Trump Explodes At Jim Acosta: You Are Rude Terrible Person And Shouldn’t Be Working For CNN [VIDEO]

USA Today reports:

Trump refused to answer a follow-up question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who persisted in his attempt to ask the president about the Russia investigation. Trump spoke loudly over Acosta and demanded he hand over the microphone. “That’s enough,” Trump said repeatedly as Acosta continued to try and ask his question.

When a White House aide attempted to take the mic from him, Acosta yanked it back. “On the Russia investigation, are you concerned that you may…?” Acosta said before Trump interrupted him, saying, “I’m not concerned about anything with the Russia investigation because it’s a hoax.”

Trump stepped away from the lectern for a moment before returning to the microphone. “I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them,” the president said, shaking a finger at Acosta. “You are a rude, terrible person.”

“You are a very rude person,” Trump continued. “The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible,” he said, referring to the White House press secretary. When NBC’s Peter Alexander tried to stand up for his peer, Trump turned his ire on him as well. “I’m not a big fan of yours either, to be honest,” the President said.
