Trump Leaves Reporter Speechless When He Shares ‘Lesson’ Dems Taught Him During Impeachment

This reporter made a big mistake asking Trump this question

By Sophie O’Hara | February 12, 2020

Trump really hit it home with this one.

During his press conference today, he fired off a response that had the press silent during most of the duration of it.

A reporter was foolish enough to bring up Lisa Murkowski’s disagreement with Trump on the Roger Stone case, which the reporter followed up by stating “some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment. What lesson did you learn from impeachment?”

And his response was brutal.

So brutal in fact, that the reporter nary said a word during Trump’s rant.

Trump responded, “That the Democrats are crooked, they’ve got a lot of crooked things going, that they’re vicious, that they shouldn’t have brought impeachment and that my poll numbers are 10 points higher because of fake news like NBC, which reports that news very inaccurately, probably more inaccurately than CNN if that’s possible.”

Trump also took a shot at MSNBC, referring to them as “MSDNC,” adding, “I think they are among the dishonest reporters of the news.” [The Daily Wire]

Watch the video:


That was quite the response.

How can any reporter think they can go toe to toe with Trump and survive to tell the tale?

Didn’t he learn anything from Jim Acosta?
