While covering Donald Trump boarding Air Force One on Friday morning, John Berman -- the co-anchor of CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow -- referred to the Republican president's news conference the day before, which he said “received mixed reviews, to say the least.” Berman also stated that Trump was going to visit the Boeing plant in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was “going to talk about jobs, hopefully not going to criticize the media” since “that isn’t what people want to hear.”

Don't touch me and then launch into your 'sinister motivations' diatribe. That's not going to happen tonight, ma'am." Toward the end of the heated exchange, after McEnany lamented, "You said I'm not even allowed to touch you," Blow exclaimed, "No, you're not!" over and over again for a total of eight times.

In a condescending explanation, he offered, “I think he's mad at not being the boss anymore. Any president who comes in and he has to answer to the public. He has to answer to the Congress. He has to answer to the courts and the only thing Donald Trump done in his life is run a private family company.”
