Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Having been pestered by CBS reporter John Dickerson over what great advice President Obama had given him (and his wiretapping accusations); President Trump’s frustration briefly boiled over as he turned his back and remarked “ok, that’s enough, thank you, goodbye,” gesturing for the reporter to leave The Oval Office…

"That's Enough" - Angry Trump Kicks CBS Reporter Out Of Oval Office

As Washington Free Beacon reports, the exchange, which aired Monday, began when Dickerson asked Trump if his predecessor had given him any advice since taking office. Trump said Obama had been “very nice” initially but since then there had been “difficulties.”

“Words are less important to me than deeds, and you saw what happened with surveillance,” he said, calling it “inappropriate.”

Trump was referring to a claim he made on March 4 that Obama tapped his phones during the presidential campaign. There is no evidence to substantiate the claim, but Trump has never retracted it.

When Dickerson pressed for details about the surveillance, Trump responded, “You can figure that out yourself.”

The reason he asked, Dickerson said, was that Trump called Obama “sick” and “bad” in the March 4 tweet-storm that kicked off the saga.

“Look, you can figure it out yourself. He was very nice to me with words, and when I was with him, but after that there has been no relationship,” Trump said.

Dickerson repeated his questioning about the wiretapping claim against Obama, but Trump simply said Dickerson could “take it any way you want.”

“But I’m asking you because you don’t want it to be fake news,” Dickerson said. “I want to hear it from President Trump.”

“You don’t have to ask me,” Trump said.

“Why not?” Dickerson asked.

“Because I have my own opinions,” Trump said. “You can have your own opinions.”

“But I want to hear your opinions. You’re the president of the United States,” Dickerson said.

Trump finally waved his hand at Dickerson, saying, “OK, that’s enough. Thank you. Thank you very much.”

    It looked like he was invading his private space, maybe it was the angle.

    In any case, I wish someone would ask him some real questions about his rushed decision to bomb Syria but that would be pointless. The MSM needs to start questioning the Generals instead of accepting every word out of their mouths like it is the Gospel of Luke. They are the real power behind the throne.

    Petty insignificant petulant questions by an unprofessional pseudo fake “journalist”..A true journalist would have asked Trump relevant questions about Syria or N Korea instead of trying to get into an argument about non relevant hearsay. This is why no one takes the mainstream media serious anymore. They are still stinging from their candidates loss last election.

    Whatever your opinion of Trump, political or personal, in west, the political media’s status quo is that the press gallery presume themselves as kingmakers in the game. When they are the losers in their own game, as happened with Trump’s victory over the widely MSM endorsed candidate, their collective egos are deeply bruised, displayed in partisan bitterness, and that is where the western political media are currently operating from – apparently without a lot of personal insight.
