back to him, and you could see Chump getting edgier by the second.

"On March 4, you said..."

"Then again on March 10, you said..."

"What do you say to the people who are concerned..."

The blood was draining from Chump's face as Acosta queried.

So much better seeing Jim Acosta. He is a real journalist.

It's funny Trump started calling reporters, starting with Yamiche Alcindor yesterday, "snarky." He just picked up a new word to use, and he won't stop. He thinks that's really going to sting, the dumb ####.

Acosta was totally honed, and the reporter following him headed right for the bogus charge of accusing hospital personnel of stealing vital supplies.

It's WONDERFUL seeing people starting to bear down on this black hole in a baggy suit.

"WHY is that a nasty question? You said it, and now you're saying something different. YOU may not take responsibility, but it's our JOB to hold you responsible."

We all know exactly what a "fair and balanced" question that would have been considered if a Democratic president had made false or misleading predictions. rump would be ripping up the twitter machine, calling for Obama's head on a pike.

64. I'm going to have to be the respectful voice of dissent here

Trump was on the best behavior he can muster today and is back in line with Fauci's scientific guidance. His scripted statements passed CNN's fact check, and he even praised the healthcare workers on the front lines which he hasn't been great about. He was well-prepared with a lot of concrete numbers as well.

As far as this crisis goes, we all want him to succeed and he's struggling. I'd like to hear questions and answers that focus on how we move forward, especially when he's more or less in the zone where we need him to be.

Obviously he couldn't have been more wrong about the 15 cases disappearing to zero early in this crisis. That statement and all the other issues he was on the wrong side of will stick with him and haunt him in November. Now is not the time to dredge it up, it simply isn't the most pressing news of the day.

75. Not holding him accountable is how he's gotten away with all his grift

and crimes. So he finally gets a clue and everyone is just supposed to let it go? Do you believe in accountability? Heís a grown man who should be able to answer to the American people for putting us in such danger on nothing more than his ignorant whim. Or because he wants to get even, or because he feels slighted and criticized rightfully? People have and will die directly because of him.

What is the press for in our Democracy? It holds the unofficial title of being the Fourth Estate. Itís job is the pursuit of truth and facts no matter who they need to go after. You canít just decide that because theyíre embarrassing you that you can shut them up or throw them out. Especially not if youíre the President of the US. Presidents donít get the privilege of having their crimes ignored. The President isnít our boss. Heís our employee.

We're at war. And as the adage goes, you go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had. I'd rather Biden were in there planning our next move, but Trump's our general at the moment. So it's not about skirting accountability, it's about taking a war footing.

Biden and Sanders appear to be doing this. There have been a few swipes here and there, but they aren't on the front page bashing Trump every day. Think about it.

Trump can wave his hand with the DPA and accomplish things that all the governors combined cannot.

80. Evidently you think the press should keep us ignorant.

Theyíre job is to tell us the truth. War footing or not. And if you think war is so sacred that no one should ever criticize warmongering leaders then you must believe Democracy is conveniently malleable for the sake of momentary misguided expediency.

Every President has been hounded by the press. Almost all of them took it pretty well though they were obviously uncomfortable. Except Trump who attacks and whines and gets even and bans and insults on a personal level.

If you or anyone prefers to be polite during war rhetoric by all means you, as an American who has that freedom, hold your criticism until some false moment when you allow yourself the right to criticize. Of course when the war is over what good does it do to speak out about it?
