    The actions of Jim Acosta and President Trump were unacceptable, unprofessional and inappropriate. Both are at fault and both acted like children. We are too quick to judge and place blame solely on one person. No journalist has any special right or privilege over any other citizen. A white house press pass is a privilege, not a right. Jim Acosta and President Trump should each reevaluate their actions and decide how to act more civilized in the future. When emotions dictate actions, everyone loses.

    Be respectful and you will be respected. I see President Trump’s point clearly. The press is gradually migrating toward being nothing but a bunch of yipping dogs looking for the next big score. Show some respect.
