President Donald Trump reprimanded Fake News chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for attempting to cut in during a news conference in the Oval Office yesterday.
During the news conference, many members of the media had questions regarding various claims made by Lev Parnas, an associate to Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
“I don’t know him. I have never had a conversation that I remember with him,” President Trump said about Parnas.
It was at this moment that Acosta attempted to sneak in his own questions, asking about Parnas’ claims that former National Security Adviser John Bolton and acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney “knew” about efforts to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for announced investigations into the Bidens’ dealings there.
“Quiet,” the president scolded Acosta.
