Tuesday's US midterm election resulted in Trump's Republicans strengthening their grip on the Senate. At a press conference today, Trump fully lost it. He called CNN's Jim Acosta a "rude, awful person" and excoriated PBS' Yamiche Alcindor for asking "a racist question" when she attempted to probe him on whether his rhetoric was emboldening white nationalists.
"I'll tell you what: CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump said.
The confrontation between US President Donald Trump and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta has escalated with the journalist being banned from the White House. You should not be working for CNN. The way you treat Sarah Sanders is frightful. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is disgusting".
"Just sit down, please", Trump responded, as the two talked over each other.
"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration". "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

Gillum, who is facing former congressman Ron DeSantis for governor, also drew praise from Obama for his humble upbringing. Trump said having Rosendale in the Senate will be "phenomenal". "You have the opportunity to make history this election".
"This president's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far". She said that "on the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist".
Alcindor was asking for Trump's reaction to the sentiment that his pre-election anti-immigration comments emboldened racists and white nationalists, when Trump interrupted, as he had done several times throughout the contentious back-and-forth with members of the media. Alcindor pressed on. "There are some people who say the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of your rhetoric".
"To say that as you said that to me is so insulting. It's a very bad thing that you said".
Then, to push this into full constitutional crisis mode, Trump asked Jeff Sessions to resign (aka fired him) as Attorney General.
