Protecting his microphone from the intern who wished to silence him by taking it away?

You bet!

And he did it without assaulting her. If anyone assaulted anyone, it was the intern who assaulted Acosta when she tried to take his microphone away.


LOL@bill with his fake spin...

Acosta was belligerent and out of line. He was told to sit down and give the mic to the young White House aide. Acosta refused and made a fool of himself.

"After Mr Acosta attempted to follow up his question with a second on Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, Mr Trump added, pointing angrily: “That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough. Excuse me, that’s enough.”

Mr Trump said he was “not concerned about anything” because the investigation was “a hoax”.

Continuing to berate Mr Acosta, he added: “That’s enough. Put down the mic.”

Mr Acosta was seen to tussle with a female White House aide who was trying to retrieve the microphone.

As the reporter continued to quiz him and interrupt him, Mr Trump became more agitated and stepped away from the podium. Mr Acosta then sat down."

Acosta continued to try to ask questions without the microphone. What a jerk.
