After the President's news conference spun out of control, I said both the President and CNN's Jim Acsota behaved beneath the dignity of their office.

Here's what you had to say about it:

First, Michelle in Mustang says, “I have to disagree with you on this one Kelly. Jim Acosta has continually disrespected the presidency."

Ninety percent of your responses were like that.

A few were like Don's who says, "Acosta's only crime was having the nerve to ask the President tough, but fair questions. This White House is a disgrace."

Jim in Forth Worth writes, "Kelly... Your father would be rolling in his grave if he saw what passed for "journalism" now. Jack did it right and he gave respect whether he liked the individual or not."

Carla in Ardmore writes, "I have always been a fan of yours Kelly, but you're wrong on this one! Acosta should respect the office of the President."

But Lacie thinks I was too hard on Acosta, "So, I have heard you talk on your last few segments and I believe you have become too biased to be doing this segment. The CNN reporter was doing their job."

And a few of you, like Carol in Wellston asked about this, "I love you to pieces, but when you said "Mr. Trump" that threw me for a loop…"

It's common practice by journalists, although I rarely do it. I called him Mr. Trump because I referred to him as the President three words later. Calling him "Mister" is another way to honor him.

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's Your 2 Cents.
