While Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were avoiding the media on Thursday, President Trump was answering their questions. Well, not ALL of their questions. One activist disguised as a HuffPost “journalist” decided to go for retweets instead with this bit of showboating weakly disguised as journalism — though obviously the MSM is eating it up:
Reporter asks President Trump, "After three-and-a-half years, do you regret at all — all the lying you have done to the American people?"
— CBS News (@CBSNews) August 13, 2020
Trump skipped it entirely, which the “reporter” probably found disappointing:
HuffPo Reporter @SVDate "Mr. President, after three and a half years, do you regret at all, all the lying you've done to the American people?"
TRUMP: "Who is that?"

Jim Acosta must be kicking himself for not having taken that approach:
He has a chance to ask the most powerful man in the world a legit question that could inform citizens and he decides to be a moron instead. ?

Pathetic attention seeking designed to win applause from resistance loons & other journos.

Imagining if some right-leaning reporter had asked the same question to Obama.
1) I would think it was an equally stupid and pointless because it achieves nothing & is just meant for theatrics.
2) Other reporters would vocally recognize #1 & condemn it. https://t.co/GnjDkE5EQz

“Reporters” during Obama’s presidency were more likely to ask about what’s enchanted him the most.

Conservative media needs to start throwing these kinds of shitballs at Biden and Harris. https://t.co/FdWt75HlIW

Maybe that’s why Biden and Harris won’t take any questions.
