A cranky Donald Trump gets into verbal altercation with CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Well, that was very presidential.

Courtesy of The Hill:

President Trump on Wednesday sparred with reporter Jim Acosta in a press conference, at one point calling him a “rude, terrible person” and telling him CNN should be “ashamed” of employing him.

The heated exchange began after Acosta questioned Trump over his characterization of the migrant caravan heading toward the southern U.S. border. As Acosta pressed Trump on his past comments regarding the caravan, the president appeared to grow increasingly angry.

“CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you working for them,” Trump said after Acosta gave up the mic. “You are a rude, terrible person.”

He then said Acosta shouldn’t be working for the network.

Trump’s barbs came after Acosta, a frequent critic of the White House, questioned Trump’s characterization of the migrant caravan as an “invasion.”

“I consider it to be an invasion,” Trump responded.

“Well Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion, it’s a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border.”

Here’s another angle on the altercation. 

Did you see that staffer attempting to pull the microphone out of Jim Acosta’s hand?

This was actually only one of a number of very contentious responses that Trump gave reporters during this press conference today.

He also got pissed off at a reporter who asked him if his claim of being a nationalist was racist, and really lost it when another reporter pointed out that his actual approval ratings among African Americans were only 8% after Trump claimed they were the “highest ever.”

But at least those reporters had the opportunity to ask their questions, he just kept telling April Ryan to sit down when she tried to get a response.

What a shit show this whole thing was today.

And clearly, despite what he said repeatedly, Trump is NOT happy with the way the midterms turned out last night.

    Bottom line is he never really answered any of the questions posed to him. He side stepped each one! I was waiting for the big bad wolf to come out and try to blow the house down.

      Hmmmmm, Interesting.

      I was thinking about that earlier this morning.

      Maybe if enough of us think the same thoughts about what all that fast food, diet coke, sugar, and no exercise are doing to his heart, we can make it happen.

      Sort of like in “It’s a Wonderful Life…..”

    Good for them, finally.

    How can it be an invasion when the caravan just arrived in Mexico City? last time I looked Mexico City is no where near the border.

    Since they haven’t reached the border, how does trump know they aren’t going to try and enter the country legally, asking for asylum? Because he doesn’t care, he needed someone to demonize for the election and this will continue for the next two years.

    Baby bumpkins had better up his blood pressure medication.

    He certainly wins the rudest president ever award, in fact I am so sick of listening to him I didn’t watch is

    now that the election is over and we all see where the chips fell, i wonder if suddenly trump will continue crying the sky is falling. the irritating thing about these republican assholes is that they believe shit that is not true. they better believe putin is coming tho. and there those of us that have been saying it all along. the republican fears use to be the russians were coming thru the back door. putin is an evil genius and he is coming thru the front door.

      Well if Russia invaded the USA, I know someone who can show up in person and can ask Putin. What are you doing here? Don’t you have a country to run? Oh. Right. The $$$. Yes. Let’s go talk about this in the global courts? No? Well I think it is time to correct history.
      Putin? Putin? He left the country. Wink.

    Look how that fat orange fuck mocked the foreign reporters who had accents; “I don’t understand you” – until an American reporter retorted to fatso, “I’m from Brooklyn; do you understand me”?
    Fuckin’-A Bubba!!!
    And just now, that moron Sarah Sanders announced that Acosta’s White House press credentials have been fuckin’ revoked!!!

    A new low, now they suspended Acosta’s WH press credentials saying that HE assaulted the women. she is the one that touched him FOUR times.

    While I was watching it on tv, it looked to me like she actual grabbed his arm, but it could have been the mic.

      I know it is important to get their LIES on video, but I think it would be great if the press didn’t show up for briefings for a few days in protest of these false accusations and the deplorable treatment they are getting.

      It would be refreshing not to have to listen to HuckaLiar and the bozo occupant of the WH for a few days. It might work since trump loves his media exposure and he can always run to FOX for his daily ranting.

    And Scarah Hucksterbee Slanders is mow lying that Acosta hit the woman that was sent in to retrieve the mic. She’s been called on her LIE by journalists present, even the conservatives are calling her out on her lie but she’s doubling down and tweeting an enhanced video.

    What I see is him talking and gesturing and she sticks her arm in the middle of it.
