Trump calls CNN “fake news” after being asked why didn’t criticize Nazis earlier

Donald Trump just flipped out on CNN’s Jim Acosta, who asked Trump at an event why he didn’t criticize the Charlottesville Nazis earlier.

Trump claimed he did condemn them. He didn’t mention that it took 48 hours of blistering criticism for Trump to finally do it.

When Acosta followed up with another question, Trump called him “fake news.”

Look at that face:

Acosta’s response? “Mr. President, haven’t you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?”

Trump turned away and left.

Here’s a clip:
