You Can't Illegally Jump Trump's Fence Mr. Ramos
Univision reporter and immigration advocate Jorge Ramos jumped a line of reporters and began asking questions of Donald Trump. Trump told him to sit down because he had not been called to ask a question. Ramos persisted and Trump had him deported him from the venue.
Ramos claimed that he had a "right" to ask his question. No, he didn't. Ramos certainly had a "right" to wait in line with the other journalists at the event, and he might even have had a "right" to be vexed if he’d been obviously passed over.
But he certainly didn’t have a right to stand up and make a scene, nor to disrupt the proceedings for everybody else. Having a press credential in your pocket does not entitle you to behave like Code Pink.
So, just as people illegally cross the southern border daily without regard to the many people who go about applying for citizenship legally, Trump said, "Go back to Univision.
The liberal media, ABC, CBS and obviously NBC all reported that Ramos was singled out and some reporters seemed to object (citing the day when during a white house press conference, when a FOX News reoorter was snubbed.
Interestingly, ABC is owned by Disney who also owns Univision, who is being sued by Trump for breach of contract over Univision's decision not to air the Miss America pageant which Trump owns.
