President Trump lashed out at a CBS News female reporter while taking questions on the White House lawn on Friday morning, calling her “obnoxious.”
“Quiet,” Trump shouted to CBS correspondent Weijia Jaing while several reporters attempted to ask questions.
“She’s so obnoxious,” Trump said before saying again to Jiang, “Quiet.”

Jiang said she was trying to ask Trump “why he declared the nuclear threat from North Korea was already ‘over.'”
