President Donald Trump paused his post-midterms press briefing Wednesday to yell at CNN’s Jim Acosta, wagging his finger and calling him a “rude, terrible person” and adding that CNN should be “ashamed” to have him in their employ.

“You are a very rude person,” Trump continued. “The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible,” he said, referring to the White House press secretary.

When NBC’s Peter Alexander tried to stand up for his peer, Trump turned his ire on him as well. “I’m not a big fan of yours either, to be honest,” the President said.
