Wow, reporters are finding their backbones: ‘Do you regret … all the lying you’ve done?’

I don’t know the name of the reporter who delivered this uppercut. If anyone knows, please say so in the comments, and I’ll be sure to give credit where it’s due. (UPDATE: Looks like we have a winner! S.V. Date of HuffPost, come pick up your Def Leppard T-shirt and two tickets to the Alvin Styczynski concert.)

REPORTER: “Mr. President, after three and a half years, do you regret at all all the lying you’ve done to the American people?”

TRUMP: “All the what?”

REPORTER: “All the lying, all the dishonesty.”

TRUMP: “And who is that?”

REPORTER: “You have done. Tens of thousands …”

Naturally, he didn’t want to answer that, so he moved on to the next reporter. In the future, maybe the next reporter should defer to the previous questioner so Trump either has to answer or storm off. You know, like he did here.

By the way, Trump looks pretty low-energy here. I’ve seen salted garden slugs with more joie de vivre. Let us know when the Adderall embargo is over so we can get our rascally ol’ president back in fine fettle. It’s no fun to squash a worm that’s already been flattened.

I too, wish the next reporter deferred back to have the original question answered, it’s a welcome outcome regardless

Every reporter should ask the same question. He won’t answer and probably storm off. But it would make for great television.

Well some reporters. Not the weak ass reporter that followed. Maybe that reporter should be identified as well and asked to step up.

Too little, too late. They should have been calling out his lies before he became President.

So true. I understand the praise he’s getting but you’re so right, should’ve been asking that question a long time ago.

Would have loved to be sitting in the room when he asked that question.
