Trump Snaps After Jim Acosta Says He’s Whitewashing The Pandemic: These Briefings Are Just ‘Happy Talk’

Donald Trump lashed out at CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Friday after the reporter questioned whether the hearings were whitewashing the challenges facing the government during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I hear from a lot of people who see these briefings as sort of ‘happy talk’ briefings,” said Acosta. “And some of the officials and you paint a rosy picture of what is happening around the country. If you look at some of these questions, do we have enough masks? No. Do we have enough tests? No. Do we have enough PPE? No.”

“Why would you say no?” Trump rhetorically asked. “The answer is yes. I think the answer is yes. You asked me do we have enough masks. Yes.”

“We hear from doctors, we hear from health experts,” Acosta fired back.

“You didn’t say that,” Trump burst to say. “A lot of it is fake news. A lot of it is fake news.”

“When the doctors and the medical officials come on our air and say, they don’t have enough tests—”

“On your air, because if they don’t say that, otherwise you won’t have them on,” Trump snapped. “You shouldn’t be asking that kind of a question.”
