Donald Trump is clearly furious over midterm results and he can’t keep it together as his mental instability reaches an all-time high. Unfortunately, we’re already seeing how devastating this is going to be for America.
Trump just had a press conference with America’s free press and he went completely insane and unhinged as reporters asked him legitimate questions that the public deserves to know. Things got extremely testy when CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Trump about his caravan claims, and Trump immediately got nasty and resorted to calling Acosta a “terrible person” and much more. As Acosta continued to keep the pressure on Trump, who was desperate to escape the situation (and even left the podium at one point), Trump exploded.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller reported that Trump said:
That’s enough, Put down the mike.You are a rude, terrible person.
The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.”
Pres responds angrily to @Acosta. Trump answered question about the caravan and didn’t want any more from him. “That’s enough, Put down the mike,” Trump told Acosta. “You are a rude, terrible person,” the pres said, adding, “the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.” pic.twitter.com/YrsEVKKvm2

But Trump was just getting started. Continuing to attack Acosta, the president said:
I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them.”
Trump eventually took the next question after a tense exchange with Acosta, giving the mic to NBC’s Peter Alexander. When Alexander defended Acosta, Trump attacked him as well — eventually attacking both reporters at the same time. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan also tried to ask the president a question, but Trump shut her down.
This display of aggression toward the free press should prove to everyone — even the most spineless of Republicans — that Trump is not fit for the presidency. This video should worry every American because Trump is clearly unraveling. You can watch what happened below:
