President Trump dropped the hammer on a rude White House reporter yesterday during a short press conference.
“You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States,” Trump said in response to one question.
“Don’t ever talk to the President that way,” Trump added. (See video below)
This comes after a Democrat finally broke with the media and called them out for their behavior.
Now, true, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was getting the ‘Trump treatment’ from the media and he didn’t like it one bit but regardless of how he got there, it was good to see him defend President Trump and rip the media for not showing the proper respect to the office, not the man, of the president.
Cuomo told WAMC radio that the media has taken a turn for the worse and now uses a “nastier tone,” which he said he has even noticed at his press conferences. He then called out the media and said it’s a “disrespect that never existed.”
“The way they question President Trump at some of these press conferences is just – I’ve never heard that tone with the president,” Cuomo said.
“There are reporters who just are unprofessional, don’t know the facts and ask really biased questions,” Cuomo said.
“You want to say ‘well I don’t like the president and I disrespect him,’ I know but it’s still the office of the president.”
