Donald Trump has long had issues with the free press, for no other reason besides the fact that the media refuses to create positive content about Trump that he doesn’t deserve. Trump has repeatedly threatened to remove press credentials, has banned certain networks and reporters from events, and has repeatedly attacked individual reporters publicly — and today Trump reminded America just how much he hates being asked for the truth.
Trump hosted South Korean president Moon Jae-in in the Oval Office today, taking questions from reporters — which quickly turned into him blatantly hushing and shutting them down for asking him questions that would make him look bad.
While Trump was taking questions about the newly uncovered setbacks he might fact with North Korea in regards to the upcoming denuclearization summit, one reporter dared to bring up his recent meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Chris Wray, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.
Trump, to put it lightly, was not having it. Trump not only wouldn’t provide an answer, but he publicly berated the reporter for asking about the meeting while Moon was in the room. He said:
What’s your next question please. I have the president of South Korea here. He doesn’t want to hear these questions, if you don’t mind.”
Moon tried to smile through Trump’s rude behavior, but he was visibly uncomfortable and stunned.
Interestingly enough, Trump still found within himself to whine about how “very illegal” it would be if his campaign had been spied on by the FBI — even though he had completely dodged the Rosenstein question.
You can watch this unbelievable moment below:
