Assault and violence are already crimes that are punishable with fines and jail time. This particular rhetoric appears to be a jab at the president voicing the mainstream media as being fake news. While I don’t advocate for violence on journalists I also don’t advocate disrespect of the president that has been openly proliferated by the mainstream media. What and how Acosta behaved in a White House Press Conference resulting in his having his rights removed to cover news WAS appropriate. His press badge should not have been given back to him and he should have been banned permanently. Likewise, Maxine Waters encouraged harassment and violence on people in the Trump Administration and ultimately all conservatives resulting in the need for bodyguards for Sarah Sanders and her family. That is the very epitome of abuse and Waters has not received ANY reprimand or punishment for her actions! Why not?? Is it because she is a Democrat or Black or both?? WHY is she above the law?? Anyone else would have been fined and jailed.
