'The Guy's A Bridge Troll!': CNN Panelist Shreds Trump Over Claim Media Makes Him Look 'Uncivil'

CNN pundit Phil Mudd ripped into Trump for blaming media for perceptions that he's a mean, nasty person.

Earlier today Donald Trump had one of his White House lawn "shout at the press" impromptu question and answer periods. As part of that, he whined about how the media makes him look so much meaner than he actually is.

"Well, I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am," Trump mewled. People don't understand, I went to an Ivy League college, and I was a nice student and I did very well. I'm a very intelligent person. you know, the fact is I think -- I really believe, I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person."

Trump, doing his impression of Stuart Smalley, reassuring himself and everyone within earshot that he's a good, smart person. He loves himself, and doggone it, so should YOU.

Wolf asked panelist Phil Mudd for his reaction, and it was epic.

"Does this guy not think we speak English?." he snapped.

Warming up the rant, he continued, "If you look at the unfiltered language of this man, it's attacking federal institutions, to attacking the FBI to attacking a war widow to attacking women and a Hispanic judge to equating people who want black rights to those of neoNazis!"

"We got this thing called your personal Google machine," he said. (LOL, the "personal Google machine? Maybe just we have Google available to us, with or without the personal machine...)

"Google what the guy says. Don't have to take what we say literally," Mudd challenged. "The guy's got the personality of a rattlesnake, he's got the ethics of a sewer rat, and he's telling us who speak native English that it's the press filtering it?"

After once again pointing out that it's what Trump says and not what the press says, Mudd tossed his hands up.

"Google what he says. He's a bridge troll! We all know what he is," he concluded.

Tell us, Phil. Tell us how you really feel. I'm betting most of us would agree with you.
