CNN sued the President over his handling of Jim Acosta’s unprofessional display of disrespect for the Office of the President of the United States.

The judge sided with CNN, and ordered the White House to allow Jim Acosta his place in the press briefing corps, whether the President likes it, or not.

Where in the U.S. Constitution does it give the courts the authority to dictate to the executive branch how to manage a press briefing, and where in the Constitution does it allow the courts to dictate to the President how he performs his job?

It doesn’t.

Once again we have a court system that is acting beyond its authorities.  The judicial branch is not the boss over the President, the Congress, or the States, yet they continue to wield that kind of power through judicial activism.  In fact, if you go back to the Framing of the Constitution, the judicial branch is supposed to be the weakest branch of the federal government.

Since the Democrats could not put in place an authoritarian dictatorship through a Hillary Clinton presidency, they are continuing to try to throw their Marxist weight around through the courts.

In an even more amazing twist, the U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly who made the decision to force the White House to reactivate Acosta’s allowance to be at White House press briefings, and other events, is an appointee of President Donald Trump.

Judge Kelly, for his unconstitutional ruling, and maladministration of his constitutional oath, should be impeached, and replaced with a judge who understands the necessity of a judge to abide by the enumeration doctrine (authority only vested if it is expressly granted by the U.S. Constitution).
