Trump Flips Out At Reporter: 'Don't Ever Talk To The President That Way'

Donald Trump lashed out during a Thanksgiving press conference at a reporter who pushed back against his false claims of election fraud, calling the journalist a “lightweight” and telling him, “I’m the president of the United States.” Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason asked Trump if he will concede when the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden. “Well if they do, they made a mistake, because this election was a fraud,” Trump replied, before launching into a tirade about the number of votes Biden got compared to former President Barack Obama. When Mason interrupted this lengthy digression, Trump snapped, “Don’t talk to me that way.” ″You’re just a lightweight. 不要那样跟我说话. 我是美国总统.
