Donald Trump continued his battle with media members on Tuesday when he lashed out at a reporter who asked two questions, one on behalf of another reporter who couldn’t make it to the briefing.
Trump told the reporter that he could only ask one question.
The reporter said one of them was on behalf of another reporter in the press pool who wasn’t able to attend the briefing.
The president snapped, “Who cares?” And then claimed that it was “too bad” that he couldn’t make it.
A reporter tries to ask an extra question on behalf of someone who couldn't be there. "Who cares" that they can't be there, Trump says.

Journalist asking for someone who can’t be there.
Trump says “Who cares? If you can’t be here, that’s too bad.”
Just the empathy and understanding we all need to practice social distancing during a pandemic.
Now he’s getting wound up and manic.
