Trump to rude CNN hack: ‘You are fake news’ — Video

The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Conservative Firing Line

On Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump held a press conference in which he labeled CNN “fake news.”  According to Breitbart, Trump refused to take a question from CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta who demanded he take a question.

Trump, Breitbart added, criticized the network for its recent report on him and Russia.  Acosta continued to interrupt Trump, demanding he be allowed to ask a question. Trump replied: “Your organization is terrible. … Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. … You are fake news.”

Here’s video of the exchange, which prompted applause from some in attendance:

Acosta then proceeded to lecture Trump, telling him his statement was inappropriate.  Later, the CNN operative said his question was asked by ABC’s Cecilia Vega.

One person noted:

@Acosta you are fake news!!
