And the media wonders why Americans don’t trust them.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta came under fire on Wednesday for how he handled it when a female Trump staffer attempted to take the microphone away from him.

The moment preceded a very tense exchange with President Donald Trump over the migrant caravan and the president’s feelings about CNN.
“I think you should let me run the country, you ruin CNN — and if you did it well, you’re ratings would be much better,” Trump told the reporter.
Trump then told Acosta, “That’s enough.”
But he refused to give up the microphone, physically resisting the female Trump aide who attempted to retrieve it and give it to another reporter.

“That’s enough,” Trump barked.
He then unloaded on Acosta in front of the entire press corps when he continued shouting into the microphone.
“CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are rude, terrible person,” Trump said. “You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”
