Trump Lays Smack Down on Fake News

While in Britain, Trump gave a total smack down to CNN’s Jim Acosta. The Daily Caller reports:

President Donald Trump called CNN “fake news” when the network’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta tried to ask a question during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May Friday.

Trump told Acosta that he preferred taking a question from a “real” news network. “No, John Roberts, go ahead,” Trump repeated. “CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news.” Acosta countered that CNN is also a “real network.”

Acosta did get his chance, however. As Trump was walking away from the podium after the conclusion of the press conference, Acosta shouted a question, as he is known to do.

“Mr. President, will you tell Putin to stay out of U.S. elections?” Acosta asked.

 Acosta has been known to use his platform as a White House correspondent to parrot Democratic talking points and shout questions.
