The president regresses to name calling during the exchange calling the veteran journalist ‘a rude terrible person, you’re a very rude person, the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.’
‘When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people,’ Trump scolds Acosta.

‘They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American. While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it. A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere.’
During Trump’s combatative press conference on Wednesday however, he did manage to pat himself on the back for the success of certain candidates post midterm election night.
‘We saw the candidates I supported achieve tremendous success last night,’ Trump boasted. ‘We picked up a lot,’ he said.
DailyMail.com spoke to the Executive Producer of Modern Family, Danny Zuker, who has had his fair share of Twitter exchanges with the President.
Zuker explains that the Hollywood circle gets particularly incensed when it comes to attacks on the press.
‘I think the Hollywood community is sensitive to the attacks on the press first and foremost because we understand that without a free press you have fascism.’
Zuker, who currently has a book on the topic of Twitter and Trump, titled, ‘He Started It!: My Twitter War With Trump,’ adds ‘More specifically, this is a man who has had no problem making ‘Hollywood’ the enemy (with the exception of superstars like Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr.).’
Tiegen was blocked by the president previously.

Having been blocked herself last year, the model, 32, could not help but gloat about the news on her own Twitter – and poked fun at her upcoming ‘reunion’ with the President.
After the news broke, Tiegen shared a clip of a television report about it with her 10.6 million followers.
She teased the president in the caption, by writing: ‘well well well we meet again @realDonaldTrump.’
