Posted on 05/11/2020 8:12:55 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
President Donald Trump abruptly ended a coronavirus press briefing on Monday after he was challenged by an Asian American reporter for CBS News why he told her to ask China about coronavirus testing, and later by a CNN correspondent who tried to ask further queries.
Weijia Jiang asked Trump why he was emphasizing that the U.S. was doing better than any other country when it comes to testing.
Why does that matter? Why is this a global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we are still seeing more cases every day? she asked.
Well, they are losing their lives everywhere in the world, Trump said. Maybe that is a question you should ask China. Dont ask me. Ask China that question. When you ask China that question you may get a very unusual answer.
The president then called on CNNs Kaitlan Collins, who was walking to the microphone before Jiang then said, Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?
I am not saying it specifically to anybody. I am saying it to anybody who would ask a nasty question like that, Trump said.
That is not a nasty question, Jiang objected.
Then Trump tried to call on someone else, before Collins said, But you pointed to me. You called on me.
Trump then said, I did, and you didnt respond, and I am now calling on the young lady in the back.
She then tried to ask her question before Trump wrapped up the briefing.
Jiang was born in China but immigrated to West Virginia when she was 2 years old. In March, she said that an unidentified White House official called the coronavirus the kung flu.

Nasty question. Insulting our President. Nasty female reporter. She denies it, but it is a nasty question!
“...she took her mask down so you could see her face...”
Oh, yes. These corrupt light-weights in the MSM cannot even do a respectable job of putting on a show for the “low-information” crowd...(chuckle)...
Honestly, I don’t know how he puts up the barrage of angry, disrespectful, and accusatory questions every single day. Every single day for the last four years he has been made fun of, called every hideous name in the book, mocked, cussed at, lied about, etc. I really don’t know how he has the ability to remain so calm after all this. Any other man or woman would likely crumble in response to the relentless assault. God strengthen this man!
They are **tches. But it’s not just the women. Jim Acosta is #1 **tch reporter lol.
Note how she went to the racist shield right away.
These prestitutes just suck incredibly and horribly bad. They lecture then ask questions to defend their lectures. Leftist turds. Almost all of them
Because they are worthless human beings ?
Acosta is another kind of Karen: He’s a CARON. A vulture circling the press room, waiting for some kind of rotten hearsay to be dropped
Trump needs to get away from those snakes and simply do a “fireside chat” type of presentation to the people.
I think what we saw in that exchange with Weijia Jiang is something that has racial overtones. It is racist to look at an Asian-American White House correspondent and say, Ask China.
Huh? Then its racist for any Chinese person to ask an American about America.
Shes cute but the question is nasty and dumb
If its a competition were winning and saving lives
Competing is anathema to these snowflakes
who are only used to contests where everyone
gets a trophy
China owns the US media.
Or at least segments of it.
Turns the First Amendment on it’s head.
is the First Amendment intended to protect foreign bodies?
Nasty Chinese reporter!
All future press meetings are now done by an avatar...
Realistic sex dolls can be used...
The MSM has no problem viewing the corona virus response of different countries as a competition - as long as they think the U.S./Trump is losing. Remember when that Yahoo reporter asked last week why we were behind South Korea in per capita tests? (BTW, turns out he was wrong) Did Beijing Betty call him out on that? Of course not.
I bet she secretly craves Bat Soup
last year I had a lame young mind full of mush nurse try to pull the same crap about being a racist while I was recovering in the hospital when a foreign doctor gave me bad information and I called her on it. These children should live long enough to know a real racist in their life time. There be allot of growing up fast.
this little chinky bitch, Weijia Jiang, should be banned
from the White House press pool .
Reason = smart ass sassy dipshit
The vibe I get from Humpty Dumpty Stetler, I bet his penis looks like a button.
