Washington - President Donald Trump is claiming that a video the White House released depicting contact between a White House staffer and a CNN reporter wasn’t altered.

Trump tells reporters that the video distributed by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was simply a “close up” and “was not doctored.”

But a frame-by-frame comparison with an Associated Press video of the same incident shows the one tweeted by Sanders appears to speed up CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s arm movement when he makes contact with a White House intern — apparently to make the gesture more threatening.

Trump’s also defending the seizure of Acosta’s White House press credential and the president is suggesting that more reporters could lose theirs.

Trump claims reporters aren’t “treating the office of the president with respect.”

Of course the fake news does a great job getting distracted on stupidity rather than the issue . They love to gloss over facts .

So we all admit that ACosta shamed an innocent intern in public . We all
Admit that when she tried to get that mick which belonged to her ( meaning she was in charge of the mike and it is the wh mike ) , she was pushed aside . And we all agree that he used his hand to push her hand away . Is it an arrestable assault ? No . Is it wrong ? Would I be fired if I did it at my CEO townhall ? Yes . Is it something befitting someone of accosta stature ? No

But go ahead fake news . Instead of saying that your man acts like a shtick behima you debate if it was altered or not . Shame shame in fake news CNN

Trump certainly believes that if he repeats a lie often enough people will believe the falsehood. His loyal followers certainly do.
Trump is the one who's not treating the Office of the President with respect as clearly evidenced by his bizarre behavior at that news conference. Behavior was more befitting a TV performer like Morey Povich.
What happened to the invading hordes of Central Americans who posed a grave threat to our country up until election day? It seems that now the elections is over both Trump and his cohorts at Faux News have forgotten about them

Video wasnt altered..., he had the largest inaugaration crowd..., ted cruz's father killed Kennedy... blah blah blah. Trump is pathetic. He has no credibility. He lies so often he probably cant comprehend what is truth and what is fiction.

Even in Soviet Russia and Red China the people laughed at the doctored news from their corrupt govts. Here the trumpoids and alt-yidden lap it up. The producer himself said the video was doctored. No one trusts trumpf.

You’re a nut. I saw it as it happened live.
The world saw this bum Jim Acosta pushes with his hand.
(If a fox reporter did that you would go even more crazy).

If it's such a "bottom line," then why use an altered video to make the case?

Rude? Meh...a lot of reporters are rude, shout questions, and don't yield the floor. Acosta? At times a bit worse.
But assault? Not even close.

You are correct on all. No one cares what exactly happened, as you said it happens all the time. The reporter was wrong on all accounts. What NEWS here is the POTUS and the WH is giving out FAKE videos. That is scary. The next FAKE video could be about Jews. That is how Chrystalnacht started. FAKE News about the Jews burning down the Reichstag. Its one thing when a small unnbown leftist liberal or ultra right neo-nazi org makes a fake video. Its entirely different when the POTUS of the USA is spreading a fake video. So scary, so very scary for Yiden

Typical hashoteh made up fantasies. Much like fake news. You have no way of proving anything you write.

I searched for the videos on the web and found nothing to show it had been altered in any perceptible way. Clearly the reporter actually "karate chopped" the woman's arm (perhaps he did not "mean to" - he was so pre-occupied attacking the President he does not seem to be paying attention to what he was even doing)

"Stop detracting from the subject.Lets stick to the issue" Can you Read Mr Educated? The issue is the altered video, not the reporter. "Jim acted unethical" 100% correct. He had all reason to ban him. Trump acted dangerous. Altered videos? Isnt that what the Arabs did against the IDF?

Tricky yoni again with his list but lies . So let me debunk your nonsense one by one

1) Reporters ask tough questions but at a press conference they are not rude . That's not tne norm . They also follow orders when told to stop.

2) yes it was very close to an assualt . He definitely pushed away , gnored and shamed a young intern trying to do her job . If it were your daughter who got treated that way you wouldn't be happy .

3) obviously you want to
Show what an animal
The guy is so you zoom in . That's not called altering . Why would you zoom in ? Because you need to show the public .

Your crazy comment is about as honest as the user name .

Nice try yamsar

Trump didn't alter the videos maybe some other right wing website did. This is one of the few times I agree with your president. Acosta was wrong.

Pre occupied is not an excuse . And it wasn't just the physical aspect . It's shaming and ignoring the intern who is completely innocent .The " ignoring" of tne intern is was deliberate .

And in reality acting as he did to the president is also unbecoming. This intern thing is just tne red line

As always you missed the point . This altering video nonsense is an excuse for the fake news to distract from the main issue . They should ask themselves did he act befitting . If accosta acted befitting just tne video was altered then you can make an argument. If Acosta acted wrongly then yeah alter no alter he needs to go .

As a side note zooming in , to show his improper behavior is not called altering
