Angry Trump Kicks CBS Reporter Out Of Oval Office
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, May 1 2017

Having been pestered by CBS reporter John Dickerson over what great advice Pres Obama had given him (and his wiretapping accusations), Pres Trump’s frustration briefly boiled over as he turned his back and remarked “ok, that’s enough, thank you, goodbye,” gesturing for the reporter to leave The Oval Office. As Washington Free Beacon reports, the exchange which aired Monday began when Dickerson asked Trump if his predecessor had given him any advice since taking office. Trump said Obama had been “very nice” initially but since then there had been “difficulties” he described as “inappropriate.” He said:

Words are less important to me than deeds, and you saw what happened with surveillance.

Trump was referring to a claim he made on Mar 4 that Obama tapped his phones during the presidential campaign. There is no evidence to substantiate the claim, but Trump has never retracted it. When Dickerson pressed for details about the surveillance, Trump responded:

Look, you can figure it out yourself! He was very nice to me with words, and when I was with him, but after that there has been no relationship!

Dickerson repeated his questioning about the wiretapping claim against Obama. The reason he asked, he said, was that Trump called Obama “sick” and “bad” in the Mar 4 tweet-storm that kicked off the saga. Trump simply said:

You can take it any way you want!

Dickerson said:

But I’m asking you because you don’t want it to be fake news! I want to hear it from President Trump!

Trump said:

You don’t have to ask me!

Dickerson asked:

Why not?

Trump said:

Because I have my own opinions! You can have your own opinions!

Dickerson said:

But I want to hear your opinions! You’re the POTUS!

Trump finally waved his hand at Dickerson, saying:

OK, that’s enough! Thank you! Thank you very much!
