Donald Trump held his first press conference as the United States' president-elect on Wednesday morning, where he addressed a wide range of topics including his business ties, Obamacare, and an explosive (yet unconfirmed) dossier that claims Russia has information that it can use as blackmail against him. 

The event was also Trump's first press conference in about six months. Worth the wait? If you're sadistic, maybe. Here's what you missed if you didn't watch it live:

Trump got into an intense shouting match with a CNN reporter who asked about his team's ties to Russia.

After Trump called BuzzFeed a "failing piece of garbage" for publishing the scathing (and unverified) dossier, CNN reporter Jim Acosta tried to ask the president-elect about whether any members of the Trump team had contacted Russia.

Trump refused to answer Acosta's question and replied, "You are fake news," before launching into an aggressive back-and-forth with the reporter.

CNN, which decided not to publish the dossier because it couldn't verify any of its allegations, later released a statement saying Trump was trying to lump its organization in with BuzzFeed "to deflect from CNN's reporting."
