Trump Supporters Freak Out After Judge Orders Trump To Immediately Reissue Jim Acosta’s Press Pass

On Friday, a federal judge reinstated CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass. It had been revoked after Acosta tried to ask questions during a press conference held the day after the midterms that President Donald Trump didn’t want to answer.

Judge Timothy Kelly granted CNN’s request to temporarily reinstate Acosta’s “hard pass,” which gives him access to the White House. CNN filed a lawsuit against Trump and the White House claiming that the revocation of the pass violated First and Fifth Amendment rights.


“I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week, and I want to thank the judge for the decision he made today,” Acosta said outside U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.,” adding, “Let’s go back to work!”


CNN claimed that they were “gratified with this result and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days.”

Many people were thrilled with the outcome.

Even right-wing political commentator Ben Shapiro got in on it.


But a lot of conservatives were not happy.


Fox host Lou Dobbs chalked CNN’s win up to “outrageously puerile reasoning.” He seems fun.

And, as always, Sean Hannity’s Twitter mentions were full of angry conservatives.

CNN’s lawsuit against the White House highlights Trump’s increasingly hostile relationship with the media, which he often refers to as “fake news” and “the enemy of the people.”
