During the coronavirus press conference today, Peter Alexander launched an attack at President Donald Trump masked as a question accusing the president of giving a false sense of hope to Americans.
Trump goes SAVAGE mode on Fear Mongering Reporter: “You’re a terrible reporter.” 🔥

Peter Alexander asked: “What do you say to millions of people who are scared?”
President Trump called him out: “I say that you are a terrible reporter…. It’s a nasty question.”
Then CNN’s Kaitlin Collins had a little meltdown in Alexander’s defense: “Do you really think going off on Peter, going off on a network is appropriate when the country’s going through something like this?”
Trump responded: “I do.”
President Donald Trump snapped at NBC reporter Peter Alexander for asking a series of questions implying Trump was making the American people more afraid amid the coronavirus.
Alexander’s question came up during discussion of a drug used to combat the Ebola virus under the Obama administration that some say may be useful against the coronavirus. When Trump said the administration was looking into the drug because “what they hell do we have to lose,” Alexander suggested Trump’s tendency to paint news in a positive light was misleading Americans, and asked what Trump had to say to Americans who were scared.

The MSM is behaving like jackals at these conferences. They are revealing their true nature to the American public, and it ain’t pretty. Do these briefings without reporters!

He’s right although I think Trump may have been a bit generous in giving that self indulgent hack the title of journalist.

This douche reporter absolutely deserved that kind response. His ridiculous question, his ugly tone and demeanor was unnecessary, I immediately thought he was unprofessional but what else’s new.
