Trump Just Messed With The Wrong Journalist

Trump just tried to sass April Ryan and he failed, obviously

Donald Trump had arguably his most shambolic press conference to date last week.

There were a few fails, with varying degrees of severity, depending on your perspective.

A Jewish reporter (after clearly stating he was not accusing Tump himself, or his government, of anti-semitism, even mentioning the fact that Trump has Jewish family members) asked him about a rise in anti-semitic feeling in the country and what the Government's plan was to curb this.

Trump appears to have responded by calling the man a liar and insinuating he was sneaky and untrustworthy for asking the question.

Don't believe us, you can watch the clip below for yourself:

The deep, tragic irony of this exchange appears to have gone completely over Trump's toupé.

Likewise, Trump spent a large proportion of the Press Conference bashing reporters and the wider media for creating fake stories and fake news.

He then lied about having the biggest electoral-margin since Reagan... and CNN pulled him up on it.

He batted this criticism away, by talking over the reporter until the the reporter gave the most depressing statement of all time, ever, 'You're president'.

One of the best / worst moments of the press conference, which deployed the most macabre humour, was when Trump tried to clap back to black reporter, April Ryan.

One of Trump's principle promises during his campaign was that he would sort out inner city issues which largely focussed on the black community.

Trump managed a 2 per cent rise, from 6 per cent to 8 per cent, in black votes from Mitt Romney in 2012.

April Ryan asked Trump about his plans to talk to the Congressional Black Caucus about his urban plans.

Firstly, he forgot what the the acronym meant (let's give him the benefit of the doubt on this - he might not have heard, it's pretty hectic in there etc), then he tried to sass April Ryan.

Now, Trump, we don't want to undermine your intelligence, but it'a not a great idea to suggest that all black people know each other.

Ryan actually admitted she did know some of them - being a White House Correspondent and all.

But, that's also the thing Trump doesn't seem to get - that she is a White House Correspondent...not secretary.

He didn't seem to understand how things work, at all.

And who April Ryan is.

And what her job is.

April Ryan was a class act and told him to kindly eff off in the politest way ever.

And the CBC themselves exposed their attempts to contact the President.

Perhaps their letter never got to him?

If so Trump should probably fire his real secretary.
