    President Donald Trump abruptly exits today's coronavirus task force briefing when he's challenged by a female reporter on testing.
    President Donald Trump stormed out of a coronavirus press conference at the White House on Monday after becoming angry with two reporters, one who asked a question about testing, and another who didn’t get to ask a question at all.
    The event in the Rose Garden was meant to give the president a chance to boast about the recent increases in testing, and Trump spoke and answered questions for nearly an hour.
    The briefing got off to a bumpy start when the president misstated the dollar amount that would be allocated to states to help with testing. “We are sending $1 billion to American states, territories and tribes,” Trump announced, in what officials had told reporters would be a high-point of the event.
    But those same officials said the amount would be $11 billion, not $1 billion. Moreover, the $11 billion was appropriated in the CARES Act passed by Congress and signed into law in April, calling into question why it was being held up almost three weeks later as a major success point.
    A White House spokesman later confirmed to CNBC that the amount is in fact, $11 billion.
    For the remainder of his remarks, the president ran through the numbers of personal protective equipment, ventilators and other essential gear that the U.S. has produced and distributed to fight the virus.
    But it was in the question and answer session that tempers erupted.
    At around 5:15 p.m., CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang asked Trump, “You have said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing,” to which Trump said, “Yes.”
    Jiang, who is Chinese American, continued, “Why does that matter? Why is it global competition to you, if every day Americans are still losing their lives, and we are still seeing more cases every day?”
    “They’re losing their lives everywhere in the world,” Trump replied, “And maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me. Ask China that question, okay? If you ask them that question, you may get a very unusual answer.”
    As Trump proceeded to call on another reporter, Jiang followed up. “Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?”
    “I’m not saying it specifically to anybody,” Trump responded, growing visibly irate. “I’m saying that to anyone who would ask a nasty question like that.”
    “That’s not a nasty question,” Jiang insisted, but Trump had already moved on.
    “Anyone else?” Trump said to the assembled reporters, before calling on CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, who was standing in line behind Jiang. “OK, yes, please go ahead, in the back,” he said.
    Collins approached the microphone, “I have two questions,” she said.
    “No, it’s ok,” Trump said, dismissing Collins, “we’ll go up here.”
    “But you pointed to me, Mr. President, and I have two questions.”
    “Next, next please,” Trump said, as he looked past Collins.
    “But you called on me,” Collins protested.
    “I did. And you didn’t respond, and now I’m calling on the other young lady in the back,” Trump said.
    “But I just wanted to let my colleague finish,” Collins said, but Trump cut her off.
    “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. appreciate it, thank you very much,” Trump said, and he turned and walked away.
    The exchange was the latest in a series of bitter back-and-forths Trump has had with reporters since he started giving near daily press briefings on the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March.
    On Tuesday morning, Trump claimed, without evidence, that “Chinese Americans are the most angry of all” about how the United States had been treated by China
    In reality, however, making China into a scapegoat for the coronavirus outbreak has led to a spike in discrimination against Asian-Americans, ranging from harassment to hate crimes. In April, the Justice Department took note, and began working with Asian American groups to track and prosecute hate crimes against Asian Americans.

This manchild is an utter embarrassment to the entire human race. He's the most ridiculous excuse for a 'man' i've ever witnessed. He's the very definition of wilful ignorance and stupidity made worse by the fact that he seems to be very proud of just how purposely stupid he is. Education, learning and factual science are his enemies. There's only been two official 'World Wars' in the history of the modern World yet this moron doesn't even know which one is which. He claimed during a recent press conference that WW2 ended in 1918 because the soldiers were all sick with the Spanish Flu!!! Add to that his repeated insulting of the men who fought for and died defending the country he pretends to lead and, if we didn't know these to be facts we wouldn't believe this was a true story ! If this type of behaviour wasn't bad enough in itself you have to also take into account that these shameful insults are coming from a slimey creep who has proudly dodged every draft that has come his way. This guy is so cowardly, so utterly yellow that he could easily be mistaken for a large, rotten banana. Every American who voted for him should be ashamed or at the very least extremely embarrassed by their actions. He's turned America into the laughing stock of the World. Donald J Trump (apparently the 'J' stands for 'Joke' or 'Jerk', take your pick as both are true and highly appropriate), admirer of despots and dictators everywhere! Close 'friend' and pathetic lackey of pondscum like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-Un, Rodrigo Duterte and the ridiculous Brazilian President , Jair Bolsonaro to name a few! Like his former employees who, in numerous cases went on to become convicts, Trump likes to brag that he only hires, and befriends the very best people. What an utter joke of a 'man'!!!

I have come to the conclusion that those that still follow Donald Trump are damaged, they have messed up their lives and hate what they have become and now want to burn the entire house down. Supporting Trump is just another bad decision in their pathetic lives.
