    1. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Thursday angrily admonished a reporter for asking him whether he would concede the election once the Electoral College formally votes to make Democrat Joe Biden the next president, calling the journalist a "lightweight."

    Trump evaded the question by arguing that the Electoral College would make "a mistake" by voting for Biden and leveled more baseless claims about voter fraud. As Trump continued to repeat unfounded claims, Jeff Mason of Reuters pressed him to answer whether he would concede.

    "Don't talk to me that way," Trump snapped. "You're just a lightweight. Don't talk to me that way."....

    "I'm the president of the United States. Don't ever talk to the president that way," Trump said as he continued to lash out at Mason before moving on to "another question."

    'Take it off': Trump requested a White House reporter remove his mask while asking a question. He didn't....

    "Certainly I will. Certainly I will. and you know that," Trump said, adding that it would be "very hard" to concede....

    2. Since assuming power in 2016, Trump has consistently attacked reporters, calling them "fake news" for asking critical questions not to his liking. In some cases, he has gone so far as to call them "terrible," "fake," and "nasty," and telling some that they're "never going to make it."

    If he keeps clashing with the media, he may meet with a "nasty" response from a truly "terrible" reporter in the future: "By calling me a lightweight, you imply that you are a heavyweight. As a lightweight, I shall float like a balloon above hell one fine day, but a so-called heavyweight like you will drop like a rock to its very bottom. I am sure King Louis XVI should have a better understanding of a true heavyweight on January 21, 1793 seconds before the axe of the guillotine fell on his neck."

    Do you see a pattern here? :)

    And of course he sees himself as a king, not an elected president.
