    We live in the United States of America. The job of the media isn’t to bow down to the POTUS. It is to find the truth, and inform the public. I agree that some of the questions are meant to stir the pot, but most of them are legit.

    That was hilarious. I was watching with my wife. She, like so many of the soccer moms in my area adore Trump. Me, I always look a trump through skeptical eyes...but when he looked at a reporter and said “ok let’s give this a try”. I wondered if it was Jim Acosta, and of course it was.

    Little known fact.
    The publisher of the National Enquirer. Is a guy named David Pecker.
    A friend of Trumps.

    That’s not a little known fact, Ric. We know. Maybe Trump should give the Enquirer press credentials to sit down right next to Jim Acosta at all briefings.

    You had me right up until you said ‘find the truth, and inform the public’. Then unfortunately I knew you were living in fantasy land.

    You know there are many times I think trump handles jackasses like Acosta poorly. But I’m this cars the exchange made Acosta and CNN look smaller than they normally do.

    This was a great response


    "What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis?" Acosta asked. He referenced earlier quotes from the president, including when Trump said roughly a month ago, "It's going to disappear. One day, it's like a miracle, it will disappear."

    Acosta added, "What do you say to Americans who believe that you got this wrong?"


    Well, it will go away and I do want them to stay calm, and we are doing a great job," Trump responded. "If you look at those individual statements, they're all true. Stay calm, it will go away -- you know that it is going away, and... we're going to have a great victory. And, it's people like you and CNN that say things like that -- it's why people just don't want to listen to CNN anymore. You could ask a normal question."

    The president then defended his rhetoric, "The statements I've made are -- I want to keep the country calm. I don't want panic in the country. I can cause panic much better than even you. I would make you look like a minor-league player, but you know what? I don't want to do that. I want to have our country be calm and strong and fight and win, and it will go away."

    It's so easy to take those CNN losers down. They're all lightweights and have zero credibility. And they're all pussies with no guts to say the truth.

    Questions like Acosta asked today do nothing to advance the story that is foremost on the mind of the public. There may be an appropriate time to ask those kinds of questions after the crisis has passed, but not in the middle of the crisis.

    All anyone has to do is ask themselves why they think the question was asked. It served no purpose for the setting...other than for Acosta to advance his agenda.

    Acosta was stirring the pot, but the other journalist’s questions were legit. Trump went on some rant in regards to Seoul having 38 million people when a journalist asked him a question. No rhyme or reason to it.

    I’m surprised Trump even gives Acosta and that other stupid broad, Alcindor from PBS, a chance to ask questions.

    I didn't see the presser today. I only saw the Acosta transcript from a post. I did hear something about a question re "per capita". Is that the one to which you refer? If so, it seems to me that its a gotcha question. Trump keeps referring to the USA performing the most tests, which is literally true. The media seem to want to make him admit he's wrong by converting it to per capita.

    Anyone trying to give their question to someone already "dismissed" should be dismissed as well.

    Anyone with a reputation for asking questions that require no answer that provides information, should just not be called upon.

    There are plenty of questions whose answers would enlighten. Ask real questions or stay home.

    I don't think it leans very left though. Look at how they routinely steamrolled Sanders. I think it's a network largely interested in whatever benefits it's business, same as every other news network. They are all about as relevant to news as ESPN tends to be for sports. There is news in there but it's wrapped in so much garbage that it's hard for me to watch.

    It leans establishment Democrat. Your Bernie example highly supports this deduction.

    That's fair. I also think everyone realizes this in the same way Fox leans establishment right. It is what it is, unfortunately.

    I thought his answer to this was fine, good even. And CNN should quit with this.

    his answer to the female reporter later about Seoul wasn’t good. To say “no one knows Seoul more than me” and then confuse it’s population with its elevation is an all time boner. Any reasonable person would
    Have had one of the 1,000 experts give you facts instead of that.

    And the my pillow guy?! Good grief.

    CNN is a purely left leaning network that ONLY states opinions, no facts or news that can be trusted. That's who they are now. If you don't see that, there's nothing that can help you.

    THIS!! See, if he responds to these questions this way, two things will happen:

    1) They will make the networks who ask them look bad rather than make Trump seem petulant like he has. This is exactly how he needs to respond.

    2) They will eventually stop asking them.

    When these CNN jackasses ask these stupid questions, Trump talks too much. He needs to say what he wants to say very succinctly and with few words while making sure he conveys the message that the question was stupid and without real merit. Then continue on with saying the types of things he said about staying calm, we're all in this together and will defeat it, and don't panic. Just shut them up by putting them down. It doesn't take many words to put down a CNN reporter. They're very shallow and cowardly.
