Trump Didn't Like How An Interview Was Going, So He Insulted The Show He Was On

Trump hurled some insults during his appearance on "Face the Nation" Saturday.

While chatting with CBS News' chief Washington correspondent and host of "Face the Nation," John Dickerson, about his accomplishments in his first 100 days as President, Trump seemed caught off guard by Dickerson's line of questioning.

Dickerson had asked about a quote from another interview in which Trump had admitted that he thought being President would be easier, which prompted this exchange:

Trump: "It’s always a challenge like life itself is a challenge. It’s very funny when the fake media goes out — which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes, I must say is you."

Taken aback, Dickerson countered:

Dickerson: "You mean, me personally?"

Trump: "Your show, I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation’, but your show is sometimes not exactly correct."

The interview continued with Dickerson asking Trump about everything from North Korea to healthcare, but it was an awkward moment that, by now, seems almost expected.

Here's a clip of the entire exchange:
