Even before Donald Trump ran for President he threw tantrums whenever he was asked a question he did not like. After blowing off John Dickerson in the Oval Office this weekend, CNN cut together a segment that shows he has had this immature habit for years. (Video below.)
It’s not only the walkouts that caught the attention of CNN’s Jeanne Moos, it’s the way he does it: “dismissive wave, interview over.”
Among the highlights with legitimate journalists, the segment includes Trump walking out on a satirical interview with Ali G — seemingly with no clue how he had been played.
Trump likes to play the tough guy, but Moos points out, “Trump tends to be harder on the microphone than the interviewer.”
Well done, CNN.
