Another day, another Donald Trump COVID19 press briefing to give CNN an opportunity to throw a tantrum.
Today’s did not disappoint:
Who the hell is asking this god damn question?

You know who it’s gotta be, Smug, don’t you?
Acosta being Acosta

Jim Acosta. Naturally.
Video: HERE IT IS — Fake News Jim @Acosta gets NUKED by the President for "asking a snarky question" that does nothing to help save lives and move the country forward through this #coronaviruspandemic pic.twitter.com/Qpm0BKub2S

Trump was right to smack Acosta for that.
Stop mocking Jim Acosta, he's a journalist risking his life on the front lines.

In all seriousness, Acosta deserved to get dragged for asking such an unserious question. And what Trump started, Twitter can help finish:

“Do you think your question was helpful in halting the spread of the coronavirus?"
I think @Acosta just failed the WH Press Corps' own test.

Jim Acosta: an activist disguised as a journalist

There goes Jim Acosta, being an asshat again.

How many people approve of the kind of spiteful, accusatory questions asked by @Acosta? What is the point of trashing Trump when we are trying to save lives here? Does @acosta not see he stands as his own accuser? That he disgraces himself? That he is WAY out of line?

Parting food for thought:
I would honestly like to see a poll of all Americans and specifically members of the media regarding who they think came off better in this exchange.
I would bet quite a bit that the results would show a significant divergence. https://t.co/Rv2SgIcwrq

We’ll take that bet.
