White House suspends press access for CNN's Jim Acosta

Following yesterday's midterm elections, which saw the Democrats take control of the House while Republicans increased their majority in the Senate, Donald Trump's words and actions are beyond atrocious, even by Donald Trump standards. At a press conference today, Trump fully lost it. "It's a very bad thing what you said", the President said.

He said that "I can do something fantastic, and they make it look not good".

After being questioned about the migrant caravan and Russian Federation investigation during a post-midterms press conference, the president lashes out at the "rude, terrible" CNN chief White House correspondent.

At one point in the questioning, Trump told Acosta: "Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".

President Trump had scolded the reporter earlier on Wednesday when he asked about the migrant caravan and the Russian Federation investigation.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also confirmed the suspension of Acosta's press pass to the White House on Twitter, saying Acosta's conduct "is absolutely unacceptable". The way that you treat other people is awful. "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you're the enemy of the people". He said he's damned by the press for having either too few, too many or just the right amount of press availabilities. "Such a racist question".

Alcindor asked Trump whether his recent embrace of the label "nationalist" emboldened white nationalists across the country. She said that "on the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist".

"To say that as you said that to me is so insulting". "It's a very bad thing you said to me".

Then, to push this into full constitutional crisis mode, Trump asked Jeff Sessions to resign (aka fired him) as Attorney General.
