Once again, we marvel at the idea that journalists really believe they “are risking their own health to provide life-saving information to a nation sheltering in place,” as though they were on the front lines like first responders, nurses, and doctors. The journalists we see are grandstanding jerks like CNN’s Jim Acosta who frame every question of the president as an accusation or Yamiche Alcindor who wants to get to the bottom of which unnamed White House official referred to COVID-19 as the “kung flu.”
President Trump held another press conference Saturday afternoon with Vice President Mike Pence, Dr. Deborah Birx, and Dr. Anthony Fauci about the coronavirus, and was asked about a mean tweet sent by Joe Biden less than an hour before:
Donald Trump is not responsible for the coronavirus, but he is responsible for failing to prepare our nation to respond to it.
— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) April 4, 2020
Trump’s response was perfect; check this out:
Watch: President Trump is asked about Joe Biden attacking him in a tweet today: "He didn't write that. That was done by a Democrat operative. He doesn't write. He's probably not even watching right now and, if he is, he doesn't understand what he's watching." pic.twitter.com/FOqtrYyOdw

In a presser designed to inform the American people about the latest pandemic developments, some journo asks what Trump thinks about Biden “attacking” him. FFS.

And pretending the tweet just happened. These people are so deceptive.

She also acted like Biden “just tweeted” to get Trump angry.

His response to that question was classic Trump loved it! I don’t really care what Joe Biden thinks quite frankly ?

The media is garbage.

Lots of FFSs these days!

We all know by now that it's not their job to inform the public, that's just what they SAY their job is.

I was shocked when I heard that. Bush league.

@realDonaldTrump should just start saying “pass” and “ another asinine question like that and your credentials are being pulled”

I had to turn it off after the "journalist" stupidity started. It's cringe worthy crap I don't have the time or patience for right now.

Yes, but God I loved his response: "Joe didn't write that, some DNC operative wrote that. Joe probably isn't even watching this, but if he is he doesn't understand what he's watching."

Briefings are at least 30 minutes too long. Strict order of discussion points are needed and reporters should be limited in number of questions they can ask. A little coordination on reporters' part would be great but not possible.

Those same reporters complain about Trump using his pressers as a campaign commercials
— Drew (@Avsfan37) April 4, 2020
I personally wish @POTUS @realDonaldTrump would not even acknowledge any question from anyone, that is not directly related to COVID-19. Just remind them the purpose of this particular presser and move on. No need to waste time on the gotcha questions

Just saw that!!! Useless

If only pathetic excuses for journalists could create a contrived cat fight between the two. Yet somehow they’ve missed the fact no one has an interest in giving Biden free media attention where none really exists.
— John Ayres (@JohnAyr12294351) April 4, 2020
Wasting their one question on stupid questions is insane.
— Jennifer E (@AgelessJE) April 4, 2020
And the president hits a grand slam home run with his response.

Does anybody really believe Joe Biden writes his own tweets, or that Barack Obama wrote his own tweets? C’mon man!
