    Just like that ****ing idiot yesterday that asked Trump why he hasn't closed down the grocery stores. That brainless mother****er has no business being a reporter.
    Asking questions that don't start with 'I think you're just peachy' is acting like assholes? Trump can't handle ANYTHING he perceives as criticism, even if it isn't. Tricky questions that he has no answer for get handled the same way; insult, demean, condescend.
    Problem for Trump is that he comes across as the asshole. He's too stupid to understand that he invites criticism by acting like a dick 24/7. If he thinks the press are going to play nice after he repeatedly insults those far more intelligent and qualified than he could ever imagine, he's deluding himself. Trump caused resentment among the media all by himself. He has only himself to blame.

    It would be really funny if all the reporters would NOT ask Trump any questions....ask everyone else a questions and crickets for him. Keep doing that and he'll lose his ****.

    They won't dare. They need him to speak so they'll have stuff to spin.

    Re: Trump is Always An Insulting Attacking Control Freak with Coronavirus Reporter's Questions

    The function of a good reporter [Ed.: As with all professions, there are those who are good and those who are not good,] is to go beyond simply parroting what is said. That means asking questions which require more than a simple reiteration by the questionee. This sent me to some of my reference works. I'm happy to share.

    "When asked an uncomfortable question, think of a different one: a question with an answer that will put you in a good light. Answer that question instead. Repeat as required. Your questioner has better things to do and will give up before you do." A Beginner's Guide to Government. Aloysius Goldpen. Chelm Press, 2011, Gotham, GA.

    And, of course, when discussing the positions of politicians, as President of the United States of America Donald Trump with regard to government's role in the COVID-19 zoonotic virus response;

    "Position, n. An ideological point on the political map. To take a position is to plant both feet firmly on an undefined location. The basic map coordinates are ego and the political zeitgeist.

    "A politician, one fine day
    Said, with a lofty air:
    'I'm standing on my principles.
    I'm sure you'll find them fair.'

    "And then he turned and walked away.
    I checked the floor with care;
    Examined where he just had stood,
    But there was nothing there."

    A Modern Dictionary, Fragmentary Press, 2016, Chelm, IA

    Regards to all, and stay well.
    "And gladly wolde he lerne and gladly teche." Chaucer, the Canterbury Tales.

    Wait till they are handled in the news cycle instead.

    Tuning in live, even if you are not watching or you have it MUTED sends data to the media that the pressers are getting big ratings.
    That means we will be subjected to them every single day from now on.

    They are his "virtual rallies" so by leaving your cable and sat tuned in, you are ATTENDING his rallies.
    In other words, dont watch and draw your own conclusions. Wait to be spoon fed by your liberal masters.

    He was right to blast the reporter on the PPA. He question was basically, the PPA has been up and running for two days, why isnt it working perfectly yet? They ask stupid question and he really should replace them with other media outlets. He wont because he loves to tangle with them. Its his favorite pass time.

    A huge number of your peers do not agree with you....do you understand this?

    Do you likewise understand that you are not better than them and that what you think does not matter more than what they think....that you are not powered by some God....and so therefore to the extent that you demand that you must get your way over them makes you a dick?
