Watch: CNN Asks Trump A Question He HATES And He Makes Them Pay In 31 Seconds

When a CNN reporter questioned Donald Trump at an event in Norwood, Mass., Friday night about the two dozen or so pro-abortion rights protesters who showed up, the candidate did not give her the time of day.

“I don’t see many protesters. I see thousands of people and there’s a few protesters,” Trump replied. “And I figured you’d ask that question, because you know, that’s the way it is. CNN is terrible,” which drew cheers and applause from the audience. 

“You’re with CNN?” he confirmed. “You people do not cover us accurately at all. So they have a few protesters outside, and they have thousands of people, and the first question from CNN is about protesters.”

Trump then moved on to the next question, waving off the CNN reporter’s as not worth his time. 

The candidate has stated he is pro-life, but supports exceptions in cases of rape and incest and to save the life of the mother.

Friday’s dust up was not the first time Trump has taken exception to how a network news channel has treated him. As reported by Western Journalism, Trump went on a Twitter tirade following the first presidential debate, which was hosted by Fox News.

He tweeted: “I really enjoyed the debate tonight even though the @FoxNews trio, especially @megynkelly, was not very good or professional!”

He spent the days immediately after the debate doing interviews on other networks, including MSNBC and CNN.

In a recent interview, Trump said that, after some initial tension following the debate, he and Fox News head Roger Ailes are getting along again. The candidate has appeared on both Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly’s shows since the debate, both of whom he feels treat him fairly.

“We were at war because I felt that [Kelly’s debate question about women] was unfair, and I let [Ailes] know it. But it’s all fine now,” said Trump. “They were tough questions, and I thought inappropriate, but Roger didn’t, and I’ll go with Roger.”

Following another Twitter quarrel last week after Megyn Kelly returned to the air, Ailes called on Trump to apologize to the host. The Fox News chief defended Kelly, writing she “represents the best in American journalism,” after Trump tweeted: “I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly. Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled vacation!” He also retweeted a follower who wrote: 

Trump Tweet Kelly Bimbo

Trump did not apologize, but issued a statement which reads in part: “I totally disagree with the FOX statement. I do not think Megyn Kelly is a quality journalist. I think her questioning of me, despite all of the polls saying I won the debate, was very unfair. Hopefully in the future I will be proven wrong and she will be able to elevate her standards to a level of professionalism that a network such as FOX deserves.”

Ben Carson Hits Back Hard Against CNN’s Secular-Progressive Movement

In an unfamiliar fashion, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson reared his hackles in a CNN interview after Jim Acosta took Carson’s comments about using drones at the border out of context.

“Listen. Read my lips. Read my lips, listen very carefully to what I am saying,” Carson said.

Carson chalked it up to the liberal media’s commitment to sidetrack his campaign.

They don’t want people to take me seriously. And they’re very afraid of my message getting out there because if flies directly in the face of the secular-progressive movement. I’m a huge threat to them. And therefore, if they can find a chink in the armor and they can concentrate on that, they can get you off of the things that are so important to our nation.

Carson had even predicted the liberal media would misrepresent his comments about using drones.

You guys, some of you are going to go out and say, “Carson wants to use drones to kill people on the borders, how ridiculous!” At some point I hope we have some responsible media which actually focuses on the problem.

The former neurosurgeon’s point was to use drones for surveillance and to eliminate caves where illegal goods and immigrants are hidden. He would not use drones to kill people.

He argued that the use of military assets like drones and the National Guard was “common sense” due to the “huge security risk” at the border coupled with the shortage of staffing.

Do you agree with Dr. Carson? Is there a security risk at the border? Is the secular-progressive movement eroding Judeo-Christian values? Share and comment below.

LISTEN: Host Asks If It’s ‘Time To Do Something Else About Guns’; Trump Drops 10-Word Truth Bomb

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said the murder of two journalists on live television Wednesday in Roanoke, Va., illustrates a mental problem, not a gun problem.

Reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward of WDBJ were killed while filming an innocuous story on attracting tourism to the area, interviewing Vicki Gardner of the local Chamber of Commerce. Gardner was injured in the attack and had her condition upgraded to “good” Thursday, WDBJ reported.

The alleged killer, Vester Lee Flanagan, whose on-air name was Bryce Williams, was pursued by police before shooting himself, dying several hours later.

Speaking to Chris Cuomo on CNN’s New Day Thursday, Trump was asked if he would take action on gun control.

“Well I don’t think I would, because this is really a sick person. This isn’t a gun problem. This is a mental problem,” Trump said, referring to Flanagan.

Frankly, you know, a case like this, he snuck up on them — whether it was with a gun or a knife or whatever it would’ve been, it would’ve been something. You’re not going to get rid of all guns.

“It’s a very complex situation,” Trump added. “I’m a very strong Second Amendment person.”

