JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

President Donald Trump continued his vendetta against the media on Wednesday by lashing out at individual reporters he deems “hostile.”

After lashing out at CNN’s Jim Acosta and NBC’s Peter Alexander, Trump told American Urban Radio Networks’ April Ryan to “sit down” and scolded her for “rudely interrupting” another reporter.

Very hostile. Such a hostile media. It’s so sad,” he said, interrupting the same reporter he accused Ryan of speaking over. “You ask me — no, you rudely interrupted him. You rudely interrupted him. Go ahead.”
