A few short days ago the daily coronavirus press conferences ceased for a short time, because Donald Trump couldn’t stop attacking the press, even though he was informed that he was making himself look bad. When the briefings resumed, Trump went out of his way to be cordial to reporters for a few days, even telling Jim Acosta on one occasion that he “appreciated” a question. That all went up in flames today, as Trump once again reverted to type and lashed out at a reporter for asking a “nasty” question.

The question that was posed was, “Why is this a global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we’re still seeing more cases every day?”

“Well they’re losing their lives everywhere in the world. And maybe that’s a question you should ask China,” Trump replied. His emphasis on the word “China” was practically a snarl. Then of course he repeated it.

“Don’t ask me, ask China that question.”

The reporter in question was Weijia Jiang of CBS who describes herself as a “Chinese born West Virginian.”

Who knows why Trump lost it? Ask his shrink. Or maybe Ivanka can explain it. But to the rest of the world, Trump comes across like the crotchety elder that nobody wants to offend because he may revise his will and disinherit them, and so they all humor him. It will be nice when the functions of government can get back to being handled by adults, because this is nothing more than another black eye for this country. The office of president has been nothing but systematically disgraced since Trump assumed it and today was yet another low.

Even when he’s nice, he’s nasty.

Maybe he’s getting nasty because don’t they have to do a transition of office or something pretty soon for the next election.

My my. He really has it tough, doesn’t he? Girls daring to ask him questions, just too much for him to handle.

As I’m already disinherited, pissing him off is the least of my worries. Moreover, running away like he’s been doing makes him the very thing he said he grabs.
