CNN’s resident jerk tried arguing with Trump and tried to insinuate that Trump hadn’t condemned white supremacist hate groups enough. Then Trump responded with something incredible.
Watch it in the amazing 50-second video below.
Jim Acosta knockout.
“They’ve been condemned. They have been condemned,” Trump responded.
Acosta then asked why Trump wasn’t holding a press conference even though he had just held a press conference this morning.
Trump then cut right to the chase and said he “just had a press conference.” Acosta then asked if he could ask more questions.
Here is how Trump responded.
“IT DOESN’T BOTHER ME AT ALL, BUT YOU KNOW, I LIKE REAL NEWS, NOT FAKE NEWS. YOU’RE FAKE NEWS.”
Trump then left the room. Acosta sure got the message: shut the hell up.
“As the president was walking out, I responded that he has spread plenty of fake news himself,” Acosta tweeted right after. “The president said we just had a press conference. We did not. That’s fake news.”
The president said we just had a press conference. We did not. That’s fake news.
