Skip to comments.Trump at Coronavirus Briefing Attacks Schiff, Cuomo, Biden, Whistleblower: ‘Someone Oughta Sue His Ass Off’ (someone's opinion)
Posted on 04/04/2020 3:45:34 PM PDT by Libloather
President Donald Trump fired off a laundry list of grievances at his daily White House press conference with the coronavirus task force Saturday, bashing Rep. Adam Schiff, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the Ukraine whistleblower.
The wild diatribe was kicked off by a reporter asking Trump about his firing of Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who told Congress about the whistleblower complaint regarding Trumps phone call with Ukraine, ultimately leading to his impeachment.
I thought he did a terrible job, Trump said. Absolutely terrible.
Trump proceeded to falsely claim the Ukraine whistleblower report was fake and made up. He eventually got around to suggesting that Schiff was the informer for the whistleblower, calling the California Democrat a corrupt politician.
That man is a disgrace to IGs, Trump added of Atkinson. When he was asked another question about the IG, Trump again called the whistleblower fake, adding, Somebody oughta sue his ass off.

Some dillweed asked the President about Eric Ciaramella. Really? Total jackass.
It was fake and made-up. That's why they didn't use it in the hearings, nor did they call the so-called "whistle-blower". And that's why everyone associated with it should be fired and prosecuted.
Wow, sounds like a good briefing!
Damn I missed it!
You actually read that worthless drivel at Mediaite, a rabid leftist site?
Every one here(FR) needs to attend these daily before making comments
May, could, possibly,ect (msm lingo) eliminate much of the BS posts that have been flying about
He chatted about Gropin’ Joe when asked about a tweet no one had seen or produced. “Biden didn’t write that.” Amazing stuff.
“Trump proceeded to falsely claim the Ukraine whistleblower report was fake and made up. “
Well, it was. Read the transcript Mediaite.
Its a Festivus miracle!
“Wild diatribe”. huh?
No bias here.
Trump proceeded to falsely claim the Ukraine whistleblower report was fake and made up.
Nothing false about that.
The :whistle blower” was fake, and everything he claimed was fake. You can't even be a whisleblower without first hand knowledge. This fool had fifth hand knowledge.
it was awesome...Prez was a kitten and the media was a ball of yarn....
How was Ciaramella’s report not fake and made up? The moment Trump released the transcript EC evaporated.
The other day, some moron asked the President of the United States if he would personally sign every check.
Trump was visibly pissed.
Partisan Media Shills update.
On one hand, President Trump should look at any “reporter” who asks such a question and say “This briefing is about the Coronavirus.” Look to another and say “Next question?”
On the other hand, I love to hear him slam, slash, and denigrate these a-hole “reporters”...
I love these daily briefings! So full of positive information and as a bonus, at the end of the briefing, Trump skewers a half dozen libtard ‘journalists’.
Apart from the anti Trump, lame, got-ya attempt questions, all the other questions are pretty stupid.
Wow, sounds like a good briefing!
Trump was as angry as I have seen him. He was spitting fire over what Atkinson, Schiff and the hoaxers tried to do to him.
There was NO laundry list of anything. He simply answered one snarky question after another snarky question.
I like to troll there.
Dan Abrams has really hit rock bottom.
He never shorts the thanks & compliments. Even had one for the media, said some were doing a good job, but then looked at his questioner and said, “Not you.”
ICIG Atkinson changed that rule. That's mainly why he was fired, for allowing "hearsay" to be included in evidence for whistle blowers.
