CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to ask Donald Trump a question at the president-elect’s Wednesday press conference. Trump responded by telling Acosta,
“you are fake news.”
Acosta opened the exchange by shouting at Trump, “since you’re attacking us, can you give us a question?”
“No, not you,” Trump responded, but Acosta didn’t throw in the towel.
“You’re attacking our news organization,” he persisted, prompting Trump to state, “your news organization is terrible.”
Acosta continued to pester Trump until the president-elect pointed at him and stated, “don’t be rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.
