Another Presidential Moment, Trump Storms Out Of Presser ‘Don’t Ask Me Ask China’


A few short days ago the daily coronavirus press conferences ceased for a short time, because Donald Trump couldn’t stop attacking the press, even though he was informed that he was making himself look bad. When the briefings resumed, Trump went out of his way to be cordial to reporters for a few days, even telling Jim Acosta on one occasion that he “appreciated” a question. That all went up in flames today, as Trump once again reverted to type and lashed out at a reporter for asking a “nasty” question.

The question that was posed was, “Why is this a global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we’re still seeing more cases every day?”

“Well they’re losing their lives everywhere in the world. And maybe that’s a question you should ask China,” Trump replied. His emphasis on the word “China” was practically a snarl. Then of course he repeated it.

“Don’t ask me, ask China that question.”

The reporter in question was Weijia Jiang of CBS who describes herself as a “Chinese born West Virginian.”

Who knows why Trump lost it? Ask his shrink. Or maybe Ivanka can explain it. But to the rest of the world, Trump comes across like the crotchety elder that nobody wants to offend because he may revise his will and disinherit them, and so they all humor him. It will be nice when the functions of government can get back to being handled by adults, because this is nothing more than another black eye for this country. The office of president has been nothing but systematically disgraced since Trump assumed it and today was yet another low.

When November arrives WE will vote this psychopathic bastard OUT of his fake presidency.

He hates these press conferences because nothing good can come from it, but it’s the only way he can try & control the narrative. All part of his micro-managing disorder & unchecked ego. Soon he’ll be gone & one day the GOP will be forced to answer some very uncomfortable questions, like, why didn’t someone stop him ? Why did you let him kill so many US citizens ? Why didn’t you listen to Bob Corker or Mitt Romney & so many others ? Why were you all so complicit in ruining the economy to the point of a depression,… Read more »
