President Trump went off on fake news reporter Jeff Mason calling him a “lightweight” and telling him, “Don’t ever talk to the president that way.”
Mason had questioned President Trump on whether he would concede the election if the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden, to which the president responded,
“Well if they do, they made a mistake, because this election was a fraud.”
“Just so you understand, this election was a fraud,” I mean, they have Biden beating Obama. And Obama’s vote, in areas that mattered in terms of the election, in swing states. And yet, he’s losing to Obama all over the place, but he’s Obama in swing states, which are the states that mattered for purposes of the election.”
“So no, I can’t say that at all. I think it’s a possibility… they’re trying to, look, between you people…”
Trump continued to rip the correspondent.
“Don’t talk to me that way,” the president fired back. “You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. Don’t talk to… I’m the President of the United States! Don’t ever talk to the president that way. Alright, I’m going to go with another question.”
