On Thursday, a tweet posted by radical-left CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins went viral after she posted a selfie with her and other reporters, bragging about getting President Trump to answer their questions.
“Collins and the handful of assembled reporters were mocked online for gathering closely together during the shot amid the pandemic, and for celebrating getting Trump to answer questions while many members of the press ignored Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his pick for vice president, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), largely avoiding taking questions from reporters during the campaign,” the Daily Wire reported.
“The crew that got President Trump to answer his first questions in over three weeks. Proud to be part of it,” Collins tweeted. “Happy Thanksgiving!”
The post was ironic to say the least considering this is the same group of people who have supported extreme lockdown measures to “limit” the spread of the coronavirus this Thanksgiving.
“If this was a thanksgiving dinner it’d be a crime in some states,” reporter with The Washington Examiner Joe Simonson tweeted.
“Where is the photo of the crew that can get Joe Biden to answer one?” trolled Stephen Miller said.
“From an optics perspective in terms of an argument around objectivity, this wasn’t a good idea,” said Joe Concha from The Hill.
“This is not Kaitlan’s fault or any of the WH Press Corp (because they cover the WH) but I do hope we see this same enthusiasm in getting real Q’s to Biden,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee Senior Adviser Matt Whitlock. “Biden went weeks at a time without taking questions (in peak campaign season) and Kamala Harris went literally months.”
President Trump did indeed take questions from the reporters and it was explosive to say the least. At one point, the President unleashed on a liberal reporter who continuously interrupted him and attempted to belittle him.
The blow up happened after the rude reporter asked the President if he would leave the White House if he loses the election.
“The whole election was a fraud,” President Trump fired back. “They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama in places that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way… You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.”
