President Trump on Friday while speaking to the press prior to leaving to Paris with the first lady, fired off on a reporter who asked him about the acting AG and his influence on the Mueller investigation.
President Trump on Friday criticized a question from CNN reporter Abby Phillip as "stupid" while speaking with reporters on the White House lawn on Friday.
In a gaggle with reporters, Trump was asked by Phillip if he was hoping that Matthew Whitaker, the acting attorney general appointed on Wednesday and a past critic of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation, would "rein in" the Russia probe.
"Do you want [Whitaker] to rein in Robert Mueller?" Phillip asked.
"What a stupid question that is," Trump responded. "What a stupid question."
"But I watch you a lot," the president continued. "You ask a lot of stupid questions."
Declining to answer, Trump then walked away from the gaggle as Phillip and other reporters shouted questions in response.
