President Trump scolded CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for attempting to cut in during a news conference in the Oval Office on Thursday.
Many of the media's questions involved the articles of impeachment being delivered to the Senate earlier in the day as well as the 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," Trump said about Parnas.
It was then that Acosta tried to squeeze in his own questions,...
"Quiet," the president told Acosta, and the reporter obliged.

Wonder if little Jimmy peed in his pants when scolded by the president.
“...That’s the way to handle Little Jimmy....”
That’s ONE way to handle him.
The other way is to say “GTFO” and have security unceremoniously “help” out to the curb.
Ask someone a question and then not give them the space to answer. That’s called journalism, CNN style.
Trump ownes Acosta.
LOL! Appropriate. :^)
He did not want to end up in the Time Out room and get a reprimand letter placed in his Permanent File.
>>>That’s the way to handle Little Jimmy.<<<
Well, there is also pulling his press pass . . .
Why has that disruptive propagandist troll been allowed back into the WH? I saw a clip of this on OAN and couldn’t believe what an ass Acosta made of himself.
Meanwhile the honored guests Trump was hosting in the Oval Office, who were there to hear his announcement on the Guidance on Constitutional Prayer in public schools, were rudely ignored.
The press does this constantly which is an insult to the people who have come there about an issue they care deeply about and often have worked hard on. Including heads of state who ought to berate the press for it before Trump gets the chance. These meetings are important to them.
Yep...The WH tried that already, little Jimmy and CNN cried like babies to a judge and the turkey of a judge backed them.

Trump finally has a dog to command.
Yep, and a worthless one at that. :^)
Can’t stop laughing over here..... Good one!
I think that Trump is partly to blame for these horrible press attacks in the Oval Office. If he would have made clear, at any point in his Presidency, that ONLY questions related to the dignitary or issue at hand would be answered, he would have stopped this rudeness. I find these press availabilities embarrassing to our country.
Trump likes the back and forth with the press and he gets the better of them but the Oval Office is not the appropriate place. The helicopter pressers or a general press conference are the places.
Haven’t paid attention in a couple of days. What did this Parnas person say about Trump? Something like he had sex with monkeys while watching the Gorilla Channel?
Nope. Hes too stupid to recognize that he was scolded.
