It’s about time!
During a recent coronavirus press briefing, CNN’s Jim Acosta again attempted to ask President Trump another backhanded question but this time President Trump wasn’t having it.
According to the Washington Examiner, “We hear from a lot of people who see these briefings as sort of ‘happy talk’ briefings,” Acosta said. “You and some of the officials paint a rosy picture of what is happening around the country. You look at some of these questions, ‘Do we have enough masks? No.’ ‘Do we have enough tests? No.’ ‘Do we have enough PPE? No.'”
Then before Acosta could say any more, Trump shot back, “This is not happy talk. Maybe it’s happy talk for you. It’s not happy talk for me. We’re talking about death. We’re talking about the greatest economy in the world, one day I have to close it off,” Trump said, striking a solemn tone during the Good Friday briefing. “Thousands of people have died. There’s nothing happy about it, Jim. This is sad talk. These are the saddest news conferences that I’ve ever had. I don’t like doing them. You know why? Because I’m talking about death.”
