Shitlibs are lying and circling the wagon around this #resistard. Strangely, I don't recall them doing the same w/r/t Lewandowski when he was similarly accused. Odd case.

Actually, she clearly and unmistakably places her hand on his right hand while reaching across his body, and his gesturing left wrist then makes contact with her outstretched elbow. He then says “pardon me” to the intern who had thrice tried to take the microphone out of his hand.

This was a nonevent (SHS and others laughed at the time) spun into a laughable “assault” by SHS retweeting InfoWars.

Trump was MAF yesterday and decided to lash out at the press because his retard base likes that kind of thing.

Jim Acosta wasn't just asking questions; he was speechmaking. He's the equivalent of the attorney at a deposition who starts stating his opinion on the facts instead of just letting the witness answer the fucking question.

Aside from that, he was asking multiple questions in a row without giving up the mic (it's not *his* mic) when directed to. His touching of the intern was minor, but in service of his continued flouting of the rules and decorum (and then he lied about it).

Having said all that, Trump could have dressed him down in a much more dignified manner.

I have no problem with dressing him down. But I think it could have been done in a more dignified manner, that makes the contrast clear between Acosta's shenanigans and the importance/might of the Presidency. The way Trump did it, he's not above Acosta, he's just in the muck with him.

Did you read your own link?

Jeff Smith, the associate director of the National Center for Media Forensics at the University of Colorado, Denver, came to a similar conclusion. Smith told Motherboard via email that he could detect duplicate frames in the White House video, which could indicate it was doctored.

"There are duplicate frames at the moment of contact; 2 additional frames for no apparent reason but one could surmise that it could give the false impression of a split second more contact then there actually was," Smith wrote. "Otherwise, the video is not slowed down and doesn’t appear to be altered on the pixel level as many people in the twitter-verse are claiming. These many accusations also come as a result of the heavy compression and interlacing of the video."

So the InfoWars video contains duplicate frames of the physical contact “for no apparent reason.” Or for the obviously apparent reason that InfoWars wants to exaggerate that contact. Refuting some straw man “pixel manipulation” theory from unnamed Twitter retards doesn’t change the fact that the InfoWars video is not the same as the original source.

Side-by-side comparisons support claims from fact-checkers and experts such as Jonathan Albright, research director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, who argued that crucial parts of the video appear to have been altered so as to distort the action.

A frame-by-frame breakdown by Storyful, a social-media intelligence firm that verifies media content, found that the edited video included repeated frames that did not appear in the original footage. The repeated frames were shown only at the moment of contact and made Acosta’s arm movement look more exaggerated, said Shane Raymond, a journalist at Storyful.
