Donald Trump Viciously Attacks CNN Reporter Jim Acosta

Donald Trump Viciously Attacks CNN Reporter Jim Acosta

This one may have been the worst yet. Per a tweet from his personal account, the president "will be discussing [Republicans'] success in the Midterms".

The two got off to a rocky start when Acosta began his line of questioning. The latter switched the conversation to immigration. Acosta brought up the Trump ad that his network and others, including Fox News, refused to air as racist; it tied an illegal immigrant murderer to the caravan and warned of a Democratic takeover.

"I will tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them-you are a rude, bad person, you shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said. CNN released a statement calling the president "dangerous", claiming that he "does not respect a free press".

CNN's Jim Acosta apparently decided the day after the midterms was a good day to make himself the story once again. "That's enough. Put down the mic", Trump said.

ACOSTA: If you don't mind, Mr. President.

The exchange between Trump and CNN's professional provocateur quickly escalated, which ended up with Trump embarrassing Acosta.

During the CNN reporter's heated clash with the president, a White House aide tried to cut Acosta off and take away his microphone. "It's so sad", Trump said.

"Why do I have my highest poll numbers ever with African-Americans?"

The CNN panelists agreed with Ryan, however, that the president's behavior was unacceptable. "You and I have a difference of opinion", Trump replied. "It makes no sense at all".

Trump fired back, using his Twitter feed to call her a "crazed, crying lowlife" and 'that dog'.

The poll also noted that Trump had 29 percent support among black people on August 6, compared with 15 percent on August 3, 2017. They are concerned the word nationalism is "code" for white nationalism.

But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for Trump after a campaign that became a referendum on his leadership. It was not meant to be insulting.
