Trump sends CNN to the BACK ROW at press event (Hilarious Mark Dice video)


Jim Acosta of CNN was beside himself in sorrow on Friday (June 9) when he was relegated to the back of the pack at a White House press event. While the other major media outlets got front-row seats, Acosta was put in "media Siberia." 

The Hill reports on the situation.
“We were in the equivalent of Siberia, no pun intended, when it comes to where we were seated,” CNN’s Jim Acosta told Wolf Blitzer on Friday night. “That could be seen as an oversight on the part of the White House staff but it could also be seen as retaliation over the reporting we’re doing over here at CNN.”

CNN reporters are typically seated with other cable news networks at the front of press events so that their cameras have an unobstructed view for stand up live shots.

The White House has occasionally changed seating arrangements in the past for various reasons, however during Friday’s event Trump specifically called out the cable news networks for treating him "so badly."

"Should I take one of the killer networks that treat me so badly as fake news?" Trump asked, before calling on ABC’s Jon Karl.
Mark Dice chimed in on the "controversy," posting a video commentary raking Acosta over the coals. Here's the video.



The White House has not yet responded to the incident.
