Trump’s press conference on Thursday was pure Trump. The liberal media, which just a day before was complaining that Trump passed them over for questions, is now feigning shock.

Chuck Todd is aghast. The Hill reports:

Chuck Todd: Trump’s treatment of the press is un-American

“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd on Thursday slammed President Trump’s efforts to “delegitimize” the media as “un-American.”

“This not a laughing matter. I’m sorry, delegitimizing the press is unAmerican,” Todd tweeted.

The tweet came during a White House news conference that saw Trump attack media reports about ties between campaign aides and the Kremlin, calling the revelations “false” and “fake.”

The news conference was defined by a series of confrontations between Trump and reporters from various media outlets, including CNN and the BBC. When a reporter asked Trump about anti-Semitic sentiment in the country, Trump told the reporter to sit down.

The president frequently lashed out against questions about his relationship with Russia, and the recent resignation of embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn, who stepped down from the post amid revelations that he discussed U.S. sanctions with Russia’s ambassador.

Here’s Todd’s tweet:

Isn’t it interesting how the media is allowed to bash Trump and members of his team on a daily basis but when he pushes back at them it’s a crisis?

Todd got some great responses:
