On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, CNN and Jim Acosta filed a pathetic lawsuit, with some top gun lawyers, against President Trump and the White House. This isn’t a freedom of the press case, it’s a scam. The purpose of a presidential press conferences is for the American people, not for a reporter to interrupt and give his political opinions. No reporter has a constitutional right to be physically present in the press room, any more than the scores of reporters who are not so lucky as to get a hard pass, to be there in the first place. The left tells us that the framers didn’t envision automatic weapons when creating the second amendment.
