Explaining how disgusted he was by the release of a false and defamatory so-called “CIA dossier” alleging Trump’s dealing with and while in Russia, Donald Trump blew up.
Explaining his tweet that he felt like he was living in Nazi Germany, Trump said:
“I think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake” to get out, Trump says. Just like Nazi Germany, he says.
“As far as Buzzfeed which is a failing pile of garbage writing it, I think they’re going to suffer the consequences, and they already are.”
Then the questioning turned to CNN White House Reporter Jim Acosta – CNN was one of the stations that ran with information from the BuzzFeed article – Trump would have none of it. CNN was one of the media outlets that mentioned the false report.
The reporter started: “Since you are attacking our organization, can you give us a chance –“ Trump responded: “No, no. Your organization is terrible.”
Acosta kept talking.
“Don’t be rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are not going to get a question. You are fake news,” he said flatly to them, refusing to take a question and turning to another reporter.
