During his maniacal, deranged, embarrassing press conference today, Donald Trump insisted that certain Governors weren’t kissing his butt sufficiently, and that he therefore didn’t want to help them with the coronavirus crisis. This was essentially a confession to mass murder.
While it was going on, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted this:
“I want them to be appreciative,” the president says of governors who are criticizing the federal response.
Then one of Trump’s sycophants began attacking Haberman, because Trump’s full quote was this: “I want them to be appreciative. We’ve done a great job. And I’m not talking about me. I’m talking about Mike Pence, the task force, I’m talking about FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers.”
As if that made any difference in what Donald Trump was saying. But sure enough, Trump just decided to launch a vicious attack on Haberman:
She is a third rate reporter who has nothing going. A Fake News “journalist”.
It’s telling that the majority of Donald Trump’s most vicious personal attacks on journalists seem to be aimed at women. In addition to everything else that’s so objectionable about this guy, Trump is as much of a sexist pig as ever.
