After repeatedly interrupting President Trump on several occasions, CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins was served a slice of humble pie.
As President Trump was calling out Biden for storing classified documents in “China Town”, CNN Anchor Kaitlan Collins kept interrupting President Trump as he was speaking.
Finally Trump had enough of her being rude to him and he stated ““Can I talk? Can I answer the question.”
Collins responded by saying “I want you to answer the question, that’s why I asked it.”
Trump fired back “You’re a nasty person.”

Here’s what The Hill reported:
President Trump snapped at CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins during a contentious town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday night, calling her a “nasty person.”
As Collins repeatedly asked Trump about his handling of classified documents, Trump paused and asked the network’s star anchor: “Can I talk? Can I answer the question.”
“I want you to answer the question, that’s why I asked it,” Collins said.
“You’re a nasty person,” Trump responded.
During Wednesday’s town hall event Trump largely talked over Collins and refused to concede that he lost the 2020 election. Earlier in the town hall, he praised her as someone “I know very well” before saying “you’re not stupid” but suggesting “maybe you’ve been given an agenda.”

Fox News got the scoop too:
Former President Trump took a personal swipe at CNN host Kaitlan Collins during Wednesday’s town hall, referring to her as a “nasty person.”
About an hour into the New Hampshire event, Collins grilled Trump over his handling of classified documents, which he defended by saying he had “the right” to declassify any records.
When Collins challenged him on why he held onto the documents despite a subpoena and requests from the National Archives, Trump lashed out.
“Are you ready? Can I talk?” Trump asked.
“What’s the answer?” Collins shot back. “I would like you to answer the question.”
“It’s very simple to answer,” Trump responded.
“That’s why I asked it,” Collins told him.
“It’s very simple – you’re a nasty person, I’ll tell ya,” Trump said, which sparked cheers from his supporters in the audience.
