President Trump Scolds Rude Reporter, “Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way”

President Trump: "You're just a lightweight."


President Donald Trump is not taking any more from the fake news.

Like most Americans, Presient Trump has had all he can handle from the lies, the arrogance, and the rudeness of the mainstream media.

A reporter from Reuters rudely interrupted the president during a tense exchange, after asking him if he would concede to the decision of the electoral college.

The president, who was attempting to answer the question, instead gave an opportunity to another reporter, scolding the first for his interruption.

President Donald Trump snapped at a White House reporter on Thursday and called him a "lightweight" after the reporter asked if Trump would concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden.

"Don't talk to me that way. You're just a lightweight. Don't talk to me that — I'm the president of the United States. Don't ever talk to the president that way," Trump told Jeff Mason, a White House correspondent for Reuters.

Daily Mail has more on the tense exchange:

President Trump blasted a White House correspondent during a testy exchange on Thursday, branding the reporter ‘lightweight’ for speaking over him to ask if he would concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden.

‘I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way,' Trump told Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason on Thursday during a heated question-and-answer session in the White House.

Trump later said it's a 'very hard thing to concede' the election, but admitted he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden.

But he stopped short of admitting that meant he had lost - despite Biden's huge lead in Electoral College votes  and refused to say if he would attend the inauguration.

The meeting was the first time the president had taken questions from the press since Election Day.

Trump spoke to reporters in the White House’s ornate Diplomatic Reception Room after holding a teleconference with members of the US military stationed across the globe.

He thanked the troops for their service and jokingly warned them not to eat too much turkey, then turned to the election after ending the call.

President Trump rightly called out the fake news media yet again on Twitter.

The petty media are taking their shots now, but we'll see who has the last word.
