#TrumpLiesMatter: President Denies Knowing Rapper Lil Jon During Hostile Press Conference [WATCH]

*Donald Trump didn’t realize it at the time but he wrote his own SNL skit during a hostile press conference on Wednesday, where he denied knowing rapper and Apprentice contestant Lil Jon and lashed out at CNN reporter Jim Acosta, calling him a “rude, terrible person” who “shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

When Acosta pressed Trump about possible indictments handed down by Robert Mueller, Trump yelled, “That’s enough! Put down the mic.”

CNN issued a statement to the White House afterward, calling Trump’s attack on Acosta “dangerous” and reminding 45 of his sworn obligation to protect the freedom of the press.

During another exchange with reporters, Trump pretended not to know who music producer and rapper Lil Jon was.

“I don’t know who Lil Jon is,” Trump told a reporter when asked to respond to Jon’s comments about Trump’s “racist” statements.

“The point of fact is I’ve never used a racist remark,” Trump said.

“Hmmmm. Can someone at the WH show #45 this picture of @LilJon. It might help jar his memory,” wrote former White House Aide Omarosa on Twitter.

She added: “#45 called @LilJon “Uncle Tom” instead of “Uncle Sam” repeatedly during this taping of the Apprentice even after being told that it was racially offensive. #Fact”

Lil Jon appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” during its 11th and 13th seasons.
