Na tiskovni konferenci v Beli hiši je včeraj prišlo do zanimivega dogodka. Donald Trump je odgovarjal na vprašanja novinarjev in ko ga je začel spraševati novinar CNNa, Jim Acosta, o #fakeshit kampanji, ki jo je vodil Donald in o Rusiji, se je Donaldu malo odpeljalo. Za piko na i se je tiskovna predstavnica Sarah Huckabee Sanders zlagala še na tviterju o tem dogodku, kjer je dokazala, da očitno obstajata dva svetova.

Očitno je Trump pod precejšnjim stresom, ker se volitve v predstavniški dom niso končale po njegovih željah. In ker se očitno počuti superiornega si to dovoli tudi na novinarskih konferencah, kjer rad podučuje novinarje in jih žali. In ker je užaljen, odvzame novinarju tudi akreditacijo, ki mu je omogočala poročanje iz Bele hiše.

Temu se reče svoboda govora po Trumpovo. Na srečo je bilo okoli Jima Acoste vse polno novinarjev in snemalcev in so te stvari zelo nazorno prikazane v videoposnetkih, ki so objavljeni na spletu.

Za boljše razumevanje je tole del s spletne strani CNN:

Acosta was one of the first reporters Trump called on.

  • “Thank you, Mr. President,” he said. “I want to challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign.” Trump leaned into the mic and said,
  • “Here we go” — seemingly relishing the confrontation.
  • Acosta brought up the migrants traveling from Central America toward the US southern border, and the racist ad referring to them that the Trump campaign released last week.”As you know, Mr. President, the caravan is not an invasion,” Acosta said. “It’s a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the US–“
  • Trump, sarcastically, replied, “Thank you for telling me that, I appreciate it.”
  • Acosta: “Why did you characterize it as such?”
  • “Because I consider it an invasion. You and I have a difference of opinion.”
  • “But do you think that you demonized immigrants?”
  • “No, not at all. I want them to come into the country. But they have to come in legally.”
  • That’s what the migrants are trying to do — they say they intend to seek asylum. Acosta called out the misleading ad and said: “They’re hundreds of miles away, though. They’re hundreds and hundreds of miles away. That’s not an invasion.”
  • “You know what? I think you should,” Trump started to say, pointing at Acosta. “Honestly, I think you should let me run the country. You run CNN. And if you did it well, your ratings would be much better.”
  • “Okay, that’s enough,” Trump said as Acosta tried to ask another question.

A White House staffer hurried over to grab the mic and carry it to the next reporter Trump chose, NBC’s Peter Alexander.

  • “If I may ask one other question, are you worried–” Acosta tried to point out that other reporters had also asked multiple questions.
  • “That’s enough,” Trump said.
  • The White House staffer tried to grab the mic from Acosta, but he held onto it.
  • “Pardon me, ma’am,” he said, as she looked toward Trump, then ducked out of camera view.
  • “Peter, let’s go,” Trump said, trying to move on to Alexander.
  • “If I can ask, on the Russia investigation,” Acosta said, “are you concerned that you may have indictments coming down–“
  • “I am not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation because it is a hoax,” Trump said, “That is enough, put down the mic.”
  • Trump backed away from the podium for a moment, signaling he was done, while Acosta asked the question again and then let go of the mic.
  • While Alexander started to ask his question, Trump said, “I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them.
  • He pointed at Acosta: “You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

Potem pa je sledilo še presenečenje. Jimu Acosti so prepovedali novinarsko akreditacijo za poročanje iz Bele hiše.

Pa vendar tudi to še ni vse. Na tviterju se je oglasila tiskovna predstavnica Sarah Huckabee Sanders in se zlagala o dogodku – namreč, vse skupaj so posnele kamere in njeni tviti so le še en primer #fakenews.

To je ta svoboda govora v ZDA …
