Trump Shuts Down Jim Acosta During U.K. Presser: ‘I Don’t Take Questions From CNN’

If you thought for a moment that President Donald Trump might suspend his media-bashing during his trip to the United Kingdom, think again.

During Trump’s press conference with Prime Minister Theresa May, CNN’s Jim Acosta called out a question as the president called on Fox News’ John Roberts. Of course, Trump didn’t like that:

“CNN is fake news,” he shouted at Acosta. “I don’t take questions from CNN.”

Trump continued to give the question to Roberts, saying “let’s go to a real network.”

“We’re a real network, too, sir,” Acosta retorted, but his question went unasked, and Roberts stayed quietly on the sidelines until the skirmish was done — and failed to point out, when he asked his own question, that CNN is very much a real news network.
