Donald Trump has repeatedly insisted he is not thin skinned, yet he's repeatedly lashed out at media figures who even dare to question his bluster and he's back at it again this morning.

Trump seemed excited enough when promoting his interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Twitter this morning:


But when Cuomo opened an interview with Trump on Tuesday's edition of "New Day" by mentioning the response from Marco Rubio's campaign to Trump's latest campaign gag (Trump trolled Rubio by sending him a case of Trump water yesterday, signing the attached note, "Since you're always sweating, we thought you could use some water. Enjoy!") Trump responded irritably, complaining that Cuomo had failed to mention poll numbers showing him still leading the Republican presidential field.

"But Chris you didn't ask me any questions," Trump complained over the phone (yes, networks are still allowing Trump to phone it in).

"Every single poll had me winning that debate," Trump insisted, referring to the second GOP debate at the Reagan Library, before complaining that he was not allowed enough time to speak on stage.


When the interview ended, Trump took to his treasured ritual of retweeting praise for his performance and attacks on the interviewer:
