He better be ready for what comes next.
According to Breitbart News, CNN anchor John King attacked President Donald Trump for his recent remarks against NBC reporter Peter Alexander.
King played a clip of Alexander asking Trump, “What do you say to Americans who are scared, 14,000 who are sick, and what do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?”
Trump answered, “I would say you are a terrible reporter. I think it is a nasty question. I think it is a very bad signal that you are putting out to American people. The American people are looking for answers and hope. You are doing sensationalism and the same with NBC and Comcast. I don’t call them Comcast. I call it Con-cast. That’s really bad reporting. You want to get back to reporting. Let’s see if it works. It may not. I happen to feel good about it, but who knows. I have been right a lot. Let’s see what happens.”
King said, “I sat in that room for just shy of 10 years, it was a perfectly valid question,” adding “What the president did to Peter Alexander is reprehensible. The American people are looking for answers. They do want hope. They do want support, Mr. President. That was a very fair question.”
He continued, “This is a Trump trademark, it was striking that this came, this, forgive me, bulls**t attack on fake news came just moments after the Secretary of State said the American people needed to be careful about where they get their information, and go to sources they can trust. I get there, at times, disagreements. There are times contention between politicians and reporters. That was a 100% legitimate question with no hype, no shade, no bias. He just wanted to attack.” You can read the full article here.
