President-elect Donald Trump, during a live press conference took aim at “fake news” after the fall out from a unverified dossier story that was published by Buzzfeed, and reported on by CNN.

Trump called Buzzfeed, “failing piece of garbage,” just prior to starting a shouting match with CNN‘s white house correspondent Jim Acosta.

At first Acosta was attempting to address Trump’s criticism saying, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?” Not amused by the question or CNN in general Trump responded, ““Not you, your organization is terrible!”

The exchange turned into a screaming match with Trump ultimately telling Acosta, “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”

    I’m not surprised by this as it’s what Trump has been doing with the “press” all along. Trump’s background is Construction. He talks like everyone I know in the Construction sector talks and reacts. I have no problem with it. I would have a problem if he was wrong but so far he hasn’t been proven wrong when it comes to the “press.”
