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!!
