New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo defended President Trump and ripped the media for not showing the proper respect to the president. Wow. He must want something from Trump.
Cuomo told WAMC radio that the media has taken a turn for the worse and now uses a “nastier tone,” which he said he has even noticed at his press conferences. He then called out the media and said it’s a “disrespect that never existed.”
“The way they question President Trump at some of these press conferences is just – I’ve never heard that tone with the president,” Cuomo said.
“There are reporters who just are unprofessional, don’t know the facts and ask really biased questions,” Cuomo said.
“You want to say ‘well I don’t like the president and I disrespect him,’ I know but it’s still the office of the president.”
From Fox News:
White House reporters were left befuddled by President Donald Trump’s brief statement about the stock market Tuesday afternoon, with one remarking afterward it was “weird as s–t.”
Trump spoke in the White House briefing room for a little over a minute to tout the Dow Jones Industrial Average passing 30,000 for the first time, calling it a “sacred number” and congratulating the American people for the milestone. He then departed to shouted questions from assembled reporters.
A hot mic on CSPAN caught reporters sharing their surprised reactions after Trump left, with one saying, “that was weird as s**t.” Another appeared to say it was “one of the stranger” briefings he had attended.