Trump later took note of Chicago’s strict gun laws, and argued that even with tough legislation, the results might not bear themselves out as pro-gun control advocates hope.

And even if they did, what would you do? You’d say, ‘Oh, he said he’s going to blow up.’  Probably hear that all the time, but in this case, it happened. Too bad that we can’t figure it out beforehand, but it’s a very tough thing to do.

USA Today pointed out in April that murders in Chicago were up 40 percent, and shootings were up 29 percent from last year during the first three months of 2015.

Univison Reporter Shut Down By Trump Tries To Twist Story – Gets Shut Down Again

After being escorted from a press conference Tuesday for attempting to ask Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a question out of turn, pro-amnesty Univision host Jorge Ramos spoke to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo to explain his side of the story.

Univision host Jorge Ramos says Donald J. Trump’s event on Tuesday was “the first time in my life, anywhere in the world, in which I have been escorted out of a press conference.” Trump said that Ramos “was totally out of line last night” and was “ranting and raving like a madman.” http://cnn.it/1K1lEhcBut Ramos says it’s his “right” as a “U.S. citizen, as an immigrant, and as a journalist” to ask Trump about the candidate’s controversial immigration proposals. http://cnnmon.ie/1K1YSpw

Posted by CNN Politics on Wednesday, August 26, 2015

“I stood up, he didn’t say anything, so I kept asking my question,” he said.

Ramos concluded that Trump “didn’t like” his question, prompting him to call security.

“As a U.S. citizen,” Ramos asserted, “as an immigrant and as a reporter, I had the right to ask a question.”

He did acknowledge that the event was “Donald Trump’s press conference – he was in control.”

Cuomo was far from a sympathetic ear, insisting that Trump truly was in control and that Ramos “jumped the cue” since he was not called on to ask a question.

When Ramos insisted it was his turn to address the candidate, Cuomo noted that it is not good journalistic form to ask a question without being recognized.

“Usually when you’re not called on to ask a question,” he said, “the other reporters yell at you.”

Cuomo played a clip of Trump’s response, during which the brash billionaire confirmed that he “would’ve gotten to [Ramos] very quickly,” but the reporter instead began “ranting and raving” while another reporter attempted to ask a question.

The CNN anchor summarized Trump’s point, concluding: “It wasn’t a question, it was a comment. You wanted to get into a fight with him and you got your fight.”

Ramos was ultimately invited back into the conference room to ask his question.

WATCH: Ben Carson Pulls A Trump And Launches A Scathing Attack On CNN

The recent actions of a CNN reporter who droned on by taking remarks out of context illustrated the depth of the liberal media’s commitment to sidetrack his campaign, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Monday.

NewsMax TV host Steve Malzberg on Monday asked Carson about a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” during which guest host Jim Acosta focused extensively on comments Carson had made at the U.S.-Mexico border that there was a role for America’s vast drone technology in sealing the leaky border.

“Why are they badgering you?” Malzberg asked.

“Because they don’t want people to take me seriously. And they’re very afraid of my message getting out there because it flies directly in the face of the secular-progressive movement. I’m a huge threat to them. Therefore, if they can find a chink in the armor and they can concentrate on that, they can get you off of the things that are so important to our nation,” Carson replied.

In response to a question from Malzberg, who mentioned past CNN efforts he felt were designed to harass Carson, the candidate responded: “The liberal media in general, but certainly the people you just mentioned are problematic.”

Last week, at the border, Carson had predicted that after he spoke about incorporating drone technology into defending America’s borders, his comments would be misrepresented.

“I said that to the media at the time. I said you guys, some of the left wing media, are going to be saying that Carson wants to use drones to kill people on the border, and how ridiculous!” he said Monday. “They went out and did it.”

On Sunday, as Carson discussed the needs of local law enforcement in the border area, Acosta asked about drones. After explaining his concept of using drones to eliminate caves where illegal goods and immigrants are hidden, Carson finally replied with a touch of evident heat.

Read my lips and listen carefully to what I am saying. I said that there are caves. There are caves that they utilize, and those caves can be eliminated. There are a number of possibilities, and that could be one of them. I am not talking about killing people. No people with drones,” he said.

Carson said using military assets along the border is a matter of common sense to address the shortage of staffing along the border.

“The sheriffs down there are being outgunned. They do not have the full support of the federal government. … I’ve been talking to some of the sheriffs down there on the border… listen to the frustration. You should have them on your show and let them talk about what is actually going on down there,” Carson said. “We have a huge security risk there.”

Carson has long defined his campaign as a counter to what he called the secular-progressive movement. In a 2014 interview boosting cultural conservatism, he had this to say:

The secular progressive agenda, quite frankly, is at odds with the Judeo-Christian value system. If you just keep quiet about it, they win by default. I’m a person that believes in live and let live; but I don’t believe you should suppress what you believe so that you don’t create waves or cause a problem.
