CNN anchor Jake Tapper delivered an on-air message to President Donald Trump on Thursday: "Get to work and stop whining."
Tapper was responding to Trump's remarks at a White House press conference during which he criticized the media.
"He said things that weren't true," Tapper said. "He was called out by one reporter: 'You said you had the biggest electoral victory since Reagan, that's not true.' And he said, 'Well somebody gave me that information.'
"The buck stops there? Is that where we are with this presidency? You said it, own the words. You're wrong. It's not just about electoral votes. It's about the fact that he's still fixated on whether or not he legitimately won the presidency.
"President Trump, if you're watching, you're the president. You legitimately won the presidency. Now get to work and stop whining about it."
During his campaign and after he won the Nov. 8 election, Trump and his aides have continually criticized the media for what they see is an unfair bias against him.
Trump said Thursday, "The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people — tremendous disservice. We have to find out what's going on because the press honestly is out of control."
Last week, Tapper said Trump needs to start acting "more presidential."
