Well, it’s about time!
God bless the media for finding their nerve and FINALLY calling out Trumplethinskin on his bullshit.
The president had a “press conference” today that involved no actual conferencing, just Trump bloviating from a podium for a few minutes before signing a random memorandum before dashing out the back door. That’s when CNN’s increasingly combative Jim Acosta accosted him, asking why it took him so long to condemn the hate groups behind this weekend’s tragic rally in Charlottesville.
Trump tetchily responded, “They’ve been condemned. They have been condemned.”
Acosta then asked: “And why are we not having a press conference today? You said on Friday you’d have a press conference.”
To which Trump replied “We’ve had a press conference. We just had a press conference.”
“Can we ask you some more questions, sir?” asked Acosta, knowing he pushing his luck.
“It doesn’t bother me at all, but you know I like real news, not fake news. You’re fake news.”
As Trump walked out, Acosta yelled, “Haven’t you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?”
MORE OF THIS, PLEASE!
Jim Accosta is quickly becoming my favorite journalist.
Watch the exchange below.
