Sean Spicer: Jim Acosta Owes Trump and the Entire Press Corps an Apology for His Childish Behavior

‘I don’t care whether you are a Republican or Democrat or independent, but if someone did that to President Obama or President Clinton or frankly any other human being, I would say the same thing’

RUSH EXCERPT:
SPICER: "What happened was after the exchange that you just noted, he did it again towards the end, he continued to harass the president-elect. After he had ended the press conference and had been removed from the area, I went up to Mr. Jim Acosta and I said his behavior was rude, inappropriate, and he said he had a right to ask a question. I informed him that I thought no one should be treated that way and treated that disrespectfully. And if he did it again in the future, I would have him removed. Tucker, I’ve known you long time. You know I am a pretty solid Republican. I don’t care whether you are a Republican or Democrat or independent, but if someone did that to President Obama or President Clinton or frankly any other human being, I would say the same thing. Nobody needs to be treated with that level of disrespect and rudeness. I think Mr. Jim Acosta owes the president-elect apology and the entire press corps for his childish and inappropriate behavior."
