The president celebrated a congressman's violent assault on a reporter Thursday night. President Donald Trump continued to press the boundaries of liberal democracy on Thursday night when he endorsed and cheered a lawmaker's assault on a member of the press that occurred in May 2017. The president praised Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MO) and the fact that he used a bodyslam to silence a reporter who asked him about health care the day before a special election, calling the GOP representative "my kind of guy."Over and above the obvious norm-breaching that a celebration of violence against the press represents, however, CNN's Jim Acosta provided additional disturbing details revealing the disturbing effect this rhetoric has on Trump's fans beyond the view of the cameras."The disturbing part of Trump’s jokes about Gianforte was the effect on the crowd," Acosta said on Twitter. "I saw one young man in the crowd making body slam gestures."He continued: "He looked at me and ran his t...

Caption Close EAST HARTFORD, Conn.

Sargent, an 18-year-old who has yet to play a first-team professional match, made his second international start and fifth appearance. He scored off a training routine in the 49th minute when Kellyn Acosta took a free kick from flank and sent the ball along the ground toward the middle of the penalty area.

A Colombian team lead by James Rodriguez roared past a game but inexperienced United States 4-2 on Thursday in an international football friendly in Tampa, Florida. James put the Cafeteros in the lead with a spectacular effort from the edge of the penalty area in the 36th minute, thrilling a largely pro-Colombia crowd at Raymond James Stadium.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Carlos Bacca, Radamel Falcao and Miguel Borja scored second-half goals to lead Colombia over the United States 4-2 on Thursday night in an exhibition that marked the return of American captain Michael Bradley to the national team following a one-year absence. James Rodriguez put Colombia ahead with a pretty curling shot from just inside the penalty area in the 36th, but the U.S. regrouped and took a 2-1 lead on goals by Kellyn Acosta in the 50th minute and Bobby Wood in the 53rd.

He’s joined in the midfield by Kellyn Acosta and Julian Green, as Wil Trapp is dropped after captaining the team on a few occasions in 2018. The back five is a familiar one, and might be a set unit going forward in the event all five players are healthy. Colombia looks to be playing two strikers, with Carlos Bacca and Radamel Falcao up top.

Monday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” network chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said President Donald Trump knew “what mob rule and mob tactics look like because he encourages them.” Acosta said, “It’s pretty remarkable what he’s saying, Brooke.

He was talking about the battle over Brett Kavanaugh and some of the allegations that were brought forward. And he said, quote, ‘It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil.’ So the president is putting this in some very stark — I mean just the most pointed terms possible.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Wayne Rooney scored twice in the second half to raise his season total to nine goals in 16 matches, and D.C. United rallied to beat the Chicago Fire 2-1 on Sunday. A former England captain who made his Major League Soccer debut in July, the 32-year-old striker has five goals in his last three games. Rooney tied the score in the 62nd minute when his slight deflection of Paul Arriola's cross caused goalkeeper Stefan Cleveland to bobble the ball, and Rooney tapped home the rebound. Rooney converted a penalty kick in the 81st after Junior Moreno drew a foul. Rooney had a goal disallowed in the 21st on video review for a foul by Luciano Acosta off the ball.

Over the course of his first two and a half seasons with D.C. United, there was plenty of times when Luciano Acosta would get the ball in the box, with an opportunity to score a goal, and wasted the chance. The Argentine play-maker, who made the move to the States from Boca Juniors back in February 2016, had nine goals in 75 games to his name before the arrival of Wayne Rooney in July this year. A decent total for a creative player. But on so many of those occasions, Acosta would look to be the supplier for someone else, passing up scoring opportunities. “How many games have you seen where he gets himself in these great spots in the box?” Acosta’s coach, Ben Olsen, said during an interview with

This farfetched theory just became a lot more plausible. Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court hangs on a knife's edge, and President Donald Trump isn't helping. On Tuesday night, he decided to lash out and mock Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, mocking her for her memory lapses. Many Republicans called Trump out for this contemptible behavior.Why would Trump act this way when its so clearly a bad move for his nominee?Two guests on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" with Nicolle Wallace suggested a surprising answer: Maybe Trump wants Kavanaugh's nomination to fail."We expect a certain level of behavior when he's in his element and he's talking to all the Whos in Whoville, okay?" said Mike Lupica, MSNBC contributor. "But he did cross a line last night.

It was a stunning moment in American politics. CNN's Jake Tapper observed with dismay Wednesday that President Donald Trump had abandoned any pretense the night before that he has compassion for Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Though he has previously called her "very credible," at a campaign rally Tuesday night, Trump turned Ford "into an object of ridicule," Tapper explained. Trump mocked Ford's story for having holes in it, despite the fact that this is common in sexual assault allegations. He imitated Ford in a dull monotone and exaggerated the extent of her memory lapses."Let's just take a closer look at what President Trump was doing here," Tapper said Wednesday. "Provoking laughter. Evoking a specific reaction from some of those in the crowd."Replaying video of the rally, Tapper showed how the audience delighted in Trump's mockery.

The rest of the half though, was dominated by an Impact side that tends to be more reactive, sitting deeper and looking to hit opponents on the counter attack. Instead of the norm, Montreal controlled possession, had a majority of the chances, and were maybe a bit unfortunate to be trailing at the break.
