U.S President-elect, Donald Trump has, during his first press conference after his election, said to the American popular media organization, The Cable News Network (CNN), ” “You Are Fake News” for publishing an unsubstantiated report about Russia having compromising information on him.
Trump then unleashed on Buzzfeed, another news media which alone published the 35-page memo behind the Russian allegations, saying “ Buzzfeed which is a failing pile of garbage… will suffer the consequences ”
And then, in an even more stunning episode, Trump slammed CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump.
With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”
“Not you,” Trump said. “ Your organization is terrible!”
Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”
“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “Don’t be rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!” Trump responded, before calling on a reporter from Breitbart.
