Donald Trump scolded CNN reporter Dana Bash for asking a “very insulting” question about what he would say to those criticizing him for “taking time out of swing states” to make an appearance Wednesday at opening of his latest hotel, Washington’s Trump International.
“For you to ask me that question is actually very insulting. Hillary Clinton does one stop, and then she goes home and sleeps, and yet you’ll ask me that question,” Trump said. “I think it’s a very rude question, to be honest with you.”
Trump argued he’s plenty busy on the campaign trail, saying, “I say the following: You have been covering me for the last long time. I did yesterday eight stops and three major speeches, and I’ve been doing this for weeks straight. I’m going to North Carolina right now, then I’m going to Florida, I’m going up to New Hampshire.”
Bash seems to have a knack for annoying the GOP candidate’s campaign. After the third presidential debate, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway simply walked away when CNN’s chief political correspondent asked her repeatedly if Trump would accept results of the election on Nov. 8.
Trump also grew tired of Bash’s repeated questions this time around when she pestered him for “how much” he’s willing to spend on ads in swing states where he is down in the polls. He urged her to move on from the subject by saying, “Let’s go to your next question, Donna.”
