President Donald Trump used his reality TV catchphrase to insult reporters during a Thanksgiving Day event.

The president spoke to military service members via teleconference, and complained their conversation were public because he was “surrounded by reporters and press,” reported Business Insider.

He asked them to leave by falling back on his old catchphrase from NBC’s reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I will say: ‘You’re fired,'” Trump said, “nd, by the way, media: Happy Thanksgiving.”

Trump bashed his predecessor, President Barack Obama, during the call and patted himself on the back during the traditional holiday call to troops serving overseas.

“We’re being talked about again as an armed forces,” Trump said. “We’re really winning. We know how to win—They weren’t letting you win before, they were letting you play even, we’re letting you win.”

A retired U.S. Army general argued service members would not appreciate boasts by the president, who is spending his 100th day at a Trump-owned property during the first 307 days of his presidency.

He started Thanksgiving Day by prolonging his feud with the father of a black college basketball player.
