Here you go – Acosta is BANNED BANNED BANNED!!!
“As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders says.— Jennifer Jacobs (@JenniferJJacobs) November 8, 2018
This will deny unescorted entry to the WH grounds for @Acosta. https://t.co/38B0E92YuB
President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern...— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) November 8, 2018
This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) November 8, 2018
Contrary to CNN’s assertions there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters...— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) November 8, 2018

Oh boy. I can’t wait for his dear diary entry after this.
Here it is!!
I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) November 8, 2018
The US Secret Service just asked for my credential to enter the WH. As I told the officer, I don’t blame him. I know he’s just doing his job. (Sorry this video is not rightside up) pic.twitter.com/juQeuj3B9R— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) November 8, 2018
Uh not quite buddy:
OK… well.. it IS kinda hypocritical, to be honest. And it looks like she went after him. I feel bad for the intern – being put in a position where she has to get physical with reporters.
Some wondering why there was swift action against Jim Acosta (for something that does not appear as described) when men involved in the #Trump administration weren’t treated the same when similar credible accusations were presented? #Trumpnewscyle https://t.co/Ls8FrYUqAw— Robbin Simmons (@RobbinSimmons7) November 8, 2018
A few months ago I told the WH that I was physically ushered out in the Oval Office by a wrangler -- someone I like and respect -- I wanted to warn them about the pressure they were putting on young, junior staff.— Andrew Beatty (@AndrewBeatty) November 8, 2018
