CNN’s Jake Tapper responded to Donald Trump’s outburst at a reporter on Thursday with a stark reminder for the president ― that he won’t be in office for much longer.
Trump snapped at Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason for interrupting him during one of his lengthy, conspiracy theory-filled rambles in a press conference that followed the president’s video chat with service members for Thanksgiving.
“Don’t talk to me that way,” Trump told Mason. “You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the president of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way.”

The excellent journalist @jeffmason1 is on the other end of this spectacle. Jeff will still be working at the White House after January 20, 2021. https://t.co/OJoGCvzUrG
