
Look– I’m absolutely NOT accusing Acosta of “assaulting” the woman. That’s utterly absurd. But for him to deny that there was any contact whatsoever? That’s the load of the century.
But wait. It gets even battier. Sunny Hostin of “The View” actually said that the young intern assaulted Jim Acosta. She used the word “battery.”
“What I saw was a battery, not by Jim Acosta, but by the young White House aide,” Hostin said.
Hostin said she was not assigning blame in the situation, but said the aide should not have tried to grab the microphone from Acosta.
Are you kidding me? It’s not even HIS MICROPHONE. He’s not entitled to it.
Also, I could totally get into the hypocrisy of the feminist movement and “victim-blaming,” but I won’t.
Hostin’s remarks sparked outcry from fellow “The View” hosts, particularly Meghan McCain, who said Hostin’s view meant that the aide “should be arrested for battery.” She added she was speaking facetiously.
