President Trump called a question from one of NBC ‘News’ favorite attack reporters, ‘nasty.’

David French, who calls himself a conservative, is a victim of Trump Derangement Syndrome. He thinks Peter Alexander’s question in this clip is a legitimate one.

What brought this on was the President daring to offer hope to the American people by making note of the success of some drugs used to cure coronavirus patients.

Watch and see what you think about the question and tone of this NBC ‘News’ reporter Peter Alexander:

The President took the question and tone as nasty. It is his right.

Ari Fleischer noted that the clip was deceptively edited. Twitter won’t care although their policy opposes such editing.

Context does matter.

Brit Hume expressed his views succinctly, “Legitimate question my a**.” He added “It was the kind of bullsh*t gotcha question which hack WH reporters have been asking for decades. But instead of going off on the reporter, Trump should have said the whole briefing in all its particulars was a message to people who are scared.”

That would have been a good response but note that Brit just went off. Look, the President shouldn’t have to take abuse.

Brit Hume brought up the context issue to Stephen Hayes, another TDS victim who is friends with Bill Kristol.

Alexander responded on Twitter saying he was giving the President an opportunity. Do you think that is what he was doing? Joe Concha responded to that.

Thiessen didn’t think much of Alexander’s claim:

OPINION

Are these reporters stupid or blinded by hate?

Nasty reporters are out of control. These are the very same reporters who ask gotcha questions every time, and it’s getting worse.

Most Americans feel the President is doing a good job of handling the virus crisis and that’s what is behind this latest onslaught by the press.

TDS victim, Peter Alexander, is a prime example of a reporter trying to catch the President making a mistake or cause him to make a mistake. The media should be giving us accurate data, looking at all sides, interviewing people they are criticizing before they publish, and taking their opinions out of their stories. They are not the story. Their political point of view is not the story. Reporters are supposed to be watchdogs, not activists.
