Video: Idiots on The View claim White House intern assaulted CNN propagandist Jim Acosta

It’s official — we now live in an upside-down world where up is down.  On Thursday, The Hill and other outlets reported that “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin actually claimed that a White House intern who was attempting to get a microphone from CNN propagandist Jim Acosta at the president’s direction, actually committed assault when he pushed her arm away.

The incident prompted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to announce that Acosta’s White House credentials had been revoked.  Instead of apologizing for the incident, CNN, along with much of the Democrat-media complex, defended Acosta.

Now, Hostin is saying that the intern is really the one at fault.

“What I saw was a battery, not by Jim Acosta, but by the young White House aide,” she said.

“When you are holding something — if I may, if you’re holding something and you snatch this from me, this cup is now an extension of me and that means you’ve battered me, you’ve assaulted me,” she added.

Meghan McCain sarcastically asked: “So we should get her arrested for battery?”

“I’m telling you what the law is,” Hostin said.

Hostin also praised Acosta, Newsbusters said:

[T]he other thing is, when you’re talking about Jim Acosta being the headline, if you think about the reporter that Jim Acosta is, Jim Acosta is a reporter who covered the war in Iraq from he’s a reporter that has covered many campaigns, Mitt Romney’s campaigns. He’s covered politics for a long time. He has, you know, been — he’s asked very difficult questions of world leaders his entire career. He’s the first foreign journalist in 50 years — his father was a Cuban refugee. He actually in Cuba held Raul Castro to account for the human rights violations in Cuba. So this is a journalist who has spent his career doing what I think the great journalists do which is holding power to account for their actions.

She also claimed that Acosta has been equally tough with Obama:  “He’s done it with Obama and he’s done it with Trump. Trump doesn’t like it!”

But, Newsbusters said, that claim is completely false.
